Alice Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Trippin' out
Spinnin' around
I'm underground
I fell down
Yeah, I fell down

I'm freakin' out
Where am I now?
Upside down
And I can't stop it now
It can't stop me now
ooooooh

[Chorus:]
I... I'll get by
I... I'll Survive

    I got off the phone, sat down at my piano at home, wrote the song immediately; I was so inspired because I'd been designing for the movie [...] so I had all the images in my head." She played the song for Burton, who later called Lavigne to give his approval and confirm the song would be used for the film.

    She is trying something new; wandering in unknown parts. its uncomfortable,and shes freaking out. She doesnt know what will happen next. its terrifying. but she'll "survive-- I'll get by." shes unstoppable, whether she likes it or not.

    She expresses the fear that alice faces in wonderland. She tries to get out of that place and she becomes involved in events that won't change something in her. She hopes to survive and won't cry or break down in this way.

    First of all she wrote thiS for the movie so its interpreted as the point of view of alice through avril's eyes. She explains this experience of alice in wonderland. And avril shows how Alice goes from being freaked out, naive, and innocent ("i wont cry). To this totally different person at the end. That is stong, determined and hopeful. Her perserverance is shown in the chorus. =D

    Alice in Wonderland, so maybe she feels like Alice? Falling? Out of control? Confused? Something went wrong? Anyway, apperently not many people have heard this song, or its old, or you just dont like it, or you get it and don't nedd a know it all like me to explain it.
