Not too sure that I can go much farther
Really not sure if things are even getting better
I'm so tired of the me that has to desecrate
I'm so tired of the me that's in control

I woke up to see the sun shining all around me
How could it shine down on me?
You'd think that it would notice I can't take any more
Had to ask myself
What's it really for?

Everything I tried to do, it didn't matter
Now I might be better off just rolling over
'Cause you know I tried so hard but couldn't change a thing
And it hurts so much I might as well let go

I can't really take the sun shining all around me
Why would it shine down on me?
You'd think that it would notice I no longer believe
Can't help telling myself
It don't mean a thing

Oh, oh

I woke up to see the sun shining all around me
How could it shine down on me?
Sun shining all its beauty
Why would it shine down on me?
You'd think that it would notice I can't take any more
Just had to ask myself
What's it really for?

    My InterpretationI love this song, and I'm not sure if my interpretation is exactly true because I haven't heard it with the show, so i don't know whats going on in the story when this plays. To me the singer sounds like she is singing about feeling unworthy and receiving either responsibility or affections that she doesnt feel like she deserves, or doesnt want to deserve (maybe it's too difficult to uphold, even if she is technically qualified). for me it hits home as far as love goes, but I think that refers even closer to a responsibility the singer has and has trouble feeling worthy of it.
