Music makes me want to die
Though no one loves it more than I
I can't seem to figure out
How to make money?

I'm so sick of being broke
Using shampoo instead of soap
Because I can't afford to buy them both

Music makes me want to die
No matter all the songs I write
The money never seems to come
I'm slowly dying

The years they seem to disappear
I'm playing music no one hears
Should I give this motherfucker up?
I'm sick of trying

I think I'll write just one more song
I think I'll write just one more song
I hope you sing along

    My Interpretationthis is that moment that every artist, who wants to make their art their career, hits. where they step back and look at all of the pain that fighting for their dream has given them and wonders if it's all worth it. you know you'll never give up on this but you seriously start to wonder if you should. the end of it is that him understanding that wondering isn't getting him anywhere so he might as well just keep pushing. he'll make it one day.
