"Goldfish" as written by and Kate Walsh....
If I could leave this town I'd bold
Enjoying the lost and found and start all over
I crib the open road like birds in summer
A chance to break the mold is all that I'm after

Can you offer anything, doctor?
Help me start again
Moving forward without awkward moves
And I would be brave

And I could leave this goldfish sea
And I could start to believe in me
And after the sun the rain would fall
And I wouldn't mind at all

And if I could just escape this body
I know I wouldn't fake for just anybody
I claw my heart for you and keep it until I was okay
With what I do that's all that I'm after

Can you offer me anything, doctor?
Help me to start again
Moving forward without awkward moves
And I would be brave

And I could leave this goldfish sea
And I could start to believe in me
And after the sun the rain would fall
And I wouldn't mind at all
No, I wouldn't mind at all

    General CommentThis is about starting over. About facing the difficult truth in life & love. She sings with such vulnerability yet you can feel that she's gaining strength but not quite sure yet...Her optimism is there but she is at the same time unsure and so fragile. I love this song, it captures emotions when one goes through a difficult time, a broken heart, loosing a beloved or to anyone who seems a little lost...I'm one of those three.

    This song is me :)

    General Commenti can so relate to this song, i interpreted it as someone wanting to leave the town they were living in because it's narrow minded or because they feel cramped & squashed down. Like a big fish in a little goldfish bowl. And how it would be scary at times to leave this contained place to the big ocean but she'd just have to live with it e.g the line 'and i would be brave'. Thats just the idea i got (:
