"Never Understand" as written by William Adam Reid and Billy Reid....
sung by Jim
The sun comes up another day begins
And I don't even worry about the state I'm in
Head so heavy and I'm looking thin
But when the sun goes down I want to start again

You never understandin'
You never understand me
Yeah

Don't turn around until you look at me
Why don't you take a second and tell me what you see
Things I see you only disagree
You never understand that's what I want to be

You never understandin'
You never understand me
Yeah

Not wishing to hide but you just can't see me
I tell you the truth but you don't believe me
Thinking of love but I can't hear what you're saying
Tomorrow I'm leaving
'Cause I'm not understanding you

    I hate to say this cliché, but it seems to be about drugs or some other kind of self-abusive behavior.

    General CommentThis amazing song is a paean to the delicious pleasures of an excessive lifestyle. And how, inevitably, some people in your life won't get the appeal.

    And for some reason, this is about the only one of their big hits that the brothers Reid never seem to play live anymore.

    General CommentI cannot begin to tell you the number of times I felt the need to play this song at insane volume levels for someone.
    I doubt it's a song about a boy and his issues with his parent(s): but, it could be.

    General CommentI think the title is pretty obvious about what it's about.
