"I'm Not Feeling It Anymore" as written by and Van Morrison....
Have to get back, have to get back the base
I need to talk to somebody, I can trust
Too many cooks, are tryin' to spoil the broth
I can't feel it in my throat, that's all she wrote

I'm not feeling it no more, I'm not feeling it anymore
Not feelin' it no more, not feelin' it anymore

When I was high at the party, everything looked good
I was seein' through rose colored glasses
Not seein' the wood for the trees
I started out in normal operation
But I just ended up in doubt
All my drinking buddies, they locked me out

I'm not feelin' it no more, I'm not feelin' it anymore
No feelin' it no more, I'm tryin' to give you the score

You see me up there baby, I'm on the screen
But I know better now, it's so unreal
If this is success, then something's awful wrong
Cause I bought the dream and I had to play along

I'm not feelin' it no more, I'm not feelin' it anymore
I'm tryin' to give you the score, I'm not feelin' it no more

We all know that money, don't buy you love
You just get a job and somewhere to live
You have to look for happiness, within yourself
And don't go chasin' thinkin' that it is somewhere else

I'm not feelin' it no more, I'm not feelin' it anymore
Baby I'm tryin' to give you the score,
I'm not feelin' it no more

I was pretending all the time
I was givin' everybody what they wanted
And I lost my peace of mind
And all I ever wanted was simply just to be me
All you ever need is the truth
And the truth will set you free

I'm not feelin' it no more, I'm not feelin' it anymore
I'm tryin' to give you the score, just like I did before
I'm not feelin' it no more, I'm not feelin' it anymore
I'm not feelin' it no more, baby I'm just trying to give you the score
I'm not feelin' it no more, not feelin' it anymore
Not feelin' it no more
Not feelin' it no more baby.

    General CommentSelf-Knowledge. Verse one is about getting too far ahead of ourselves, coming to the conclusion that it's hard to trust in people who constantly betray us. At times, it's best to trust in no one but ourselves. Verse two I visualize someone who, despite the great time they're having in an empirical sense, still feel a sense of distance from others internally. Verse three deals with the idea of fame/popularity, and how it's all meaningless if you have to sell your soul to achieve it. Also, how you're drawn into playing a certain character that isn't you and how it wears you out. It's lonely at top, as they say. Verse four deals with the same issue, money doesn't guarentee us automatic happiness/love, and that many times, the best things in life are free, so to speak. It's the little things that matter(love, trust, truth, compassion, empathy,e tc.), life can be no another way other than that which it is - one day at a a time. Verse Five deals with how we'll never find happiness trying to appease/impress others. We can't be too happy without our own approval - it's impossible to love others unless we love ourselves first. The longest journey is inward; Self-Knowledge. The last lines in verse five is biblical in thought: "You show know the truth and the truth shall set you free" - Jesus
