"Motions" as written by and Matthew Joseph/mizell West....
This might hurt, it's not safe
But I know that I've gotta make a change
I don't care if I break,
At least I'll be feeling something
'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?

No regrets, not this time
I'm gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love make me whole
I think I'm finally feeling something
'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of this life

Cause I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?

Take me all the way (take me all the way)
Take me all the way ('cause I don't wanna go through the motions)
Take me all the way (I know I'm finally feeling something real)
Take me all the way

I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?

I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?

Take me all the way (take me all the way)
Take me all the way (I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go)
Take me all the way (through the motions)
Take me all the way

I don't wanna go through the motions

    My InterpretationNo comments for this song yet?

    I think this can be interpreted in two ways: First, the way I think West was trying to make it; about being in communication with God/Christ... 'I don't wanna go one more day, without Your all consuming passion inside of me'. (Notice the capitalization of 'Your'; it's definitely talking about God/Christ) ... 'Cause just okay is not enough, help me fight through the nothingness of this life'. (I'm not Christian; I don't honestly prefer this interpretation but some people really are that passionate about their faith)

    The second interpretation I think applies to this particular song is about, like every second other song, love. Could be interpreted that the song's about going through the 'motions' of falling in love with a particular someone; disagreements, overcoming problems, etc, so that you can stay with that someone. Again, the 'I don't wanna go one more day, without your all consuming passion inside of me' line fits; the feeling of knowing someone doesn't love you can have you not wanting to live another day. ... 'No regrets, not this time, I'm gonna let my heart defeat my mind, Let your love make me whole, I think I'm finally feeling something': The devotion to making this person decide you're their 'someone' causing you to cast aside all doubt and risk ('let my heart defeat my mind') and the feeling of loving someone more than anyone else before them ('I think I'm finally feeling something')

    Just my interpretations.
