Hey hey hey! “Positive Tunes” right here! I'm JR.
And this is where we sing and learn English with all these positive cool beats.
No swearing, no sex, no violence. Only positivity!!
Alright! I bet today's tune is definitely gonna strike a chord with all the young hearts out there
'cos it was definitely my teenage reflection.
Kind of the song that makes you
wanna sing your heart out to

[Ah ah ah ah ah…]
And if you're a little bit older, it's totally okay.
As long as you embrace a young heart
like me it's… good.

Okay, so this is Simple Plan's song back in 2004
“Welcome To My Life”
When you're 17 or 18, you're young, you're sort of caught up in between adulthood and childhood.
Sometimes people tell you to grow up
while other times they tell you to keep
out of grown-up's business.

And you're confused. You're bewildered.
You're kind of caught up in between, and that's sucks!
Do you want me to be a kid or do you
want me to be a grown up?

And when you're young, the mind is so sensitive.
It's kind of like how kid's taste buds are much more sensitive in various ways compared to the adult.
So when kids are eating and they say
something's spicy.

That's spicy!
And the parent keeps telling them, “ No, it's not.”
No! Take it from the kid.
It is spicy. You just don't feel it.
Parents… my advice... just feed your kids candy.
That'll make everybody happy including your dentist.
So this song is about that teenage angst you get
when you're in middle school or high school where everything doesn't seem right.
So let's sing it out, and hear out the lyrics.
Do you ever feel like breaking down
Do you ever feel out of place
Like somehow you just don't belong
And no one understands you
Do you ever want to run away
Do you lock yourself in your room
With the radio on turned up so loud
that no one hears you screaming

No you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what it's like to be like me
To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you
No you don't know what it's like
Welcome to my life
Okay, that's the song. I hope you like it.
Very emo, right?
No, not Elmo… emo!
There's nothing wrong about being emo.
You know we've all been through that when we were kids, when we were young.
And this is the part where we break down the lyrics and teach you some or the related phrases and vocabulary.

Or, showing a hopeless sense.
So it's like

The lyrics, "Are you desperate to find sth more before your life is over."
The lyrics, "Are you desperate to find sth more before your life is over."
We all desperate to live a more meaningful life
especially when we are young… full of dreams… longing.
Say no more. I understand.
Okay, and that's the song for today.
Simple Plan's “Welcome To My Life”
And I bet it spoke your mind in some
way. I hope you like it.

Just one more thing,
I just want you to know that it's okay to be alone.
And loneliness sometimes is just a part of life. It's just a part of growing up.
Sometime you feel alone, you feel isolated, you feel fragile, you feel afraid.
But you just gotta keep in mind that
time like these, they come and go. It's just like daytime and nighttime, how they circulate.
And you gotta know that there are always people out there who love you.
I used to talk to the sky when I felt lonely.
That was my thing when I was in high school. You can try it if you want.
And there are very important lessons that you can actually take away from these specific moments,
and only these moments alone.
So when you're lonely,
when you feel isolated, when you feel like
on the edge of breaking down.
Just try to think what can you take away from this
'cos it won't last forever.
It's just a part of life.
Maybe just even a dot in life.
It's not the entire picture. Okay?
Don't feel lonely.
I'm always here with you guys.
See you guys next week!
