"Fair" as written by and Adam Tyler Baker....
I know there's no hope in holding up this weight
It just won't float
Man, I tried, but the tide
It knows no sides
If that's what's not fair, then what could be wrong with my life?
If that's what's not fair, then what could be wrong with my life?

Maybe she needs love
To put the bottle down
Maybe she needs me
To be around

The pain in her stare is drawing me shapes
Oh, so fair
The pain in her stare is making me wish I was there
With something to declare

We'll it's quite possible I won't make it out
Alive
Because I'm quite sure that I could die
Because what's best is what's left when nothing is left but the sound of
The rain on your head, a woman asleep in your bed
Dreaming in my bed

Something's got to happen
Now

    General Commentthe correct lyrics are below:

    I know there's no hope in holding up this weight.
    It just won't float.
    Man, I tried, but the tide.
    It knows no sides.
    If that's what's not fair, then what could be wrong with my life?
    [If that's what's not fair, then what could be wrong with my life?]

    Maybe she needs love
    to put the bottle down.
    Maybe she needs me
    to be around.

    The pain in her stare is drawing me shapes
    oh, so fair.
    The pain in her stare is making me wish I was there
    with something to declare.

    We'll it's quite possible I won't make it out
    alive.
    Because I'm quite sure that I could die.
    Because what's best is what's left when nothing is left but the sound of
    the rain on your head, a woman asleep in your bed.
    Dreaming in my bed.

    Something's got to happen.
    Now.

    General CommentI kinda feel that thing song is about a girl with some problems, mainly drinking, and this guy feels that she would get better if he loved her.. but he doesn't.

    This song is amazing.

    that whole stanza. mmm. basically i take it to mean that this person is done trying to be strong because life just won't have it that way. fate doesn't take sides, and if that isn't fair.. then his life is more than just unfair. god i love that last line.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that at the end, some of them are yelling no, and some now. I love it.
