"Very Nervous and Love" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
Tell me why you broke
Tell me 'cause I'm nervous and love
I've been thinking less
I've been thinking out loud, to prayers
Tell me where we are
Tell me 'cause we never get far

And I've tried my only hand
And I've tried to keep it simple
You just couldn't understand

I've been holding back
I've been holding pieces entrapped
I don't know what's wrong
I don't know my reasons
So long
Hope has left me here
Hope has left me wonderin'
And I feel

And I'm s'pposed to be so free
And the darkness pulls me over
Why did it have to be me?

I can't speak my mind
I can't even speak
I'm fine
Tell me why'd you go
Tell me 'cause I'm nervous
Take it slow

I don't see you wait
I don't see you coming
It's a dream

And it's falling off of it
Thought I'd never have to face it
Something hard is here instead

    My InterpretationHow come no comments yet?

    To me this is one of the most beautiful and sad songs ever. The notes it starts with, alone they make me cry.

    I understand this is about that moment in life in which you realize you don’t know how things got so bad, and you’re contemplating your lack of control and total responsibility for things falling apart. When you’ve been doing things for reasons you don’t even understand, when you realize your decisions are all wrong and nothing makes sense anymore, and that you’ve managed to alienate the ones who mattered the most to you. When you glimpse at the thought that you might have let the love of your life slip away.

    It may sound like a greek tragedy kind of thing, but I couldn’t even begin to say how real this is. It seems J Mascis has entered my head and my broken heart and written down every thought of the last few weeks. I can only assume letting life and love pass you by is something many people share, only some are desperately talented like J, and make such beautiful songs like this one.
