Some Nights Lyrics – Fun

1929

The issue of the American Civil War remains important even today. This time American indie pop band Fun turned to this question in their new song, Some Nights. The track was released on 4 June, 2012, as part of Fun’s sophomore studio album of the same name. The Some Nights music video shows the two sides of the conflict and pictures the harm war does to both. You will see several stories in one – that of the commander of the Union force, a middle-aged farmer in love with his life, two young lovers separated by the battlefield. The Some Nights lyrics provided below stress how high the personal costs are for both winner and loser. What do you think about the song?

Fun – Some Nights Song Words

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck;
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they’d just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I’m still not sure what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don’t know anymore…

This is it, boys, this is war – what are we waiting for?
Why don’t we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype – save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I’m half as liked,
but here they come again to jack my style

That’s alright (that’s alright);
I found a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I, who I, who I
a-a-a-am, oh who am I, m-mm, m-mm.

Well, some nights I wish that this all would end
‘Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights I’m scared you’ll forget me again
Some nights I always win (I always win)

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I’m still not sure what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don’t know…

So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

No. When I see stars, when I see stars, that’s all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like a swan, so come on
Oh, come on. Oh, come on.

Well, that is it, guys, that is all – five minutes in and I’m bored again
Ten years of this, I’m not sure if anybody understands
This is not one for the folks back home;
I’m sorry to leave, mom, I had to go
Who the f-ck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she called “love”
But when I look into my nephew’s eyes…
Man, you wouldn’t believe the most amazing things that can come from…
Some terrible lie.

The other night, you wouldn’t believe the dream
I just had about you and me
I called you up, but we’d both agree
It’s for the best you didn’t listen
It’s for the best we get our distance…
For the best you didn’t listen
It’s for the best we get our distance…
