"Brace Yourself" as written by Jay Clifford and Howie Day....
So you think
You can hold the world up by a string
With all that you have
And I will hold every part of you if I could

And I'm oh
And I'm on again
Brace yourself
With all that you have
And oh, I'm in love again
Brace yourself
Now

So you feel everything and everything should be
All that you wanted
Stay with me
I'm in no condition to be
Alone

And I'm oh
And I'm on again
Brace yourself
And all that you have
And oh, I'm in love again
Brace yourself
Yeah

On and on
So it's just your false alarm
Maybe I'll hold my breathe
And you'll be gone
All that you have... yeah...
All that you wanted...

Love
I'm in love again
Brace yourself with all that you have
Oh I'm in love again
Brace yourself, yeah
Brace yourself, yeah
Brace yourself with all that you have
Yeah...

All that you wanted, oh

    General Commentahhhh such a good song! i was at the first concert he ever played it live (8-22-02 Boston) such a good show. everyone was wondering when he was playing what it was, whether it was a cover or something, and then he explained how it was a new one. very very cool song.

    General Commentmy guess is it's about a past lover, or someone with whom he has a very on-off relationship. and now he's in love with her again. i love the bit about the false alarm, it's like he's saying maybe i'm not really in love this time, and i just need to hold my breathe and think this through.

    General CommentThe girl that hes talking abotu seems to be more concerned abtou everyone/thing else, and all he wants to be is cared for by her. But the bridge says that maybe hes not inlove after all, and its just a false alarm... bassically loving someone and the feelings that come with that first realization that there coudl be something there....

    General Commenthis world is in disarray
    he's bracing himself to prepare for the collision he knows is coming
    she's the cause of it all, and he recognizes everything falling apart, saying he would hold her together if he could
    But he's shouting out to brace himself because thats what he needs to do to get by
    THeir love was and is something great
    But he has to brace himself
