Eyes Wide Open

We have all heard Gotye's hit song Somebody That I Used To Know but the rest of the album 'Making Mirrors' is amazing.  A friend of mine gave me the 'Making Mirrors' album as a gift.  Hint: makes a great gift.  Gotye is originally from Australia via Belgum.  His real name is Wouter "Wally" De Backer, his stage name Gotye comes from the french name Gauthier which is translated as Walter (Wouter).  Every song on the album is timed perfectly as not one song drags on and on like most do on a final album.  My girlfriend and I both agreed that the song titled I Feel Better is currently a favorite on the album.  It's up beat and fun.  And just makes you feel happy.  I suggest listening to it when you feel like you are having a bad day. 

"I Feel Better"

There was a time I was down, down
I didn't know what to do
I was just stumbling around, around
Thinking things could not improve
I couldn't look on the bright side
Of anything at all
That's when you gave me a call

Now I feel better, better, better than before
I feel better, better, better, now I'm not down any more

And there were times I was sure, so sure
I couldn't turn it around
I couldn't care any more
About the good things I found
That's when you gave me a reason
To make me smile again
I only have to see you and then

I feel better, better, better than before
I feel better, better, better, now I'm not down any more
I feel better, better, better than before
I feel better, better, better, now I'm not down any more

Life sometimes seems to get the best of you
Like everything just brings you down
Just when you think there's nothing you can do
A friendly face will bring you around
And you'll feel better

You'll feel better, you'll feel better,
Better than before
You'll feel better, much better
No you won't get down any more
