"Upside Down" as written by and Jay Joyce....
Angels watching over me,
With smiles upon their face,
Cause' I have made it through this far,
In an unforgiving place.

It feels sometimes this hills to steep
For a girl like me to climb,
But I must knock those thoughts right down,
I'll do it in my own time.

I don't care,
I'm halfway there,
On a road that leads me straight to who knows where?

I'll tell you what,
What I have found,
That I'm no fool,
I'm just upside down.
Ain't got no cares,
I ain't got no rules,
I think I like living upside down.

Watching people scurry by,
Rushing to and fro,
Oh this world is such a crazy place,
It's all about the go go go.

Sometimes life can taste so sweet,
When you slow it down,
You start to see the world a little differently,
When you turn it upside down.

I don't care,
I'm halfway there,
And I'm just soaking up the magic in the air.

I'll tell you what,
What I have found,
That I'm no fool,
I'm just upside down.
Ain't got no cares,
I ain't got no rules,
I think I like living upside down.

I'll tell you what,
What I have found,
That I'm no fool,
I'm just upside down.
Ain't got no cares,
I ain't got no rules,
I think I like living upside down.

Woa, Woa, Woa
You got to slow it down,
And then you pick it up,
Come on and try a little topsy turvy back to front the right way round.

Take it slow, slow, slow (you gotta pick it up),
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah (let me see you slow it down),
Hey, yo, yo (tell me something something).

I'll tell you what,
What I have found,
That I'm no fool,
I'm just upside down.
Ain't got no cares,
I ain't got no rules,
I think I like living upside down.

I'll tell you what,
What I have found,
That I'm no fool,
I'm just upside down.
Ain't got no cares,
I ain't got no rules,
I think I like living upside down.

    My InterpretationThis song is sung from my soul :-)

    In my opinion, it's about a person whom is judged by something other then her true personality,(her looks,attitude,clothing,etc) and she resents herself for it in a certain extent, thinking perhaps there is something wrong with her, but in the end she finds that everything is all about perception. Therefore, if people don't understand her because of their different ways of being, or their critical judgements --- they won't have the time to comprehend her or even appreciate the free spirit that she is, despite how life treats everyone. So, it isn't that shes an idiot or a fool, she feels like a misfit because she is unique and doesn't follow the norm (fashion tends, politics,religion, etc) she does whatever makes her happy without regards to anyone else's opinion about it.



    Angels watching over me,
    With smiles upon their face,
    Cause' I have made it through this far,
    In an unforgiving place.

    A higher spiritual power is watching her face and conquer life's obstacles. Knowing how cruel the world can be, the spiritual aspect is guiding her with a smile knowing that she has good intentions, and knowing that life is not easy and it is difficult but the girl still tries her best to strive for happiness.




    It feels sometimes this hills to steep
    For a girl like me to climb,
    But i must knock those thoughts right down,
    I'll do it in my own time.

    Sometimes the things and situations that are presented to us in life, are a bit too much emotionally,mentally, and spiritually. But, staying optimistic the most you can, may be able to outweigh the positives from the negatives. Noone else is going to strive for your life.



    I don't care,
    I'm halfway there,
    On a road that leads me straight to who knows where?


    I stopped caring about minor things although admitting that I did once care, is saying that I had problems with my self and with my life, probably more then most people; but it doesn't matter because if I had gone through the things I've been through and I am still here, then I might as well make it all the way. Where does my destiny lead me to? I don't know, but I am staying on the ride until I am satisfied.


    I'll tell you what,
    What I have found,
    That i'm no fool,
    I'm just upside down.
    Ain't got no cares,
    I ain't got no rules,
    I think i like living upside down.

    I used to think something was the matter with my outlook in life, and that I was weird and did not belong, but I've discovered in myself that I am just someone who views things with different perspectives , and I hate being restricted in my thinking. No cares [in my opinion] I don't have children to watch or a husband to attend to, and I hope that this limitless freedom remains my outlook in life even if I were to have serious obligations. I don't follow rules subtly, meaning that if it isn't normal to wear sunglasses indoors, I'll wear them if I want too, if I want to go and date someone who is totally incompatible with me, I'm going to do it if I want too, although I fit expectations, sometimes I reject them to showcase my independent spirit.



    Watching people scurry by,
    Rushing to and fro,
    Oh this world is such a crazy place,
    It's all about the go go go.

    People don't stop to think or ask philosophical questions, that need reasoning for them . People have become integrated with modern technology in itself perhaps, or have only focused on the future, without regard to the here and now aspect of life, where still life is still not moving, and the sky is ignored because it is only a sky to some people. People are stressed out with work, education, and personal affairs, but don't remember to really enjoy that cup of coffee.


    Sometimes life can taste so sweet,
    When you slow it down,
    You start to see the world a little differently,
    When you turn it upside down.

    When you begin to appreciate life for the little things as well, things are more sweet, meaning enjoyable because this may add onto our hectic lives.
    When you have a perception and free spirit like mine, you enjoy these things in a timeless essence.
