NIRVANA


Lithium Lyrics

I'm so happy 'cause today
I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, that's okay
'Cause so are you
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

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

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

I'm so happy 'cause today
I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay
'Cause so are you
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

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 was so happy when I met you at one of your gigs Kurt. I was so happy when I first heard you sing. I cried when I heard you died. I am so sorry that you didnt love preforming. I will never forget you

Kurt is actually describing hypomania. He knows he's been on both ends, but doesn't want to lose it 'I'm not gonna crack'. He is also a bit manic. Hypersexuality, excitement and listlessnes are signs.

It seems like a description of a bipolar patient's thoughts when they are not taking their medication.

Just like most of nirvana's song this song also has a cryptic message dat only kurt would b able to tell us.lots of people just try to decipher a message in a song and come out with the wrong meaning.

lithium was actually about a guy who found religion to help him cope with the death of his girlfriend, look up what Kurt himself said about it. many of their songs have no meaning, they rock though.

Dudes... Come on... If you read wikepidia properly it shows that he is talking about a super christian family that he lived with and he found god there but then eventually dropped that.

Cobain said the song is about a man who, after the death of his girlfriend, turns to religion 'as a last resort to keep himself alive. To keep him from suicid' - wikipedia

The song is about what u feel before & after u r prescribed n have taken Lithium. Although u don't find God or a higher power as I prefer to believe in because of the medication.
