"This Life" as written by and John/witherspoon Connolly....
I heard your heartbeat
And my body grew so still
I looked into your mothers eyes
And i knew you were alive
I long to meet you and
Show you all i know
Hand in hand with this new love
This life means so much more

I know now what i hear
It's a new love that i feel
It's you that blessed us with this life
That we've waited for so long

Your life has changed me
I'm not the man i was before
You're in my head my heart my soul
You're always on my mind
My time to know you is
Quickly drawing near but
Not as fast as my love grows
You've made me feel alive

I know now what i hear
It's a new love that i feel
It's you that blessed us with this life
That we've waited for so long
(repeat)
Nice to see you welcome to
This place that we call home
Life looks brighter now you're here

I know now what i hear
It's a new love that i feel
It's you that blessed us with this life
That we've waited for so long

We're so happy now
We're so happy now
You're here

    General Commenti became a fan of sevendust because of theyre hard rockin music but this is one of the best slow songs ive heard since Staind's Epiphany.

    General CommentFantastic song, and yes, it is about the birth of John's daughter.

    A lot of people I know have compared this song to Creed's "With Arms Wide Open" because of the similar subject matter, but I think that is a VERY unfair comparison. Sevendust are, always have been, and always will be musically superior to Creed. Why they even agreed to ever tour with them back in the day is beyond me; aside from wanting to get noticed.

    General CommentThey probably toured with Creed because they get along and share the same beliefs. They thank God like crazy in all their CDs. Still is a weird billing though since if it was back in the day Sevendust would have been playing harder stuff from their first albums before they started changing their sound. Even though Sevendust is, for the most part, metal and kicks Creed's ass.
