It's obviously not Beck's meaning, but as a young, gay man in the closet, I found this song immensely powerful after listening to it most recently. The chorus exceptionally: It's only lies that I'm living It's only tears that I'm crying It's only you that I'm losing Guess I'm doing fine I've lived a lie most of my life, the only expense being my immense sadness.
I've lost numerous friends because of something as stupid as liking other members of my gender. However, at the end of the day, I force myself to "guess I'm doing fine. Though most I meet now could not care less, I'm long from leaving the past behind. Finally, the final, most emotionally crippling part of the song: Press my face up to the window To see how warm it is inside See the things that I've been missing Missing all this time I do not feel I have ever been legitimately close to another human being, romantically or otherwise.
I did not go on a date with a man until recently, and am single yet still.
Guess Im Doing Fine Tab by Beck (text version) | Songsterr Tabs with Rhythm
I am turning 20 very soon. Everywhere I go, I'm faced with the things that I've been missing. Relationships, displays of affection, unconditional positive regard, self expression without fear of disapproval, etc. I press my face against the window of my friends lives, and often see that I'm missing something many consider integral to being a fully self actualized human being. Again, this is simply the way the song subjectively relates to my life. What a beautifully sad piece. General Comment Beck is as true as a modern-day human can be.
General Comment he wrote this song right after his friend and fellow musician Elliott Smith died in I remember watching an interview and he was talking about Elliott Smith and Beck's grandfather's death's a lot of possessives impact on his song writing during this album. He still has his family and friends, his life must go on. However, he feels sad for his lost. One of my Beck's favourite songs. General Comment I means purely that he wants to say he is o,k but he really isn't. General Comment This song is beautifully written and sang.
There's so much pain in it, but it remains poignantly sad. It depresses me and makes me feel better at the same time, because someone has felt it all before. Banana Republic. General Comment really pulls at your heart. General Comment Elliott's death might have had an impact on Beck's writing, but it's not in this song.
