"Milwaukee" as written by and Stephen Kellogg....
Moonlight highway quicksand trying to pull us off the road
But you don’t succeed by giving up, that’s one thing I know
I’m sorry you got sick
and that I wasn’t there
If I acted like a dick
it didn’t mean I didn’t care

I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last 10 years
The way you treat your mother’s up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so angry
I guess I’ve learned that too

Jessica’s afraid she won’t find love
she says that she’s never home
Just last night I swear I heard her say “What if I die alone?”
And this broken-hearted attitude, you know it fits right in
To this movie about all of us that’s waiting to begin

I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last 10 years
The way you treat your lover’s up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so jealous
I guess I’ve learned that too

It will change in time
We’ll feel more alive
Protection’s like a wheel
And the way you sometimes feel
Can make you think that you might even be the worst person you’ll ever meet
But it’s alright…
We’ve got each other,
we’ve got each other,
we’ve got each other

I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last 10 years
And the way you treat each other’s up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so scared I guess I’ve learned that too

Why am I so angry?
Why am I so sad?
Why am I so contagious?
Why is it so good to feel bad?

    General CommentListening to this song today and these lines jumped out at me:

    "and the way you sometimes feel / Can make you think that you might even be the worst person you'll ever meet / But it's alright, cause we got each other"

    I'm unsure about the meaning of the song as a whole, but these words just really spoke to me today. I have definitely felt this way.. and it's true, knowing you have someone else (or a group of someones) can make it okay.
