Music Monday: Somebody Like Me (Crazy) by Sunrise Avenue

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 first came across Sunrise Avenue years ago, when their song, Hollywood Hills had become hit. They are playing catchy poprock songs and I finally got to see them last year when they visited Hungary. They are originally from Finland (what’s with that country having awesome bands like Sunrise Ave and Poets of the Fall??).

Their latest album is Heartbreak Century and I’ve listened to it quite a lot right before their Hungarian show. It has several good songs, like I Help You Hate Me, Point of No Return, Never Let Go, Beautiful and of course Somebody Like Me (Crazy). I choose the latter today, because, well, because I’m in that kind of mood. And because it’s quite fitting 🙂 It was a close run with Beautiful though, so make sure to check out that song too!

Lyrics

I fell again and I can’t pretend
It’s like your darkness kind of drew me in
I see your pain and I’m just the same
One of those feelings you just can’t explain

Maybe you see the weight on my shoulders
Though I try to hide it all
But I wanna be your army of angels
Though I need ’em even more

Cause if you love somebody like me
Can only mean that you’re crazy
Just as crazy as me and
That’s why I love you baby
I’m not a superman and
I ain’t got no masterplan
Let’s just take it all as it goes
Cause if you love somebody like me
You gotta be crazy

Two twisted minds, they think alike
It’s way more fun to skip the warning signs
My restless soul, it was all alone
But here with you I kind of feel at home

Maybe you see the weight on my shoulders
Though I try to hide it all
But I wanna be your army of angels
Though I need ’em even more

Cause if you love somebody like me
Can only mean that you’re crazy
Just as crazy as me and
That’s why I love you baby
I’m not a superman and
I ain’t got no masterplan
Let’s just take it all as it goes
Cause if you love somebody like me
You gotta be crazy

We could pretend that everything’s normal
And just try to be friends
But baby you know we’d be drowning in
Boredom and we both know where it ends

We could pretend that everything’s normal
And just try to be friends
But baby you know we’d be drowning in
Boredom and we both know where it ends

Cause if you love somebody like me
Can only mean that you’re crazy
Just as crazy as me and
That’s why I love you baby
I’m not a superman and
I ain’t got no masterplan
Let’s just take it all as it goes
Cause if you love somebody like me

Can only mean that you’re crazy
Just as crazy as me and
That’s why I love you baby
I’m not a superman and
I ain’t got no masterplan
Let’s just take it all as it goes
Cause if you love somebody like me
You gotta be crazy (crazy)

Absolutely motherfucking crazy
