"Feel" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Guy Antony Chambers....
Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
'Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
I don't wanna die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her

Scare myself to death
That's why I keep on running
Before I've arrived
I can see myself coming

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
'Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I cannot get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand

    General CommentHey all!
    I have this personal hobby of writing about the meanings that I derive from the songs I relate to. It was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this site. I wish I had known abt it earlier ... I could have contributed much before. Anyways, better late than never!!

    For this song, I am amazed there r so few posts (compared to other good songs tht I've browsed on this site). The song's way too beautiful. At least for me.
    I could relate to this song in my own way. Perhaps it wasn't really written with the same meaning. The earlier interpretations (esp. the one about overcoming drug-addiction) seem more logical and likely. But whenever I hear the song I picture a guy who desperately wants to confess his love but for some reason(s) holds himself back...


    ------------------------------
    "Come and hold my hand
    I wanna contact the living
    Not sure I understand
    This role I've been given"

    I long for your presence; I want u to be always with me. (But do I desrve it?) .
    You r my life and I wanna live. I wanna bare my mind completely for you.
    But I can't. (Moreover I aint sure if I should ! )


    ------------------------------
    "I sit and talk to God
    And he just laughs at my plans
    My head speaks a language
    I don't understand"

    After trying everythin -. from 'fighting back' to 'running away' - in vain, I pretend rationalizing.
    But I know it's useless. So much that even He laughs at me.
    I don't know what to do . I can't trust my own mind.. (I think I m going mad.)


    ------------------------------
    "I just wanna feel real love
    Feel the home that I live in
    I got too much life
    Running through my veins
    Going to waste"

    Somewhere deep inside I do crave for your (real) love and that we have a 'home' that I had always dreamt of (the home that I live in) (unlike the one I've been living in all these years)
    But at the same time I don't know if i deserve it.
    My life has been such a waste that whatever i've lived is more than I deserve (I got too much life)

    ------------------------------


    Please post your comments.

    Take care!!

    General CommentAs a Catholic priest, I think this song speaks volumes to the human soul. It is not about superficial love, but about the deeper discovery of the spirit, and the idea of life after death. This is a beautiful song, and always makes me think. It is true that sometimes it appears that God laughs at our plans, but it is just our God-filters that make that seem to be the case...Robbie is searching, keep searching Robbie.

    General CommentIt is about God and the enternal life,Robbie wants you to hold hes hand,while contact the living,
    He wants you to join him feeling Gods great love,and join him in a life ever after,
    And Robbie feels he is to much full of life, to let it go to waste by dying.
    And to just die,and be done just moore dead,its little comperad to this thing we call enternal life (we cant possible understand what it is as humans)

    Well,i dident know that Robbie had figured it out,and Robbie has been given a spesial role in life.

    And God is using him,
    The song and the lyrics is really brilliant done,but he cooaperates with a truly brilliant one.
    And Robbie is doing something really great.
    So dont waste your lifes away by death,start to belive,and you must REALLY belive,and
    a can promise you will find out something REAL great.,,,..But remember,YOU MUST REALLY BELIVE,

    like Robbie.

    General CommentWhy has no one left a comment for this song? I can't believe it! This song is so beautiful. It is really touching and makes you feel that you're not alone in this world (for those of us who dont have a significant other and never have) I love how he protrays his feelings so openly in his songs. Robbie is an amazing artist.

    General Commentpoor rob, i hope he finds true love someday, he deserves it, although the line where he says "There's a hole in my soul
    You can see it in my face
    It's a real big place"

    that part where he says it's a real big place, he was just fishing with rhyming words there lol

    General CommentThis song speaks for itself really, it's a gorgeous song about wanting to fall in love properly, once and for all.

    General CommentThe song is not about finding a boy/girlfriend. Instead of finding love within somebody else, it is about finding love within yourself. "I just wanna feel real love
    Feel the home that I live in" is like get in touch with this body I live in.
