No You're Not Hard Core, Unless You Live Hard Core...

I am hard core because I was told last night by Lisa of "The Veronicas" in Kilby Court (741 S. Kilby Court (330 WEST), Salt Lake City, Utah - A.K.A the GHETTO- but awesome) She also said, "You guys are the only city that gets this song (Everything I'm Not, which lyrics i will include at the bottom) ..." which is also true, because she only speaks the truth- and also-because what other social culture is as silly (A.K.A. insane) as ours?

"Everything I'm Not"
Oh no
Don't go changing
That's what you told me from the start
Thought you where something different
That's when it all just fell apart
Like you're so perfect
And I can't measure up
Well I'm not perfect
Just all messed up

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now I see
I don't wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
Cause the girl that you want
She was tearing us apart
Cause she's everything
Everything I'm not

It's not like I need somebody
Telling me where I should go at night
Don't worry you'll find somebody
Someone to tell how to live their life
Cause your so perfect
And no one measures up
Yeah all by yourself
You're all messed up

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now I see
I don't wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
Cause the girl that you want
She was tearing us apart
Cause she's everything
Everything I'm not

Now wait a minute
Because of you
I never knew all the things that I had
Hey don't u get it
I'm not going anywhere with you tonight
Cause this is my life

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now I see
I don't wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
Cause the girl that you want
She was tearing us apart
Cause she's everything
Everything I'm not
But now I see
I don't wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
Cause the girl that you want-
She was tearing us apart
Cause she's everything
Everything I'm not

Now tell me, can not everyone relate? I know I can.

Um, I loved that with my entire soul. I came home after the concert and was telling Jacob and Chris about it, and Jacob was like, "Are your ears ringing? Because you're talking really loud." And then I was thinking about what someone would think if they hadn't gone to the concert but were sitting in the back seat of your car on the way home as we probably both yelled at each other w/out realizing it cuz our ears were still recovering from the extremely loud goodness that was The Veronicas concert. And I laughed.
Seriously, that was one AWESOME concert. The only thing that would have made it better is if that STUPID guy in front of us magically teleported to Siberia...or if he was narcoleptic and fell asleep on the floor so we didn't have to be forced watch him try to hit on that poor girl he was with.

This is going to make me sound ancient....but I haven't a clue who The Veronica's are...or I didn't until I heard you and Julie talking about them.

I liked the lyrics...and yes, I think everyone can relate to that. Glad you had fun.

(and yes, silly girl, I get your metaphors...except when I have been up all night)
