Decipher those lyrics

More ramblings from the World of Rob. It's a very different world to Abi Land - not as manic - it doesn't involve throwing water at people or jumping up and down but it's still nice and the sky is made of Candy Floss. I'm not sure if anyway reads this anymore but as we're not up to much at the moment I'm going to put any old rubbish on here. So here goes....

I'm going through a Matchbox Twenty phase at the moment (for the gerries thats a band that you've never heard of, probably won't listen to and doesn't sound like the Beatles). Just found another fantastic track Entitled Back 2 Good love the song but I don't understand the lyrics. I've never been that good with lyrics. It probably stems from listening to way too much Duran Duran as a teenager. I think it has something to do with they guy being in a relationship but thinking about other people OR the fact he can't sleep around any more. I'm not sure, I don't think I'm the most perceptive person. Anyway, the lyrics are below and a video for those of you that are interested. if anyone can tell me what the hell this guy is singing about please let me know.

For those of you interested in Matchbox Twenty check out Bright Lights, Unwell, Cold, Disease. I' sure if you search YouTube you'll come across them. More music updates to come.

Its nothing, its so normal you
Just stand there I could say so much
But I dont go there cuz I dont want to
I was thinking if you were lonely
Maybe we could leave here and no one would know
At least not to the point that we would think so

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about
Somebody else
Its best if we all keep it under our heads
I couldnt tell, if anyone here was feeling
The way I do
But Im lonely now, and I dont know how
To get it back to good

I dont mean that, you own me
This aint no good, in fact its phony
As hell
But things worked out just like you wanted too
If you see me out you dont know me
Try to turn your head, try to give me some room
To figure out just what Im going to do

And everyone here, hates everyone here for
Doing just like
They do
Its best if we all keep this quite instead
And I couldnt tell, why everyone here was
Doing me like
They do
But Im sorry now, and I dont know how
To get it back to good

Everyone here, is wondering what its like to be with
Somebody else
Everyone heres to blame, everyone here
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain,
Everyone hides
Shades of shame, but looking inside were the same, were
The same
And were all grown now, but we dont know
How
To get it back to good

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking bout
Somebody else
Its best if we all keep this under our heads
I couldnt tell, if anyone here was feeling
The way I do
But its over now, and I dont know how, its over now
Theres no getting back to good

Oh ..... lyrics seem very sad!! Can't watch clip as bloomin mail marshall at work won't allow it!

I think basically he's been blown out big time by a bird that's messed with his head, who is now ignoring him. And he's still thnking about her even though it's over and wants to get back to where they used to be ... you know ... a bit sort 'Union of The Snake' ?! Lol

He wants her back ... she's pretending he doesn't exist!!! End of.

Love yours and Abi's ramblings ... keep it coming. I ALWAYS look at your blog for updates at least twice a day Bro :-D
