First: blob, first you say that Jason isn't that great, and now he's one of your favorites? Second: I wake up to this song. Every morning. And it was only recently I realized the first thing I hear every morning is "Wake up, everyone. How can you sleep at a time like this unless the dreamer is the real you?" Third: This song for me is about making the most out of your life and taking every chance you can to make it special. =D

First off: missmindfreak2010, nocemisions: I feel so glad that there are other people like me in that regard. Freshman year was so hard for me too. And this song- well, it reaaally helped. Anyways. I feel like the song tells us that the world is a hard place to be in. It's filled with really horrible events, and sometimes we just don't feel like we belong. It's during these times when you just want to end it all and stop feeling the pain. But we can't go back, we can't fix things. We have to accept how life is. And when we have trouble doing that, there are people who will be there for us and help us through it. We might want to kill ourselves, but it's never too late to look at things through a better viewpoint.

So agreed, to both of you. In the beginning of their relationship, everything was nearly perfect. But you know how time can heal and ruin everything. He never meant to stop caring, but somewhere along the lines of time, he did. The sad thing is that this exact same thing has happened to me. Whenever I hear this song, I still think of my ex best friend and how he just stopped caring about me, despite how close we had become.

Foo Fighters are still a really great band. They play three hour long shows, and Dave screams so loud he loses his voice. Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace was an amazing album as well. They were awesome when they formed a while back, too, but that doesn't mean they aren't really cool now. And in regards to this song: he's talking about how he doesn't want to- and won't let himself be- used.

Actually, when you stop to think about, nocemisions has a point. Look: "I know when it's getting rough/ All the times we spend/ Trying to make/ This love something better than/ Just making up again" and "It's not like you to turn away/ All the bullshit I can't take/ Just when I think I can walk away" are not "happy" lyrics. Obviously the relationship isn't perfect. Times are hard, they fight all the time, and when the think they're going to break things off. Well. The s* keeps them coming.

As with most Mraz songs, you can't really tell what he means. But when I start to think why I like it, I sort of get something. I like it because I feel there is so many things that I need to do and also, people keep telling me to do things differently, saying I can be so much more. I just want them to shut up about my life and let me do what I want to do.

A couple years ago, one of my best friends, when we were joking around with each other while trying to find a good song to use on our science project, had me close my eyes. He slipped his headphones over my ears and played this song for me. I, of course, was too stupid to realize that he was serious about it and *that* was why he had slowed things down a little before presenting me with the song. But whatever. The song still reminds me of him, even though we aren't close anymore.

The most meaningful part (for me, anyways) is when she says, "I wonder, how am I supposed to feel when you're not here. 'Cause I burned every bridge I ever built when you were here. I still try holding onto silly things, I never learn. Oh why? All the possibilities. I'm sure you've heard." Do I even need to explain myself on that? But really, every part of the song is awesome. After being hurt by so many people because I let my heart get the best of me, I can't get enough of the song.

It's such a sweet slow song. Reminds me so much (as most songs I love do) of my two best friends. While I use this song as a cutesy song with my very best friend (we only really have each other to fall back on when things go wrong, so it suits), I see this kind of pain, like he could be telling some girl who is breaking up with him all of that. But see, that's the beauty of music. It can be interpreted and used in many different ways.

He made a mistake, gave up some girl, and now wants her back in his life. She won't tell him yet (would you?) and so he's waiting for his answer. For him, this isn't just about having her back, but having the love back in his life to help him. Don't we all want love to carry us through all of the moment's we'd kindly undo? Yes. Admit it. So really, anybody can relate at least a *liiitle* to this song.

Meaning
Somebody who seemed like they used to be there for him, helping him, now isn't. She yells at him, tells him he isn't good enough, etc. All of the pain that he's been in, well, it's her fault. And nothing has changed from this image, and nothing will. My favorite part is "though we stumble, we don't have to fall," because it embodies the truth in how we all make mistakes, but we don't have to go down because of them. This person that the song is about needs to recognize this.

Whenever I'm feeling a little low, I listen to this song and realize that the hardships I'm experiencing are only going to make the happy times all the better, and that no matter what happens, life really is a beautiful thing. Also, I'm reminded of Nikki Sixx's journey with drugs- and how basically being dead, among other trials in his life, really opened him up to see how wonderful the gift of life is. This fills me with even more hope. Congrats, boys.

I'll be honest. It wasn't until I saw the music vid on Fuse- in which Steven (I believe it was him hosting the countdown) told everybody that the band was Christian- that I noticed a Godly influence. The best thing about Christian bands like Flyleaf is how their music isn't solely one thing. It means a lot to Christians and themselves, but to people who aren't religious, it can be just as beautiful and expressive.

Meaning
I like the line from which the title comes from, "I know it's your soul, but could you bottle it up?" I'm not sure if she was trying to do this (as to be honest, I don't understand her very well), but to me at least, I hear this song and think, "There are plenty other girls who've been asked to bottle up their love for somebody else, but they just can't do it... and wind up like me...". The whole song feels this way (in my opinion)- like we're asked to bottle up our emotions, but for us, giving love is the only way we can feel it. Just my thoughts.

Meaning
This is really a beautiful song. I don't care that the first time I heard it was on Curious George. It reminds me so much of Evan [and old best friend]. Because without him I felt really broken, and whenever I felt so horrible. Well. I loved having him by my side. And the whole reason I don't have him anymore was my fault. I never realized how much he did for me or how much I was missing once he was gone. To me, this songs is a reminder of that situation and I know that with the song, I'm not going to make the same mistakes.

Meaning
While I see how one can see God in the song, I don't really believe that's all it's about. It can be a best friend or significant other trying to "fix you" as well. Example: I feel this way about my best friend ever. Whenever anything bad happens to him, I always try to help him sort it out and make him feel better, to "fix" him, so to speak.

Meaning
This song is definitely among my all time favorites. Like Izu said, it is about more than suicide. He talks a lot about self-mutilation, like cutting and such, and how it's starting to feel like it's not enough. It's probably not the best song in means of getting people to stop self-destructive behavior [it idealizes suicide, etc], but when you feel so horrible, you love this song anyways, possibly because it tells you that it's okay to feel shitty.

Meaning
This song helped me grow recently. One of my best friends decided that it would be best for both of us if we didn't talk for a while, and it completely broke me down. When I heard this song after that conversation, I understood what he was really doing. It was a period of my life that was so. Over dramatic, with a lot of problems. All throughout our friendship, he was trying to help me out of that position, but I wouldn't ever let him. I realized how much all my suffering hurt him and why he gave up, and now the situation makes so much more sense.

Whenever I hear this song, I cry a little. One of my best friends [who I also happened to be in love with for a long time] considers this to be his and his girlfriend's "song", as it actually fits them absolutely perfectly. While it has that sad connection, I also cry out of joy, not just for Evan and his girlfriend, but because I know have somebody to relate this song with. He's possibly my very best friend, ever, and I love him to death. Even though we don't have anything romantic going on, we both rescued each other, per se, and made each other genuinely happy.

This girl has an abusive past that she doesn't know how to get past. She doesn't care enough to do anything and is trying things just to see if they might work. She's "bound to lose" in all that she does because of what happened. If the guy ever met the man who did this to her, he would be in such a state of shock and would most likely babble out his anger.
