lyrics

Songs

There are songs about living
Songs about death
Songs about places no one knows
Songs about being lucky
Songs about love
And a lot of songs about feeling kind of low

I didn’t hear them all
But I’m trying the best I can
It’s an addiction, or some kind of disease
But don’t bother looking
For a cure
Or any other medical expertise

Sometimes it’s all that matters
Sometimes it’s just a song
Some food for thought and a few chords to pick
It can change your life forever
For better or for worse
Although the one I’m singing now won’t do the trick

Lalalalala

There are songs about rainbows
And songs about the rain
Songs about a different point of view
They sing about women
They sing about men
And someone wrote a song about a boy named Sue

There are songs about politics
Songs about the war
And songs about the holy motherland
I didn’t get them all
And I tried the best I could
But some are so damned hard to understand

Sometimes it’s all that matters
Sometimes it’s just a song
Too much food for thought can make you sick
And some can get quite famous
And some can make you rich
The one I’m singing now might do the trick

Lalalalala

There are songs that sound so simple
And still they’re hard to play
That’s the mystery of music, I guess
Some songs last a lifetime
And others we forget
No one knows the secret to succes

Sometimes it’s all that matters
Sometimes it’s just a song
Some food for thought and a few chords to pick
And some can make you happy
And some can make you sad
Some are far too long and some end kind of quick

Lalalalala
