"Lonely Wheel" as written by and Alex Aponti Jay Vilardi....
In that room where you sit
Where you live
I know it's good to you
God, I know it's good to you
In your fear where you lay
Where you think
It eases all the pain
All the pain of what you made

One last night at the lonely wheel
One last taste of the sin we feel
One hope in the fear
That drives us on
One last drink just to kill the pain
One last breath
Before I say your name
I'm giving into you

If you could see in me
There is all you want
There is all you want
If you would just give in
It will get easier, it will get easier
(If you just give in it would...)

I get it, I need to fall
I get it, I need to call
Me and who I are so in the way
Me and who I am,
We are so in the way

    General CommentI think this song is about getting over emotional pain and surrendering our lives to God.

    The first verse talks about how you can feel safe right where you are, in your room.

    One last night at the lonely wheel (drive to ease the pain.)
    One last taste of the sin we feel (sin to feel better)

    One hope in the fear
    That drives us on
    (I am not too sure about this line, the fear that drives us on may be death, we don't want to die, so we cling onto this life.)

    One last drink just to kill the pain (drinking to forget life)
    One last breath (one last of ME before I give into God's plan.)

    Jesus speaking:
    If you could see in me
    There is all you want
    There is all you want
    If you would just give in
    It will get easier, it will get easier
    (If you just give in it would...)

    Singer:
    I get it, I need to fall
    I get it, I need to call
    Me and who I are so in the way
    Me and who I am,
    We are so in the way

    Paul says in Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. It is not I who live, but Christ who lives in me."

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship with a girl that is not necessarily a christian and he tries to help her through all her struggles. He ends up giving in to her wrong ways of life instead of showing her the way of christ. The relationship is bringing his faith down. that's just my take on it.

    General Commenthave you ever heard that one song about where the girl tells Jesus to take the wheel? like of her life. I think this song is about a dude who needs to change and knows that its lonely, him driving his own life. But every time he goes to change, he falls back in, and says "just one more time" but never actually changes.

    General CommentI believe this song is about just being a sinner. I think it is a comparison between drinking and sinning.

    "One last night at the lonely wheel
    One last taste of the sin we feel
    One hope in the fear
    That drives us on
    One last drink just to kill the pain
    One last breath
    Before I say your name
    I'm giving into you"

    This chorus really speaks to me as it is just what we all tell ourselves. We plead with ourselves that this is the last time we will give into our addictions but we just end up giving in and leave ourselves broken.

    "If you could see in me
    There is all you want
    There is all you want
    If you would just give in
    It will get easier, it will get easier"

    now this I like believe that it is talking about the lies that our addictions tell us, saying that they are all we need; all we want. I also think the last line refers to how not only we are promised things will get easier or better when we sin but also how the more we give in to sin and go against our convictions the easier it is for us to fall into the same hole; as if the hole gets deep each time we tap into it.

    "I get it, I need to fall
    I get it, I need to call
    Me and who I are so in the way
    Me and who I am,
    We are so in the way "

    This last part is just about falling down and realizing that we are the ones who are at fault. he screams that 'me and who I am are so in the way', which refers to the fact that our human nature is in the way of gods plan.

    I love The Almost soo much, Aaron is my role model. He is just so full of God's spirit and is trying to show everyone what the love of God really is. He sings with such raw emotion that the songs that he has written have just moved me when I am going through tough times. The way he can capture the way we feel as christian sometimes just leaves me awestruck.
