So this album is kind of old since it came out April 5, 2005 but I really like a couple songs from it and want to talk about them. I just want to start off by saying that I really enjoy his voice throughout the album, but there is one song in particular that I really love, which is “Something To Be”.
I really enjoy the beat, it sounds like a song I could definitely dance to (sadly to anyone watching), but the thing that sticks out to me the most is the lyrics. One of my favorites for example is,”hey man I don’t wanna hear about love no more, I don’t wanna talk about how I feel, I don’t really want to be me no more.” This is the first line of the song is one that sticks out to me greatly. As someone who reads a lot of books with romance in them, that makes these perfect little relationships it’s kind of hard to see the type of romance you expect to see after reading those books in real life. Sometimes I don’t always believe that kind of romance out there. I like this line because I relate to it, yes I love books with romance in it but sometimes I just get tired of talking about romance in real life. Then the next part saying “I don’t really want to be me no more” also ties back to what I just said, because real life is a lot less great than fantasy. If people had the option a lot of us would choose to be in another world, as another person right now.
Another line I love is, ” we’re all looking for something, something to be.” I feel like this whole song is about someone trying to decide who they are, and a lot of us can relate. Trying to decide what to do with your life is such a big decision that’s really hard to make. Just thinking about it makes me want to listen to this song and have a mini existential crisis. I know some people people who are all grown up with jobs, that still haven’t figured it all. It’s like one of those big questions that we all try really hard to figure out, but will never really know the answer. What are we meant to do with our life? Are we just supposed to live it to the best of our ability or is there
Here’s the link if you would like to check the song out (I highly recommend it).
