"Disappointed" as written by Glen Hansard, David Odlum, Joseph Doyle, Colm Macconiomaire and David John Hingerty....
The future takes us where it leads
Our heads just go beneath the waves
Time tells all and we obey
But how can I be mad at you

You did what you did
And you followed through
You were the one who always said
'Forget it and move on'

But I'm not sad, I'm just disappointed
And I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed

Well the years they get on top of you
The working load it tallied up
And you went down
Beneath it all like anybody would

And I'm just ambling on in this town
I can't get out and it drags me down
And these words don't really fit what I'm feeling now

But I'm not sad, I'm just disappointed
And I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed

And you're not lost, you're just misdirected
And we're not going, oh nowhere

    General CommentOh this song gets me every time...it's like when your parents talk to you after you did something wrong, and they're like "We're not angry at you...we're just disappoined," which is way worse anyway

    General CommentAbsolutely. This song is bereft of all hope, and all light. In many way, disappointment is so much more crushing than an all out row with someone, or than a rain of tears. It's almost numbness, and almost as if part of you expected the relationship (as it is in the first verse) or the friendship (second verse) to fail anyway.

    General Commentthis song is very much about a friend who commited who commited suicide. ''Well the years they get on top of you
    The working load it tallied up
    And you went down''
