Shadows fill an empty heart
As love is fading,
From all the things that we are
But 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, it 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 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 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 CommentThis song is about feelings, a will of people to return everything back, like it was in the past. People recall moments of happiness which they had and now miss so much. Now, after splitting up - they think, were they really the 2 halves of one heart? two halves of one life... as the couple is apart they do now what to do... the guy wants to return everything back and tries to persuade the girl. But he remains being along, he is depressed that is why the title here "what about now, what about today.." One of the greatest songs i've ever heard.

    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 Commentthis song totally describes my relationship right now.
    It's kind of bumpy, and we almost broke up last night.
    But, I know that there is more between us that we're not letting through,
    and I love him more than anything.
    I couldn't bare to lose him.

    Song MeaningAfter watching the video to daughtry's what about now, i strongly believe that the song is about making a difference in the world. The society we live in today, people are denying the fact that they can make a difference. That each one of us is the difference. Every little thing we do to help someone in need makes a difference. Also, people need to try to look past other peoples pasts and give them second chances. And most important, love. Everyone wants it, everyone needs it. So give it. Love isnt love til you give it away. Help people that need you. Before it's to late. Thats what i think this song is saying.

    General Commenti think this song has to do with love kind of
    like a guy and girl that separate
    could be for any reason, like another person or maybe just sumthing happened
    and theyr asking could sumthing still happen?
    maybe its after a long time
    and one of them is saying lets try it before its too late?
    thats what i think
