about

You ever find yourself or your friends griping about things that seem downright silly in light of the fates of others? Me, too. This optimistic number touches on the value of a perspective shift when considering just what real trouble looks like. The last verse came to me after pondering what might be the saddest thing to see outside your neighbor’s front door. It’s sad and uplifting at the same time, the fact that loads of people have it worse than we do. -- MJ

lyrics

He forgets birthdays, his feet stink
Leaves lights on, and hair in the sink
She won’t slip CDs back in the case
Man it’s ruining your day

Down the street, real trouble at home
There’s a doctor on the phone
They found a lump, and there’s no doubt
You and me got nothing to cry about

The way folks drive, is driving you mad
Worst traffic, the town’s ever had
Your birthday party went on too late
Too much icing on your cake

One floor up she’s asking for divorce,
Here come his show of force
The knife goes in, the life flows out
You and me got nothing to cry about

Save your tears for something worth crying for
Save your heartbreak, for something worth getting heartbroken for

I said I love you and I meant what I said
I’m so thankful that we ain’t dead
These last few years it seems like we’ve been cursed
But couldn’t things be so much worse?

Across the street, their kid is off to war
Two soldiers march up to their door
Two people scream, two people shout
You and me got nothing to cry about 2X
