Music Monday — The Dresden Dolls “Good Day”

01 Oct

I’m so excited for the release of Amanda Palmer’s new cd.  I know this isn’t just her, but I had to highlight one of my favorite songs involving her.  This song is such a story of heartbreak.  You ever have those moments when it seems like your friend/spouse/lover/children/guy at the store just isn’t listening to you or cares to listen to you?  Plus the music just rocks.

Lyrics (my favorite lines in bold):

 So you don’t want to hear about my good song?
And you don’t want to hear about how i am getting on
With all the things that i can get done
The sun is in the sky & i am by my lonesome
So you don’t want to hear about my good day?
You have better things to do than to hear me say

God its been a lovely day! everything’s been going my way
I took out the trash today and i’m on fire…

So you don’t want to hear about my good friends?
You don’t have the guts to take the truth or consequence
Success is in the eye of the beholder
And its looking even better over your cold shoulder

I’m not suggesting you get to line me up for questioning
But Jesus think about the bridges you are burning
And i’m betting
That even though you knew it from the start
You’d rather be a bitch than be an ordinary broken heart

So go ahead and talk about your bad day…
I want all the details of the pain and misery
That you are inflicting on the others
I consider them my sisters and I want their numbers

God its been a lovely day! everything’s been going my way
I took up croquet today and i’m on fire

I picked up the pieces of my broken ego
I have finally made my peace as far as you and me go
But i’d love to have you up to see the place
& i’d like to do more than survive i’d like to rub it in your face…..

Hey! its been a lovely day! everything’s been going my way
I had so much fun today and i’m on fire
God it’s been a lovely day everything’s been going my way
Ever since you went away hey i’m on fire…..
I’m on fire…
I’m on fire…
So you don’t want to hear about my good day?
