Just A Thought
Gnarls Barkley Lyrics


All I want is your understanding,
As in the small act of affection
Why is this my life?
Is almost everybody's question

And I've tried,
Everything but suicide,
But it's crossed my mind

I prefer peace,
Wouldn't have to have one worldy possesion,
But essentially I'm an animal,
So just what do I do with all the aggresion?

Well I've tried,
Everything but suicide,
But it's crossed my mind

Life is a one way street and,
If you could paint it,
I'd draw myself going in the right direction,
So I go all the way,
Like I really, really know but the truth is,
I'm only guessing

And I've tried,
Everything but suicide,
Ooh but it's crossed my mind

Just a thought

It's even dark in the day time,
It's not just good, it's great depression
When I was lost I even found myself,
Looking in the gun's direction

And so I've tried
Everything but suicide
But yes, it's crossed my mind

But I'm fine

Lyrics :

[Verse 1]
All I want is your understanding
As in the small act of affection
"Why is this my life?"
Is almost everybody's question

[Chorus]
And I've tried
Everything but suicide
But it's crossed my mind

[Verse 2]
I prefer peace
Wouldn't have to have one worldly possession
But, essentially, I'm an animal
So, just what do I do with all the aggression?

[Chorus]
Well, I've tried
Everything but suicide
But it's crossed my mind

[Verse 3]
Life is a one-way street, and if you could paint it
I'd draw myself going in the right direction
So, I go all the way, like I really, really know
But the truth is, I'm only guessin'

[Chorus]
And I've tried
Everything but suicide
Oh, but it's crossed my mind
Just a thought

[Verse 4]
It's even dark in the daytime
It's not just good, it's Great Depression
When I was lost, I even found myself
Looking in the gun's direction

[Chorus]
And so, I've tried
Everything but suicide
But yes, it's crossed my mind
But I'm fine

The fact that most of Barkley's songs are like this, this deep and dark stuff, while mixing in some positive songs as well, just makes me undeniably happy.

this song is a Masterpiece

This song always hits me hard every time I hear it. I was borderline about to put a bullet in my head when I was about 17 but something about this song kept me from doing it. Well, that and a lot of other songs but this one in general helped a lot... but I still have a hard time listening to it because of that dark point in my life.
