Lyrics

Some Nights

Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights I call it a draw
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Most nights I don't know anymore...
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

This is it, boys, this is war - what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype
Save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked,
But here they come again to jack my style

That's alright (that's alright)
I found a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I? Mmm... Mmm...

Well, some nights I wish that this all would end
'Cause I could use some friends for a change.
And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights I always win, I always win...

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Most nights I don't know... (oh, come on)

So this is it. I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

(Come on)

No. When I see stars, when I see, when I see stars, that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like this one, so come on.
Oh, come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on!

Well, that is it guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands
This one is not for the folks at home;
Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she call "love"
When I look into my nephew's eyes...
Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...
Some terrible nights... ah...

Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

The other night you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up but we'd both agree

It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance...
Oh... It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance... Oh...

Oh, I loved this! I love how you give equal weight and sympathy to all the characters and their (sometimes bad, sometimes good) choices and their relationships with each other (including the more unusual combinations). And it's a gorgeous song -- one I hadn't heard before, either -- that's fit perfectly to the clips. This one will be a rewatch for sure. \o/

(here from Sholio's rec!) YAY, much fun! (er pardon the pun...) Never would've associated a song so upbeat-sounding with POI's grim look, but it works really well here (and really it's kind of perfect, because the song is darker than it sounds, but then POI is brighter than it appears, so, they meet perfectly in the middle!)

And the clips to song was well done, you got the rhythm, and the teaminess, and just, yay!

Hey, wow, this is just a perfect ensemble vid. I love the tone of hope throughout it despite how terrible their lives are. The blend of voices in the song really supports the theme of working together. Also, thanks for the many download choices. I took the 720p version.

Fabulous Team Machine Vid! :-D

"What do I stand for?" is such a great summary for all of the characters, each of them has to ask themselves that sooner or later, it changes and grows throughout the show -- which is one of my favourite things about it -- and I love the scenes you chose for those lyrics.
