Radiohead I Might Be Wrong Lyrics

Last updated: 09/05/2011 11:00:00 AM

I might be wrong
I might be wrong
I could have sworn
I saw a light coming on

I used to think
I used to think
There is no future left at all
I used to think

Open up, begin again
Let's go down the waterfall
Think about the good times
And never look back
Never look back

What would I do?
What would I do?
If I did not have you?

Open up, let me in
Let's go down the waterfall
Have ourselves a good time
It's nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all

Thanks to for submitting I Might Be Wrong Lyrics.

Just a Thought | Reviewer: McPherson | 9/4/11

Maybe Thom Yorke's saying that human experience and, by extension, history, is cyclical. When we're happy, we have little recollection of sadness and cannot imagine that one day we might either spoil it for ourselves or that the chips will fall and what we have will be gone. Same goes for sad times when the bleakest, blackest despair becomes a comfort, an assurance that happiness is impossible anyway.
On a broader scale, we have to base our every act on the premise that 'I might be wrong'. We could die, become ill, lose family and friends, find the economy collapsed and the world in turmoil, fires, floods, acts of God, alien invasions, whatever...which would spoil whatever plans we're making for ourselves, whether it's to get married, to finish college, to become an electrician, etc. All one can really do is dive into the waterfall facefirst and pray for the best.
Kind of a Buddhist theme with this song: Dive into the waterfall, there's nothing else. Everything is impermanent, all we have is now.

I you wish to support Radiaohead pleas DO NOT buy the box set as the proceeds do not go to the band, but rather the previous record label they've managed to disentangle from. By all means download all songs from their websire and be a creatiove one and make your own box set and your own imagination, you'd be suprised at what you come up with kiddies.

if you like depressing music... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/1/09

this is the song for you.

this is the most amazing song, and one of my favourite radiohead creations. The lyrics are so simple but have such deep hidden meaning. The beat is fantastic and i just can't stop listening to it!
I bet at least 99% of people can to relate to at least one line in this song.
If you haven't downloaded this already, DO IT NOW!!

Is the noise I feel like making when explaining how INCREDIBLE this band is.

Can I just take the time to say a couple of things.

1. I do agree that Thom Yorke is an absolute genius, in more ways than one, but please don't forget the rest of the band. I don't think that Thom can do all this on his own (As his album Eraser showed quite clearly). Thom has said him self that even Phil (Drummer) has a large input into how the music is made, in a deeper level than just the drums.

2. You all should buy the box set of their work. Every single one of their albums is fantastic. I know that Pablo Honey is no where near as good as the rest (in my opinion) but it's still a great album. And in the box set, you get the I Might Be Wrong live album, which has the most incredible live songs, such as Like Spinning Plates on Piano, which is just amazing.

Support this band.

A thankful song | Reviewer: Dicci | 4/20/09

I read somewhere that in the time they recorded the Amnesiac, Thom was very depressed.

During that period, his wife was his only help, and the only one who could get him out of such that hell.

I think this song is kind of Thom's way of saying: Thanks

The truest song lyrically, since love will tear us apart. | Reviewer: Donald | 11/18/08

This song helped me through a bad break up with a girl I spent much of my childhood and young adulthood with. My life went downhill after she left me but one day while teaching myself to play this song it struck me "What would I do, If I did not have you, I'd start again, I'd begin again."

Ever since then I made a promise to myself to think about the good times and never the bad, and eventually, to never look back. And it worked. I found love again and I owe a bit of the thanks to songs like this.

I think this song is amazingly and beautifully simple. The lyrics are strong and convey something everyone's been through at least once in their lifetime. It makes me think about someone very dear to me and how he altered my life when I thought I had nothing. I will be forever grateful to him and dedicate this song to him.

Remarks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/25/08

Talk about a modest masterpiece, which some may never have noticed.To me, it says something about someone who was depressed ("I used to think
There was no future left at all") and suddenly realized that life went on anyways, and that it didn't matter whether he tought there was no future, because the future was happening and from the moment (he discovered he was wrong) on he had to keep his eyes straight into the future and enjoying the present.I believe it fits de Amnesiac context, all those wistful feelings and whatever was happening while the album was recorded.

That's bout' it.

I might be wrong | Reviewer: sezerp | 5/24/08

Dammit... this song is brilliant and so unique. It may sounds a bit scary, but its all about I feel at teh moment. Passage of time, endurance of faith overfilled with doubts, collapsing feelin' and abandonment. Great tune of the greatest Radiohead.
