"Am I Ever Gonna Find Out" as written by Ron John Aniello and Jason Wade....
Silence is golden
But I think it's gonna kill me now
Everything I've seen
Never seems to fill me now
No one told me that the world could fall through, yeahd

In between this
Am I gonna find a way
To defeat this
Living inside yesterday
I'm alive
I think it's time to live like I am
Am I ever gonna find it
Am I ever gonna find it
Am I ever gonna find out

Patience can wait for now
I think I've waited for too long
You always gave a choice
And the right to be wrong
All my life has been slipping through your hands, yeah

In between this
Am I gonna find a way
To defeat this
Living inside yesterday
I'm alive
I think it's time to live like I am
Am I ever gonna find it
Am I ever gonna find it
Am I ever gonna find out

    General Commenti was going to wait untill the new album came out, but i cheated and downloaded this song, and a few others. whoops i cheated. i am really looking for ward to going out on the 17th and buying the new album. the boys of Lifehouse faced a large challenge when they attempted to follow up No Name Face, judging by a few songs, they did just fine

    General CommentI love this song. It's really catchy and the chorus is awesome. From what I can understand (interpertations are not my forte) this song seems to be about realizing that there's more to life than materialism (evidenced in the line "Everything I've seen never seems to fill me now"), like relationships and spirituality.

    =P Well, that's my crappy interpertation.

    General Commentits actually, "patience can wait for now/ i think ive waited for too long/ you always gave a choice/ and the right to be wrong

    i love this song

    I think is kinda a bit about fakeness
    " im alive i think its time to live like i am , am i ever gonna find it, am i ever gonna find out"

    "all my life has been slipping through your hands yeah"
    friends deciding what to do and how they should dress etc.

    its like following a crowd but deciding that you want to be an individual and find out what its like on your own, being your own person, hence the chorus.

    General Comment"Silence is golden, but I think it's gonna kill me" is one of the best lyrics I have ever heard. Best song on the album.

    General CommentI interpreted it differently, to match the situation I was going through at the time. It just reminds me of putting my heart out there, waiting for a reaction. Like, just let me know what it's going to be, so we can either take things further or I can move on in my life.

    General Commenti think it's about being young and wondering what your life has in store for you and even though he's been patient, it's time for him to figure out where he's headed with his life.

    General CommentI think itas aboutlife in general.. "no one told me that the world could fall through " yeah shit happens all the time and you may not be prepared but u have to get over it and go on "in between this am I gonna find a way
    to defeat this living inside yesterday
    I'm alive I think it's time to live" and hes askin himself if someday hes gonna get over it and stop living on yesterday .. thats just my opinion but its a beautiful song.. great lyrics

    General CommentMy interpretation of the song is a person going through a struggle.

    It seems like someone has been controlling his life, and he finally realizes this and knows that he has to take control of his life again, but he seems to be confused with it all.

    It may be different than what you guys see it as, but I've always pictured a struggle with this song.

    General CommentSounds like someone has left him, hence the silence. "Silence is golden, but I think it's going to kill me now."

    Inbetween the struggle of trying to get over it, will he find a way if he keeps thinking about the past.
    "In between this am I gonna find a way
    to defeat this, living inside yesterday."

    "I'm alive, I think it's time to live like I am."
    Probably pretty self-explanatory. He hasn't been living like he's alive, but he is, so he needs to start living life again.

    In general, the first verse seems to be how everything was right, and then the bottom fell out. The second verse is him realizing he's waited too long to get over it.
