"Upside Down" as written by and Jack Hody Johnson....
Who's to say
What's impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it's wings
There's no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away

Who's to say
I can't do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren't always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found
I don't want this feeling to go away

Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Is this how it's supposed to be
Is this how it's supposed to be

    "I'll share this love I find with everyone"

    my two fav lines in the song...
    when i listen to this song this is what i get out of it..life isn't about all the negatives really. look at the bright side of things and enjoy yourself..live for the moment. not everything is what it seems to be..when things go wrong there's always something good that comes along the way..and we should all just have fun and i hope that this feeling that i get or the "love" that i have for everyone doesn't go away..b/c im nineteen years old and somtimes i think and wonder how i'm going to be when i get older.and i don't want to change my kind heart..b/c i know that when i get older the pressure of money or of getting a job.. generally everything is going to built pressure on me but at the same time my kind heart won't fade..but i will never let the feeling go away.... like a part of yourself won't change
    i know many ppl can relate to what im saying haha hopefully..
    but yeah i love this song !!

    Song MeaningThis song is about being a child, and then transitioning to an adult, everything carefree and happy and anything is possible, then the last lines "Please don't go away," is wanting to hang onto that as you watch it fade away "Is this how it's supposed to be?" Wondering if this is the way life really is where everything's so simple and boring and nothing is magical anymore.

    General Commentsupernothings,

    I kinda agree with you that even though this song is an improvement on whos's to say he should of made a new one. The thing is though that this album was rushed and it is not exactly going to be the nect BF is is it. i'm just glad to get some new material but i am getting a bit worried at the fact that his music is not what it was. I hope his next album when he releases it in a few years compares to OaO or brushfire.
