You Know You're Right: Nirvana

"Rather be dead than cool......." I remember Kurt Cobain saying this in one of his songs. I can't explain how cool this guy was; I like each an every song he sang. When I listened to this song for the first time, I thought this song was awesome but it became more special when I read that this was the last recorded song of "Nirvana". Cobain wrote this song as a sarcastic reference to his wife Courtney Love, at a very turbulent time in their relationship (shortly before his suicide), the title and predominant lyric: "you know your right" and also "nothing really bothers her, she just wants to love herself", both refer to Kurt's frustration with Courtney. This song was not released until 2002 and Courtney had played this song live with her band members tributing to Cobain before the release.



Lyrics:


I will never bother you
I will never promise too
I will never follow you
I will never bother you


Never say a word again
I will crawl away for good


I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
I always knew it would come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never failed to fail
Pain
Pain
Pain


You know you're right
You know you're right
You know you're right


I'm so warm and calm inside
I no longer have to hide
Lets talk about someone else
Steaming soup against her mouth
Nothing really bothers her
She just wants to love herself


I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
I always knew it'd come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never failed to fail


Pain
Pain
Pain
Pain
Pain


You know you're right
You know your right
Pain...
