Nirvana - Something In The Way (lyrics)

Uploaded by zibzib20 on Sep 15, 2009

This is probably the saddest song I've ever heard.

Kurt Cobain wrote this about his life. He talks about living under a nearby bridge, which he claimed happened when he got kicked out of the house for dropping out of high school and refusing to get a job. He expresses his feelings and emotions by saying "something in the way" - he thought everything was in the way every time he tried to feel better. The lyrics to this song were spray painted by Cobain on the wall of the bridge that he claimed to have lived under when he left his home. It was later painted over in a clean up of the city. When recording this song, Kurt Cobain whispered his vocals so quietly that producer Butch Vig had to turn his recording levels all the way up.
