"Not Today" as written by and Alana Skyring John Patterson....
If it's half as good out there, as it is in here
I might have to change, everything I am.

I'm breaking bread again, lying in bed again, we watch the TV all over the big screen.
I live a life so large, in this old tiny house, I've got all we need, I'm perfect company.

If it's half as good out there, as it is in here, I might have to change, everything I am.

But not today, no not today,
Fuck your today, not going away.

Tiny horse tiny cart, watching ducks heading south,
We're straying two by two, we're here to break the rules.
What you got, you can wear, what you want, it can wait,
Take what you need from me I'm perfect,

But not today, no not today,
Fuck your today, fuck going away.

No, no, no, not today.
If it's half as good out there, as it is in here.

    General CommentI think this is a song about not conforming to other people's standards and being comfortable with yourself and what you have.

    "
    If it's half as good out there, as it is in here
    I might have to change, everything I am."

    To me this reads like a monologue. If you think that everything "out there" external to you is better, you will feel the need to change yourself.

    "
    What you got, you can wear, what you want, it can wait,
    Take what you need from me I'm perfect,"

    To me this suggests that you should be happy with what you have. You don't need to go seeking acceptance from outside yourself, you have all the skills, talents and material possessions you need. You shouldn't have to change yourself.

    "
    But not today, no not today,
    Fuck your today, fuck going away."


    A rebellion agaist what other people expect of you. "Fuck YOUR today" means fuck your way of life, I have my own. I'm not changing.


    I like this song :) we all need a little authenticity in our lives.
