"You Are Mine" as written by and Paul Meany....
Everyone has their obsession
Consuming thoughts, consuming time
They hold high their prized possession
That defines the meaning of their life

[Chorus]
You are mine (x2)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine (x3)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine

There are objects of affection
That can mesmerize the soul
There is always one addiction
That just cannot be controlled

You are mine (x2)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine (x3)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine
You are mine (x2)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine (x3)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine

You are mine
You are mine
You are
You are
You are mine (x4)

Everyone has their obsession
Consuming thoughts, consuming time
They hold high their prized possession
They hold high their prized possession

You are mine (x2)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine (x3)
You are mine, all mine
You are mine

    General CommentI agree with dkspex23.... just because they're a christian band doesn't meen they talk about nothing but god. It just implies that there songs are often about christian topics.

    What if this song is just talkign about obsessions in general?

    After all, it says... "Everyone has their obsession, Consuming thoughts, consuming time, They hold high their prized posession, That defines the meaning of their lives"

    So it seems to me it's just talking about obsession. How it exists with almost everyone in some shape or form. and then in the chorus he says "you are mine" Signifying that he knows what his obsession is.

    Perhaps it's a song urging listeners to come to a realization of their own obsessions, so that in time they can get over them.

    General CommentThis is a really pretty song. It's about addiction, obsession...but really it's just a song saying how much he loves this girl. He's saying she's his obsession and he really loves her and couldn't live w/o her.

    General Comment"God god god god god"
    oh my "god" people, give it a rest.
    can't it just be about what's important to everyone? "everyone has their obsession." it can mean something different for everyone listening, so if an atheist is listening, i seriously doubt their obsession will be God. i'm not that religious-oriented, so the way i see this song is everyone values something in their life, and he's talking about whatever person he values. "objects of affection" and "always one addiction" don't really make god pop into my mind, but maybe that's just me.

    General CommentI agree this could be about God, but I am not religious, so for me, this song is not about God. I find a lot of sensuality in this song, so whatever the song is about, it sounds like a great song to have sex to.

    General CommentI agree, although it could also be God's obsession with us humans in that he loves us so much

    General CommentIt can be really any addiction. Although "Defines the meaning of their life" could be somebody he/she lives for. They could live for the person, and they are the only person that makes them continue life. Or it could be God, because (I don't believe in god) supposedly is WHY you are on the earth, it's the meaning of your life is to serve god (that's the super religious reason) which I don't agree with personally. I think its just about a person that he lives for and is practically addicted to the person.

    General CommentErm... I believe, coming from this Christian band... that he's saying God is his obsession. He consumes his life. Brilliant song, I've always loved it. Or... ah, I've never looked at it as God's obsession with us. Great interpretation there! But no, I just can't think that a band like them... with such high religious beliefs... would center this beautiful song around a girl.
