"The End Has Only Begun" as written by and Jason Wade....
We walk in your footsteps
Though I've had my ups and downs
And I'll stand in the silence
Until I figure it out

One might fall and the other will stand
And one might give where the other won't bend
The night is bright as the sun

I'm never gonna know
Never gonna look back
Never gonna know where we would have ended up at
The end has only begun

So stop counting the hours
Live out in the world
'Cause I've been chasing the answers
And they don't want to be found

One might fall and the other will stand
And one might give where the other won't bend
The night is as bright as the sun

I'm never gonna know
Never gonna look back
Never gonna know where we would have ended up at
The end has only begun

Well the day
Tonight feels like a million miles away
And these times just won't change
Life just stays the same
I'd give anything to see the light of day

Cause I've been too far away
To hear you whispering

They say one might fall and the other will stand
And one might give where the other won't bend
The night is as bright as the sun

I'm never gonna know
Never gonna look back
Never gonna know where we would have ended up at
The end has only begun

Well the day
Tonight feels like a million miles away
And these times just won't change
Life just stays the same
I'd give anything to see the light of day

What you do
No one can decide it's up to you
And who you are is what you choose
These times when the world falls apart
Make us who we are

    General CommentWow! I'm the second person to comment on this. Ahaha! Well, I heard this song and I immediately thought it was a Christian song. Maybe it's just me... But, I've heard Lifehouse is a Christian band, so it makes sense. Consider when Jason sings, "We walk in your footsteps". Well, we, as Christians, walk in God's footsteps and yes, we have our "ups and downs", because sometimes we disappoint God with our words and/or our actions.... "And these times just won't change. Life just stays the same. I'd give anything to see the light of day" sounds like he's crying out to see God's light. And "'Cause I've been too far away to hear you whispering" gives me another "clue" because sometimes God tells us stuff, but we don't hear Him because we're not listening... Maybe it's also about having a Godly relationship. Because the chorus sounds like a relationship to me... I'll just have to think about it some more... just thought I'd tell ya now while it's still on my mind. :D

    General CommentNo one commented on this song either? I guess it's under-appreciated then. The tone of the speaker (Jason Wade, of course) sounds indifferent. It's like, he knows that "the end has only begun," and that "these times just won't change," in spite of his desire for something new, something exciting. "When the world falls apart," according to him, is when we "[make] who we are."

    General CommentI've always thought of this song to be about a break up. "We" seems like a reference to the speaker and his/her girlfriend/boyfriend. Similarly, "One might fall and the other will stand" might be dealing with how each one carries on after the break up.

    I don't know, it kinda seems like the speaker is trying to understand what has happened in the aftermath of a break up, I think. "And I'll stand in the silence/ Until I figure it out," makes it seem as if he's trying to fit the pieces together. But he'll never be able to, "I'm never gonna know/Never gonna look back/ Never gonna know where we would've ended up at." He realizes that, stops worrying about it and looking back. He has to move on. But time seems stuck, because he'll give anything for the comfort of the night, and later the light of day.

    At the end of the song, the speaker realizes that it's crisis that defines us. Who he is who he chooses to be, how he chooses to act when the world makes no sense.
