Better Off With Nobody

Story Behind The Song

I meet a lot of people in a lot of well wishing volunteer activities. I get asked all to often why I'm still single, the divorce was 10 years ago, etc. I thought I would write a song where "nobody" is that "special somebody" in that I've come to the realization that I'm better off with nobody... for now.

Lyrics

I've been through some rough times - I've had some really great days

This last rough time around, - we decided to go our separate ways

All my friends keep saying - what has now become cliche

"You're better off without her", - "you don't need her anyway" and, -
"you'll find somebody great"

I'm learning a lot, about a lot of things,

Now that I've made it through the part that stings

This one observation today kind of has a unique ring...

I'm better off with Nobody - Nobody'll never do me wrong
Nobody's the reason I sing this song - Nobody's even singing along

Nobody's always there for me. - Nobody treats me like a V.I.P.

Maybe someday I'll find that SOMEbody -

but for now, I'm better off with Nobody

Now, I'm not saying I don't miss - having someone to hold

Someone to go to the movies with, - a cuddle buddy when it's cold

It just gets a little old sometimes, - hearing from everyone that "knows best".

I know I'll make it through this mess, - That's why I'm not depressed -

I know I'm truly Blessed

I'm Blessed to be with Nobody
- Nobody'll never do me wrong

Nobody's the reason I sing this song - Nobody's even singing along

Nobody's always there for me. - Nobody treats me like a V.I.P.

Maybe someday I'll find that SOMEbody - but for now, I'm better off with Nobody

Maybe someday I'll find that somebody - but for now, I'm better off with Nobody

Some solid songwriting chops!
