"Everybody Hurts" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Evan David Taubenfeld....
Don't know, don't know if I can do this on my own
Why do you have to leave, me
It seems, I'm losing something deep inside of me
Hold on, onto me

Now I see
Now I see

Everybody hurts some days
It's okay to be afraid
Everybody hurts
Everybody screams
Everybody feels this way
And it's okay
La di da di da
It's okay

It feels like nothing really matters anymore
When you're gone
I can't breathe
And I know you never meant to make me feel this way
This can't be happening

Now I see (now I see)
Now I see

Everybody hurts some days
It's okay to be afraid
Everybody hurts
Everybody screams
Everybody feels this way
And it's okay
La di da di da
It's okay
La la la la la

So many questions so much on my mind
So many answers I can't find
I wish I could turn back the time
I want to

Everybody hurts some days (some days)
Everybody hurts some days (some days)
Everybody hurts some days (some days)
Its okay to be afraid (afraid)

Everybody hurts
Everybody screams
Everybody feels this way
Its okay
La di da di da
It's okay
La la la la la
It's okay

Everybody hurts some days
Its okay to be afraid

Everybody hurts some days
Yeah we all feel pain
Everybody feels this way
It'll be okay
Can't somebody take me away to a better place
Everybody feels this way

La di da di da
It's okay
La la la la la
It's okay
La di da di da
It's okay
La la la la la
It's okay

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious what it's about.
    Everybody goes through hard times and it's okay to be upset with these hard times and it's okay to cry.
    Everybody hurts. :P

    General CommentWe all hurt sometimes, we all feel like crying and shouting, and that's ok to feel that way.

    Song MeaningI think the song is self explanatory.

    Everybody hurts. It's okay to just cry and scream on days when you're feeling alone. You're not alone int his world. Somewhere, someone is going through the same thing. It's not just you, so don't feel alone. It's okay to be afraid and just know that everybody hurts.
