"Nothing Good Is Real" as written by and John Davis....
Allow me to confess 'cause here's the way I am
Obsessive kind with a possessive mind I can only love my hand
If you should come close little sister you may find
The smoke unbearable that's the way I kill my time
Sometimes I feel nothing good is real
Sometimes I know nothing good is slow
When it turns to go

Forbid me to get weird the way I always do
'cause something disappears and I could end up killing you
You are so quiet shy and beautiful today

I wouldn't pass you up, if you could only come my way
Sometimes I feel

    General CommentThis is only one of the greatest songs ever. This guy wants a date a girl but he knows hes not mature enough to handle it and hes at a bad place in his life so hes encouraging her to stay away. He says hes obsessive, overly possessive, hes selfish, he smokes too much, he ruins relationships by suddenly turning very cold and not giving the other person any reason or any closure. BUT then after hes convinced her to stay away, he changes his mind and tries to convince her that he would love her if shed give him a chance. The reason he thinks nothing good is real is because hes screwed up in the head.
    This song is such an honest take on how bad at relationships so many people can be.

    General Commentawesome. effing. song.
    he doesn't believe anything good is truly real. And if it is, it never lasts, so was it even real anyway or just a dream? a break from reality? he doesn't trust or love anyone easily, and people always disappoint him(in other words, he always disappoints himself), but with this girl he hopes he is wrong. He prays. "Allow me to confess.."

    Nothing good is real. Because if it was it would last. It wouldn't disappear at the first sign of trouble.

    He breaks relationships by getting weird. he changes in a little way, barely noticable, like something in him just goes away, just for a second, and the good thing he had becomes sabotaged forever. And it falls apart *fast*.

    he's in love with this girl. but he knows how it'll end. but if she would only come to him. maybe he could learn to hope.

    isn't it scary how these songs describe our lives so well?
