Lifehouse – Hanging By A Moment lyrics

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after you
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I'm lacking
Completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation
You take all of me now...

I'm falling even more in love with you
I'm Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after you...

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment (here with you)
Hanging by a moment (here with you)
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you

    Love this song, and just Lifehouse period! I think this song is about a guy who's found God, finally, and falling in love with him, not a girl. (Desperate for changing, starving for truth) Maybe "I'm closer to where I started, chasing after you" is meaning that he drifted away from God and is coming back to Him, giving Jesus everything freely and not sure of what will happen because of it, waiting for God to reveal his plan to him!

    This song is a conversation with God. Think prayer/modern day Psalm. He is a Christ follower. He already knows that Christ is the truth, life and the way, but he's struggling with something and giving this hurt/pain/struggle to over to God - He is not talking about "religion! Christianity is NOT religion! It is the polar opposite! Christianity does not = "do more, try harder, be better". Following Christ is saying "i accept this gift of grace. Thank you for loving unconditionally. I know I'm going to screw up and yet you will never let go. Agape love."
    Example: "Forgetting all I'm lacking, Completely incomplete, I'll take your invitation, You take all of me now.

    Most of know what it means to do the right thing yet, often times we don't. And the things we truly do not want to do, we end up doing.(harmful habits, holding on to anger, addictions, unforgiving, etc) . The good news is that as Christ followers, God's Got Me no matter what the situation is, good, bad, ugly,

    This is a song about Maicie. A girl that he has been talking to and he is giving up everything that he has held onto even though he has only had one moment with her. He is willing to admit that he is incomplete and wanting to be with her without knowing completely what he is diving into. This song is straight from the heart and that's why I feel that it is about how this one girl gave him a moment to see how incomplete his live is without her, and nothing else in the world can change his mind about Maicie.

    I guess it's about a guy who finally realizes that he has outgrown his emotions for a former love of his life because a new one unexpectedly turned his heart 360 degrees. He remains uncertain though of how things will turn out but he is hopeful for a positive outcome. He probably felt dejection before. Now, he'll pursue happiness no matter what it takes. This time, with his new found love.

    It says that he's on the edge of something. Looking for the truth but even if he's hanging, he's still holding on even though it causes him to let go. Thou the situation is not that quite good he fell in love more with the girl, so there's no reason for him to be afraid cause as he said there's nothing else to lose as long as he has her.
