"Bright Side" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
Break everything you love
Afterall there's no hope or god above
Looking at the bright side, at the bright side

Kill everything inside
Its better to be dead than awlays have to hide
Looking at the bright side, at the bright side

Give me just one more chance to think about it
There's more to life than said
And there's more to me than met
And I need to pick myself up off the ground before I sink into it.

Why do I feel like this
Whenever I get up I'm right back in the shit
Looking at the bright side, at the bright side
As long as I get my fix
I watch the pain disolve and there's nothing left but bliss
Looking at the bright side, at the bright side

Give me just one more chance to think about it
There's more to life than said
And there's more to me than met
And I need to pick myself up off the ground before sink into it

I need to rebuild my mind so I'm strong again
I need to rebuild my life so I'm full within

Cause there's more to life than said
And there's more to me than met
And I need to pick myself up off the ground before sink into it

    General CommentMy take on this song is his life currently is shit, he is depressed, nothing is going his way. He has lost his hope, his faith, everything. Yet, he doesn't feel this is what life is. He knows there is more to it than what he has experienced and he wants to look on the bright side that there is more and that he needs to pick himself up and find this bright side of life. He wants to change his life so he can be "full again" not depressed and empty.

    General CommentMy life then, my life now, between a 13 year gap. Where did I go wrong within that time frame? If I got through it then, I'll get through it again. Without help just like before.

    My Interpretationto me this song means when everything in your life seems to be going wrong you have to look at the bright side of life to help you make it threw, i dont no if this relates to addiction or maybe just a time when he was really down about something and didnt think there was anywhere to go from there, but being a former addict(thank god I stopped) this song really inspires me to keep going in life and get what i really want instead of just screwing it up.

    General Commenthaha nevermind, stupid question
    he's basically saying that he (and life in general) is more complex than people think and that you are the only one who can judge yourself correctly.

    it is impossible to explain life, and it is impossible to explain everything he lives for - only the individual can decide what is right for them

    --------that was only one part of the song, the whole song in general, I think is about overcomplicating things. We as humans often do not see the true beauty in small things, and the bad things we magnify when they should not be. ITS ABOUT PICKING YOURSELF UP!!! if you're "sinking", pick yourself up because you will appreciate it in the long run.

    General CommentJuggalo420, what an original three word sentence, you must have typed that in between bong loads. If that's the case, then NOT everyone benefits from the creative powers of hemp.
