Music Monday: How You Remind Me by Nickelback

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

I know these days is uncool to like Nickelback, they seem to attract a lot of hate for some reason. I’m not saying I love them, but they are definitely played a huge part of me becoming a rocker back in my high school days. How You Remind Me was one of their first really big hits that put them on the map and I remember singing it as loud as I could, although I had no idea about the lyrics. I had to learn German, so English came later in my life. But that didn’t stop me from trying and I sat down with a dictionary trying to make sense of the words, even though I had no idea about English grammar or tenses or anything like that. Let me tell you it was a disaster.

Then they released songs like Too Bad, Rockstar, Photograph, Hero, Someday and a bunch of others. They pretty much were witnesses to my teenage years. And although I hardly listen to them anymore, I always think of them with nostalgia. Besides, their early albums are pretty badass. And I still LOVE How You Remind Me. Sue me.

Lyrics

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn’t cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I’m sick of sight without a sense of feeling

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It’s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I’m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I’ve been wrong, I’ve been down,
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream “are we having fun yet?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no

It’s not like you didn’t know that
I said I love you and I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

And this is how, you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how, you remind me
Of what I really am

It’s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I’m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I’ve been wrong, I’ve been down,
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream “are we having fun yet?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn’t cut it as a poor man stealing

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me

This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It’s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I’m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I’ve been wrong, I’ve been down,
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream “are we having fun yet?”

[3x]
Yeah, yeah, are we having fun yet?

Yeah, yeah, no, no.
