Stupid Things

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song during a severe self-pity episode in early 1999. I was just in a rotten mood over my love life. Actually, my lack thereof, but never mind. But I realized that part of my problem in not getting anyone was not looking in the first place.

A song about the inherent contradiction in bitching about having no love life and then not going out.

I wanna fall in love but love won't come to me
So I sit here late at night and I wait in vain
They tell me I've just got to get out a little bit more
But all I'm able to do is just sit here and wonder

Why do I do stupid things?
Why do I think stupid things?
Why do I say stupid things?
Why does everything I do feel like stupid things?

Call me a hopeless romantic or call me delusional
I've always fallen for that one true love shit
So I sit alone at night and wait for my one to come
I'm starting to think that this ain't working, I wonder


Stupid things...
