To be honest, songs about cheatin' always depressed me. Now they depress me ever more. I'm a die-hard romantic/idealist, which means I'm still looking for things as they should be as compared to the downer side of life.

Bargain - The Who

This song has been my favorite since the first time I heard it, back in high school. It sums up what we're all really after, anyway. I've been listening to it a lot over the past two months, trying to remind myself what the ultimate goal is. It's kept me going, to be honest.


"Bargain"
written by Pete Townshend

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I had
To find you I'd suffer anything and be glad
I'd pay any price just to get you
I'd work all my life and I will
To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I got
To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop
I'd pay any price just to win you
Surrender my good life for bad
To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had


I sit looking 'round
I look at my face in the mirror
I know I'm worth nothing without you
And like one and one don't make two
One and one make one
And I'm looking for that free ride to me
I'm looking for you

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I got
To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop
I'd pay any price just to win you
Surrender my good life for bad
To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had
