"Gotta Get Up From Here" as written by John O'brien, Ellie Lawson and Jeff Phillips....
Midnight here and I'm all alone again
Chain smoking and I'm in my bed
I just wanna disappear here inside of me
Ride out the hopelessness in my head

What you doing with your life you ask me
Baby you're not good enough for me
What's the matter with you, you keep asking
Can't you do better for me, better for me
Can't you do better for me better for me

Black hood up and I'm walking out the door
Head phones on and my beats up loud
Don't you wanna know how I'm truly feeling here
I don't think you do somehow
Who the hell do you think you are, you say
Don't you know that you've got no rights
While you're living under my roof you know
Dumb ba de doobe dad dumb dumb die die

There's a million reasons why I'm feeling down today
Still I wonder if I'll ever feel the same again
Seen a million situations should put me in my place
Guaranteed there's a million more yet to come up in my face

I've gotta change my ways
24 hour life crisis
Burning me up
Burning me inside
I've gotta find my way
24 hour life crisis
Burning me up burning me inside, I've

Gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here
Gotta get up
I've gotta get up from here

Today and I'm taking control again
Patch on my arm in the bright sunlight
There's no way that I'm gonna go under now
Plenty of ways to make a wrong right
No more negative thinking around me
I don't wanna live my life that way
There's too many good people to compensate
All the energy lost
All my energy

There's a million reasons why I'm feeling down today
Still I wonder if I'll ever feel the same again
Seen a million situations should put me in my place
Guaranteed there's a million more yet to blow up in my face

I've gotta change my ways
24 hour life crisis

Burning me up
Burning me inside
I've gotta find my way
24 hour life crisis
Burning me up burning me inside, I've

Gotta get up from here
Gotta get up from here
Gotta get up
I've gotta get up from here

    General Commenti cant believe nobody's has left a comment on this

    its pretty obvious that this song is about someone who is completely lost in their life and the people around them don't understand and its this person wanting to straighten up their life and get their act together.

    i love this song beyond words.
