Well, maybe it will be a good choice to spill out your emotion, haha. I think this Simple Plan’s song was very popular when I was at primary school. At that time, whenever I listened to the western songs, I didn’t understand what the message was about. However, since I understand English, I love the western songs much. I will rate the songs first from the lyrics, I don’t know why, it was just like ‘Uh, the story within brings back to my memory’, like when you read a story or a novel or watch a film that reminds you of your personal experience.

Not all people focus on ‘something within the text’ right? Since music is universal, some people tend to pay attention to the music only, instead of the lyrics, as long as it’s enjoyable. But, when I post songs to my blog, it means, the lyrics of the songs say something deep, and reminds me of a memory in my life. How about you?

O well, Simple Plan’s songs are full of a sense of rebellion. Here it is.

“Welcome To My Life”

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place,
Like somehow you just don’t belong
And no one understands you?
Do you ever wanna run away?
Do you lock yourself in your room
With the radio on turned up so loud
That no one hears you’re screaming?
No, you don’t know what it’s like
When nothing feels all right
You don’t know what it’s like
To be like meTo be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you’re down
To feel like you’ve been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one’s there to save you
No, you don’t know what it’s like
Welcome to my life
Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more
Before your life is over?
Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you’re bleeding

No, you don’t know what it’s like
When nothing feels all right
You don’t know what it’s like
To be like me

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you’re down
To feel like you’ve been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one’s there to save you
No you don’t know what it’s like
Welcome to my life

No one ever lied straight to your face
And no one ever stabbed you in the back
You might think I’m happy but I’m not gonna be okay
Everybody always gave you what you wanted
You never had to work it was always there
You don’t know what it’s like, what it’s like

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you’re down
To feel like you’ve been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one’s there to save you
No, you don’t know what it’s like (What it’s like)

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you’re down
To feel like you’ve been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one’s there to save you
No, you don’t know what it’s like
Welcome to my life
Welcome to my life
Welcome to my life
