"Got It Made" as written by and Dale William Stewart Shaun Morgan Welgemoed....
So I said this once before
I'm never gonna give you in
No, not again
'Cause I've waited all I've known, to watch it fade and slip away now

From my hands
And what I have I have in mind
And I think about you all the time

I'm feeling miles away- you think I've got it made
I don't belong here
I'm feeling like a candle burning at both ends
I don't belong here

Now I hide myself away, I never want to feel again
No, not again
'Cause I faced this all alone, I let it seep and wash away, now
It's all the same
And what I have I have in mind
And I think about you all the time

I'm feeling miles away- you think I've got it made
I don't belong here
I'm feeling like a candle burning at both ends
I don't belong here

Never run away, son
Never run away, son
Never run away, son

'Cause what I have I have in mind
And I think about you all the time

I'm feeling mile away- you think I've got it made
I don't belong here
I'm feeling like a candle burning at both ends
I don't belong here

    General CommentTo me this song is something Shaun Morgan may have wrote about the band getting bigger and more successful, its about the things he had to give up for his career. Possibly he doesn't feel he deserves all the he has now. Possibly he is trying to hold on to things he doesn't want to give up. Who knows? The interesting this is that Shaun Morgan always leaves his lyrics to interpretation, and thats mine.

    General CommentI also think it's about their career, like he's given up a lot to get where he is now but he misses everything that he has lost. He's at a crossroads because he wants to be with his family but he's also given up too much to just give up now, he also has obligations he can't run away from now. He's lonely because everyone thinks because he's got what he worked hard for that he should be happy but he's not.

    General CommentWell, I think about his Shaun’s father. A big clue being "Never run away, son" He ran away, he disobeyed his father, and rebelled, he played in a lot of bands against his fathers will. Now his band is well known, and he travels the world, but faces it all alone. His father thinks he has got it made, but in reality he feels empty in side and is struggling with life, like he doesn’t belong, and he’s facing it all alone, “feeling miles away”. This song could also be describing a possible addiction because of the line "I’m never gonna give you in".

    Song Meaningi think it's about Shaun's family.
    He once ran away from his family to start in the music buisness.

    Some thoughts about the lyrics:

    'Cause I've Wasted All I've Known
    To Watch it Fade and Slip Away
    Now, From my Hands
    (he wasted all the people who loved hem when i ran away from home
    He slowly saw what happend when he ran away)


    And what I have, I have in Mind
    And I think About You All the Time
    ( his family is still in his mind, even when he left his home)

    I'm Feeling Miles Away
    You think I've Got it Made
    (he feels he's miles away from his family who loves his while they think that shaun has made his way in the music buisness.)

    Never Run Away, Son
    ( a quote from his father?
    Or a warning to never run away from home because you will leave people behind who love you)

    This is what i think it means, but i could be wrong :-)

    General Commentits about growing distant from everything you have while masking it up so others dont see what is happening to you.
