7 'Into the Woods' Lyrics That Perfectly Describe Your Problems IRL
We all have our own sets of weird problems, and sometimes it feels like there's no way to perfectly describe them to friends, family, or random people on social media. Like with classic AIM away messages, sometimes you just have to use lyrics, and though I don't judge anyone who wants to rep some emo Fall Out Boy lines or some old-school Destiny's Child, I have a new suggestion: Into the Woods songs. OK, so they're not exactly new, but with the film adaptation out, you're probably already listening to the soundtrack on repeat — alternated with Taylor Swift's 1989, of course — and many lyrics from the fairy tale musical apply to real life issues. I'm not talking about real issues, but rather the agony of finishing binging your favorite TV show on Netflix or deciding whether to leave your house to get dinner or not. The pull of pajamas and a comfy bed is a struggle we all understand.
So next time you're sitting at your computer, trying to figure out how to tell everyone on Facebook about why you don't want to commute in six inches of snow, turn to Into the Woods. And remember that your first cup of coffee can rejuvenate you like The Witch after she chugs enchanted cow's milk.
