Someday by The Strokes

Oh, Maya says I'm lacking in depth
I will do my best
You say you wanna stay by my side
Darlin', your head's not right
See, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I'll be alright
I'm working so I won't have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes

I constantly find myself wondering why people actually want to be near me.  I don't know anyone named Maya.. but the rest of this verse is basically correct.

The lyrics are kind of upsetting (at least, to me), but the song's really upbeat, so when I first listened to it, I really had no clue what it was all about.  I had to pay a lot of attention to the lyrics to even realize what the song was.. which reminds me of myself, in an abstract way.

 

 

The End
