Today I read a status message in Google Talk that read:

So no one told you life was going to be this way.
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, you’re love life’s DOA.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

I thought these were the lines written by that person n complimented her!!! And she said…those are not mine, that is title track of famous TV serial F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😦

And I was so surprised!!! I have watched Friends a zillion times…have almost all Seasons on my hard disk and watch it often…and still I could not recollect that it was Title Track of Friends.

Firstly, when I watch it on Laptop or DVD player I forward the title track, so till date I have not listened to the entire track even once! (As in paid attention to lyrics and meaning…)

Secondly, I remembered the tune rather than lyrics. So when I read those words (without music/tune) I could not recognize…

So now I am going through the lyrics and understanding the meaning of it and find that it is very poetic!!! With or without music; with or without being Title track of TV serial…

Sometimes even the thing you know (or you think you know!) could be a complete revelation when viewed from a different lens…

Here goes the lyrics:

So no one told you life was going to be this way.
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, you’re love life’s DOA.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.
I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.

You’re still in bed at ten, the work began at eight.
You’ve burned your breakfast, so far, things are going great.
Your mother warned you there’d be days like these,
But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees.

That, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.
I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.

No one could ever know me, no one could ever see me.
Seems like you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me.
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with,
Someone I’ll always laugh with, even at my worst, I’m best with you.

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.
I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.
