"Some Of Us" as written by and James/stelfox Walsh....
Heard you today.
That isn't my name.
You were fast asleep.
Forget what he did.
Can I be the kid,
For your soul to keep?

Some of us laugh.
Some of us cry.
Some of us smoke.
Some of us lie.
But it's all just the way,
That we cope with our lives.

I've grown to see,
The philosophy,
Of my own mistrust.
We all have our faults.
Mine come in waves,
That you turn to rust.


I've been hangin'
Onto somethin'.
You keep laughin',
Awe inspirin'.


[Repeat Chorus]

    General Commentah, i absotutely love this song. i think it's just about the way people ::cough:: cope with their lives. There are so many behaviors that people issue to deal with the stress and pressures that plague our lives

    General CommentI love this song too. The first lines however do suggest that infidelity may have governed some of the verses in this song. Or perhaps about a relationship that is on the rocks do to someones faults or perhaps not being able to cope with the mistreatment of a past lover and that affecting the relationship.

    "Heard you today, that isn't my name, you were fast asleep,
    Forget what he did, can I be the kid for your soul to keep?"

    The chorus might have been written to comfort his SO. Perhaps part of it is about her having trouble with her past and things she's done to cope with herself and he's trying to say it doesn't matter and we've all done things we're not proud of.

    "I've grown to see the philosophy of my own mistrust,
    We all have our faults, mine come in waves that you turn to rust,"

    "She's losing control, she's coming down fast,"

    Thats just kinda my take on the song since I don't exactly know what it's about through his own w.o.m. it could also be about his own faults but I think the lyrics suggest that he's definitely talking to someone in this song...a woman..and I just think it could be his love interest. Ya know...could be wrong though I dunno ha. Great song
