Better Off Dead

  • She said she wants to end it all when she's all alone in her room
    She cries
    The way she feels inside is too much for her
    When all you got is these four walls
    It's not that hard to feel so small
    Or even exist at all
    How come no one heard her when she said

    Maybe I'm better off dead
    If I was would it finally be enough
    To shut out all those voices in my head?
    Maybe I'm better off dead
    Better off dead!
    Did you hear a word
    Hear a word I said?
    This is not where I belong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Gone, gone
    This is not where I belong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

    She doesn't know she's beautiful
    Because no one's ever told her so
    And the demons that she has, are all she knows
    And maybe she can fall in love with someone in her life that she could trust
    And tell her she's enough (Have someone tell her she's enough?)
    How come no one heard her when she said

    Maybe I'm better off dead
    If I was would it finally be enough
    To shut out all those voices in my head?
    Maybe I'm better off dead
    Better off dead!
    Did you hear a word
    Hear a word I said?
    This is not where I belong
    You gonna miss me when I'm gone
    This is not where I belong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

    When all you got is these four walls
    It's not hard to feel so small
    When all you got is these four walls
    It's not hard to feel so small
    All she wanted was to be enough
    All she wanted was to be enough
    So what does it take?
    Maybe it's not too late
    Yeah no one heard her when she said

    Maybe I'm better off dead
    If I was would it finally be enough
    To shut out all those voices in my head?
    Maybe I'm better off dead
    Better off dead!
    Did you hear a word
    Hear a word I said?
    This is not where I belong
    You gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Gone, gone
    This is not where I belong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Gone, gone
    This is not where I belong
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone Writer/s: JOHN WILLIAM FELDMANN, KELLIN QUINN, NICHOLAS FURLONG
