"I Wish I Felt Nothing" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
Say when you're alone
It's better 'cause nobody knows you
When no one's your friend
It's better 'cause nobody leaves you
So you turned your back
On a world that you could never have
'Cause your heart's been cracked
And everyone else's is goin' mad

But I hear voices
And I see colors
But I wish I felt nothing
Then it might be easy for me
Like it is for you

Now all of these people
Come up from deep holes
Pullin' you down
And it's just no use
When all the abuse follows you down
By the morning you've gone
Leavin' me here all alone
Sayin' it's no mystery
I know that nobody here needs me

But I hear voices
And I see colors
But I wish I felt nothing
Then it might be easy for me
Like it is for you

And I know you believe that you and me don't belong here
And the worst we could do
Is keep trying to pretend we care

But I hear voices
And I see colors
But I wish I felt nothing
Then it might be easy for me
Like it is for you
Like it is for you
Like it is for you

    General CommentThis song is a perfect description of the intense feelings after a relationship is over. So accurate. I still wish I felt nothing.

    That never fails to bring tears to my eyes. This song got me through those months without her - and taught me the meaning of hurt. - I'll never make the same mistake twice.

    General Comment"I wish I felt nothing." That about sums it all up right there. Anyone who's lost love knows why it would be easier to have no feeling than deal with the pain.

    General Comment''But I hear voices

    that might be about the fight before a breakup ending in some kind of violence..

    ''But I wish I felt nothing
    Then it might be easy for me
    Like it is for you''

    when she left him she felt all high and mighty and still remained how she was before they went out and he is just in the slums and his life went downhill from all the overflowing emotions.

    General CommentSounds like the end of a relationship... where someone doesn't care... and the other one wishes that they didn't... 'cause, obviously, it's painful. It can really relate to almost anything, though, just like the simple idea/act of pretending to not care about something... so isn't so painful to think about/face.

    Heh... that feels redundant. Oh well.

    General CommentThis song completely describes my relationship with my boyfriend/fiance. I can tell its ending he and I rarely talk and its literaly making me die a little more each day, but for him he is so cold that he dont give a shit.

    So because of my problems I think this song is about a relationship thats pretty much dead and it kills the guy, but the girl he is with dont even seem like she cares. So he goes on with this relationship seeing all the problems while the girl says everything is ok but its not.

    "And I know you believe
    That you and me don't belong here
    And the worst we could do
    Is keep trying to pretend we care"


    This is my favorite line. Its saying he knows she dont care and he knows that she doesnt want to be there in that relationship. And its getting harder and harder to pretend that they still love one another.
