You say you feel so down
Every time I turn around
And you say you should've been gone by now
And you, you think that everything's wrong
You ask me how to carry on
We'll make it through another day just hold on.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

I hate to see you fall down
I'll pick you up off of the ground
I've watched the weight of your world come down
And now it's your chance to move on
Change the way you've lived for so long
You find the strength you've had inside all along.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

All this pain
Take this life and make it yours.
All this hate take your heart and let it love again.
You will survive it somehow.

Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.

    This song is defiantly my favourite out of any of the three days. Grace albums even though i do love them all :) for me this song seem like its about depression more than anything else, and a person suffering from depression. The line "you've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down" suggests that the person has tried to commit suicide multiple time and failed all of these times but has now pulled themselves together and is trying to save their life. Personally, this song means a lot to me as i have tried to commit suicide and i am now trying to fix my life :)

    I think life starts now is a beautiful song and i think three days grace is an amazing band. I have all their songs and albums in cds and on itunes. I hope that they continue writing great songs! I really have no clue what this song means so i just wanted to say that...

    You will face bad times but you have to get through them to live life how it is meant to be lived.

    I feel like this song has a deeper meaniong than just a song the band wrote. To me, Life starts now means that everything you have done in the past has been erased and that you are at a new beginning.
