"We Are The Normal" as written by George Tutuska, Robbie Takac, John Rzeznik and Paul Westerberg....
It's a beautiful day, I heard everybody say
The sun shines down for all of us
Just the same, you know I like the rain
That ain't so obvious

It's a beautiful sight, I guess everybody's right
This day belongs to all of us
Even still, I like mine with a chill
That ain't so obvious

[Chorus]
We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why
We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

It's a beautiful life, and I've got it in my sights
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful sound
When my life comes crashin' down
That ain't so obvious
It's a beautiful sin, and I'm doin' it again
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful life, and I've got it in my sights
Ain't that so obvious?

[Chorus: x3]

    General CommentJohn wrote the musical score on an LP and mailed it to the lead singer of his all time favorite band (I don't recall the guys name, or the name of the group). The lead singer listened to th tune, wrote the lyrics, and mailed it back to John, for the Goo Goo Dolls to perform.

    General Commentyou gotta love the GGD for songs like this... of course they made songs like these (naked, and ain't that unsual are another) before they they became a bunch of sel... oops nevermind ^_^
    I mean come on. The full sound, and lyrics (that reads like thoughts of someone who mull over & hangs out too much in his room alone) is much enjoyable than gutterflower's polished commercial sound and (almost) cliche lyrics. dizzy up the girl was a good compromise between the two.

    General CommentThink this song is about being smashed on some illegal substance or the other, the beautiful sin that aint for all of us.

    General CommentAh, I definitely feel that now Chymes! Previously I've just been too caught up in the sound and the simple genius that are the lines:

    "We are the normal
    We live and we die
    With no reason why"

    Am, as ever, in awe of the GGD!
