Raconteurs, The - Somedays (I Don't Feel Like Trying) Lyrics




I've got so much to give
I got a lot a heart
Yeah only trouble is it's doomed from the start

And I've been riding this thing out since I was 8 yrs old
And if you could just see inside of me you'd see a heart made of gold
And I try to live a good life and keep an open mind
Gave up everything I love and kept it all inside

But somedays I just feel like crying
And somedays I don't feel like trying
But somedays I just feel like crying
And somedays I don't feel like trying

But somedays I just feel like crying
And somedays I don't feel like trying
But somedays I just feel like crying
And somedays I don't feel like trying

Somedays
Somedays
Somedays
Somedays

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

I'm here right now
I'm not dead yet

Raconteurs, The Somedays (I Don't Feel Like Trying) Comments
  1. NiGris

    This song reminds me " tuesday's gone" lynyrd skynyrd. that guitar tone transported me. Will they be inspired by them? Love it

  2. Antonio d'Alessandro

    "Simple man"...hooo😱😱? No Ideas?!!!!
    Lynyrd Skynyrd...!
    Jack...go!!!!

  3. Sammurabi

    God, it's so weird see this. I worked there until just a year or so ago. They've really fixed the place up since I left. Should have stayed, coulda met Jack white.

  4. Johnson Riviera

    Definitely can tell Jack has been hanging out with Neil Young again...

  5. Alice Hamphur

    So nice!
    "Gave up everything I love
    And kept it all inside"...
    💕🖤💔

  6. William Huneycutt

    Really cool video. Greatness.

  7. Joe Krist

    I knew something was particularly weird about this video to me. I just now read the description below and conjured up a faint memory I forgot about. My parents took me to this place when I was real young.

  8. Belafonte Life

    A few times a year due to the nature of my profession I end up having panic attacks. Sometimes on the way to work, sometimes leaving work and once or twice at work. Anyway once in the middle of one of these episodes the part of the song came on “ I’m here right now, I’m not dead yet” came on. Now whenever I start to feel one of them coming I can really dampen the effects by saying this phrase over and over. I don’t think the song is about anxiety, but this has really seemed to help.

  9. Luis Fernando Rojas Velasco

    This song is Rock on the house ;)

  10. Sam Barker

    Rock is dead? Bullshit.

  11. Robert Bauer

    They lead with the despair many feel, and finish with a message of hope, to stay in the fight. Well said, and well done!

  12. DEBORAH BRUNEAU

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!

  13. Jonny Valiant

    I love this fuckin song. These guys are amazing

  14. velocityJE

    *jeff goldblum voice* i forgot my mantra


    the raconteurs "I'M HERE RIGHT NOW I'M NOT DEAD YET"

  15. MetalMonkey

    Isn't this a Skynyrd song?

  16. Lazybiker60

    First heard this song blaring in a boiler repair shutdown in a power plant, always a good way to the day

  17. Stefan Barr

    Tuesdays gone.... Decent ripoff to be fair.

  18. Louder Than Hell TV

    No way to describe how much I Love this song.

  19. Jonathan S.

    Sweet song with an AMAZING last part!!! Jack is God

  20. AnotherWacko

    Somedays I don't feel like trying. I call those days "week days."

  21. g c

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday's Gone

  22. eternalsunshine

    Why does everybody seem to talk only about Jack in every video of the raconteurs, when Brendan Benson is equally important? Jack is more popular, but Brendan is the heart of this band imo.

    Alex D

    eternalsunshine Brendan benson = underrated

    eternalsunshine

    @Alex D very much! I like white stripes more than the raconteurs, but most of my favourite raconteurs songs are written by Brendan Benson (well they never specify who wrote which song, but I'm just guessing which songs are bb's based on the sounds). He definitely deserves more recognition!

    Alex D

    eternalsunshine I 100% agree. His voice is very unique

    eternalsunshine

    @Alex D yeah and his music itself is very different from jack's.

