"All In All" as written by Jason Wade and Ean Mering....
Standing on top of the edge it feels like it's going down
Everything stays in my mind feeling in a daze on the ground
Feels like it's gonna give life's to hard to live anymore
I think I've had enough things too tough
I'm out the door

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

Things don't stop and the others announced they're moving on
Salt & tears in the minds in the mouths of a bad decision
Too late for another mistake it's bringing me down
With all your faults it isn't your fault
what's going on

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

So you lost yourself
So you lost your way
Found life through someone else
But you threw it all away

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

Times rolling on
rolling on today
It's going on
Going on today

    General CommentAH THIS SONG.. haha i love Lifehouse i love every song Jason has ever written whether it was with the band or solo. i think he has alot of more powerful lyrics but for some reason THIS song is my very favorite. i get chills everytime i hear

    Standing on top of the world tonight
    No one's looking back at you
    Stand tall, it's going on, it's going on
    It's gonna be just fine
    You're holding on, holding on today

    when my life is just chaotic and i feel like im in a never ending mess and cannot control anything not even my own emotions i just mentally picture myself being pulled away from all the chaos and being put high above it. the line no one's looking back at you to me means you are in control, i know there are many other ways to interpret that line ha but thats how i like to think it and then of course stand tall its gonna be just fine your holding on. I LOVE THIS SONG!

    General CommentThings don't stop
    And the others announce they're moving on
    Salt and tears in the minds and the mouths of a bad decision
    Too late for another mistake
    It's bringing you down
    With all your faults, it isn't your fault
    What's going on

    That part means so much to me & it puts lyrics to something I'm currently going through.
    Recently I had just found out that 5 of my closest friends had started a tasteless joke about me for NO reason at all other than me being a good friend. (I never bad mouth them once was always there when they needed me ect) I had found out about it from a third party and they promised they would stop but those words were only said after I had found out and they blantley lied to my face
    Those 5 people I had hoped to continue my friendship after we had graduated but sadly because of this event they not only have lost my trust but probably me as a great friend to them.

    Anywho I think the song talks about how we all hit rough patches in life
    and those situations help us grow as a person no matter how much it hurts at the time.
    Yea we make think its the whole world is going to end but we just have to somehow pick ourselves up again
    & put one foot in front of the other.

    General CommentI love this song...one of my favorites from Lifehouse. I think it's just about realizing that no matter what situation you're in, whether it be just a bad day or a bad month or year, things are going to eventually straighten out. Everyday is a new opportunity to work towards getting things right again.
    I also think it has spiritual/Biblical references. Like in this verse..

    "So you lost yourself
    So you lost your way
    Found life through someone else
    But you threw it all away"

    It could be talking about anything when it says "so you lost yourself, so you lost your way." Perhaps someone lost their faith in God, or just their faith in themselves. "Found life through someone else"...I definitely see how it can be a relationship but I also see it as finding life through Jesus Christ, where He offers you everything you could ever need, but for whatever reason, you reject it.

    Either way, it's a great song!

    General CommentThe very best Lifehouse song. It's about when when you falling down, you can get back and if you hold on, it's going to be fine after all.

    General CommentI think this song is saying that they there are going to be bad things happening everyday but the only way to get through them is to realize that its going to be fine and you'll make it through. It seems like I usually make it through things that I never thought I would and then I look back and wish that I would've realized then that things would turn out right. Usually in the end things do turn out how they're supposed to.

    General Commentthis song is so creative, i think its about independence. You're in a relationship yet you still can hold on to your independence. All in all your still the same you in the end of the day.
