"What About Now" as written by David Hodges, Josh Hartzler and Ben Moody....
Shadows fill an empty heart
As love is fading, from all the things that we are
Are not saying, can we see beyond the scars
And make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky
And open up to, the ways you made me feel alive
The ways I loved you
For all the things that never died
To make it through the night, love will find you

What about now? What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late, what about now?

The sun is breaking in your eyes
To start a new day
This broken heart can still survive
With a touch of your grace
Shadows fade into the light
I am by your side, where love will find you

What about now? What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late, what about now?

Now that we're here
Now that we've come this far, just hold on
There is nothing to fear
For I am right beside you
For all my life, I am yours

What about now? What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

What about now? What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late
Baby, before it's too late
Baby, before it's too late, what about now?

    General CommentIt's about trying to keep love alive before it exhausts itself. It's about being at the brink of losing someone you've had for so long and at the last possible moment reaching out to try and make it work. Very touching song.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a guy reaching out to a girl he still loves even though she left him. He tells her for all his life he is hers. He asks what if their love had never went way, what if it's just lost behind words they can't find. He's beggin her for a second chance before it's too late.

    General CommentI think it's about two people who both got hurt in this relationship...their love start fading and guess they just separated...but the guy hurt more and have broken heart...he is reaching up and trying to make things work...he think she still love him too when he look into her eyes...so he is asking what is she going to do...he let her know she no need to be afraid to come back cause he belong to her forever.

    General Commentto me this song is about me and my ex. been my ex for 5 months now. It's about loving someone and you had to break up. you didnt want to break up but at the time you didnt really have much of a choice. your both still friends but your acting like you dont love each other cause you dont want to show it. This song is about knowing you still love them and Realizing they might still love you too, or like you at least. so it's like What about now? What if your making me all that I was meant to be? What if our love never went away? What about now?.....

    General Commenti think chris daughtry would have to be the best current artist considering his songs have the deepest meanings, that actually relate to real life..

    but as for this song... i agree with teags6.

    it gives me goosebumps...



    i think daughtry is trying to explain about love that's there... just a little dusty... and unnoticed.

    it's about potential. and according to this song.. it's all there.
