"Nightlife" as written by and Jordi/mesquida Young Maranges Villas....
I left it to chance; I never should’ve let this get so far out of hand.
But I’ll do anything to not be alone ’cause when I’m alone you know I’ll…
I can easily fall back into old habits that I thought I’d left behind
And they rip me apart and I realize…

Don’t be alarmed, I have to lie
Take everything and keep it inside.
I know I’m sick and I’m not right. I’m so fucking tired of living this life,
I made for myself, I’m sorry that I cannot get past what keeps me away from the light.
I hope this explains my problem to you, because I feel like this every night.

Don’t wanna be like this, anxious and angry or hopeless and upset- all the time.
Unable to get back the feeling I lost somewhere along the line.
I wear it all on my sleeve and everyone sees no matter how hard I try.
I’ve never felt worse in my whole life.

Don’t be alarmed, I have to lie
Take everything and keep it in stride.
I know I’m sick and I’m not right. I’m so fucking tired of living this life,
I made for myself, I’m sorry that I cannot get past what keeps me away from the light.
I hope this explains my problem to you, because I feel like this every night.
Feel like this every night.
(Night after night)

    My OpinionI'm currently going through a very painful divorce. I heard this song on XM and it pretty much the way I feel concerning what my life has become. just my two cents.

    General CommentThis song hits home fairly hard right now. :( Stay strong, anyone that stumbles across this. It gets better guys. Even if right now it DOES feel like this every night.

    My OpinionI woke up one morning, was smoking a cigarette, & this song came on Xm. Never having heard it before, & pretty much disliking everything tha first time. I hear it. I listened very intently, and before the song was over, tears were streaming down my face. Never have my thoughts, & feelings, & emotions ever been captured so eloquently. Im as of fri 8/4/17 199 days clean of opiates, after 10+ years. And im struggling with trying to find where, & if i still am able to fit into my bestfriend of 18 yrs, if i fit in that World, that also ,happens to be my Wife of 13 yrs. She quit a yr & a week before i did. She felt i wasnt going to ever stop, cuz i said i wouldnt. That along w other things pushd her to explore, other things. Shes changed, some good, some bad. As have i. This song reprepresents, the Anger, the Hatred, the LUV, the Bitterness, the Want, the Passion, the Need, the Lust, it Encompasses all those things, & so,much more. It represents the Ripped, Tattered, Exhausted, Confused, Depressed, Scared, Bloody Shell. Thats left! . After these 20yrs, of the FUKIN!!Best!, & FUKIN!! Worst! times, ever in my whole Life.
