Well you used to be somebody and now you're someone else
Took apart his own life, left it on the shelf
Sick of being someone he did not admire
Took apart his old things, set them all on fire

He's gonna change, gonna change his ways
Gonna change, gonna change his ways

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

Left his house at midnight, resolute and young
In search of something better than the person he'd become
Threw his bags onto the back of his run down 80's car
Headed out to God knows where, the distance is too far

He's gonna change, gonna change his ways
Gonna change, gonna change his ways

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

Your life is your life, you gotta live like it's your life
Your life is your life, you gotta live like it's your life
Your life is your life, you gotta live like it's your life
Your life is your life, you gotta live like it's your life

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

And it feels like his new life can start
And it feels like heaven

    In my humble opinion, your life will not completely take its true form, until you own it! You create your existence...

    This song gives an exilerating feeling of what it would be like to leave the confines of our consumer led and bigoted society x

    I think this song is simply about someone who is burning for a new life, new people, new places. I think we all can relate to this song. I'm sure we've all had moments in ours lives where we just want to run away and leave it all behind, in search to be a better person. The man in the song actually made that dream come true. For now, it feels like heaven. But who knows how it will feel one year from now? Beautiful

    The perfect song just before 2012 starts. But this meaning is too short to post so i type some nonsense behind it. Is this enough?

    I think it is about the story of Christopher McCandless. He is the man in the book and movie Into the Wild. It really seems like this is his story