  23. chris Seaborne

    Lyrics...….
    I've got so much to give

    I got a lot a heart

    Yeah, only trouble is, it's doomed from the start

    And I've been riding this thing out

    Since I was 8 yrs old

    And if you could just see inside of me

    You'd see a heart made of gold

    And I try to live a good life

    And keep an open mind

    Gave up everything I love

    And kept it all inside

    Somedays, I just feel like crying

    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays, I just feel like crying

    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays, I just feel like crying

    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays, I just feel like crying

    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays

    Somedays

    Somedays

    Somedays

    I'm here right now

    I'm not dead yet

    I'm here right now

    I'm not dead yet

    I'm here right now

    I'm not dead yet

    I'm here right now

    I'm not dead yet…

  24. St.Augustine

    I gotta lotta heart ❤️

  25. Katherine Skopik

    I know a friend who could really hear those words now...😪 I hope you don’t mind me sharing this with her.

  26. Caleb Hägglund

    Make Dean the 5th member of the band please

  27. Matheus Carvalho

    This reminds "Tuesday's Gone" from Lynyrd skynyrd

    Wade Crawford

    exactly. that opening riff - made me think of Happy Gilmore and Skynard!

    The Whole World Called Me Hank

    Jack would surely say you're right

    Robert Bauer

    I didn't recognize the tune, but got that same Skynyrd vibe listening to this

  28. rodrigo delallata

    Awesome

  29. Tiffany Keith

    Sometimes I wonder if things are just all randomness or if things do happen for a reason because I feel this song was made at the perfect time and I heard it just when I needed it the most.
    I was driving home after an appointment with a probate lawyer, my mom had recently passed away and her live in boyfriend emptied her checking account while she was in hospice.

    My mom died 4 months ago because her breast cancer metastasized to her brain. At 31 years old I had to sign dnr papers and put my 46 year old mother in hospice and watch her die. I have been so angry at the world lately. my mother had me young I thought that meant I was lucky because we would have more time than others together. I have been depressed with serious health anxiety.

    So as I was driving home thinking about how tired I am of waking up feeling like this. I was scanning the radio because my child had my phone. On the college station, which I rarely listen to ever this song came on. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much because of a song. I feel in that moment I needed this song and it’s message. I get up everyday and try to be happy and some days are hardy than others but I have hope that I won’t feel this way forever.

  30. Matthew Neal

    It's like Tuesday's Gone ran out of methadone and Prozac

  31. Living Tactically

    Wow... must have gotten inspiration from The Allman Brother band- Whipping post.

  32. Lucas Piccoli

    I love the mantra "I'm here right now, I'm not dead yet" at the end of the song. It's perfect how it grows in intensity, the song starts sad but then ends full of hope. It's like shouting at the world: "I'M NOT DEAD YET!". Beautiful song :)

  33. Erin Vinson

    In high school our senior trip was to House on the Rock, Me and my friends slipped outside and got soooo High!!! Best trip ever!!!

  34. Jason Mogensen

    Sad music like this gets missed, glad I found it \m/

  35. Dean McGee

    I inspire, so keep doing me justice 🎸☝️😊

  36. SincerelyS

    Sounds like Lynard Skynard's, "Tuesdays Gone"

  37. Holly GoHeavily

    Brendan was a regular at a record store I worked at. Nice person and I'm happy he's getting recognition.

  38. 51MontyPython

    Technically, "somedays" is not a word. ….I'm just sayin'. :P

  39. Tim Gariepy

    Thanks Jack!

  40. David Phooter

    Reminds me a little bit of “You Look Wonderful Tonight”, some “Simple Man”, and even “Iron Man” ..I LOVE IT!!!! These guys are living rock legends!!

  41. MrVisGOOD

    Always somewhere - Scorpions. Ho detto tutto.

  42. rosa garcia

    biurefor

  43. MysteryOil

    I know Jack may Groan when I ask this, but I really don't know. Is this available on vinyl?

  44. bddfc70

    Can anyone else hear TUESDAYS GONE by Skynyrd?

    Timothy Larson

    DUDE YES, thank you I was looking to see if anyone else commented. :)

  45. Barney Miller

    Wonderful song. It deserves a better video. Loved the location, but the song is beautiful. The images aren't. Just my two cents.

  46. Vanessa Sweaty

    Some songs find you right when you need them 💔

  47. Pamela

    Cincinnati show was ELECTRIC! Danka <3

  48. Nevin Speerbrecker

    Great song. The minute I saw the background and the elements I knew it was filmed at "House on the Rock, WI" creepiest place I have ever been to.

