Linkin Park – Numb

“Every step that I take is another mistake to you”

You’ll probably know this song already, but it’s still one of our favourites. Numb is from Linkin Park’s second album and is one of their most popular songs with more than 170 million views on YouTube and more than 49 million ‘views’ on Spotify. Numb is about someone who forgets who he is. This comes because other people put a lot of pressure on him, but the person can’t reach the expectations.

Album: Meteora

Year: 2003

Lyrics

I’m tired of being what you want me to be

Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface

I don’t know what you’re expecting of me

Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes

(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

Every step that I take is another mistake to you

(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

 

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there

Become so tired, so much more aware

I’m becoming this, all I want to do

Is be more like me and be less like you

 

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me,

Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control?

‘Cause everything that you thought I would be

Has fallen apart right in front of you.

(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

Every step that I take is another mistake to you.

(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

And every second I waste is more than I can take.

 

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there,

Become so tired, so much more aware

I’m becoming this, all I want to do

Is be more like me and be less like you.

 

And I know

I may end up failing too.

But I know

You were just like me with someone disappointed in you.

 

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there,

Become so tired, so much more aware.

I’m becoming this, all I want to do

Is be more like me and be less like you.

 

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there.

(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there.

(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)

Opinion Justin

Numb was the first song which I’ve found from Linkin Park. It’s still one of my favourite songs. The couplets are calm and the refrain is active. The lyrics are very good as well.

Opinion Timothy

This is one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. First we have the calm start of the song and after that comes the refrain with a lot of power and emotions. I really love this awesome song.

Numb comes in 1st place out of seven in the ranking at the moment.
