"Hanging By A Moment" as written by and Jason Wade....
I'm desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm Closer to where I Started
Chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I'm lacking
Completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation
You take all of me

Now I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm livin' for the only thing I know
I'm running here and I'm not quite sure
Where to go?
And down I know I'd like to be in tune
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing left to fly
There is nothing in the world that can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

I'm desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer where I Started
I'm Chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm livin' for the only thing I know
I'm running here and I'm not quite sure
Where to go?
And down I know I'd like to be in tune
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you

    General Commentthe fighting in here makes me sad. ):
    in response to what wolfwood said: being in love with something is completely different than wanting to have sex with them. it's rather immature to think those things go hand in hand...

    and this song should be up to the listener to interpret. it doesn't matter if something believes its about faith or about a significant other. you guys are all being frustrating. ): it's what the song means to you, not to everyone. each person is different. and if someone has a different view, accept it, don't bash it!

    we all agree this song is about a relationship, whether it's god or your significant other. it's still a relationship with someone who means so much to you and has changed you a lot.

    Song Meaning"Their biggest hit, "Hanging By a Moment," was written by Wade for his wife, Braeden, when he was just 19. Wade said the guitar-driven sound of the song was inspired by Pearl Jam and other grunge rock acts from his hometown of Seattle."

    General CommentI agree. This song is about God. Anybody who has ever "starved for truth" & chased after God would know this.....

    General Commentwhy do people like you feel the right to rip up everyone else's beliefs? what is it to you if I or anyone else believes in God. Faith is an inherent characteristic of humanity.

    General CommentApparently all Lifehouse songs are about god. I know they're a christian band but when I go to see what ppl posted about them everyone argues about whether they're about god or not. Lifehouse have non religious songs, too, lol.

    General CommentOkeedokee, sExY mAmA and melancholy, if you're still with us, please think about what you're saying. I'm an atheist, too, and proud of it, even. The reason I'm proud of it is because I was not raised atheist, but came to it after years of religious experiments failed. I came to a decision about my life on my own and I am at peace with it. These people have come to religious decisions for themselves that they're at peace with. Maybe they need their beliefs to support them, maybe they don't. Either way, it's no business of ours to tell them what to believe anymore than it's business of theirs to tell us what to believe. So, in summary, please fuck off, if for no other reason than that doing this makes all atheists look like assholes.

    General CommentThis was OUR song, but now hes my ex. It still means the same to me though.I loved him soo much and still do. The lyrics describe the feeling so perfectly. There is no other emotion that could compare to being in love. Just being with that one person makes life feel like your haning by a moment .A moment that you never want to end.

    General Commenti disagree with honestyormystery, wether or not this song is about God. I think you *can* find truth in a relationship with a guy/girl. love is the greatest truth of all. it's what God is all about.
