I've gone for almost 1 1/2 years with this part of my thread and I never had a Goo Goo Dolls song on here. I am definitely slipping. Actually, Iris is one of my favorite songs of theirs.
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
I know it's the refrain but this part of the song sticks out to me. There are so many times I don't think people understand who I am (or even want to bother knowing who I am)... so I hide away and shy away from the world. I just figure if no one is willing to take the time to learn about me and who I am, why should I put myself out there for ridicule?
*shrugs* despite the feelings I get from the song, I still like it.
