"Wouldn't Be So Bad" as written by Gillian Howard Welch and David Todd Rawlings....
Take me back to Anona street
Fill my glass again
With a bittersweet
Cause I don't wanna see
The life I have
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

Same mistake that I made before
I'll be waking up
On the kinlin' floor
While the bells are ringing
So low and sad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

Same mistake that I made before
I'll be waking up
On the kinlin' floor
I remember how
I made you mad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

I Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad
Thought the next time around
Wouldn't be so bad

    General CommentI thought I might leave a comment about this song because it’s an amazing song and one I can relate to.

    Take me back to Anona Street
    - She/ he maybe has a mate in Anona Street and there close so she/ he tells what’s happening.
    Fill my glass again
    With a bittersweet
    - She/ he really upset about what’s going and she/he doesn’t really care what is in the glass as long as its alcohol, wants the glass toped up.
    Cause I don't wanna see
    The life I have
    - What ever is happening must be bad for her/ him to say that.
    Thought the next time around
    Wouldn't be so bad
    - I get the idea of maybe his/her partner is fighting, snapping at each other, maybe the partner is abusive or maybe there one of their family/ mum/ dads is abusive (just saying, could be an other meaning).
    Same mistake that I made before
    I'll be waking up
    On the kinlin' floor
    While the bells are ringing
    So low and sad
    - She/ he has done this before, maybe in an other relationship and they had to end it because it was getting out of hand and they couldn’t handle it anymore and its just an repeat of what happened and he/ she cant believe what happening. Maybe she/ he told the partner happened last time round but has completely forgot. She/ he goes to a church to seek peace and time to think about what’s going on and really doesn’t know what to do because they love the person and doesn’t want the same happening like the last time but it looks like they’ll need to.
    I remember how
    I made you made mad
    - She/ he keeps doing what is making other person mad but doesn’t know how to stop what’s making them mad at them, and by the sounds of it they keep saying sorry but it hard to stop what there doing. Maybe there a heck of an lot going on with them but doesn’t want to tell the partner because she/ he doesn’t want them getting uberly worried about it.
    I Thought the next time around
    Wouldn't be so bad
    - They keep repeating this because they mean it and its hope that it will get better.

    I don’t know what everyone else thinks but that’s what I see and I would like to hear everyone thoughts on this ☺
