A little paint, to cover what's deep inside
A little truth you know we all wanna hide
Well I'm tryin', I'm tryin' now to get to you
But you're tellin' me like you always do, you say

Don't hate me, 'cause I'm just that good

I've got to hand it to you now, you're a hard one to please
When it looks as though you've got all you need
All the many times I've dreamed I could walk in your shoes
What a nightmare it must be just bein' you say

Don't hate me, 'cause I'm just that good
A little misunderstood
Well, you made me, and I'm just that good

Step outside, walk with me
Everyone I know and see is fallin' is crawlin' after something maybe
A bigger house, faster car, never knowin' who they are
They're lonely, they're lonely, they're lonely

All we say, don't hate me, 'cause I'm just that good
A little misunderstood
Well, you made me, and I'm just that good
You wouldn't change me if you could

And all this time will take its toll on you
As the same it will on me
Well, good ain't all that good's made out to be
Don't hate me, we're all just that good
Just that good, just that good, just that good

    i think it's about all the people you always wanted to be and then you realise that their life isn't all that great, no matter what they tell you different.

    This song is so true. Its about people we might wish we were. But, if you sit back..you see that person actually doesn't have it all..they are dying inside cause they don't who they are in this world. They think if they have everything in the world they will happy, but it makes it worse. We have to be thankful everything we have...if not we will never be happy!

    This song was on the KB Toys soundtrack (where I worked), so I can't take it seriously.

    It's about people who are so arrogant and self-absorbed, who think they are it, but others can see right through it ("time will take its toll on you the same it will on me").

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
