"The Fort" as written by and Jeremy Butler Josh Butler....
If we had one opportunity, one chance just a chance to go and find ourselves (like when we were young, when we were)
Best friends running through the woods and we were acting like we're lost just to get away for
The weekend (just to get away) from the city

We could spend tonight looking back
Or we could try to find all this time spent on barely knowing who we are
A child? like us, is all we need

So here's our chance,
Our chance to make the change
To become the type of people that we've
Always wanted to be
(we're not living by what anybody says,
Only living by what we've known since we)
We were, we were best friends
And we knew how to get away for the weekend

We could spend tonight looking back
Or we could try to find all this time spent
On barely knowing who we are
A child, like this, is all we need

I found myself in the forest (in the forest)
I found love in the forest
We just need time to try and find ourselves again
Or just time to breathe

We think we need so many useless things
When all we really need is time to breathe [X2]

    General Commenti think it's that everyone needs to stop their busy lives and take a moment to look arounf them and think about whats going on. and to stop only thinking about getting whatever done. you have to look at back at what you've done. you need to relax and look around you.

    General CommentRyan Kirkland's vocals sound a bit like jon foreman's of switchfoot. its cool.
    i think oxerinx33 is right. everyone needs to just chill out and apreciate life.

    General CommentRyan's vocals reminded me of Jon Foreman too!
    I really like/love this band.

    And I think
    A child? like us, is all we need
    might be
    A childlike love is all we need
    thats how it sounded to me at least.
