"My Precious" as written by and Jason Wade....
Can't hold you down
Can I be you
There's nothing I can do
A slave to your hands

Climb up above
Your precious time
Don't worry your time
Don't hurry your mind

Where did you go?
Where did you hide?
All I can do
Is watch you pass by

Climb up above
Your precious time
Don't worry your time
Don't hurry your mind

Every time I try to take it back
I know I don't wanna live like that
I'll wait for tomorrow
Too tired to go the other way
Too late to wait another day
I'm going on

Climb up above
Your precious time
Don't worry your time
Don't hurry your mind

Climb up above
Your precious time
Don't worry your time
Don't hurry your mind

    General CommentI know this is probably not what it was written about, but whenever I listen to this I have visions of Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings attempting to take the Ring to Mordor (the ring which Gollum often refers to as "my precious"). The ambience of the music feels like it paints a picture of the desolate wastes Frodo has to cross along his journey; and certain lines, like "Too tired to go the other way/ Too late to wait another day/ I'm going on," and the climbing references, could portray the determination he has to get there, despite the difficulty. The overall eerie and sort of vague feeling of the song also makes me think of how Frodo probably feels as the ring's dark power is affecting him--like he is a slave to its often overwhelming influence, and that he feels isolated from those around him ("Where did you go? / Where did you hide? / All I can do is watch you pass by").

    Whatever this song is actually about, though, I love it :) Lifehouse does not ever disappoint.

    General CommentThe meaning is really unclear in this song, which adds to its appeal. It sounds beautiful, Jason is so talented, I love listening to his voice! This is a great song.

    General CommentThis song is about time. If you listen to each lyric it refers to time in some form or another. i.e. "There's nothing I can do, a slave to your hands." Once again refering to the hands on a clock, and the fact that we cannot do anything to stop it.
