lyrics

Lyrics:

If there's one thing that you should learn,
It's maybe you should be concerned,
About me, about me,

The secret's out, I'm telling it,
There's a Rebel inside Eliot,
And she's leaving, don't you follow me,

Cause I'm better off alone,
I'm better off alone,
I'm better when I'm holding onto nothing,
When I've got room to roam,

You can try and win my heart,
But you should know before you start,
That it beats in syncopation, with the city, rarely with the nation

I wrapped your flag around my neck,
To try and keep my pulse in check,
But it's all a waste, you hate this place,
And our bones break when we embrace

That's why we're better off alone
We're better off alone
Better when we're holding
When I've got room to roam

Yeah we're better off alone
Better off alone
Better when there's nobody beside me
So much better on my own

On my oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-own

On my oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-own

My lungs are set to burst,
This house is haunted, maybe I'm cursed
My lungs are set to burst,
This house is haunted, maybe something much worse
My dreams are dark and cold
I'm lost and alone on a road I don't know
Dragging a chest that's too heavy to hold
Full of the feelings that I never showed
Full of the secrets that I never told
Chained round my knees now they buckle and fold

That's why I'm better off alone
I'm better off alone
I'm better when I'm holding nothing
When I've got room to roam
Yeah I'm better off alone
I'm better off alone
I'm better when there's nobody beside me,
So much better on my own,
On my oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh
oh-oh-oh-own
