Woke up today,
Won't be the same.
I'll cope with this flaw that's my life
And that's okay.
It's not depressing,
Just takes a little work.
I try a little harder,
Try a little harder than everyone else...
I don't want your pity.
I'm happy with what I am.
If you don't like how I act
Then you don't have to be around me.
If I could just grow up
Then everything would be just fine.
Why does my life suck?
Today I broke a mirror with some grace.
Seven years of bad luck don't seem so bad,
Just an extension of what I already had...
I don't want your pity.
I'm happy with what I am.
If you don't like how I act
Then you don't have to be around me.
If I could just grow up
Then everything would be just fine.
Why does my life suck?
I don't want your pity.
I'm happy with what I am.
If you don't like how I act
Then you don't have to be around me.
If I could just grow up
Then everything would be just fine.
Why does my life suck?

    this is probably the most meaningful song to me. like twotimepunk11 is right. this is exacty how i felt...it was like i was so depressed that i was like convinced that i was happy with how i was. it totally sucked, but like i felt almost as if i was enjoying it. thankfully now its over...but whenever i hear this song...i don't know...i just love this song. osker rocks.

    The other day I was mad..and thinking that life really sucks sometimes...so I searched for a song called life sucks..thinking no one would really have that as their title...but there it was, so I downloaded it on Kazaa, and I really like it.

    Because molecules get closer. They then stab you since they push against each other, creating large needles. Life doesn't suck, he was just an angry teenager with a gift for writing and music.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
