"Lightspeed" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
I play centerfield for the home team
You might not see me from the nosebleeds
I’ll stand up on top of the dugout
And shout out and wave my arms and hold my tongue
‘Cause it’s not me

I wondered how fast is light speed
Would life itself stay or follow me?

And coach look at me now
Look at me now
And team look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now

Foul ball deep in centerfield
Ninth inning, two outs
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now

I wondered how fast is light speed
Would life itself stay or follow me?
If I caught that one
Would it be the same?
It’s a good thing this is just a game

    General Commenti think this all relates to life. matt puts the game baseball as a metaphore to life a "succeding" or "failing" at life. by catching the ball he could mean like making good grades and going to college or making a wrong desicion in life. and now he wounders if that really affected him.
