Nickelback - How You Remind Me

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

[Chorus:]
It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no


It's not like you didn't know that
I said I love you and I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

And this is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

[Chorus:]
It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealin'

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
This is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, Yeah
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah
Are we having fun yet? Yeah, yeah
Are we having fun yet? Yeah, yeah

"How You Remind Me" is a song by Canadian rock band Nickelback. Written by lead singer Chad Kroeger and composed by the band, the track was released on July 17, 2001, as the lead single from their third studio album, Silver Side Up (2001). A "Gold Mix" was made for latter editions of the single with the heavier guitars edited out of the chorus. Kroeger referred to this song as the song that put Nickelback on the map when played at their concert in Sturgis, South Dakota. Considered to be Nickelback's signature song, "How You Remind Me" reached the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and was named the number-one most played song on US radio of the 2000s decade by Nielsen Soundscan, being spun over 1.2 million times on US airwaves since its release in 2001 to the end of 2009. The song was ranked fourth on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade and 75th on the UK decade-end chart. "How You Remind Me" was also rated the number-one rock song and number-four alternative song of the decade of the 2000s by Billboard. In an interview with MTV, Nickelback’s lead singer Chad Kroeger said that he wrote the song about his old girlfriend Jodi, who he had a rather dysfunctional relationship with. He kept the lyrics very ambiguous, however, which accounts for much of the song’s success, as many people could relate to an ex who started pointing out all of your faults at the same time and caused considerable heartbreak: “This time I’m mistaken, for handing you a heart worth breaking.” Silver Side Up was Nickelback’s third album, and many of the songs were about relationships and personal issues.
