"In Another Life" as written by Jessica Louise Origliasso, Lisa Marie Origliasso and Tobias Gad....
have known you my whole life
When you were ten, you said you'd make me your wife
Eight years later you won me over
Just as I took the world on my shoulders

I got used to living without you
Endless phone calls and dreaming about you
Always said that you were my man to be
But I guess I was in love with your memory

You know I love you, I really do
But I can't fight anymore for you
And I don't know, maybe we'll be together again
Sometime, in another life
In another life

I know I said that I would keep my word
I wished that I could save you from the hurt
But things will never go back to how we were
I'm sorry I can't be your world

You know I love you, I really do
But I can't fight anymore for you
And I don't know, maybe we'll be together again
Sometime, in another life
In another life

The way you're holding on to me
Makes me feel like I can't breathe
Just let me go, just let me go
It just won't feel right inside
God knows I've tried

You know I love you, I really do
But I can't fight anymore for you
And I don't know, maybe we'll be together again
Sometime, in another life
In another life

In another life, in another life

In another life

    General CommentShe was in love with her childhood friend and they promised when they got older, they're marry each other but that promise was broken and now she's saying that she does love him but she cant fight for him, meaning she's not waiting for him anymore but her love will always be there for him.

    General CommentThis is my fav on the album!

    Its for Jess's ex Steve.
    She had known him for ages but never got together because they were always with different people, but just before she moved to America (to become The Veronicas) they FINALLY got together.
    I remember reading interviews when they were together saying that they'd always call each other and stuff and how hard it was keeping a long distance relationship.
    And i guess Jess was the one who broke it off and is telling Steve that know matter what happens she still loves him.


    I was reading a interview and apparently when Jess was recording this she kept crying, so they did it like 20 times just to get it right. Then she sent it to Steve (who was ignoring her at the time), he heard it and loved it.

    Now there just friends

    General CommentThis song is deff about Steve, I came across his lyrics the other day and found this;
    "When's another life.
    Cause i heard that in her own song, she cries,
    and her tears get my hopes up everytime."

    Makes me cry everytime!
