Achin’ to be Understood - Paul Westerberg

With my friends, I always felt a little out of place. I like sports and stuff, but I never quite. … [trails off] Everybody I knew liked to go swimming and fishing and hunting and to football games. I didn’t fit that. I never remember feeling truly comfortable with any of my friends. There was stuff I wanted to tell them that they would laugh at when I tried to explain it. They’d say, ‘Guys don’t talk that way.’ And I was afraid of girls, which is another thing guys aren’t supposed to talk about. So I wrote songs instead.
