Seems I got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I got to leave before I start to scream
'Cause someone locked the door and took the key

You feelin' alright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
Yes, you feelin' alright?
I'm not feelin' that good myself

Boy you sure took me for one big ride
And even now I sit and I wonder why
That when I think of you I start myself to cry out
I just can't waste my time, I must keep dry
Gotta stop believin' in all your lies
'Cause there's too much to do before I die, hey

You feelin' alright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
You feelin' alright?
I'm not feelin' too good, little girl

Don't get too lost in all I say
Yeah by the time I really felt that way
But that was then, and now you know it's today
I can't get off, I guess I'm here to stay
'Til someone comes along and takes my place, yeah
With a different name, oh, and a different face

You feelin' alright?
I'm not feelin' that good myself
You feelin' alright?
Hey, not feeling that good myself
Woah, not feelin' alright
Yeah, not feelin' that good myself
Oh, woah, I'm not, well I'm not feelin' good myself
You can turn away, feelin' alright I'm not feeling too good myself

    My Interpretationit´s clearly about a breakup. Another relationship gone wrong. The words describe desperation and a feeling of being a prisioner in a relationship.
    but suddenly the desperation turns arround; why???
    Well, 2 aspects:
    1) The positive:
    "don´t get to lost in all I say
    Yeah by the time I really felt that way
    But that was then, and now you know it's today
    These 3 verses makes us believe that Love is a work in progress thing, an ever evolving and changing "thing"
    You can be desperate but if there is a drop of love and there is committment to work things arround it is possible to build up almost any relationship.

    2) The dark side
    I can't get off, I guess I'm here to stay
    'Til someone comes along and takes my place, yeah
    With a different name, oh, and a different face
    This is the Complacency side of Love.
    I stay because I can´t get off... I guess I´m here to stay.
