"phoenix" as written by Jason Mcevoy, Mike Victory and Bruce Young....
I’ve been talking to my self
And I’ve been walking around for days
Trying to make the pieces fit
There’s always something in the way (regret)
And the world remains the same (perfect)
To the world a single name (downside)
On the road that isn’t going (distance)
And the weight of you is so long

And I’m searching for my self
I’m trying to find the words to say
I can never let you go
And a part of me will stay (with you)
I’ll never let you down (I swear)
You’ll never hit the ground (inside)
And the forces still remain (outside)

If you’re lost don’t ever hide
Before you open your eyes
I’ll be coming around again
Before you open your eyes
I’ll just pretend
I am always by your side
I am always by your side

I’ve been thinking to my self
And I’ve been hoping I’ll be right
When I make the pieces fit
Will I bring you back to life
I’m trying to find a way no
I’m running out of time
I’ve tried giving it all aside (I swear)

If you’re lost don’t ever hide
Before you open your eyes
I’ll be coming around again
Before you open your eyes
I’ll just pretend
I am always by your side
I am always by your side
By your side
I’m coming around again

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Because someone loves you
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Because someone loves you
Open your eyes up and see

If you’re lost don’t ever hide
Before you open your eyes
I’ll be coming around again
Before you open your eyes
I’ll just pretend
I am always by your side
I am always by your side
By your side

    General Commentawesome song!!! absolutely brilliant! in my opinion it is about a girl that he likes that is in a deep depression and is unable to see the positives. he is asking her to realise that he is there for her and will always be there. he hopes that he can understand what she is going through and help her to overcome this obstacle and "bring her back to life"

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is about a guy who likes a girl who is depressed or something and can't find the words to tell her how he feels. He hopes that if she knows how he feels, she will feel better and not top herself....possibly. I worded that completely wrong but I know what I mean.

    General CommentThe new album, Imago, will catapult TBE into superstardom here in Australia. I have added the first few songs, the rest will be up later. But if you like this band, BUY IMAGO NOW!

    General CommentOkay, so you can all hate me if you think im wrong, but this is ONE of the meanings i believe....... the guy who' singing is dead or a ghost (not neccessarily Clint, though we love him) and he is trying to tell this girl he has left behind that he loves her, but she cant hear him. So when he says
    "I’ll just pretend
    I am always by your side" he means that he is always with her, even if she feels that no-one loves her or she's alone, he will always be there. As for the whole 'Phoenix' thing, when he sings "There’s always something in the way (regret)" he could mean that he's dead, and 'regret' means that he wishes he were alive so that she knew how much he loved her. He wishes he could be alive again, thus the meaning of a phoenix rising form the ashes to live again.

    General CommentI always thought the person male or female is singing about someone he/she knows that is in a coma. Only becuase the idea of the phoenix is to rise again, 'bring you back to life', 'talking to myself', 'wait of you is so long', 'before you open your eyes', 'always by your side', 'open your eyes because someone loves you', 'if your lost dont ever hide'. all kinda to do with my idea. What yas think?
