Lost Reflections
A place for me to ramble about stuff and all the musicians I love. If you want to look for it, I've got some stories I wrote buried in here.
Too Much
Link to the song "Too Much" - Too Much - Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick's original version of the song - (Don't get me wrong, I love "Too Much", but the song is so sad sounding, yet at the same time, they lyrics aren't really sad. So, I decided to make my own version, making the lyrics a bit sadder - more like a song one would listen to if someone close to them passed away) So, yeah, Cheap Trick's original song, "Too Much" :

Don't wanna see you again
You're takin' a little too much
Maybe it's my fault - OK
You've taken away too much
Swimmin' in sorrow all day
Well, fakin' it doesn't do much
Maybe you've fallen from grace
It's takin' a little too much
I couldn't be you, my friend
You're makin' a lie of our love
My love
Come on, now
You're takin' a little too much, too much

I-I swear, you had it all
Diamonds and pearls
In time, you've taken all mine

I couldn't be you, my friend
You've taken a little too much
Don't wanna hold you again
And fall for the tricks in your touch
No one can charm like you can
You're makin' a lie of our love
My love
Come on, come on
You're takin' a little too much, too much

You'll be there without a care
I'll go alone
I'll fall into life all over again
In time I will find a girl
Who knows just how to be kind
Some-days, the power's so bright - my love
I can't find no easy way out

~~~~*Rick Nielsen's epic guitar solo*~~~~

I-I swear, a light, a voice
Tells me to stop
Something inside screamed out
Get my life back again

Don't wanna see you, my friend
You've taken a little too much
Maybe it's my fault - OK
You've taken away too much
I couldn't be you, my friend
'Cause none of your riches mean much
I couldn't stand to pretend
You're makin' a lie of our love
My love
Come on, come on
You're takin' a little too much, too much

And now, my version of the song. I tried my best to keep the cadence the same as the original song, while I even kept a few of the lines almost entirely intact.
I dedicate this to my Uncle, Grandma, and Great-Grandma up in Heaven. So, this one's for anyone missing someone in their life.


I wanna see you again
It's taken a little too much
Could it be my fault? - Maybe
It's taken away too much
I'm swimmin' in sorrow all day
And fakin' it doesn't do much
Maybe you'll come back to me
You've taken a little too much
I couldn't be you, my friend
You've taken a lot of my life
With you
Come on, now
It's taking a little too much, too much

I-I swear, I had it all
When you were here
In time, it's all gone away

I couldn't be you, my friend
This has taken a little too much
I wanna hold you again
Just once more to feel your touch
I don't know if I can go on
You've taken a lot of my life
With you
Come on, Come on
It's taking a little too much, too much

I know you'll be here with me
In my heart
I'll fall into life all over again
In time, I'll find some way
To make it all okay
Sometimes, the power's so bright - your life
I can't find no easy way out

~~~~*Rick Nielsen' epic guitar solo*~~~~

I-I swear, a light, your voice
Calls out to me
Something inside me screams out
Get my life back again

I wanna see you again
It's takin' a little too much
Could it be my fault? - Maybe
It's taken away too much
I couldn't be you, my friend
Things didn't bother you much
I couldn't stand to pretend
You've taken a lot of my life
With you
Come on, come on
You've taken a little too much with you