  49. Goodbye Lullaby

    Какой потрясный вокал и музыка

  50. Goodbye Lullaby

    My ringtone

  51. Goodbye Lullaby

    Мой рингтон на телефоне

  52. Jessica Hewitt

    Brendan Benson is the best part of The Raconteurs, underestimated and super talented. Listen to his solo stuff, it'll blow you away!

    Goodbye Lullaby

    I agree with you

    RedYellow Blue

    He brings so much to the table with this band, it's almost annoying how people seem to not even notice his contributions.

    Barney Miller

    He's not as exciting or "interesting" as Jack White, but he's a better song writer. Straight up. I love some of Jack's solo stuff too, but it's very same-y. Brendan understands song structure. And his lyrics are just more..... I don't know......grown up? Less vague? More relatable?

  53. Mathieu Ferault

    Every riffs find by Jack become a treasure

  54. Cristhian Espinoza

    I'm here right now. I'm not dead yet.... words to live by.

  55. Pavel Aizenberg

    20 years later they’ll say, Jack White was the greatest musician back then, but we know it right now!!!

  56. Ramon Jardel

    I've got so much to give
    I got a lot a heart

    Somedays, I just feel like crying
    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays, I just feel like crying
    Somedays, I don't feel like trying
    Somedays, I just feel like crying
    Somedays, I don't feel like trying

    Somedays
    Somedays

    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet
    I'm here right now
    I'm not dead yet

    You're welcome😘

  57. Parker Angel

    You can hear the Lynyrd Skynyrd influence (Tuesday's Gone). This is a good song.

  58. Davie Duckett

    Free bird

  59. Eat your cake and Have it too

    That place was cool many years ago. It's a one and done kind of attraction.

  60. Bugs Fletcher

    How is this not even nominated for album of the year? No wonder rock n roll is on it's way down. This is the best album I've heard in years. I'm here right now...I'm not dead yet

    Barney Miller

    Better than Black Keys, who I also like.

    Mark Hanson

    Ok boomer

    Barney Miller

    Mark Hanson I’m literally starting a classic rock cover band called OK Boomer. Know any drummers?

  61. Eric Florey

    Visited this house as a kid, it was creepy as hell. The room at the end of the video bounces like a diving board and has a window in the floor.

  62. Sean Johnson

    has a skynyrd style of phrasing.....good stuff!

  63. Hector Meneses

    Woah! I've been depressed for a few months now and I have to say that hearing this song resonated with me big time.

  64. PC Isme

    Man I hope you guys keep this going. Yall rock.

  65. KimoSabbi

    Must admit, I wasn't a fan of this when I first listened but the more and more that I listen the more I like it.

  66. MVerdoux

    Shot in The House On The Rock in Wisconsin!

  67. WhaleTourist

    Sounds like Lynard Skynard being plagarized.

  68. Nollie The Gnome

    The editor of this video deserves an award!

    dostaje ciarek na plecach od tego vibrato z intra

  80. LuneyTune72

    Sounds like a complete rip-off of "Tuesday's Gone" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  81. John Rodgers

    Is tuesday gone with the wind.?.

  82. Raúl Q.S

    02:43 sounds like Beyond - Leon Bridge

  83. Adrien Ciambarella

    This song is an instant classic . I don't get how it s not more unknown

  84. Brown Trout

    It seems as though this song was meant to be about writing songs too. Not for me ;-(P

  85. A K

    I can see this becoming an anthem of hope for millions <3

  86. Jennifer Martin

    The spelling police in me can only fixate on the fact that some days is two words, not one.

  87. Louise Calandrino

    This riff is very Lynyrd Skynyrd-ish. I luv it! Jack White is a genius... <3

  88. Atomic Louey

    Love you all💕

  89. Carla Larissa

    sinto-me abraçada!

  90. Brayden Attlesey

    Got a Tuesday’s gone by Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe.. dig it

  91. Katherine Skopik

    I know they get sick of me writing nice things about their music....but the point is that they DO make an incredible impact on my life. The good, bad, hope and despair....I could have the worst day ever and their songs just turn it all around and put a smile on my face It doesn’t matter where I’m at....they always pull through. Love the Raconteurs TMR staff, and most of all, Jack. White. thanks, guys! You make the world a much better place.

  92. For the Doggies Guitars

    Got that Tuesday's Gone vibe.
