Hand in My Pocket

At this point in my life, I’ve been thinking about “life” on a daily basis. Feeling like I’m having all of these “profound moments.” Maybe that’s just the point I am at in life, where I feel everything must have some meaning. Or maybe no meaning at all; see what I mean? Whatever. I do believe though that I’ve found my life song… at least for my life in this moment. It’s called “Hand in My Pocket” by the lovely Alanis Morissette, and I’d say it’s a pretty accurate description… at least 98% (took away a percent because I don’t smoke, and another percent because I don’t know how to play the piano).

I’m poor but I’m kind
I’m short but I’m healthy, yeah
I’m high but I’m grounded
I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed
I’m lost but I’m hopeful baby 

What it all comes down to
Is that everything’s gonna be fine fine fine
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

I feel drunk but I’m sober
I’m young and I’m underpaid
I’m tired but I’m working, yeah
I care but I’m restless
I’m here but I’m really gone
I’m wrong and I’m sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything’s gonna be quite alright
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette

And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven’t got it all figured out just yet
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

I’m free but I’m focused
I’m green but I’m wise
I’m hard but I’m friendly baby
I’m sad but I’m laughing
I’m brave but I’m chickenshit
I’m sick but I’m pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one’s really got it figured out just yet
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano

And what it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything’s just fine fine fine
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab
