"Sure About It" as written by and Zachary Walker/hanson Hanson....
Whoa
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
Whoa

Sittin' on the corner of nowhere road
Just between "I wish I could"
And "I don't know"
Rain is splashing up between
Her toes
She doesn't know her own area code
She's the picture
Of a heart of gold
On the edge of depression I note
And a picture
Of the wrong high road
Now it's too late for
A fight or foe

Now she's lookin' at me to know
The faucet's runnin'
And my car got towed

I'm sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I do surely doubt it
I wish that I could say
That I was sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
Whoa

Did you see the man
With the cocaine load?
It's on sale for the price of your soul
And a man with a long trench coat
Wish I could hide in a big black hole
Sell you all your pain 10-fold
And you're calling
Out a long, wrong road
Fitted for the box they mold
All you're missing is
A heart they stole
They're lookin' at me to know
My heart is pumpin'
And my feet got cold

I'm sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I do surely doubt it
I wish that I could say
That I was sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
Yeah
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not
Yeah
Sure
I'm sure that I'm not
Sure
You know, oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh huh

Sittin' on the corner of nowhere road
Just between "I wish I could"
And "I don't know"
There's a man with a long trench coat
Wish I could hide in a big black hole

They're lookin' at me to know
My heart is pumpin'
And my feet got cold

I'm sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I do surely doubt it
I wish that I could say
That I was sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
Yeah
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I do surely doubt it
I wish that I could say
That I was sure about it
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure about it
Yeah
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
That I'm not
Yeah
You know, oh yeah
I'm definitely sure
That I'm not sure
Oh yeah

    General CommentI love this song. It's about being conflicted about, from what I can tell, addiction. About wanting to be clean but not being able to or something...that's what I always got from it. She's trying to pull him back to it: "She doesn't know her own area code/She's the picture of a heart of gold/On the edge of depression unknown". She clearly has a problem, and then the guy with the trenchcoat and cocaine...I don't know, that's what I always got from it. It's about being conflicted, not knowing which way to go. But if not even they know, then perhaps I'm wrong.

    General Commentno comments? come on people, this song rocks! you don't know what you're doing or what's going on, yet everyone's looking at you like "well, will you decide for me?" plus the music is great. there's two basic parts of a song- the lyrics, and what helps the lyrics get stuck in your head for years at a time- the instruments, the beat, whatever you want to call it. i haven't heard this song in forever because my CD got lost when we moved, but i automatically remembered once i read the first few lines. i love this song, as i do most of their music. they're a great band.

    General CommentPersonally, I have no idea what the song means, and I've listened to it time and time again. When the question of what it meant came up in concert, I was hoping that the guys would answer it for me, but Tay was all "Really, we don't *know* what it means!" which just...confuses me...lol.

    General CommentI also couldn't tell...as far as I can tell it's some sort of confliction. I guess if Tay doesnt know then we wont either. Ah, well. Good song nontheless.

    General CommentActually, this song fits *precisely* how one feels when conflicted with anxiety and/or depression. There is no other song in the history of mankind that I'm aware of that could more accurately interpret the feelings behind these. More to the point, anxiety with a touch of depression. I have personally always felt that the writer of this has true first hand experience in this realm of psyche because no one BUT someone with this experience could describe the thought pattern more clearly. From the other commenters, if they said they don't know what it means, they are just maintaining their privacy as far as I'm concerned, which is their right, and also a very common response for someone with anxiety or depression to maintain their dignity. For those of you who have never experienced this and therefore cannot relate to the song, I sincerely hope you never can. <3
