Wonderful Lyrics - Everclear

Review The Song (15)

"Hey, ain't life wonderful? Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... Isn't everything wonderful now?"

I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them

I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
Make everything be wonderful again

Hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
Hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that make me wanna cry

Close my eyes when I go to bed
And I dream of angels who make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world's so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that it's all okay
I laugh aloud so my friends won't know
When the bell rings I just don't wanna go home

Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world is so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

No, I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
No, I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

I don't wanna hear you say
That I will understand someday
No, no, no, no
I don't wanna hear you say
You both have grown in a different way
No, no, no, no
I don't wanna meet your friends
And I don't wanna start over again
I just want my life to be the same
Just like it used to be
Some days I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now...

I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

Wonderful Pale Green Stars | Reviewer: Linda Bjt | 10/22/10

I love this song, another one I like just as well by Everclear is Pale Green Stars (Sparkle and Fade) which is about the same subject. Poor skinny little Amanda, but she's got them pale green stars on her ceiling. This guy, I wonder what his life was like because he can write such great lyrics about stuff no one else even likes to talk about.

I listen to a lot of everclear but this is my favorite song by them. My parents got divorced when I was five and this song pretty much sums up everything. Especilly when they say "I don't wanna meet your friend, I don't wanna start over again"

it's so true and I cry web I listen to it sometimes because it totally sums up my life

yeah! | Reviewer: saint | 9/19/09

it's like hearing nice words from someone older just to ease the pains and disastrous probabilities that would happen so you dont think of it negatively. the lies adults tell when we were younger. there's always that monster somewhere so we couldnt sleep. and sometimes they look like our parents. you could not just figure it that they could be that ugly when you were six because everything they told you was wonderful.

Great lyrics, great rhythms | Reviewer: naughty | 7/31/09

It's like that the singer is talking to the youth version of himself about what he feels when he looks back at his childhood and what he felt when he was a child. Almost exactly what I went through when I heard promises from my parents when my feelings got hurt.

Great song!

wonderfull | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/11/08

i know exactly how it feels. my parents are still togeather but i still remember them arguin an a still hear it now, i woke up other morning to them arguing and this song was playing in my head t drown it out. it relly means a lot to me

i can definitely relate | Reviewer: Xenas | 1/9/08

i can definitely relate to this song because even though i had a pretty awesome childhood, i still had to hear my mom and dad fighting all the time, even over the dumbest thing. i wish everything could go back to the way it was before they argued all the time. i never really let it affect me that much because i was so used to it, but i can understand how it feels to go through things like that, i have a friend that went through her parent's divorce and i know how she must have felt.

it touches a nerve | Reviewer: Andreaa | 11/23/07

i love this song so much, it really puts everything in perspctive how a chld goes through something like a divorce or just a rough childhood. i can't say i really relate to it, but i do think about someone whenever i hear it. someone that's vry dear to me and now i know how he must feel. great song.

wondeful | Reviewer: Z | 11/18/07

when you think about it and understand the words you can just think how every one that can relate to this song feels. it's a song that you'll never forget and its something thats true for alot of people, it's sad and truthful and its something that does happen to people and i love it its an amazing song its.... wonderful.
