"This Is Not My Life" as written by and Miles Zuniga....
This, this is not my life
This, this is not my life

This is not my face,
This is not my place, no it's just isn't right

This, this is not my life

You, do you remember me?
Remember, the way that it used to be.

Do you remember our car,
Do you remember our house,
Do you remember what it was like
Cause this, this is not my life

[Chorus]
My life, my life, (Now I live in the shadows)
My life, my life, (Because you are my life)
My life, my life,
My life

You're the only one, who can see, the real me
You're the only one, can't you see, can't you see


You took away my world
You took away my world

You took away my smile,
You took away my life,
You took away my reason to live

You, you took away my world
And this is not my life
And this is not my life

My life, my life, ('Cause now I live in the shadows)
My life, my life, (Because you are my life)
My life, my life, (And now it's endless night)
My life, my life, (And this is not my life)
My life, my life,
My life, my life

    General CommentI think this song is about not being sure who you are and trying to find out the true you. It's a cool song. Fastball is so under-rated.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy reacting to a breakup (or perhaps more likely, a divorce). He's not able to move on and get over it because he insists that "this is not my life", and that "I live in the shadows...Because you are my life." "This is not my life" and "You took away my world" implies that he is now living single as opposed to in a relationship or marriage. Apparently she was the pin that was holding everything together, and now his whole way of life is altered. ("Do you remember our car/house/what it was like?") He had invested a lot into this girl and now she's gone, and now it seems like all the color is gone from his world.
