Marlon from United StatesI would like to know the name of the children who appears on the video clip (at least the singer).
Rr from Middle EarthI thought this song was about someone's pride and belief that what they have fought for something which they now regret. For instance, fighting with a sibling for so long that they now believe that you hate them, though you do not hate them, you believe they must hate you, and probably think you hate them in turn. You want to fix it, but you can't; you let it continue for so long, and revealing your weakness to the sibling seems futile; they will not forgive you, and only use your grovelling as an opportunity for spite. So you act careless- put on a facade of joy to cover your tears, because the pride will not allow you to cry. At least, in front of anyone; you probably weep within your own solstice and isolation. Well that's what I made of it, at least.
Hugh from Phoenix, AzSimply a great 2 1/2 minute pop song. Very catchy.
Chris from Media, PaAlso appears in "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist." It's Nick's (Michael Cera) ringtone on his cellphone.
Eva from Cologne, GermanyThe Cure describe this as "An attempt at a 60's pop song"...no more.
Adam from Greenfield, InThis song was also used in the "Wedding Singer" with Adam Sandler.
Nikkita from Panama, OtherThe song was used in the film "Boys don't cry" (1999),but it was not included on the soundtrack.
Carissa from Seattle, WaI love this song so much. The beat is so playful and it is fun to listen to. It sort of reminds me of my old boyfriend.
Iara from Santiago, Chilethis is an excellent song and i think a lot of boys must be identified with it.The world is constantly giving pressure to little kids that just wanna have fun,but the world says to them that they must be tough,and strong enough to not to cry.Awesome song,i love it.
Nicole from Nottellin, OrWell, it's sort of about maintaining the manly image. The singer won't tell his girlfriend (or boyfriend) how much he loves her - he won't expose his emotions - and so she leaves him and now he knows it's too late to plead and beg forgiveness. Great song from a great album.
