I’m on the pursuit of happiness and
I know everything that shines ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, I’ll be good
Although I’m a Kid Cudi fan for the most part, I really like Lissie’s version of this song. Her covers are always pretty awesome.
What gets me most in this song are just the vibes that it sends out. The “I’ll be ok. What will be, will be” kind of vibes.
It’s about living your life to the fullest without worries of what others think and also without worries of what may happen to you the next day, month, year, etc. Now, everything in moderation people. Not saying to go cliff jumping or to go do something illegal and dangerous. Just saying that we can’t live our lives worrying about what may happen next. What we need to do is live in the current moment. To seriously live with a live free type of mentality.
That saying “life isn’t fair” is one of the truest things I’ve ever heard. But even though things won’t always go our way and often life will throw things our way that are less than ideal, we have to get up and embrace life. When life gets rough, we shouldn’t “lay awake in our beds full of sorrow.” We should get ready to face tomorrow.
Things in this life won’t always shine with gold, but we’ll be good once we learn to stop letting those bad things put our life on hold.
