"Justify" as written by and James/child Michael....
So close so far I'm lost in time
Ready to follow a sign
If there was only a sign
The last goodbye burns in my mind
Why did I leave you behind?
Guess it was too high to climb

Give me a reason
Why would you want me
To live and die
Living a lie
You were the answer
All that I needed
To justify, justify my life

Someone as beautiful as you
Could do much better it's true
That didn't matter to you
I tried so hard to be the one
Its something I couldn't do
Guess I was under the gun

Give me a reason
Why would you want me
To live and die
Living a lie
You were the answer
All that I needed
To justify, justify my life

It's only right
That I should go
And find myself
Before I go and ruin
Someone else

So close so far
I'm lost in time
Ready to follow a sign
If there was only a sign

Give me a reason
Why would you want me
To live and die
Living a lie
You were the answer
All that I needed
To justify, justify my life

It's only right
That I should go
And find myself
Before I go and ruin
Someone else

    General Commentthere s a guy who gets these problems with himself, like depression, and a girl he loves whos always helped him and been there for him, but now hes going away to 'find himself' maybe seek out his past? and hes left her behind and looks back and realises that she was really all that he needed anyhow

    General CommentMaybe this is their saddest song ever; an unborn love, which was "all that he needed to justify his life". But he has not gone mad with pain, he is still reasoning on what happened and has to happen ("It's only right - That I should go - And find myself - Before I go and ruin - Someone else"), focusing instead on his pain.
