"In Search For I" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
It hurts to think
Can't get the sums together
Would you draw my bitterness
Make the pictures fade

Could it be that I see
What's beneath when we fall
The truth in ever
I'm scared that I'll be

Will time open my vault
New solution, I'm begging
Break the fuse that holds me back

The I is lost in me
But I'm ready to give you
The m, it might even be the e
As I begin to search for I

Distract, push me in another direction
This wall that I stare into
It's getting old
Give me faith to reach for the new
Pull me apart and do me all over
I'll need a re-make
To make up for my mistakes

What if I stop to care?
What if I let you fall?

    General Commentpretty good song, although IF has way better. I read this one as basically being about an identity crisis, or wanting to move on to something new but not being able to.

    General CommentThis is about someone being scorningful of not knowing who he is.. he keeps pushing himself on people waiting to be accepted but he never feels like he belongs.

    General CommentHmm...

    To me this song is talking about how he has nothing left to keep himself going, but he will offer whatever he has left to whoever he's speaking to in the song.

    But that's just me...

    General CommentThe title sais it all, I search for I, it's about finding your true self, deep under all the layers of customized personalities.

    It hurts to think

    Would you draw my bitterness
    Make the pictures fade

    Could it be that I see
    What's beneath when we fall
    The truth in ever
    I'm scared that I will be

    The sentence is light
    But my eyes see a different world
    And all I do is turn into flames

    Will time open my vault
    New solution, I'm begging
    Break the fuse that holds me back

    The I is lost in me
    But I am ready to give you The M,
    It might even be the E
    As I begin to search for I
    The I is lost in me

    Distract, push me in another direction
    This wall that I stare into
    It's getting old
    Give me faith to reach for the new
    Pull me apart and do me all over
    I'll need a re-make
    To make up for my mistakes

    The I is lost in me
    But I am ready to give you The M,
    It might even be the E
    As I begin to search for I
    The I is lost in me

    What if I stop to care?
    What if I let you fall?

    What if I stop to care?
    What if I let you fall?

    The I is lost in me
    But I am ready to give you The M,
    It might even be the E
    As I begin to search for I
    The I is lost in me

    Song MeaningMy thoughts on the meaning of this song is that he's trying to find the person he wants to be and used to be because he dislikes the person he has become now. "I'll need a re-make To make up for my mistakes" It could also mean that he just wants to push everything aside and start anew and thus search for a new me.
