"Go" as written by Diondria Elaine Thomas, Christopher Alan Thornton, Bryan Stephen Johnson and Mevin Riviere....
Little change of the heart, little light in the dark,
Little hope that you just might find your way out of here.
Cause you've been hiding for days, wasted and wasting away,
But I got a little hope today you'll face your fears.

Yea I know it's not easy, I know that it's hard,
Follow the lights to this city.

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
Don't look back just go.
Take a breath move along,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
You could spend your whole life holding on.

Believe the tunnel can end, believe your body can mend,
Yea I know you could make it through cause I believe in you.
So lets go put up a fight, lets go make everything alright,
Go on and take a shot go give it all you got.

Oh yea I know it's not easy, I know that it's hard,
Know that it's not always pretty.

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
Don't look back just go.
Take a breath move along,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
You could spend your whole life holding on.

Don't wanna wake up to the telephone ring,
Are you sitting down I need to tell you something,
Enough is enough you can stop waiting to breath,
And don't wait up for me.

Get up and go,
Take a chance and be strong,
You could spend your whole life holding on.
Don't look back just go,
Take a breath move along,
You could spend your whole life holding on.

Get up and go, take a chance and be strong,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
Don't look back just go.
Take a breath move along,
Or you could spend your whole life holding on,
You could spend your whole life holding on.

Don't spend your whole life holding on.

    General CommentThis song is about how time doesn't slow down, and you should leave some things behind like the past that hurts you, and keep other things like the friends you've come to know and love.

    The present and the past will affect your future. Try your hardest to make your future bright. Hold on to your dreams and keep moving forward with faith and confidence.

    Everyday you should become stronger. And learn new things. You never know what the future may have in store for you. Whether it be 20 years from now, or just tomorrow. Anything could happen.

    Just keep moving on. The whole point of this song is that you should keep moving forward and live your life. Don't be stuck in the past because it isn't coming back for you to fix it.

    There should be something pushing you to do your best and continue moving on, whether it be a dream, goal, or just something you wanna someday do.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who has been living in the past. Reliving something that’s happened in their life over and over again. They just can’t seem to let it go and move on. So in this song it tells them to be brave and just accept things as they are, even though it will be hard. They believe in that person to have the strength to pull through and see the light in the darkness. The person is obviously scared of leaving their little comfort zone of hiding away from whatever the problem is. They’re saying “Just try your best to forget it, it can only make you stronger or you’re going to end up wasting your life reliving something that can’t be changed. Believe in yourself that you can do it, believe that it can only get better from here on”. Then they’re saying “Okay, You need to stop avoiding it, you just need to get on with life, accept and forget what happened”.

    You can assume the song is about someone who is dealing with depression but is not fighting against it. However, I look deep into the lyrics and I think this...

    From my view, I see this song as a message from a loved one who has died, to someone they have left behind who are struggling to come to terms with it. They can see that they’re holding them back from life so they’re encouraging them to continue their lives because they still have so much to live for and that they shouldn’t dwell on the unfortunate things in life but should look forward with hope. I get this impression particularly from the lines ‘You can stop waiting to breathe / Don’t wait up for me’ saying “Don’t worry about me, you’re still alive so make the most of it” and also the line ‘Don’t wanna wake up to the telephone ring’, the idea of that ‘phone call’ that changes your life when you hear the news. Sad, yet a beautiful and inspirational song =]

    My OpinionMiNHaJ: It shows that you are too skeptical about what an artist makes. If it's a nice song then so be it. It doesn't HAVE to come from this or that.

    Anyway, back to the topic. If you ask me, this song is definitely about a person facing depression, a death, a loss, anything. This person can't face the truth.

    And this song is just reaching out to them, telling them that they have to move on, or they'll 'spend their whole life holding on'. Honestly I never expected this from BLG too but it's one of the sweetest songs I find on the album.

    Down to the point - this song is amazing. It reaches out to you in ways indescribable.

    Song MeaningI think there trying to tell us all not to live in the past,
    People change, things change, but life goes on.

    We can't hold on & that we have to move forward,
    He's basically telling us to have the courage :)

    General Commentthis song is him singing about himself thru the eyes of one of his parents. all other songs are about partying drinking getting trashed and hooking up. this one is his best view of how his parents see him.

    General CommentMartin (lead singer) lost one of his best friends from high school to suicide back in 2006. I think that has to do with this song. For instance:

    "Don't wanna wake up to the telephone ring
    Are you sitting down?"
