"Find Yourself" as written by John Patrick Jozef Willy Van Noten, Michel L. Clerx, Bob J. Sandee and Joris Van Dijk....
Drawn into the backdrop here
You could fade, you could fade away
Bright lights on a starless night
Burn a hole in the dying day

Looking at life through a loaded gun
Take your best shot, aim it at the sun
Looking at life through a loaded gun
You know you’ll find

You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself alone
You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself

Drawn into the darkness here
With your eyes on the prize at stake
Faint hearts on an endless path
Letting go of the ones we break

Looking at life through a loaded gun
Take your best shot, aim it at the sun
Looking at life through a loaded gun
You know you’ll find

You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself alone
You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself

Drawn into the backdrop here
You could fade, you could fade away
Bright lights on a starless night
Burn a hole in the dying day

Looking at life through a loaded gun
Take your best shot, aim it at the sun
Looking at life through a loaded gun
You know you’ll find

You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself alone
You’ll find yourself
You’ll find yourself

    My InterpretationI think this song is about trying your best in life, even after a relationship has ended. Keep trying and you will be able to find your way in life on your own.

    My InterpretationThis is about looking at life through a loaded gun, like a bullet, as if you're ready to strike at any moment.

    Relevant phrases:

    "faint hearts on an endless path letting go of the ones we break"

    It took me a while to realize that "ones" in this refers to previous hearts that were broken as a result of the bullet, that the bullet is on an endless path piercing one heart after another. "faint" meaning they're distant until the bullet hits them.

    "drawn in to the darkness here with your eyes on the prize at stake"

    The darkness is the target, or the prize, which is someone's heart.

    "Looking at life through a loaded gun"

    A "loaded gun" is ready to strike and hurt at any moment. It's a metaphor for living life under the assumption that everyone around you is the enemy thus evoking permanent defensiveness.

    "Take your best shot, aim it at the sun"

    No idea what this means.

    "you'll find yourself alone"

    Literally a life like this is lonely. It's like being a bullet in the chamber of a gun. There's always one bullet in the chamber, alone but ready to strike.

    "Drawn into the backdrop . . . burn a hole in the dying day"

    No idea what this means. I'll update when I understand that part better. I absolutely love Sarah Howell's voice, particularly in this song. It's yet another thing that helps keep this song relevant even after a ridiculous number of listenings. Add to it the fact that it's a bit of a puzzle wrapped into a song. I know this isn't new but the fact that it's part of such a fantastic song, sung by someone with such an amazing voice makes the song tremendously addicting.
