Verse:
I never thought I'd die alone 
I laughed the loudest, who'd have known? 
I traced the cord back to the wall 
No wonder it was never plugged in at all 

I took my time, I hurried up 
The choice was mine, I didn't think enough 
I'm too depressed to go on 
You'll be sorry when I'm gone 

1st Bridge

Pre-Chorus:
I never conquered, rarely came 
16 just held such better days 
Days when I still felt alive 
We couldn't wait to get outside 

Chours:
The world was wide, too late to try 
The tour was over, we'd survived 
I couldn't wait 'til I got home 
To pass the time in my room alone 

Intro

Verse:
I never thought I'd die alone 
Another six months, I'll be unknown 
Give all my things to all my friends 
You'll never step foot in my room again 

You'll close it off, board it up 
Remember the time that I spilled the cup 
Of apple juice in the hall 
Please tell mom this is not her fault 

1st Bridge

Pre-Chorus:
I never conquered, rarely came 
16 just held such better days 
Days when I still felt alive 
We couldn't wait to get outside 

Chours:
The world was wide, too late to try 
The tour was over, we'd survived 
I couldn't wait 'til I got home 
To pass the time in my room alone 

Interlude

Chours:
I never conquered, rarely came 
Tomorrow holds such better days 
Days when I can still feel alive 
When I can't wait to get outside 

The world is wide, the time goes by 
The tour is over, I've survived 
I can't wait 'til I get home 
To pass the time in my room alone.  

Enjoy!
