Thriving Ivory – Better Than Alone lyrics

I had one of those bad days
Yeah, it left me a scar
One of those where the sun don't shine like she used to
I had one of those bad dreams
Yeah, I woke up in a sweat (sweat)
And I rolled into nothing rolled into no one

So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how I do say what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own

Woke up in a church
Some guy feeling needed on life
I said, "Hey, what a bore if it's all that simple."
See I'd marry the search
Wedding bells if the search had a soul
But today, I know that it's not that simple

So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how I do say what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own

A question for you.
Did you really believe in me or was I, just a blanket for you to hold on to?
See, I'm all outta words
Should I call it a night?
One of those where the moon don't shine like she used to

So lay me down with a ghost
Lay me down with a ghost

[X2]
So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how I do say what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own

When anything's better than alone
Oh, anything's better than alone
Anything's better than alone
Oh, anything's better than alone

    Ever since she left, life is not the same. Nothing brings as much joy as it used to, and the darkness brings more comfort than the light because at least in the dark, the mind can wander into memories of the comfort she once brought. He'd rather lie with the ghost she left behind, as painful as it may be, because it's not nearly as painful as facing each day on his own. He desperately questions whether she truly loved him. But he'll never get the answer. So he must create the answer out of sorrow and longing.
