Stoopd lyrics

Here is another installment of my newest blog feature "Stoopid lyrics" where I share with you a well-known song with lyrics that don't make sense.

Keep in mind this doesn't mean the song is stoopid or that I don't like the song. In fact, I like the music of this installment quite a bit, but the lyrics don't make sense.

So, are you ready?

Don't Know Why
by Norah Jones

I waited 'til I saw the sun
I don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I'll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road along

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever

Something has to make you run
I don't know why I didn't come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

They are kind of ridiculous... But, I just take it as she's needing to grow up and old and not go to meet some guy who's bad for her. So she stays and will move on alone.

That's what the song means to me... And I think the video showing her driving away, alone, is fitting.

I used to hear this song and think "I don't know why you didn't come either" but better luck next time.
