    Some phrases in a song that I'm writing, are they correct?

    Hello everybody, I'm looking for some help here since I'm writing a song in English and there's some sentences that I'm not sure about, let me know if they makes total sense to you.



    1. Now I don't want them close to me... (is it right like that? Or do I use near instead close?)
    2. Like an uncontented dog... (Is that understandable?)
    3. I took a path away from them...
    4. The reasons why I chose this life without them (here I'm talking about some friends I left behind, is it understandable 'this life without them'?)



    So, if anybody can help me I would be really thankful.
    Cheers!

    1. Close is better.
    2. Like a discontented dog uses a proper word. "Uncontented" isn't used.
    3 and 4 are OK.
