"Life Left to Go" as written by and Douglas Hamilton Brown....
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Sometimes the edge serves
As more than a friend
Than you thought it would be
And the pages you write
In your journal each night
Are your only release

And the mask you put on
It?s like words in a song
But there's more to be seen
And the failures you see
Don't seem failures to me here at all

Oh, I'm begging you, no
There's more life left to go
Oh, I'm begging you, please
?Cause I don't want you to leave

Alone as you walk
Through a crowd and it?s awkward
Like nobody sees
And you can't help but wonder
Would anyone come after you
If you'd leave

So a pain grows inside
And a fear comes alive
Like you'll never be free
But there's no pain you feel
That I know love can't heal here at all

Oh, I'm begging you, no
There's more life left to go
Oh, I'm begging you, please
?Cause I, I don't want you to leave me

To leave me here on my own
There's nothing to run from
Oh, there's nothing but fear inside you
Oh, I just hope I can find you
And tell you that I know you'll smile again

Oh, I'm begging you, no
More life left to go
Oh, I'm begging you, please
?Cause I don't want you to leave

    General Commentit's about suicide and someone trying to stop someone from jumping
    "Sometimes the edge serves as more than a friend then you thought it would be" then the chorus "Oh I'm begging you no, there's more life left to go/Oh I'm begging you please, cause I don't want you to leave"

    pretty simple. and tragically beautiful instrumentals and use of a synthesizer. i love this song!

    General CommentIt's simple, yet so beautiful.
    Definitely about trying to stop someone from committing suicide.

    I love the line "and the failures you see, don't seem failures to me".
    This band never ceases to amaze me.

    My InterpretationTo me.. This song is representing all that my friends are trying to tell me. I have been abused in my life; sexually, verbally, physically... And this song is one that I found that is telling me to stay strong, that I have people behind me that will catch me if and when I fall. I have therapy every week and I listen to this song every time I start to think of hurting myself and it stops me before I do anything stupid.
