Alanis Morissette: Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie
I had always loved one song above the rest.
Today it made me cry.
The words mean more fifteen years on...
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing
that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy
that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you
Then I went rummaging on YouTube to find a live performance of the track.
It gave me goosebumps.
As I listened I scrolled through the comments and came across this...
