  • I got in trouble
    The first time my dad saw me dance with the devil
    How are we so opposite?
    I lived with your sister
    My first home since mom had left
    And I wrote my first song with him in the basement

    And then he said goodbye way too soon
    And this don't feel right without you

    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'd trade it, trade it, I would trade it all for you
    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'm lonely, lonely, lonely without you

    I got in trouble
    The first time the cops saw me dance with the devil
    I ended up in handcuffs and then you called your sister
    She cried when she picked me up
    Goddamn, how I miss her
    'Cause she didn't give a fuck

    And then she said goodbye way too soon
    And this don't feel right without you

    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'd trade it, trade it, I would trade it all for you
    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'm lonely, lonely, lonely without you

    The last time I saw you (fuck)
    I cried, I wished you had more time left
    The last time I heard you
    They held the phone, you took your last breath
    The last time I saw you (saw you)
    I cried, I wished you had more time left
    The last time I heard you (heard you)
    They held the phone, you took your last breath

    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'd trade it, trade it, I would trade it all for you
    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'd trade it, trade it, I'd trade it all for you
    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I'd trade it, train it, I'd trade it all for you
    Lonely, lonely even when the room is full
    I hate this, I'm jaded, and I trade it all for you

    "Boy, it was just a dangerous birth
    His umbilical cord was stuck around his neck
    And so I ended up, undoing the umbilical cord and uh
    Well he was bigger than a normal child
    I don't know what it was but he had uh, uh
    He had a heart problem, and they didn't think he would live" Writer/s: Nicholas Alex Long, Richard Colson Baker, Travis Barker
