How to Be Alone

Early morning hours got me dreaming of your face
And I can’t sleep much longer without you here
Waking up and tossing, turning
Telling myself this is learning
How to be alone this year

And all my friends say I’m doing so well
I’m being so brave, as far as anyone can tell,
I’m fine
I miss you all the time
I’m fine
I miss you all the time

I can’t help but wonder what I did to make you go
I guess they say all good things gotta end
And I can only hope that I can make it on my own
Back to where I started from again

And all the books say I’m doing it right
But on the long days, the books don’t hold me quite as tight.
It’s fine
I just miss you all the time
It’s fine,
I miss you all the time
All the time
All the time
All the time

Yeah I’m tired of being angry
And I’m tired of being strong
And I’m tired of being treated
Like it’s me who did you wrong
Like a knife into my back
Can’t forget that kind of hurt
Do you think about the past
Or are your memories a blur?
‘Cause it’s almost been a year
I still think about that day
How I let you disappear
How you let me get away
No, I’ll never understand the things
That you could never say
Never say

It’s fine
Yeah it’s fine
I miss you all the time, all the time

All the time
All the time
All the time
All the time
All the time
All the time
All the time
All the time
