I want to hear drums and my hearts a drum
I guess we never know what to become
Well I didn't know that this was such a problem
It's gonna get better when we solve them

I try to try to lose my head
But I wish, wish, wish that you were always there
And I try to try to lose my head
But I wish, wish, wish that I was dead

I'm on birthday cards and on a big trip
If this wouldn't happen then I'd bite my lip
But I didn't know that this was such a problem
It's gonna get better when we solve them

And I try to try to lose my head
But I wish, wish, wish that you were always there
And I try to try to lose my head
But I wish, wish, wish that I was dead

But I didn't know that this was such a problem
It's gonna get better when we solve them

And I try to try to lose my head
And I wish, wish, wish that you were always here
And I try to try to lose my head
And I wish, wish, wish that I was dead

Wish I was dead

    General Comment:i cant beleive noones posted. this is an awesom song its really mellow but its got a good beat.
    i think of it like it being about after you break up and your still friends or more then friends and you miss them and you still want them and you try to get angry but you cant because you like them too much. i guess in the begining hes saying he wants to know what he wants and what his hearts saying

    General Comment:i think it's all to easy to think of songs as being about breakups because it's been done so often. it could certainly apply to this song but it seems to me that this is written from the point of view of a child missing their parents. this is based on 'I'm on birthday cards and on a big trip'... just seems very childish and the 'wa wa wa'.

    General Comment:Actually, the original version of the song was released in 2003 on the Scandinavian version of Howl Howl Gaff Gaff. For the international version "sound is the word", "Wish I was dead", "end up behind", "never ever" and "my friend and the ink on his fingers" were replaced by "oh, sweetheart", "a track and a train", "go sadness", "hurry up let's go" and "seagull".
    I've got both albums.

    General Comment:ok well just like fyi: the oc has very good songs on their album, obviously because this is one of them..so 'unfortunately'? i don't think so....
    but yes i love this song. i feel like it's about love, but no one except the artist can be for sure i guess. but i love it and it is deep and mellow and catchy!!

    General Comment:This song is about attempting not to think about what's bothering you, and how it ultimately takes so much effort that in the end you feel, yes, that it would be easier to die.

    I want to say that this is more about love, but the childhood theory is definitely interesting. Kudos for thinking outside of the box.

    The O.C. mixes host a variety of obscure music. This particular one included Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" and Stars' "Your Ex-lover is Dead", personally, two of my favorite songs. It can't be all that unfortunate, eh?
