Some Nights - FUN.


The Experience: Caught between the ups and downs of every day, it's easy to lose sight of who we are: I'm still not sure what I stand for. Some nights, I own the world. Other nights, daybreak couldn't come soon enough. Some nights, we sell short of what we’re really worth; yet the drive to fill our lives still haunts us: So this is it? I sold my soul for this?


My Take: We're in luck: somehow good things can even come out of our bad choices: you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from some terrible nights. Somehow, we get another chance; it's time to stand for something worthwhile, and to find out who I really am.

LYRICS:

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck; some nights,
I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know anymore...

This is it, boys, this is war - what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype - save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked,
but here they come again to jack my style

And that's alright; I found a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I? Oh, who am I?

Some nights, I wish that this all would end
Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know...

So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

No. When I see stars, when I see stars, that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like a swan, so come on
Oh, come on. Oh, come on.

That is it, guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands
This is not one for the folks back home; I'm sorry to leave, mom,
I had to go
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she called "love"
But when I look into my nephew's eyes...
Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...
Some terrible nights.

The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream
I just had about you and me
I called you up, but we'd both agree
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance...
