about

Notes: In pandemicland, you might get into the habit of feeling low. When something good happens, you might not trust it. You might even turn away from the feeling. I've heard about studies that reveal most people prefer sad songs to some degree. They make us feel less isolated in our emotions, and they provide catharsis to help us transform ourselves. Something rang true for me when I heard about that. Even on a good day, I think I prefer sad songs. They help me to see the good more clearly.

lyrics

No one ever gets it their way
All the time

No one ever knows just what to say
And that's fine

God, I think I had a perfect day
I said with a sigh

Would you ever think it's too strange
For the fates to align?

You know I think my favorite songs
Are a little bit sad
And just a little too long
And when the chorus falls
You're where the ache belongs
And you feel
That no one always gets it all wrong

You know I've had my moments wound up
And what could I do?

You know I've had intentions mixed up
Ain't that the truth?

You know I think my favorite songs
Are a little bit sad
And just a little too long
And when the chorus falls
You're where the ache belongs
And you feel
That no one always gets it all wrong
