"Soundtrack Of My Life" as written by Shelly M Peiken, Vinnie Fiorello, Rogerio Lima Manganelli and Louis James Schaub....
I'm on a mission to see what's been missing
My favorite song is on repeat but it's just not helping me
My eyes have been wider but never been brighter
Something else is going on, I need a reminder
Of why I feel this way

There's a fine line between
Living alive and feeling alive
There are times that I've been
Looking from the outside in
And here I go again
Falling behind, losing my mind
I'm pretending it's all right
Listening to the soundtrack of my life

I still believe in facing all my demons
And everything that people promise, everything I've always wanted
My mouth has been open, my words have been stolen
And they've been used against me, it's starting to affect me
And now I feel this way

There's a fine line between
Living alive and feeling alive
There are times that I've been
Looking from the outside in
And here I go again
Falling behind, losing my mind
I'm pretending it's all right
Listening to the soundtrack of my life

And it goes like this
And it takes me back
And it spins around and around
It goes around and always fades to black

There's a fine line between
Living alive and feeling alive
There are times that I've been
Looking from the outside in
And here I go again
Falling behind, losing my mind
I'm pretending it's all right
Listening to the soundtrack of my life

Listening to the soundtrack of my life

    General CommentIt's a nice song I suppose.

    I always thought it was about somebody who lives their life, but doesn't like it, and lives their life to their "Soundtrack"

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone that is living their life in a way they are not happy with. Living their life in a non-feeling way, more like a social robot.

    "There are times that I've been looking from the outside in"

    They have now realized that something is wrong and trying to fix it.

    "I'm on a mission to see what's been missing"

    The following quote is about the hard part in seeing the difference between living truly alive, feeling and reacting with true emotions compared to living in a planned way, not truly feeling nor letting yourself feel things.

    "There's a fine line between living alive and feeling alive"

    I could probably write a lot more on this song and my interpretation, but this will do for now. Send me a message if you would like me to continue.
