"Where Are You Now" as written by Martin Max and Andreas Mikael Carlsson....
Calling out your name
Your face is everywhere
I'm reaching out to you
To find that you're not there

I wake up every night
To see the state I'm in
It's like an endless fight
I never seem to win

I can't go on as long as I believe
Can't let go when I keep wondering

Where are you now, what have you found
Where is your heart, when I'm not around
Where are you now, you gotta let me know
Oh baby, so I can let you go

I can hear your voice
The ring of yesterday
It seems so close to me
But yet so far away

I should let it out
To save what's left of me
And close the doors of doubt
Revive my dignity

But, I can't go on as long as I believe (as long as I believe)
Can't let go when I keep wondering

Where are you now, what have you found
Where is your heart, when I'm not around
Tell me, where are you now, you gotta let me know
Oh baby, so I can let you go

I should let it out, it's time to let you go
Oh baby, I just wanna to know

Where are you now, what have you found
Where is your heart (where is your heart), when I'm not around (I'm not around)
Where are you now, you gotta let me know
Oh baby, so I can let you go

Where are you now (where are you now), what have you found (what have you found)
Where is your heart (where is your heart), when I'm not around (I'm not around)
Where are you now (where are you now), you gotta let me know (you gotta let me know)
Oh baby, so I can let you go

    General CommentThis song is about loving someone that doesn't love you back, and a part of you wants to let him go to 'save the dignity left on you', but still you don't wanna give up 'cause you have hopes that maybe that person will love you back someday. I love these lines:

    'But I can't go on as long as I believe
    I can't let go when I keep wondering'

    'I wake up every night to see the state I'm in
    It's like and endless fight I never seem to win'

    'I should let it out to save what's left on me
    And close the doors of doubt, revive my dignity'

    Perfect song

    General CommentI don't give a damn what other people say.. This song means a lot to me. When I heard it, my first thought was to the boy I alwasy liked, and his dad made us have to separate. So, I just love this song, and every time I hear it, I sing it to him.

    Memory"Where Are You Now?" took on a new meaning for me after my cat, Greta, died at age 20. Like many other cats before her, Greta ran away to die when we were at the beach. She acted strangely the night before, frantic to see all of us. We didn't understand something was wrong until hours later when she hadn't come back home. The animal shelter, animal control, police, and all of the neighborhood searched for her. We put flyers all over town and got a lot of false alarms. The closest we got to any kind of answer was when a coast guard family called us saying they tried to help her, but she adamantly resisted them to go into the reeds. Though we checked the reeds plenty of times, we did not even find as much as a body. After two months and tons of false alarms, we finally had to accept that she was gone.
    I find myself playing 'Where Are You Now?' when I miss her because we never got a full goodbye, or even any closure about what happened. Her body could be anywhere at this point...and it's hard to let go when you don't know what happened or how she died. It would be far easier to let her go if we knew where she laid in the reeds to rest, or if her body washed out to sea during a storm. Even now, we still check the nearby beaches looking for as much as a bone, but still nothing.

    General Commentshe is crap. manufactured pop at its very worst.she's had it all given to her on a plate coz she is "pretty".
    so many bands with real talent,who write their own song etc are busting their balls around pubs and clubs,while bimbo's like her get "fed up" with fame.
    tragic.
