"Real World" as written by and Alan Eugene/irwin Jackson....
Strange, the view from here
Words we spoke, forgotten at the time
Now replay in my mind
What went wrong, what was right
Looking back, I never was there for you
You didn't say, but I know it's true

I can't find the real world alone
Every time I think I've won
I hear your voice inside, questioning
Where have you gone
Can't you remember feeling so alone
You always had the answer that I could not see

I can't find the real world
I can't find the real world
I can't find the real world alone
I can't find the real world
I can't find the real world
I can't find the real world alone

    General CommentAbsolutely beautiful song. A classmate gave me an AMV (anime music video) of "Princess Mononoke" that was set to this song.

    This song is about looking back and regretting. The singer had someone he loved dearly, yet he was never there for them when they needed him the most. Even though he was never told that *explicitly*, he knew it deep down inside. He also recalls the words they spoke, which seem to have been spoken in anger at the time and forgotten as quickly as they were said, though the damage was still done.

    This person realizes he can't find the "real world" by himself. He can't find out what life is really like without the other person, and every time he thinks he's close to finding out what life's all about, he can almost hear this person questioning what he's doing. In the end, he regrets that he never saw what was right in front of him all along.
