Aimee Mann - Wise Up Lyrics




It's not what you thought
When you first began it
You got what you want
Now you can hardly stand it, though
By now you know
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
Till you wise up

You're sure there's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think one drink
Will shrink you till you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
Till you wise up

Prepare a list for what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
Till you wise up

No, it's not going to stop
Till you wise up
No, it's not going to stop
So just give up

    All of the characters in Magnolia are holding on to their past identities. They all need to wise up. You need to give up who you are to be who you were meant to be.

  25. Alfr Edo

    Never seen the film. The song is great. Simple pop melody in a great instrumentation. Probably done by a serious musician. Sadly she cannot recreate this studio magic in live concerts.

    이 노래 마왕이 사연읽을때 분위기 잡으려고 틀어주던 노래네 우울하거나 감동스러운 사연 읽을때면 항상 이 노래를 빽뮤직으로 쓰면서 차분하게 사연을 읽어주면 우리 고스 식구들 다 같이 울기도 하고 마왕이 다독거려주면 다함께 힘내기도 하고 용기도 얻고 그런 노래네 이 노래는 나한테는 항상 할링의 의미를 가져왔었지 그런데 요즘 이 노래를 들으면 뭔가 예전 기억이 떠오르면서 나도모르게 입꼬리가 올라가면서도 문득 마왕 생각에 우울해지기도 하는 그런 노래야 항상 내가 함들때면 불평 불만 다 들어주면서 나한테 용기를 주던 마왕인데 정작 마왕 당신이 정말로 함들때 아무것도 못해주넜다는 그런 죄책감도 들고 아무튼 복잡한 감정이 올라오게 만드네 글을 길게 쓰다보니 점점 이상하게 써진다 그럼 마무리는 마왕이~

  69. Private Jimmy

    Wish I would have heard this song in 2013.. when in a "relationship" with a sociopath narcissist psychopath true Jezebel.. would be a foreign language to ask her..I'm telling you..a Jezebel..like a black widow spider.. I ran away 2 years ago..and after she got all my things and both cars..and she still wants to add insult to injury. A real monster..turns out hooker ..cops have helped her get both my cars and all my things.. they'd let her murder me as well I have zero doubt about that. What's her motive? A: demonic hatred for the only man who's ever and continues to tell the truth about her..and of course...my SS.. since I haven't been able to finish my annulment, since it's in a different county, and again she basically stole both my cars from me, robbed my storage of 10 g worth of my things..and cops helped her the entire way.

  70. Private Jimmy

    If I'm not mistaken, the story is JT Anderson (Magnolia producer) heard this song and decided to create a movie around it, he was so moved. That's how Aimee got the whole soundtrack, and is the meaning of the whole movie

    Currently i watch Community and hear this music in this series for the first time. Yesterday, I watched Magnolia for the first time, not knowing that played here too. Coincidence? I think not.

    h20

    The movie was based around themes and insights from her lyrics. She was dating PT Anderson when he made the movie.

  95. 93parasol

    This song, right now.. I'm soooo in love with a very special person.. "it's not going to stop, so just give up."

  96. Poppy Stils

    People have a bleak outlook to this song. I think it's about falling in love hense the opening lines 'you got what you want, and you can hardly stand it'. She's saying once you fall in love it will never stop hurting so just give up trying to resist it. Wise up. That's what the song means IMO.

    Cindy Patterson

    Poppy Stils ; i think people can refer to it whatever they want. whatever is hurting them in life but they don't want to give it up. if this song helps someone get through something that's all that matters. . . .
