A song about self-confidence. The utter knowledge that anyone can make a difference – with high self-esteem and confidence the difference ain't always right but it is always bigger.
You get to the stage where you have simply had enough. That this might not always meet with approval from others is irrelevant. When you have had it up to here then you don't give a shit.
Sometimes everything is cool, sometimes all is not well but what the hell, enjoy it while you can. As John Lennon once said ‘ life is what happens while you're busy making other plans'
She lived in the same block of flats, he knew there was a problem from the way he saw them behaving towards each other – but nothing was ever said. Until one day she was gone.
Pompous, smug and infinitely pleased with itself. An odious creature to most of us but sometimes it is all just a pitiful pretence. Sometimes pretending you are more than you are is the only way you can survive.
The weekend started badly until the infectious enthusiasm of youth dragged me kicking and screaming into the world of the living. It said ‘stop feeling sorry for yourself and get on with it.'
We have done this for years, it's in our blood. We still do it and shall continue to do so for years to come. Despite everything, we try to convince ourselves we have finally made it. Maybe one day we will.
This world of ours we have well and truly fucked up, or at the very least it is work in progress. I don't know or claim to know what the answer is – but global warming will end in tears if we don't find one.
Pure, simple admiration. He has everything he want's, he is all things to all people, he is the ultimate role model. Is it real or just good branding ? Is he deluded... or is he just a lucky bastard?
Adopt a positive attitude and it feels like it's getting better, somehow it gets even better if everyone adopts a positive attitude. It's not gonna work for everyone but it might be worth a try, life is too short to wallow.
Some relationships feel like a war zone, it can be hard to know whether you try to hold on and work it out. Sometimes we succeed but more often than not it's only a matter of time before we have to let it go.
A song about self-doubt. The little voice speaking to you – a critical, negative voice saying ‘you can't' 'don't try' and ‘loser'. It comes any time of the day or night and it kills any spark of inspiration or motivation you may have.
