Does anyone else love this song and relate to it? I can't stop listening to this- the lyrics and the song itself are just like an anthem to me. I can relate to everything in this song- it describes being depressed yet having those moments when you're "on" (maybe manic?), and having to fake your way through the day and hiding your depression and hurt and just trying to be strong and just all the **** I go through all the time. Does anyone else relate to this song? Here is a link to a youtube of the song (don't mind the anime) and the lyrics.

Sometimes in the morning I am petrified and can't move
Awake but cannot open my eyes
And the weight is crushing down on my lungs
I know I can't breathe
And hope someone will save me this time
And your mother's still callin you insane and high
Swearin it's different this time
And you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her
That god never blessed her insides
Then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things
Crawl back into bed to dream of a time
When your heart was open wide and you love things just because
Like the sick and dying

And sometimes when you're on
You're really ****in on
And your friends they sing along
And they love you
But the lows are so extreme
That the good seems ****in cheap
And it teases you for weeks in its absence
But you'll fight and you'll make it through
You'll fake it if you have to
And you'll show up for work with a smile
You'll be better
And You'll be smarter
And More grown up and a better daughter or son
And a real good friend
And you'll be awake
You'll be alert
You'll be positive though it hurts
And you'll laugh and embrace all your friends
And you'll be a real good listener
You'll be honest
You'll be brave
You'll be handsome and you'll be beautiful
You'll be happy

Your ship may be comin in
You're weak but not givin in
To the cries and the wails of the valley below
And your ship may be comin in
You're weak but not givin in
And you'll fight it you'll go out fightin all of em

I love Rilo Kiley. I never really paid much attention to the lyrics when I listened to that song, I can see where a lot of people with anxiety/depression could relate to it.

Pretty cool song, first time I heard it, although not Rilo Kiley, Take Offs and Landings is one of my favorite albums.
