"It's My Life (Talk Talk cover)" as written by and Billy Joel....
It's funny how I find myself in love with you
If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose
One half won't do
I've asked myself
How much do you commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends

Funny how I blind myself
I never knew
If I was sometimes played upon
Afraid to lose
I'd tell myself what good do you do
Convince myself

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends

I've asked myself
How much do you commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
It never ends

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
It never ends

It's my life (it's my life)
Don't you forget (don't you forget)
Caught in the crowd (caught in the crowd)
It never ends (it never ends)

    General CommentThis song is about this person in a relationship with someone who's treating her badly.

    "It's funny how I found myself in love with you"
    (He's doing all this stuff to her, yet she still loves him)

    "If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose"
    (Even if she could reason with herself and walk away she wouldn't)

    "One half won't do"
    (She wants this person to commit fully to her, she doesn't want just half)

    "I've asked myself
    How much do you
    Commit yourself?"
    (She wonders how much he really commits himself to her and their relationship)

    "Funny how I blind myself
    I never knew"
    (She refuses to see the flaws in the relationship or in her partner)

    "If I was sometimes played upon
    Afraid to lose"
    (He's probably lied to her a thousand times, but she refuses to call him on it because she's afraid to lose him.)

    "I'd tell myself what good do you do?
    Convince myself"
    (She wonders what good he really does her)

    "It's my life
    Don't you forget
    It's my life
    It never ends"
    (In the chores I think she's saying that it's her life je shouldn't forget that she can end this relationship anytime, but she doesn't want to.)

    That's what I think it means, I don't understand what people are saying when they say this song is about animals. There were animals in the original video video with Talk Talk, but I'm not sure if the song has anything to do with animals. I think they were just showing life in all it's forms when they showed them in the video.

    Song Meaningit's not your fault when a half committed narcissist won't return to you what you invest in them. stop convincing yourself to stay. it's your life. you can't get it back. get out and find a better mate.

    General Commentlove the video, and the music is awesome but a bit too synthesized. as for the lyrics.. well.. those could leave a little something to be desired. i think this was an attempt at appealing to the masses. to me, this doesn't represent no doubt's true style.
