"Reach For The Sun" as written by and Cody Michael/czap Payne....
Edited formatting.
I wrote a song about war, the kind that lives in your head.
I found a place I can sit, a place where everyday light hits.
Like the palm of your hand when you're reaching for something that's balled up in the sky.
That's the way I like to see myself; reaching for just one star at a time.

I heard what was a song inside the earth. I put my ear to the ground and I sang with every word.

See, I got lost in the sound.
It was the moment I felt sick, just when I needed it most.
There is not much to explain, except I found myself blinded by every bit of light.
I felt so safe inside the sight of the sun.
I really think I'm home now, I really think that.

I heard what was a song inside the earth.
I put my ear to the ground and I sang with every word.
I felt a wave so strong, I fell right in it.
It hit so hard and it took my spirit.
Know that I belong to you until I die.

I remember giving this a try

I screamed so loud, 'cause that's exactly how I felt.
It broke me out, and I gave up all my plans. I set them down, 'cause I really need to see the sun again.
Don't worry, 'cause I'll be fine.

    General Commentanother awesome song by them, makes me want to just reach for the sun haha. i think this song just has a lot to do with how AJ wasn't sure aboutp laying music for his life. he had a war about doing it or not doing it. but then, positivy hit him, thats what all the "light" is talking about. i think the positity just came from music in general. thats what the whole "song inside the earth" and "getting lost in the sound". i think when he says "you" he's talking about music, because he's going to do it for the rest of his life. also the "when i needed you most" part refers to the dark times when he needed music the most in his life but it just wasn't there, and then he figured out how much it gave him. this is an amazing song nad i listen to it atleast once everyday. it makes me think more and more everyday about playing music for my living because of what its done for me. those days when i dont want to go to band practice or am not pumped i listen to this and it helps me remember when im playing and why im doing it and it gives me the attitude back that i had when i first started. its truly amazing and im definitely going to start listening to this before every show i play so i remember why im playing. and if you're reading this and wondering why, its because God and music helped save me from my depression this year and 2 years ago when i wanted to kill myself. i want to help the people who struggle with that like music helped me.

    General CommentTo me this song is about this person going to a place where he could sit and just think about everything. Just sit and think about his/her life. It's about this person going through a really hard time and feeling like everything is breaking down. Until he/She finally finds that one thing that made him/her truly happy.
