Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something
Somewhere better just to have it?
Do you know where your love is?
Do you think that you lost it?
You felt it so strong, but
Nothing's turned out how you wanted

Well, bless my soul
You're a lonely soul
Cause you won't let go
Of anything you hold

Well, all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you know what your fate is?
And are you trying to shake it?
You're doing your best and
Your best look
You're praying that you make it

Well, bless my soul
You're a lonely soul
Cause you won't let go
Of anything you hold

Well, all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

I said all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Better than you had it
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Yeah, better than you had it (Better than you had it)

I said I all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

I said all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you know where the end is
Do you think you can see it?
Well, until you get there
Go on, go ahead and scream it
Just say it

    What u need in your life is actually very simple... Not about money.. Not to get rich but how to make your day is memorial day for you

    A woman broke up with him most likely on the account of another man. And the new relationship hasnt gone the way she thought so she wants him back, but he has been heartbroken and has just picked up the pieces.

    Now, when he finally has relieved all pain and started over, been reborn, she seeks the old life and its safety, but he will never forgive her...

    So she has to scream it till the end... That is not literally screaming, but the thoughts of what could have happened if they'd stay together...

    I think this song is talking about to live happily and not with lots of burden. Try to have a break from the tension you have lived in and to both experience things which you have seldom recognized before and do what you really have wanted to do so long.

    The life you sketched for yourself and the people in it left you damaged. No matter the reason you took it for granted but are finally starting to see light instead of darkness but you have to learn to move on as you can't make a future living in the past, to me its the fight that you matter without others telling it to you be important to you. And after the damage the love you felt for a girl a family you feel in the blank that left you broken will you ever find it again or it has it passed you by,did you miss your window for love in your life. Fight for what you believe in and.

    I think the meaning of this song is about someone who has things that never go his/her way, and that he/she just needs a break from it all. It's about a friend being there for someone going through a rough time who just needs someone to talk to and to ask for compassion and relief.
