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

    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.

    to me this song is like he's letting go of someone/something that he loved that he couldn't have, so he's letting go of that and starting over with someone new that he's falling in love with. maybe. either that or he's letting go of all fears of love and committment, just to fall in 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.

    I think this song is about him finding God. "Im desparate for changing, Starving for truth." and "Im falling more in love with you, Im letting go, all ive held on to..."
