"If I Ever Feel Better" as written by and Christian Mazzalai Laurent Mazzalai....
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive
It's like a bad day that never ends
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There are things in my life that I can't control

They say love ain't nothing but a sore
I don't even know what love is
Too many tears have had to fall
Don't you know I'm so tired of it all
I have known terror dizzy spells
Finding out the secrets words won't tell
Whatever it is it can't be named
There's a part of my world that' s fading away

You know I don't want to be clever
To be brilliant or superior
True like ice, true like fire
Now I know that a breeze can blow me away
Now I know there's much more dignity
In defeat than in the brightest victory
I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

Hang on to the good days
I can lean on my friends
They help me going through hard times
But I'm feeding the enemy
I'm in league with the foe
Blame me for what's happening
I can't try, I can't try, I can't try

No one knows the hard times I went through
If happiness came I miss the call
The stormy days ain't over
I've tried and lost know I think that I pay the cost
Now I've watched all my castles fall
They were made of dust, after all
Someday all this mess will make me laugh
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know
If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

It's like somebody took my place
I ain't even playing my own game
The rules have changed well I didn't know
There are things in my life I can't control
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There's a part of my life that will go away

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I'll come through I don't know how
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive

I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

    General CommentI think it's just about being so depressed that you start ignoring you're friends, or potential friends. They start to think you either don't like them or are a total jerk. But it's just because you're hurting right now, and there's just too much crap in life at this moment to create or tend to a friendship. Yes, selfish, but it's what you feel sometimes.

    And it's like you're asking them to wait for you. Please, in a couple days, this mood will pass and I'll totally be up for pizza at your place. :)

    These lines - Especially the way the singer in this band makes them sound just won't leave my mind. Iv'e listened to this song a great many times, never gets old!

    General CommentI think this song is about panic attacks, depression, and anxiety...

    "I feel the chaos around me" -typical way of explaining panic attacks
    "I'd better learn to accept that, There are things in my life that I can't control" - typical way psychologists say to deal with anxiety and panic attacks, tell patiants there are things that are uncontrollable

    "I have known terror dizzy spells, Finding out the secrets words won't tell, Whatever it is it can't be named"- terror dizzy spells = panic attacks, but it is difficult to explain to someone who doesn't understand

    "Now I know that a breeze can blow me away" - can be triggered by anything


    "Hang on to the good days, I can lean on my friends, They help me going through hard times" - there are days when you feel great and days when you feel horrible but you work through it with the people you love

    "No one knows the hard times I went through, If happiness came I miss the call" - hopeless

    "It's like somebody took my place, I ain't even playing my own game" - hes disassociating, like being in a room of people but feeling seperate from them...

    And then they're saying "love is nothing but a sore"...to his recovery so he can't start a new relationship..."if i ever feel better remind me to spend some good time with you"


    my 2 cents

    General CommentI think it's a song about trying/thinking about trying to be in a relationship as a person suffering from depression. he's saying he wants to spend time with her once (if) he feels better, because it's so hard to be with someone else when you're wrapped up in yourself and just depressed as fuck. I don't think it's a heartbreak song about an ex at all - why would he want to spend some good time with someone/not have their number if they just broke up/had a long, serious relationship? it seems a more light-hearted attachment than that, outside of the depression aspect. fucking great song, anyway. I just wanna have a dance party to it

    General Comment'if i ever feel better, remind me to spend some good time with you"

    haha! just how i felt like before.

    for me, it's like there's this person you would like to get to know, but the time is just not right.

    =)

    Memory2011 has been nutz... Break up from a 7 year relationship... Break up from the 4 month rebound... and now onto the next...
    BUt i honestly feel like i have nothing left to give... I just feel so damaged from it all...
    Loving loving this song, just that feeling of "Let me be, cause i need to heal, and then i would love to work on something new with you..."
