Song-Lyric Sunday

The Losers

This is my first installment for Song-Lyric Sunday hosted by Helen Espinosa. This week’s edition looks back at the 90s.

I don’t have a lot of good memories from that decade. I just graduated from Junior High, and was terrified about entering high school because I had endured hell all through seventh grade. Eighth grade is just a blur.

The Losers by Warrior Soul became a personal anthem as I struggled to fit in. After 26 years, it is still as powerful.

The Losers
(Clarke-Ricco-McClanahan)

Have you ever wanted
To be someone you’re not
But you look into the world
And you see what you’ve got

There’s nothin’ there
But brains and guts
Finally open the door
And then it shuts

Look to the center
And I think you’ll find
The people that are gettin’
They are blind

You changed the channel
And there’s nothin’ there
You weren’t born pretty
And it isn’t fair

Here’s to the losers
The substance abusers
To the rejects
All the imperfects

‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
No matter what anyone says
I think we’re beautiful
The most beautiful in the world

You try for jobs
But they say you’re strange
You’re sportin’ a style
That they call pain

So you get in trouble
And your brain is gone
You’re cryin’ out man
But the words are wrong

Here’s to the losers
The substance abusers
To the rejects
All the imperfects

‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
No matter what anyone says
I think we’re beautiful
The most beautiful in the world

I know you’re tired
Of being put down
And all the crap that’s said in town
But you’re the person that matters most
I raise my glass and make a toast

Here’s to the losers
Substance abusers
To the rejects
All the imperfects

To the retarded
And the broken-hearted
To the starving masses
And the lower classes

‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
‘Cause I think we’re beautiful
No matter what anyone says
I think we’re beautiful
