Lithium - Nirvana

Lithium

Nevermind
Grunge rock 90s Nirvana alternative


"Lithium" is a song by the American grunge band Nirvana, written by frontman Kurt Cobain. The name of the song is often attributed to the usage of lithium salts as mood stabilizers. Because of this the lyrics are often interpreted as describing bipolar disorder. Cobain is said to have had bipolar disorder, which may have led to the writing of the song "Lithium". Still, there is much disagreement about the exact meaning and interpretation of it. In the Nevermind press kit, Cobain said this about the song: "People who are secluded for so long go insane, and as a last resort they often use religion to keep alive. In the song, the guy's lost his girl and his friends and he's brooding. He's decided to find God before he kills himself. It's hard for me to understand the need for a vice like that, but I can appreciate it too. People need vices." Bruce Lash did a mellow version that was used in the movie Marley & Me. He told Songfacts: "I was looking for songs that were hard or angry or alienated to make sort of loungy Bossa Novas out of. Calm them down" (Lithium Songfacts)


There are several artists named 'Nirvana'; 1) Nirvana was an American grunge band. The band formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987, and it was part of the Seattle grunge scene of the late 80s, alongside bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. As their popularity rose, alternative rock became a dominant genre on American and Canadian radio and music television during the early-to-mid '90s. In late 1987, Cobain and Novoselic recruited drummer Aaron Burckhard (1987–1988). Show more ...

Lithium - Nirvana

I'm so happy 'cause today I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly but that's ok, 'cause so are you
We've broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze 'cause I've found god

I'm so lonely
That's ok, I shaved my head
No, I'm not sad
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard
I'm not sure, I'm so excited
I can't wait to meet you there
And I don't' care, I'm so horny
That's ok, my will is good

I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I killed you, I'm not gonna crack
I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I killed you, I'm not gonna crack

I'm so happy 'cause today I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly but that's ok, 'cause so are you
We've broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze 'cause I've found god

I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I killed you, I'm not gonna crack
I like it, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I killed you, I'm not gonna crack
