"Are You Sad?" as written by and Michael Maida....
Your life has seemed so hard
It's been dried up
Angels that can't keep guard
I'm trying to reach your hand
But I'm on fire
I never planned to fade away
Stay with me

Stop pretending
When they say that your nothing
Are you sad, are you holding yourself
You shouldn't be
Are you sad, are you locked in your room
You shouldn't be
I'm drowning inside your head
Help me to answer

Help understand
But its been so long
Since we talked like friends
Please forgive me
I'm just a man
Whose made
Mistakes.

    General CommentAll of OLP's songs have positives meanings...basically it is saying don't be sad, it sounds like a downer type song, but then it comes back with saying "you shouldn't be"...Raine Maida said it's just for positive meaning...he told me that when i met him

    General CommentYou can hear the sadness and sympathy in Raine's voice for the person he is singing to/about, but this song never lifts my spirits. Even though he says someone shouldn't be sad, that doesn't mean they won't be.

    General Commentthis song means so much to me. when i first started listening to our lady peace i wasnt too happy with myself or my life or anything and at times i was really depressed and yes of course im gonna say that this song helped me get through that but it really really did. id would lock myself inmy room and lay in my bed and cry and play this song on repeat all night. "are you sad?" yes, "are you holding yourself"- yes "you shouldn't be"
    "stop pretending when they say your nothing" - thats what really helped me that one line. the song just gives me the feeling that someone does care and that they r helping me if not so noticable but they are. well yeah this may sound cheesey but i swear to my life its true.

    General Commenti got this cd a lil while after i went thru a deep depression. the first time i heard 'life' it made me cry, but the first time i heard this song it made me remember all the pain i went thru. i was locking myself in my room, and keeping to myself, i couldn't beileve how much i could relate to this song. i love it and hate it at the same time, and it sums up everything i was feeling in a few lines. thank you olp.
