Adams Song

i never thought
i'd die alone.
i laughed the loudest
who'd have known?
i traced the cord back to the wall,
no wonder it was never plugged in at all.
i took my time,
i hurried up.
the choice was mine,
i didn't think enough.
i'm too depressed,
to go on.
you'll be sorry when i'm gone.

i never conquered rarely came,
sixteen just held such better days.
days when i still felt alive,
we couldn't wait to get outside,
the world was wide,
too late to try.
the tour was over we'd survived.
i couldn't wait till i got home,
to pass the time in my room alone.

i never thought
i'd die alone.
another six months i'll be unknown.
give all my things,
to all my friends.
you'll never step foot in my room again.
you'll close it off,
board it up,
remember the time that i spilt the cup,
of apple juice, in the hall,
please tell mom this is not her fault.

i never conquered rarely came,
sixteen just held such better days.
days when i still felt alive,
we couldn't wait to get outside,
the world was wide,
too late to try.
the tour was over we'd survived.
i couldn't wait till i got home,
to pass the time in my room alone.

i never conquered rarely came,
tomorrow holds such better days.
days when i can feel alive,
when i can't wait to get outside,
the world was wide,
and time goes by.
the tour is over,
i'd survived.
i can't wait till i get home,
to pass the night in my room alone.
