"Call on the Life" as written by and John/colbert Bunch....
By your eyes I can see
By your eyes I've got vision all around
By your voice I can hear
By your voice all the fear comes crashing down
And like the light from above, whoa
I've seen the way I've been living underground
By your heart I can love, whoa
To make me feel like I'm never coming down

I'm not living for the past
No, I'm not living for the memories
There's no use in looking back
There's nothing there to see

There's no use in looking back
When I know there is nothing there to see
I'm not living for the past
Or for the memories

By your hands I can hold
By your hands I can build this from the ground
By your thoughts I can feel
By your thoughts I can deal with all our sound

Like the light from above, whoa
I've seen the way I've been living underground
By your heart I can love, whoa
To make me feel like I'm never coming down

I'm not living for the past
No, I'm not living for the memories
There's no use in looking back
There's nothing there to see

There's no use in looking back
When I know when there's nothing there to see
I'm not living for the past
Or for the memories

Call on the life
Call on the life
Call on the life
Call on the life

Call on the life (I'm not living for the past)
Call on the life (No, I'm not living for the memories)
Call on the life (There's no use in looking back)
Call on The life (I know that there's nothing there to see)

Call on the life
Call on the life
Call on the life

    General CommentI'm sort of thinking if you asked Jon himself, he really couldn't give you an answer as to what this song means. He could probably tell you he needed a couple more songs to cut the new album and this one came aboard. Could the chorus be anymore redundant? and what the heck does Call on the life mean??

    General CommentI personally feel it is one of the strongest songs on the album. I think it's got great spiritual metaphors relating to Jesus Christ, and how, by His voice, all of my fear comes crashing down. As a Christian, if I think of the "yours" as "God's" it makes perfect sense when parallelled w/ the Bible.

    General Commentpnew "Call on the life" means to call on Jesus's help (and eternal life) he offers as a promise to walking with him and leaving the "old self" (sinful path) behind in the past. In reference to:

    "Call on the life (I'm not living for the past)
    Call on the life (No, i'm not living for the memories)
    Call on the life (There's no use in looking back)
    Call on The life (I know that there's nothing there to see)"

    If you notice that everytime he "calls on the life," it seems to be proclaimed in the backround. Whereas, all the part in () are sung as normal lyrics, broken into two different sentences (1, 2, and 3, 4).
    I hope that helps.

    General CommentWow, it's call on MY life, not call on the life. That might help considering it changes the entire song.

    General CommentActually, sorry, but it is "Call on THE Life..." I own the CD. It says THE in the booklet. THE LIFE is Jesus Christ.
