Beck Guess I'm Doing Fine Lyrics

Last updated: 05/19/2011 11:00:00 AM

There's a blue bird at my window
I can't hear the songs he sings
All the jewels in heaven
They don't look the same to me

I just wade the tides that turned
Till I learn to leave the past behind

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

All the battlements are empty
And the moon is laying low
Yellow roses in the graveyard
Have no time to watch them grow

Now I bade a friend farewell
I can do whatever pleases me

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

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

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 (x2)

Deep, Deeper. Sunk... | Reviewer: Keith | 5/19/11

Everyone kind of blew off this record, but it is probably the most heartfelt album Beck ever made. Sea Change as a whole is a great concept record and "Guess I'm Doing Fine" for me is the pinnacle. He captures post emotional trauma better than anyone I've ever heard, and the title line, though perhaps a bit trite, perfectly sums up the idea of saying what everyone want to hear after you have gone through a major upset and they ask you how you are. He's NOT fine, everything around him is a compilation of small details that rub his nose in his misery... Magnificent and deserving of far more accolades than he got.

One can definitely feel Beck's pain. Guy released this album after a break up and he was venting some awesome feelings. Emotions strikes chords in his music and the listener. Try singing the song and not smiling when you sing "guess I'm doing fine." I just know that Beck was smiling during his recording in that particular line; Beck couldn't help it but throw in his signature ironic-type humor. Great song, nuff said...
