 :wut: Really?

The lyrics is that someone takes pills to be cool... what happened with statements about being yourself and staying true to yourself? It doesn't fit with Jewel's messages,
It are such lousy lyrics, pretending drugs are cool...I thought nearly everybody would be dissapointed, am I the only one?

 :yuck:  :crying:  :help:  :fallen:  :thumbdown:

I don't think the lyrics are so bad. It sounds more like a celebrity telling people who say they wish they were famous that it's not all it's cracked up to be...I think that even resonates a bit with Jewel's recent EDA Inclusive about branding yourself, etc.

Quote
I took a pill in Ibiza
To show Avicii I was cool
And when I finally got sober, felt 10 years older
But fuck it, it was something to do
I'm living out in LA
I drive a sports car just to prove
I'm a real big baller 'cause I made a million dollars
And I spend it on girls and shoes

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I'm just a singer who already blew his shot
I get along with old timers
'Cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot
And I can't keep a girl, no
'Cause as soon as the sun comes up
I cut 'em all loose and work's my excuse
But the truth is I can't open up

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I took a plane to my home town
I brought my pride and my guitar
All my friends are all gone but there's manicured lawns
And the people still think I'm a star
I walked around downtown
I met some fans on Lafayette
They said tell us how to make it 'cause we're getting real impatient
So I looked em in the eye and said

You don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All that I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all that I know are sad songs, sad songs

Thanks for posting the lyrics, it might be a small language barrier, but I still don't like it, knowing this I'm just not able to enjoy this song, I still hope she won't sing it anymore.

I love the original! :)
The red light cannot change the mood of the blue guitar that's played
