"Little Wonders" as written by and Rob Thomas....
Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over?
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain

Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
Until you feel it all around you
And I don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But I can not forget
The way I feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away, but these small hours
These small hours, still remain
They still remain
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain

    MemoryFor us, it means so much because it belongs to a movie our mentally handicapped son watched right before he died. He immediately wanted the soundtrack--this song. This song so speaks to us, now, like he knew he was going to leave us, giving us advice on how to deal with it all. "All of our regret will wash away somehow." He was so, so special. Many of his favorite songs are very special now. But this one, the most. He had a very special heart, and it's the heart that really matters in the end.

    MemoryThis song has a very personal meaning to me. A dear friend of mine passed away in a car accident almost a year ago. She was the sweetest, most sincere, talented, and fun person I've ever met. I wanted to be just like her. After her funeral service, a slideshow/video of her was shown, with pictures of her growing up, living life, and doing what she loved most- figure skating and playing the violin. This song was played with the video.
    LET IT GO, LET IT ROLL RIGHT OFF YOUR SHOULDER, DON'T YOU KNOW, THE HARDEST PART IS OVER. Let the sadness go. whatever pain you are in, let it go. for me, it was to let my grief go, don't remember her and cry, remember her and smile.
    IN THE END, WE WILL ONLY JUST REMEMBER HOW IT FEELS. if we focus on the pain in our lives, that's all we'll get out of it. remember the good, if small, moments.
    OUR LIVES ARE MADE, IN THESE SMALL HOURS, THESE LITTLE WONDERS, THESE TWISTS AND TURNS OF FATE. TIME FALLS AWAY, BUT THESE SMALL HOURS, THESE LITTLE WONDERS, STILL REMAIN. If you've ever lost a loved one, you'll find you have thousands of small memories of moments you've spent with these people. sometimes these are just smiles or laughs, or moments of understanding, but it's what you remember the best after they're gone. these are the small wonders and hours of our lives. they may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but it's what matters in the end. as for the twists and turns of fate- life changes. always. and you can either fight it and fight it and fight it, or learn to roll with it and enjoy the ride as best as you can.
    LET IT SLIDE. LET YOUR TROUBLES FALL BEHIND YOU, LET IT SHINE, UNTIL YOU FEEL IT ALL AROUND YOU, AND I DON'T MIND, IF IT'S ME YOU NEED TO TURN TO, WE'LL GET BY, IT'S THE HEART THAT REALLY MATTERS IN THE END. this is about letting go of regrets. remember those good feelings of those good moments- let them surround you in warmth. forget yourself once in awhile- we are all facing trials, and sometimes the best help for yourself is to help others. two is stronger than one. and the last line- it's what's inside you that really matters in the end.
    ALL OF MY REGRET, WILL WASH AWAY SOMEHOW, BUT I CANNOT FORGET, THE WAY I FEEL RIGHT NOW. after my friend's death- i knew i'd never forget that pain i was feeling, but i also knew that i'd heal, and my regrets of not telling her how wonderful she was and how much i treasured her as a friend wouldn't bother me if i could forgive myself.

    That's My interpretation of this song. It's kinda personal, yes, but i hope you can see what i mean and understand. (i also hope you respect that this was hard to write, so don't be mean- we all have opinions, and not all of us agree)
    if this touched you at all, i'd love to know. thanks for reading! :)

    General CommentI think the song is referring to adversity in general that happens throughout life. For example - someone is passed over for a job promotion that they really wanted. The lyrics remind us that the pain and frustration is fleeting but what is important is your reaction to the adversity and how you let it affect you/shape you.

    General Commenti guess the song is trying to tell people to treasure the small moments in life that really mould you to what you are, and not to take them for granted. for the horrible things that happened, to let go of it, and move on, but at the same time holding on to precious moments in life.

    i'm not really sure if i'm correct, but i LOVE this song!

    General CommentWow, this song is just awsome. To me it kinda reminds me of the ending of something. In my case I'm going to graduate high school in less then a month. I feel likde the time has just flew by. There are so many events that I could talk about but like this song it summarizes the everyday things. I think this song is perfect for graduation.

    General CommentThis song really confirmed the way I've been feeling since a recent break up - the hardest part is over - that initial chemical withdrawal of those incredible 'in love' endorphins - sorry, is that a drab, unromantic interpretation of love? - and yeah, sure, grief isn't a linear process, but every little triumph, every small moment where I do choose between negativity and believing for a great future regardless, these little wonders, moments of strength and resilience that no one sees but me, the clarity that comes with a clean break instead of continually returning to get that momentary rush again, all of these I let define me.

    My InterpretationI find this song amazing. While I doubt this is the actual meaning of the song, I was making a playlist of things that I would want to listen to as my last song.

    This song makes perfect sense as a death song. I know this sounds weird, but just take a look at the lyrics again.

    For instance:
    The hardest part is over
    Or:
    Let it in...In the end, we will only just remember how it feels

    I could go on, but just try that interpretation on for size. Particularly the "light" line.

    General Commenti think its a love song or one to have to do with your friends, "let it go,
    let it roll right off your shoulder, don't you know the hardest part is over" is pretty much like your having a fight between two people or many, we only have so many hours to live so live it up and make the best of wat you have with anyone. treasure all the precious times you all spent together life is short so just make the best of it, this song is pretty much like my motto: live life to the fullest, its gonna have its hard times but just keep going and live it up because life is like a roller coaster it has its twist and turns of fate, charish all those great times you have because they'll be the best times of your life, and love the ones who love you back because their the ones who will be there for you.

    General CommentAll in all, I think this song is about the little things that make us who we are. It's not the ordinary, everyday things that define us, but the more significant events like love, loss, etc. Everything else is just filler.

    General Commenti'm probably wrong but it seems to me that he's talking about just relaxing all the bullshit is over
