I found god
On the corner of first and Amistad
Where the west was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I Said where you been, he said ask anything
Where were you?
When everything was falling apart
All my days were spent by the telephone
It never rang
And all I needed was a call
That never came
To the corner of first and Amistad

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Whyd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

In the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one whos ever known
Who I am, who Im not, who I want to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Whyd you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

Early morning, City breaks
Ive been calling for years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never send me no letters
You got some kind of nerve, taking all I want

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Where were you where were you?

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Whyd you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me
why'd you have to wait
to find me, to find me

    "Its about the disappointment, the heart ache, the let down that comes with life. Sometimes you're let down, sometimes you're the one who lets someone else down. It gets hard to know who you can trust, who you can count on. This song came out of a tough time, and I'm still right in the thick of it. There's some difficult circumstances my family and friends have been going through over the past year or so and can be overwhelming. It wears on me. It demands so much of my faith to keep believing, keep hoping in the unseen. Sometimes the tunnel has a light at the end, but usually they just look black as night. This song is about that feeling, and the hope that I still have, buried deep in my chest." Isaac Slade, the lead singer said this!

    i think the girl he loves dies, and this song is about questioning your faith. in the beginning he says he found God ..he asked him where he was and God asked him the same ..he says "Where were you? When everything was falling apart. All my days were spent by the telephone. It never rang. And all I needed was a call. That never came. To the corner of first and Amistad" i think the corner of 1st and amistad was where the girl died .. he's been waiting for God to answer but God never came. he was also waiting for God to make things better ..he says "Early morning, City breaks. Ive been calling for years and years and years and years. And you never left me no messages. You never send me no letters. You got some kind of nerve, taking all I want" he was waiting on an explanation frm God but he neva came. "taking all i want" tht was the girl that died. in the end tho, God finds him "Lost and insecure ..you found me. lying on the floor ..why'd you have to wait ..where were you ..just a little late " thts when he wus talking to God ..he's saying God was late b/c the girl dies ..but in the end ..he gets his faith back ..

    i can really relate to this song. i've been going thru hell over these past couple of months and some 1 i loved just died. this song makes me cry everytime i hear it b/c it hits sooo close to home .. esp. when he says "Ive been calling for years and years and years and years.And you never left me no messages.You never sent me no letters. You've got some kind of nerve, taking all I want"

    I think this song talks about asking God back into your life. It may seem weird 'cuz it talks about a girl and a-lot of other issues in their lies, but they were just stating some of their problems.

    The fray RULES!
