The Fray – You Found Me lyrics

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 I'm 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
I've 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 feel that this song is about a man who struggles with many things in life, especially losing a loved one. In this song I thinks it's a girlfriend or his mother. No one would know him better than his mother. Hes asking god for answers. I feel that God was there waiting to take this woman home to heaven and that's where he finds him. He's asking where he was and why he never answered. But as Garth Brookes said, "Some of God greatest gifts are unanswered prays" That woman was probably struggling in life and God ended the struggle. We never understand why people have to die and leave us, but the Kingdom is far greater than this place! I think that this song goes hand and hand with 'How to save a life". I feel for the guy. Something terrible must have happened to him. He gets it off his chest through his songs. And powerful songs they are! Do you Feel me?!?

    I think that he is talking about how the girl he had he lost and she was his world much like god would be what you belive in she was what he belived in and finding her was like god had sent him a message. But it was to bad he found him/her to late because he had given up hope. Or at least he thought because hope can always be resorted.

    Try reading the Book of Job in the Old Testament. Even though we must suffer pain and death on this earth God is with us always. We are angry with God for letting war and other human suffering happen to us. Like the caterpillar who must force their out of the cocoon we to are born into pain through birth. It is only through living life with love for others that we find God in ourselves.

    I think it was a man who had no one in his life to love him, or at least all those who did left him, and so he went and tried to kill himself on the corner of frist and amistad and then someone came by, "smoking [their] last cigarette" and when the man speaks, he thinks he's god because he's dying, and then he realives why he was trying to kill himself, and then he dies.
    That's what I think.
