Amazing video and song.

I guess this was the first video that i saw and i thought that she’s back to the old Avril, when she was simply, without so much make up, and she didn’t need really too many decorade for express herself :) She’s really a great artist, and she have everything she needs to make any video wonderful.

# 5

I must admite that i expected a little more… but anyway i love this video, her tears are real, this video is, like she said, raw, exposed and real, simple but beautiful, and the most important thing, THIS IS WHAT GOODBYE LULLABY MEANS, i love smile and what the hell but THIS new video is the real meaning of the album, thanks for that Avril…

I thought the song was terrible…havent liked any of her songs since her first Album. Hopefully the next song that comes out will be better.

Dear Avril: broaden vocabulary @ 09/09/2011 at 11:09 pm

Songwriting at it’s best ladies and gentlemen!

the fact that she gets banged by a total douche bag kills her reputation

she used to have morals

I see only 12 year olds comment here otherwise they knew she stole the title from one of greatest Pink Floyd songs ever.

what the? @ 09/10/2011 at 2:31 am

This is terrible.

@Hi: Wow, what a fcuking musical genius. You might as well call out Avril’s Black Star and Everybody Hurts while you’re at it.

No, seriously? It doesn’t make sense at all. How did Avril steal it when they don’t even own any fcuking rights to the phrase “Wish You Were Here”? Songs with same song titles are fine, just as long as the lyrics are different.

@Herman: All of her songs have always been straight to the point. She’s not the metaphor, poetic type.

@hmmm: You’re not Avril’s mother so sit your butt down.

Before all the fans start giving me thumbs down and all the haters thumbs up, I must state that I actually like her music. She is yet to grow on the lyrical level but then again not everyone uses big words and deeeeeep meanings from the get-go. She started off full power, indeed in the ways of Alanis (comparing Canadian songstresses) but I think the fame took (and run her) over (plus she was a few yrs younger than Alanis) and I have since then always felt she perhaps hasn’t really lived out her teenage years and she’s somehow still living in them. Hence the clothes, the heavy make up and insecurity. But that’s okay, she needs to grow and develop and she’s clearly here to stay, no matter what haters say, she’s created an empire with clothes, perfumes, music, etc. The girl works hard for her eyeliner. :)
I must admit, the lyrics could be a bit deeper or less simple but then again, her audience IS mostly young girls. The music of the song is very Avril and she is staying true to herself. Again, I really like the music, gets stuck in my head and not in a bad way. I have a friend who’s 55 and he is more musical than lyrical, meaning the song means more to him from the musical than lyrical context and he loves hers. And he’s tough audience.
But the video… It is beautiful, the rawness and the reality of it are amazing and the emotion is breathtaking. She also tells it how it is. But I must admit, I was very disturbed by the amount of make up running down her face. I feel she uses it as a mask from the outside world. She doesn’t need it to be beautiful and I only wish she didn’t need it to feel beautiful.
This said, I haven’t heard the entire new album yet but given the situation she was in when she was writing it, I think we’ll get the growing Avril. Godspeed girl, you’re talented, just don’t be insecure. :)

are you high? @ 09/10/2011 at 5:18 am



I don’t understand the point of wearing 20 gallons of eyeliner and mascara when you know that you are going to cry or somehow get it wet. The running eyeliner and mascara down your face is just NOT a good look. The video reminds me of LeAnn Rime’s video for the song, “Probably Wouldn’t Be This Way.” I don’t like the song or the video.

@julie: Very nicely said.Alot of people don’t get Avril but you clearly do.
