"Life Starts Now" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Barry Stock....
You say you feel so down
Every time I turn around
And you say you should've been gone by now
And you, you think that everything's wrong
You ask me how to carry on
We'll make it through another day just hold on.

'Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

I hate to see you fall down
I'll pick you up off of the ground
I've watched the weight of your world come down
And now it's your chance to move on
Change the way you've lived for so long
You find the strength you've had inside all along.

'Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

All this pain
Take this life and make it yours.
All this hate
Take your heart and let it love again.
You will survive this somehow.

Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow,
And you're so far down.
Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow,
And you're so far down.
Life starts now.

    General CommentWhere it says
    "And find the strength you haven't sought all along"

    It's actually supposed to be
    "And find the strength you've had inside all along"

    General Commentthe lyrics "You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and your so far down
    But you will survive it somehow because Life Starts Now" really speak to me.

    its probably the most meaningful song on the album to me.

    It really makes you think.
    Again, another flawless track.

    General Comment"Who owns the problem?" We must identify and accept the choices that have shaped our lives. Once we take on the responsibility of owning our problems, then we can work through them. Being born again through change- LIFE STARTS NOW!

    General CommentI think it's obvious why they chose this as the title track for the CD, it's just one of Three Days Grace's beset songs in my opinion.
    I think the song is in general about making a new start in life.

    Song MeaningLife Starts Now, the Song, is too me, about getting over an addiction that ruined one's life, and in this case, its a drug addiction, and getting over it and coming back stronger and restarting everything you ruined in your recklessness. My opinion.

    General CommentBand is reaching out to all those people who are kinda depressed and their thoughts are self harmful... in the process singer is giving them strength to carry on...

    And you think that everything's wrong,
    You ask me how to carry on,
    We'll make it through another day, just hold on.

    Cause Life Starts Now
    You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and your so far down
    But you will survive it somehow because Life Starts Now
