"Larger Than Life" as written by Martin Max, Kristian Carl Marcus Lundin and Brian Thomas Littrell....
I may run and hide
When you're screamin' my name, alright
But let me tell you now
There are prices to fame, alright
All of our time spent in flashes of light

All you people can't you see, can't you see
How your love's affecting our reality
Every time we're down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

Looking at the crowd
And I see your body sway, c'mon
Wishin' I could thank you in a different way, c'mon
'Cause all of your time spent keeps us alive

All you people can't you see, can't you see
How your love's affecting our reality
Every time we're down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

All of your time spent keeps us alive

All you people can't you see, can't you see
How your love's affecting our reality
Every time we're down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

Yeah, every time we're down
Yeah, you can make it right
Yeah, and that's what makes you larger than life

All you people can't you see, can't you see
How your love's affecting our reality
Every time we're down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger
That makes you larger
That makes you larger than life

    General CommentOk, spliphstar, sure thing. Keep beliving and maybe it'll come true (like that'll ever happen). Anyways, I think this song is a great dance song and I also think it's great that the Boys did a song about the fans.

    General Commentit is true. i don't have to believe it. they did a song about the fans to keep you suckers buying records. lou perlman is a marketing genius. and one more thing--i don't know how any hardcore fan of pop music-boy bands, specifically, can think they are true artists. HELLO-there was a show on ABC that shows how they are chosen, trained, dressed, etc. if anyone out there can tell me one boy band where five guys got together and said, "hey, let's all dress a like and sing alike and dance alike and really be in it for the music" without the influence of parents/managers/talent scouts,or any outside influences, i will never say another bad thing about boy band again. in fact, i'll even buy one of there cd's.

    General CommentI agree with lqfuad. Everyone who makes fun of the BSB just didn't grow up with them. I love thinking about them and remembering all the slumber parties I used to have where we stayed up all night listening to the BSB! Fun times! And also, who thinks emo is real music? Another thing to think about is are the emo groups you listen to still around? Hmm..let's think? NO! Are the BSB still around even though they "suck"? OMG! YEAH!! So obviously someone likes them! I love the BSB and always will!

    General CommentWhat next? Are they gonna claim they're "bigger than Jesus"?

    I agree with spliph.. people are so dense that they can put on tv shows about how they "build" pop stars and boy bands, and then they never notice that their favorite groups are just a tool of the media.
    By the way, I think boy bands and such learned to clean their recorded cd for live preformances.. just in case. They don't want to end up like milli vanilli. ;)

    General Commenti'd never paid attention to the lyrics and noticed that its about the fans but when i read it its obvious. i have so many memories of 7th grade dances when i hear this song. my friend and i were singing it the other night just for kicks. good to reminisce. have no idea how to spell that...

    General CommentI'm not sure whether I like this song or not. It is a very catchy song and its alright to listen to. But on some levels, its annoying. If I have to rate it: 5/10. And you people who hate them? If you don't like them, why even bother coming to read their lyrics, and post hateful comments about them? Why not post comments on the bands you DO like?

    General CommentThis songs is basically explaining that theres a price to pay for being famous and a lot of times it can be a real downer, but when you know your fans are there and cheering you on, for some reason, the day just seems brighter. So this is basically a praise song to fans to say, thanks, we appreciate you...

    among other things.

    General CommentOMG! Backstreet Boys SUCK ASS! I cant believe I ever used to listen to them now. Now Im into hardcore and emo and good, REAL music. BB is just a bunch of lip singers like Ashlee Simpson and Jessica Simpson. GO SUCK DICK POP STARS! YOU ARENT REAL!
