"Radiate" as written by Alexander Francis Barry, Tony Bruno, Shelly Peiken, Bill Stevenson, Douglas John Ardito and Wesley Reid Scantlin....
It's the saddest sight, how you are tonight
I'm pushing through just to make you melt away
Are you all alone? Is someone home?
Is there nothing left for us to take?
Cause if you believe, we can surely find a way
What more can I say?

[Chorus]
Does it radiate?
Does it break your heart in two?
Does it take you down when you don't know where you're running to?
Does it save your faith?
Does it ever go that far?
What else is it for?

We can run away, leave the world behind
The human race and this imaginary grace (I can see us breaking)
Is there something more?
We won't know till we try
The future's open wide

[Chorus]

Twisted bent turned around
Just about lost inside your maze
We can let it go and take a chance today
Are we better off on our own?
Nobody to tell us what we've got and what we don't

[Chorus]

Twisted bent turned around
Just about lost inside your maze

    General CommentI think its a about a guy(or girl) who is in love with someone and the other person tells them that they feel the same, but they are not really ready to act on this feeling and the singer of the song is like if u dont take a chance on love then what good is it.

    General Commentyeah i would have to agree with the above post for the most part. id say if its about anything, its about that. i just read the lyrics and listened to the song and thought about it before reading below and thats what i thought as well.

    General CommentAnd i forgot to mention that i love the song's sound and power... its just beautiful, all of it. lyrically i dont find it as appealling. not that im saying the lyrics are bad, but i mean in comparison i think the song is great. often with me the sound and song as a whole without the lyrics hook me into really digging a song but later on if the lyrics are good or if i can relate a lot then i can really get into them. so i never think of the lyrics to be not as important of an aspect to a song, so i dont know why im getting into this.. wtf.. randy.. haha... alright screw it.. anyway disregard that... thanks. peace.

    General CommentI think the song is about becoming a christian, and how it changes your life. its a great song. if you think about it. the first verse can represent someone without Christ. and him telling her to believe, then him explaining how it changed his life.

    General CommentHa Ha Ha... Funny how with some people all songs relate to religion... Really don't think that has anything to do with it, but it's your opinion I guess. Definatelly agree with Jrock... Not all songs are about religion...

    General Commenthey I'm not trying to offend you or anything, its just my opinion, I posted on the songs I think have to do with religion even though there are tons more, because its something that gets overlooked unless a band is "labeled" as christian. I am a semi professional writer and musician, being so I like to get people thinking on lyrics, if you don't agree thats fine, I didn't expect anyone to anyway. lyrics are complex, don't be so quick to judge a song.

    General CommentI wonder if this whole song is simply about love.
    Does it radiate? - Love can radiate.
    Does it break your heart in two? - Love can break your heart.
    Does it take you down when you don't know where you're running to? - It can stop you from running away.
    Does it save your faith? - Love can sustain faith.
    Does it ever go that far?
    What else is it for?

    Does it radiate?
    Yeah it does for me - His love radiates for her.
    I can take you down
    It will knock you over to your knees - He can profess his love physically now.
    Let it save your faith - Let this love assure you that everything is okay.
    We can let it go that far, what else is it for? - Let go of your inhibitions and give love a try by going further.

    Song Meaningi think its about more of situation im in about a guy who loves a girl and she does not like him and he is trying to tell her "we could run away leave the world behind" and in the chorus he says does it radiate does it break your heart in two implying that "does it hurt to see what you do to me" (i love you lexi)
