People always tell me how happy I could be,
I'm never gonna find out.
A house in the burbs and a bitchin' SUV is how I'm never gonna wind up.
I didn't know Lennon or King or Kennedy,
but i know one thing, you gotta know yr enemies.
People always tell me how happy I could be,
I'm never gonna find out.
Better to suffer it than live under it.
I'm never gonna be just fine, no way.
I'm never gonna be that guy,
I'm never gonna be just fine,
but there are times i need you to remind me.
I'm never gonna be that guy.
I'm never gonna be just fine.
I never wann say that my best days are behind me.
I never want to be lukewarm again.
If being frightened means that I'll always be aware,
I'm always gonna be scared.
Everybody's got a way of working out the world,
like E is M and C squared
There's Budda and Hohammed and JC and all them,
and I'm ivri (Baruch ata HaShem).
Everybody's got a way of working out the world,
I'm never gonna find out.
Better to suffer it than to live under it.
I'm never gonna be just fine, no way.
I'm never gonna be that guy,
I'm never gonna be just fine,
but there are times I need you to remind me,
I'm never gonna be just fine.
I never wanna say my best days are behind me.
I never wanna be lukewarm again
there is a summer, its all the time, for every one of us.

    General CommentI really don't know why nobody reviews this great song: My favourite part is (of course;)) "I never wanna say my best days are behind me." This shows the "positive thinking" of Jonah and his band which unfortunately doesn't exist any more:(

    General CommentThis band is really under rated, this is one of my favorite songs.

    I think the song is about some guy that can't win everything or be like a celebrity. I may be wrong.

    General CommentThis is the most uplifting song I've heard in a while. In a strange way, it has the ability to make me feel alive. It's so beautiful.

    General Commentyep, I know Onelinedrawing but I think that the songs aren't as good (and of course powerful) as NEOs' interpretations...
