"Hang On" as written by and Dale William Stewart Shaun M. Welgemoed....
Well now I find myself
Wish I was someone else
My hands are stained with love
Wish I could take it away

I hid behind the shell
In time the pain will melt
My heart is stained with love
Wish I could fake it

I gave my life away
There's nothing left to say
I gave my life away
You take it in your way

You take it in your way

My selfish enemy
Still has the best of me
Empty and feeling numb
Wish I could take it away

I can't control the need
Too weak to not concede
Wish I was deaf and dumb
Wish I could fake it

I gave my life away
There's nothing left to say
I gave my life away
You take it in your way

I gave my life away
There's nothing left to say
I gave my life away
You take it in your way

I can't pretend we're the same
I can't pretend we're the same
I can't pretend we're the same

Well now I find myself
Wish I was someone else
My hands are stained with love
Wish I could fake

I gave my life away
There's nothing left to say
I gave my life away
You take it in your way

I gave my life away
There's nothing left to say
I gave my life away
You take it in your way

You take it in your way
You take it in your way
You take it in your way
You take it in your way

    General Commentthis song is so sad. it's about feeling useless and giving up on life. I guess he feels like his life is a waste.

    General CommentMaybe he fell in love with some chick. He wasted his time with her because in the end they weren't the same and didn't get along.

    General Commentit's a great song ... so sad though :( it's about someone who's deeply in luv with a person who doesn't love him back but this guy can't help falling for that person.. he is saying that she took all his life and he got nothing left. in the part where he said " will now i find myself.." doesn't mean he is over it n over this controlling feeling, it means he only realized it, realized the desperate situation he is in to the level that he wish he could fake what he is feeling:( ... so sad and deeply meaningful.

    Song MeaningI agree with 2my completely. I think his love isn't being returned and in that, he wishes he was someone else, or wasn't feeling that way. It's so sad, dude.

    General CommentI also related this to bullying. To me it sounds like he wants to be friends with the bullys but they won't let him and they're saying such horrible stuff that he wishes he can't hear them.

    General Commentcould it be about how the world/people just piss you off but at the same time you feel so hopeful because you've fallen in love with someone? I could relate if that's the meaning.

    General CommentI think theres more to it then that. I think its about how you should not let people not run your life and it is definitely about relationships. I totally forgot that this song is off of daredevil. Like right after his childhood. Great movie by the way.
