"Anthem" as written by and Donald/kerr Johnson....
Whats a miracle if life itself is not
Who am I to praise its worth with a hymn
I may stumble over words that I forgot
Just as life itself slowly begins
Sing me a song for the mountains to move
Sing me the anthem of life
Sing me the anthem of life
I am skeptical, i like my glass of wine
I don't know your name or what i am to do
One day you'll wonder why i try to read between the lines
And you will sing for me the way i sing for you
Sing me a song for the ocean to part
Sing me the anthem of life
Sing me the anthem of life
Sing me the anthem of life
So another page is turned
I pray that i understand whats happening
But if anything, i do know this
I'll be the best i can
Sing me a song
let the angels rejoice
Sing me an anthem of life
Sing me the anthem
Sing me the anthem of life

    General CommentRoy Khan wrote this song a couple of months before his son was born. This song is about his fears of becoming a father.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song, as for the meaning, it's about Roy being a father apart from the child not being born yet because he wrote it before his child was born

    My InterpretationWhile it is a song about Roy's son, it is a very spiritual one. He's stating that he may not be perfect, but no matter what happens he will always try his best. Being a dad myself, I understand exactly how he feels.
