remember when the simple things were the things we loved, yeah yeah yea
remember when just living was simply enough, yeah yeah yeah
the fear fills the emptiness the years fill everything between

all this time is passing by
on the way I've had to say goodbye
all my life begins today
after all I've walked I've crawled I've learned along the way

fly away into the sun never to return, yeah yeah yeah
stay awake forever and watch this lifetime burn, yeah yeah yeah
peace breaks the loneliness and hope fills everything between

all this time is passing by
on the way I've had to say goodbye
all my life begins today
after all I've walked I've crawled I've learned along the way, yeah yeah yeah

walking down this road I've learned
to let go of what I know
cause everything can change again
I'm on the edge of all that can be
but what I can't control can't control my dreams

remember where the days we had would never seem to end, yeah yeah yeah
remember when we couldn't wait for life to begin, yeah yeah yeah
all the answers I've found on the way are few and far between

all this time is passing by
on the way I've had to say goodbye
all my life begins today
after all I've walked I've crawled I've loved along the way

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about memories and childhood and life, along the way. It's about growing up and his life. By growing up he's had to say goodbye to ways of life and people in it, just like each and everyone of us will be doing someday.

    "All my life beings today; after all, I've walked, I've crawled, I've loved along the way".

    Is about the stages of growing up, he feels like it's time to face life, as he's learned it to his best. Probably something he wrote around Graduation time, meaning he's on his own and he'll have to take that knowledge and use it to make something of himself.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. Jason's voice just fills the space in the music and fits so well the background guitar. Its about just reflecting on how your life has changed for good and bad. I love the line...
    "all the answers I've found on the way are few and far between"

    I love Lifehouse because the lyrics actually mean alot. Every single song just touches everyone in a different way. They aren't like alot of the music today written just to be there.
