Sometimes a song says it all.


 

Matchbox Twenty – Unwell (Video)

From the archives:  I posted this a while ago, and it has taken on yet another meaning. 

This song came out at a time when I felt very much like the lyrics suggest. I would hear it and at once feel like I understood the artist, and then immediately want to cry. Crying was good then, and so I turned to this tune on more than one occasion to pull me out, down, or up. It may be trite, but it worked.

 

UNWELL 

MATCHBOX TWENTY 

All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on
Feeling like I’m headed for a breakdown
And I don’t know why

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell
I know right now you can’t tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see
A different side of me
I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired
I know right now you don’t care
But soon enough you’re gonna think of me
And how I used to be…me

I’m talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they’ve all been talking about me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I’ve lost my mind

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell
I know right now you can’t tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see
A different side of me
I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired
I know right now you don’t care
But soon enough you’re gonna think of me
And how I used to be

I’ve been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they’ll come to get me
Yeah, they’re taking me away

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell
I know right now you can’t tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see
A different side of me
I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired
I know right now you don’t care
But soon enough you’re gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Yeah, how I used to be
How I used to be
Well, I’m just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be
I’m just a little unwell

  1. The song says it all! Everybody feels this way sometime or the other. When we feel so lonely and depressed, it’s so easy to advice to get over it. But sure the cloud will pass away, but we have to go through it. we can’t avoid it. may be meditation and diversion will help… but first thing is to become aware of it and not letting it take over. stop it from spreading like wild fire.. depressed mind sucks! when there’s light, there’s also shadow and when there’s joy, there’s also sorrow. after all.. this is earth and not Heaven! The key word here is… ACCEPT… accept the situation, without resistance.. without expectation… as it is! then things become easy. ( I sometimes have to go through this everyday!) This is Life!(sigh)!
