Jimi Hendrix Manic Depression Lyrics

Last updated: 03/01/2012 10:00:00 AM

Manic Depression's touching my soul,
I know what I want,
but I just don't know how to go about getting it.

Feeling, sweet feeling
drops from my finger, fingers
Manic Depression's captured my soul.

Woman so willing the sweet cause in vain,
you make love,
you break love,
it's-a all the same when it's...
when it's over.

Music sweet music,
I wish I could caress, caress, caress.
Manic Depression's a frustrating mess.
Well, I think I'll go turn myself off an' go on down.

Really ain't no use me hanging around.
Oh, I gotta see you.

What Jimmie was sayin... | Reviewer: The actual song meaning | 5/19/11

The song is about being frustrated about his love of music, that women could be frustrating to understand, but music fulfilled his soul and was an easier relationship than actual human ones were. Being torn between the two, women jealous of his time and attention spent playing/creating music vs. with them...musicians know what I'm talking about...research it yourself if you disbelieve two cents.

BiPolar and blessed | Reviewer: MoodyKDoost | 12/28/10

Being bipolar is kind of cool, at least I feel extremely great half the time while most people feel sad all the time. I'm hypo-manic( mild bipolar) and I love it.(I mean the song not my disorder,whi am I keeding, being bipolar sucks) ! ; )

Beautiful | Reviewer: Love&peace | 4/22/10

Manic depression is Bi-polar disorder. That's all it was called back when this song was written. Jimi sings the disorder from his soul. I've suffered from bi-polar my entire life and when I first heard this it felt so real... Something that I could relate to. I love Jimi Hendrix and I love this song. We are all thankful to have been graced with such an amazing musical talent.

Perfect description | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/21/10

This song really describes depression without being to gloomy and bleak in sound...the confussion, the apathy, loss of interest in all the most important aspects of life like love, of course the frustration...and finally the spark that drives you to alter your lifestyle...the drumming also helps highlight the "manic" part of the song...I love when he says "cry on guitar" during the solo haha
