Sweet Disposition

In 500 Days of Summer Tom asks Summer, “Why didn’t it work out?” and she responds, “What always happens? Life.” Whether it is love or life, we are challenged with ups and downs and we can’t give up or stop ‘til it’s over.

 

Sweet disposition
Never too soon
Oh, reckless abandon
Like no one’s
Watching you.

A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh
A kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…

So stay there
Cause I’ll be coming over
And while our blood’s still young
It’s so young it runs
We won’t stop till it’s over
Won’t stop to surrender.

Songs of desperation
A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh
A kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…

So stay there
Cause I’ll be coming over
And while our blood’s still young
It’s so young it runs
We won’t stop till it’s over
Won’t stop to surrender.

A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh
A kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…

Sweet Disposition, Temper Trap

This song is primarily a dramatic illusion and comic. The main lines that are repeated throughout the song are:

A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh,
a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs,
Won’t stop ‘til it’s over, won’t stop to surrender.

It talks about life — our life. We are happy for one reason, and sad for another. Things happen that we can’t control and we have to fight through the downs to appreciate and enjoy the ups. A sweet disposition. That’s what we need to get through this difficult life.

As they say, it ain’t over till it’s over… or would you rather like: ’til the fat lady sings?

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
