Chorus: I'd rather be alone than be with the wrong one
So just move along unless you're a strong one

My father's been without his wife
For the last 13 years of his life
My grandmother survived 27 years
Without her husband to calm her fears
And now a friend
Has seen the end
Of a lifelong partner
It was so hard for
Me to see her alone
Facing the unknown
Without her soulmate
How long the hole takes
To be filled is a mystery
Can she survive the misery
Long enough to escape history
And find laughter
In the next chapter
Am I leaving the right legacy
Or will my seeds fall short of pregnancy
And never make it to infancy
Did I spend too much time looking at the distant sea
To understand these instants we
Could've achieved intimacy
Or did I look ahead just long enough
To give you all my strongest love
I've learned I cannot create a song to touch
Still

Chorus:

I've seen relationships I don't understand
And I can't get close enough to see the other hand
Because the first one's giving me the finger
While showing me the ring that lingers
As a symbol of freedom lost
It's simple yet I see the cost
Of missing signals of free love bought
There's ten grand
On that hand
And a life of prison without boundaries
The devil's minions have not found me
To confine me
To that inescapable cell
My life won't be a living hell
Because I'm strong enough to be alone
For me it would be wrong to love someone unknown
She has to make me better than who I am right now
So far that's something that I've rarely found
She can't try to change me
Strangely
It's hard to find a lover
Comfortable without covers
Naked in her own skin
Even when she's bathing in her own sin
I'm not perfect and I'll never be
But I will forever see
That I'm a good person
And I'll keep learning
We need to grow together
Not apart to love forever
We can't be afraid of ourselves or else we'll realize those fears
And conceal eyes from tears
That should rain freely
So we can plainly see
Each other's pain
Instead of playing lover's games
We can stay and love for sane
Solutions on this crazy planet
Damn it
I need a partner who understands
And can get close enough to hold my other hand
So we can make some wondrous plans
And bathe together in this boundless universal sea
Until I've found this universe you'll see
That

Chorus:
