OneRepublic – Say (All I Need) lyrics

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

Whenever 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

    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.
    Norwegian Dude.

    Well I didn't get a love song out of it at all. At least not a romantic kind of love. What I get from it is that he knows someone who's made many mistakes trying to get what they want and in the process lost their way, but that person has finally realized that and is trying to change and become a better person and he see's that and is try to help out.
    But maybe I see the meaning as that because my sister is a recoverying addict trying really hard to change her life and the song reminds me of her.

    Do you know where your heart is? - where does your love lie. Have you lost the love you once felt so strongly. Lonely soul not letting go of the belief that there is something so intense that you've not yet experienced in this lifetime. Yet its okay because truely all we need is the air we breathe and a place rest our head. Argument is familiar, do you think you can find it better than you have it?

    What I gett from this song is the meaning of love. Lyk maybe this person has been through a lot and wants to find love badly. She's lonely and love is what she's lookin for, but she's been hurt and now believes she'll end up alone (her fate) so she's trying to change that by findnig the meanin of love and she's prettie much risking all. Either she'll find itt or she won't.
