We've all got scars as big as ours
A token for the pain we hide inside of us
Everyone's scared that somebody knows
You keep it inside, yeah, that's how it goes
If you've ever heard a beating heart
A rhythm for the songs we're too afraid to sing
Nobody here is perfectly fine
A delicate frame, a fragile design

If there's a hole in your heart
You gotta pull it together
It takes the courage to start
But now is better than never
It takes a push and a shove
Somehow it's never enough
And it's alarming how quick you could forget that

Nothing's bigger than love
Nothing's bigger than love
Nothing's bigger than love
All you need, all you need is love

Some people change and some just won't
You can't take back the words you wish you'd never said
Promises break and lovers will lie
You hold up your hands and let out a sigh
So smile right before you fall
And lay beside this mess and call it consequence
Somebody said that life isn't fair
When somebody else was saying a prayer

No one's taking me out
Nothing's pulling me down
I turn my head to the crowd
This love is big and it's loud

This is the car in the crash
This is the light in the flash
This is the answers you know
But you're just too scared ask

If there's a hole your heart
You gotta pull it together
It takes the courage to start
But now is better than never
It takes a push and a shove
Somehow it's never enough

    This part is amazing. We are all hiding, and we are so afraid to let people see that we are not perfect. The truth is, though, we all have scars. Dave continues singing ... "Nobody here is perfectly fine
    A delicate frame, a fragile design"

    "Some people change and some just won't
    ... Promises break and lovers will lie
    You hold up your hands and let out a sigh
    So smile right before you fall
    And lay beside this mess and call it consequence"

    This part is so true. I have personally sat around waiting for someone to change and in the end I just had to throw up my hands up and leave. You just have to love and respect yourself to move on to something right.
    My Favorite Highway is one of the few who lyrically go beyond the norm. They tie everything in to a deeper meaning that gives you chills when you listen to the music. Prime example "You're Making It Come Alive Cello Remix"

    General Commentthis has such a beautiful meaning.
    it's basically saying that despite everything that goes on. all the trauma, all the suffering, all the hard times, you can't forget about love. there's gotta be little nuisances that are gonna make your days hard, but you can't forget about what and/or who you love, because if you do that defeats all the goodness going on in your life.

    General Commentthe part where johnny says "they cant tell me who to be cuz im not what they see"

    reminds me exactly of my life right
    when people think a certain way of me i dont waste time trying to prove them wrong because i know im not what they see

    "they cant break me as long as i know who i am"
    i know who i am, thats all that matters
