"More To Life" as written by Harvey Jay Mason, Kevin Kadish, Sabelle Beer, Lucy Woodward and Damon E. Thomas....
Yeah yeah oh
I've got it all, but I feel so deprived
I go up, I come down and I'm emptier inside
Tell me what is this thing that I feel like I'm missing
And why can't I let go

There's gotta be more to life
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
'Cause the more that I'm
Tripping out thinking there must be more to life
Well it's life, but I'm sure, there's gotta be more
Than wanting more

I've got the time and I'm wasting it slowly
Here in this moment I'm half way out the door
Onto the next thing, I'm searching for something that's missing

There's gotta be more to life
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
'Cause the more that I'm
Tripping out thinking there must be more to life
Well it's life, but I'm sure, there's gotta be more
I'm wanting more

I'm always waiting on something other than this
Why am I feelin' like there's something I missed

There's gotta be more to life
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
'Cause the more that I'm
Tripping out thinking there must be more to life
Well it's life, but I'm sure

There's gotta be more to life
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
'Cause the more that I'm
Tripping out thinking there must be more to life
Well it's life, but I'm sure
There's gotta be more to life
More to life, more to life
There's gotta be more to life
More to life, more to life
There's gotta be more to life
More to life

    General Commentthe lyrical content of this song is crap. It was really popular in Australia... wonder why no-one commented on it?

    General Comment^ ?
    It's not supposed to be a work of profound lyrical genious. Many of the songs on the radio these days arent.....
    The MEANING is the fact that we all come to realize one day that there must be another reason for life. It's not as simple as a 9-5 or finding a soulmate.

    General CommentWell that was exactly the way I felt right before I became a christian...I had been asking myself for quite a while, there has to be more than this? is this truly what life is?? and then I found Jesus Christ! and that's when I found the meaning to what life is supposed to be.

    blessings to all!

    General Commentwell i was talking with my friend about this song once and we both had about the same view on one possible meaning and we both thought it had to deal with drugs. It just made a lot of sence because of the refrence to chasing that temporary high, and at the beging she talking about going up and coming back down and feeling emptier inside. well thats what we thought!

    General CommentI've always loved this song and the video.
    I've always thought it meant that no matter what you do, no matter what condition, You're just never content.
    And as humans, well, we really are never content.
    When we get something, we want more, and more of it.
    And even though we have quite a lot, we still are never content. And when we're never content, it just makes us depressed and sad even though we have quite a lot.
