Jelly Roll – Better Off Alone Lyrics

Better Off Alone Lyrics By Jelly Roll

Drowning in bourbon
Numbing my pain
Fighting with demons, oh Lord, I just wish that they go away
There’s no light in the day
Don’t know how much more I can take, oh no
Afraid of tomorrow, the end of this bottle ain’t that far away

I don’t know where I belong
I’ve walked a million miles and now I’m so far from home
And I’m begging and pleading for someone to help me
Something won’t let me lie down where I belong
There’s no use in carrying on, oh no
I’m better off alone

At the end of my rope
I’m so close to the edge
In fear of falling ’cause I know there’s no one to catch me down there
So I had these scars
They say make you a man
Afraid of a feeling that bring back the demons that’s stuck in my head

I don’t know where I belong
I’ve walked a million miles and now I’m so far from home
And I’m begging and pleading for someone to help me
Something won’t let me lie down where I belong
There’s no use in carrying on, oh no
I’m better off alone, yes I am
I’m better off alone

I know I need you right now
Lord just somehow
Won’t you come and help this old soul
And I know, yes I know
I’m better off alone
I’m better off alone
