"Favorite Song" as written by and John Charles/desveaux Hampson....
What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Would you open up your hand
Or hold on tight?
What if everything was wrong
And no one knew your favorite song
There is no one left to sing along
With you tonight
Everything is alright
I will see you tonight
Everything you want
Is in your hands
And I can't help you decide
The battles you fight inside
And what hurts you
You dont understand
And it feels like there is nothing right
And its all the same to you anyways
What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Would you open up your hand
Or hold on tight?
What if everything was wrong
And no one knew your favorite song
There is no one left to sing along
With you tonight
The better place you wished for
Is just outside your front door
Still it never seemed so far away
Summer gave no reward
Until this day was dreamed for
Wait to feel the sunlight
On your face
And it feels like there is nothing right
And its all the same to you anyway
What if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Would you open up your hand
Or hold on tight?
What if everything was wrong
And no one knew your favorite song
There is no one left to sing along
With you tonight
You never know what to say
So you run in your hideaway
I see the shadow falling in the summer sun
So you never know what to say
It doesn't matter anyway
You'll heal inside
You'll feel this time
And if everything you had
Was like a castle made of sand
Why don't you open up your heart
And hold on tight
And if everything was wrong
I would sing your favorite song
And you would have to sing along
With me tonight
Sing along with me tonight
Sing along with me tonight
What if everything was wrong
And no one knew your favorite song

    General CommentThis song is so great… “What if everything you had was like a castle made of sand? Would you open up your hand or hold on tight?” If you think about it, this line is the absolute greatest. When you go to a beach, you might want to try this out: holding onto sand too tight forces it out of the tiny cracks between your fingers, and opening up your hand while you have sand in it makes the sand fall out. Either way you lose the sand. So if everything you had were to be made up of sand, wouldn’t it all be lost eventually? Haven’t all castles that have been made, crumbled. Does anything last forever?

    “There's no one left to sing along with you tonight.” When everything crumbles, when everything ends, who will still be there for you? Who will help you remember what went right after everything’s gone wrong?

    “Everything is alright, I will see you tonight. Everything you want is in your hands.” A this point, the singer is basically saying that he will help you remember the goodness in the world when it seems that it has vanished. That he’ll find you and make you realize that everything you’ve always wanted, is what you always had.

    “And I can't help you decide the battles you fight inside. And what hurts you, you don't understand.” Now the singer is saying that no matter what happens, you have to realize that you make your own decisions. When things don’t go how you planned or how you wanted them to, it confuses you because pain isn’t something you want to feel. Things ending in pain isn’t how it was planned.

    “And it feels like there's nothing right and it’s all the same to you anyway.” This line really shows you that even though things seem as though they aren’t right, it’s as right as they can be. Because no matter what, you will always feel the way you feel inside, and no matter what good comes in the world, you’re always going to feel the same.

    “And that place you wish for is just outside your front door. Still, it never seemed so far away.” Now it goes back to the point that everything you ever wanted, is what you’ve always had. And it’s taken losing that [thing that you never knew you always wanted] to realize that it was what you wanted from the start.

    And at the end of the song, the whole light/dark comparison I find pretty strong. How you wait for the sun [light] to come and make things better, but how even when the sun is out, all you let people see is your shadow [dark].
