Real – Goo Goo Dolls

I just love this song….

I know a lot of people live in the Goo’s days from The Continental and measure what they do now by that, but in many ways that is unfair.

They still put out cool muzak have grown musically…plus they love this stupid city of ours.

My measure for bands is if the speak to through the songs they do…the Goo Goo Dolls do just that.

I love this line from “Real”

In uncertain times, the uncertain rules apply

I am the eternal Buffalo weirdo and am biased with the Goos because John Resnick grew up in B-F…so it goes.

Read entire lyrics for the song after the jump…

Real

You read the news, it turns you inside out
And everybody feels the same as you
In uncertain times, the uncertain rules apply
Caught in the blind spot of being in love

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you’re feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive
Tonight

I need to feel you there
I want to know where I belong
And I felt the sting, the sting of corrosion
And I need a safe place to close my eyes

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you’re feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive

You, you were so lost
And it was so much more than you could bear
And I was caught in my defeat
You’re alone and incomplete
Will this sound ever break down the wall

Can you feel
Real like you are
Can you feel in love
When you’re feeling alive
And the biggest chance that we can take is open arms and wide awake
Hold me now,
So we can feel alive

(So I can feel alive…)
Tonight.
