"Failure" as written by and John/witherspoon Connolly....
Focus on a new way
A new day has begun for me
I thought that yesterday was a bad day
So I took my time to figure it out
Whats the right way to live by me
(So I'll find a reason why)


[Chorus]

All my life I've been waiting for a chance like this
(I've seen horizons fall before me)
All my life I've been wishing for your promises
(I always thought I'd be a failure)
All my life all my life I've been here


Sorrow was the old way
I won't subdue the truth
From regrets and failure I arise
To redefine all they expected of me
In the meantime I hope you'll see
You never stood by me
(and now you know the reason)


[Chorus]

All my life I've been waiting for a chance like this
(I've seen horizons fall before me)
All my life I've been wishing for your promises
(I always thought I'd be a failure)
All my life all my life I've been here

(repeat chorus)

    General CommentI love this song and it is also one of my favorites from Next. I beleive it's about someone realizing that he/she is not a failure and can change and have a good life instead of living through a fake or miserable life. It's all about getting the chance to start over.

    General Commenton the dvd they say the song is about anyone who ever told you that you would never make it or that you were worthless(hint failure) but there is no reason to let what anyone ever told you hold you back. its about change with a new attitude on life.

    General CommentIt's about how a human should have the pride and courage to move on from any type of failure. No matter what happens, no matter WHAT, you must try to live and walk on. Humanity has it's pride in survival

    General CommentThis one's pretty easy. I think Jsin26 saw the same DVD that I did...Sonny Mayo said it is a "positive message" about accomplishing your goals despite someone making you feel like a failure for many years.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song off of Next. I basically feel it's about getting past a relationship that was failing, and after passing by other opportunities. Not to mention the notion of always searching for the right person.

    General Commenti think it's maybe about being signed...maybe he lived a bad life when he was younger and now he has reached self acculization..finally being what he dreamed of being..if you've taken high school psychology you know exactly what i mean
