"Sad Songs" as written by Mark M Weinberg and Matt Nathanson....
been waiting up
for you to rescue me
to come around
and cover everything
relying on my best memories
to breathe for me, breathe for me
i'm so much better than all this...all of this

i'm tired of singing all the sad songs in my head
but i can't find enough of anything
to drown out what you said
and sometimes i find i catch myself
letting you back in
but i'm so tired of singing all
the sad songs in my head

i can still smell
summer on your skin
i can still remember giving in
wrapped all up in your hips
and in your sheets
it felt great falling, great falling
i'm so much better than all this...
all of this

i'm tired of singing all the sad songs in my head
but i can't find enough of anything
to drown out what you said
and sometimes i find i catch myself
letting you back in
but i'm so tired of singing all
the sad songs in my head

feel so faded. so far gone
nothing suprises me anymore
i feel so faded. so far gone
nothing suprises me anymore
i'm tired of singing all the sad songs in my head
but i can't find enough of anything
to drown out what you said
and sometimes i find i catch myself
letting you back in
but i'm so tired of singing all
the sad songs in my head

    General CommentThis song just hits me everytime I hear it! I think he's talking about giving in to someone who hurt him so he can forget those sad songs, if even for short time. Matt rawks!

    General CommentIt's one of those songs that can reach 50,000 people and it can match their situation perfectly.
    Matt did an incredible job with this.
    Summer Love. Caught in the summer bliss, ended badly. Bitter listening to the sad songs. Sick of it. Missing the person but still feeling like you were so much better and that you were smarter than to fall for ther person.

    General CommentI think he's trying hard to get over someone and it's hard not to let himself get wrapped back into it. She keeps pulling him back in and he's tired of it, but he "can't find anything of anything" to drown her out.

    "Sometimes I find I catch myself letting you back in."

    General CommentPerfect song. It captures the great parts of falling; the smells, the physical parts, the giving yourself over to that person. And then it still holds true to the difficulty of getting over that person.

    General CommentIt's like when you break up with a person and that night the only reason you can get to sleep is because you're dead tired from crying, and you keep waking up in the middle of the night, and it hits you all over again what just happened. And the whole next day at work or school or whatever you try to think of anything, focus on anything, sing any song to keep your mind off of the thoughts that keep racing (can't find enough of anything to drown out what you said). But honestly nothing makes those thoughts go away until they're ready to go away. It's like you want to hate the person for breaking you're heart, but then sometimes those little memories are what keep you alive everyday. Even though it kills you to remember, they're too sweet to not think of.
