Song lyrics
I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you
We broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared
Light my candles, in a daze
'Cause I've found god
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah

I'm so lonely, but that's okay, I shaved my head
And I'm not sad
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard
But I'm not sure
I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there
But I don't care
I'm so horny, but that's okay
My will is good
yeah yeah yeah (x6)

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you
We broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze
'Cause I've found god
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah
yeah, yeah yeah

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

After reading all posts ive come to realise hardly any of u have any idea of wat ur talkin about. I have the greatest respect for those that do but other then those select people your all raving on about fuck all. Sayin "Kurt is hot!!" has nothing wat so ever to do with the musical legend that was and still is Kurt Cobain. Listen and try to understand his lyrics. Maybe then u could all truly appreciate the meaning and the greatness that Kurt bought to every single one of his songs.

May he R.I.P

Hey, Holly84 up there has a point... but, dude, don't make everyone feel bad by pointing it out, okay?

Some of them might just have a crush on Kurt but you have to let them be.

Okay...enought of this crap.

I wanted to put my favorite lyrics...but then I would have to copy-paste the whole song and, for me, that's kind of DUMB.

This song is ironic... and I like it that way. It's also really monotonous and apathetic.

I it

reading all the posts i really dont get how so many of you who claim to be such huge kurt cobain fans dont get it at all. kurt had clinical depression, thats why he killed himself. just read his journals, read any book about him, and its blatently obvious. and to say 'kurt didnt kill himself because he didnt have any reason to' is just stupid. depression is an illness which affects the chemicals in your brain. it affects the way you think, it makes you feel as if you're losing your mind and i guess you have to experence it to really understand it, but depression is why he killed himself, and even though people outside might see all he had to live for, when you're depressed you cant see that yourself.

How can you not love it? And the "I'm not gonna crack"-part... Wonderful. I really like this song, although it took me ages ebfore I really heard it.

And, like many others have said before me, do you really care all that much about how he died? A great talent is dead, he'll never come back, isn't that bad enough? Instead of fighting over these kind of things we should all just be sharing the wonderful music he actually left behind. Fuck if he was left-handed or right-handed. Fuck if you think his wife is a bitch or nor. Fuck if he was hot or not. Fuck if it was him or someone else who ended his life. Just take one night, one goddamn night, light a candle or what the fuck ever and put Nirvana on and just remember him. I think that if there was heaven, he'd be smiling down on everyone of us who just loved his music.

instead of saying :" omg kurt kobain is so hot, i love nirvana they are rock gods and this song is awesome! " or " you guys are so stupid you don't get it at all".. can't you guys discuss the meaning of this song and have an actual conversation instead of: I LOVE NIRVANA ?
