"Made For You" as written by Brent Kutzle and Ryan B Tedder....
One and two and three and four and
One and two and three and four and
One and two and three and four and
One and two and three and four

I was writing
Thinking with my long hand
Flippin' the paper
Everything was sinking
In start to wonder
How you gonna handle me?
When I'm under
Swimming in the dark sea

Everybody wants you to make
It's all yours
Everybody wants to take
It's all yours
Everybody wants you to make
It's all yours
Everybody wants to take it, t-t-t-take it

Can you feel all the love
Can you feel all the love?
Can you feel all the love
Can you feel all the love?
Like it was made for you!
Like it was made for you
Like it was made for you
It was made for you

Tell me something
Something that can move me
Don't tell me lies
I swear you're gonna lose me
Big like an ocean
Jealous of the fish it feeds
Your devotion
Swimming inside of me

Everybody wants you to make
It's all yours
Everybody wants to take
It's all yours
Everybody wants you to make
It's all yours
Everybody wants to t-t-t-take it
[Can you feel all the love
Can you feel all the love?
Can you feel all the love
Can you feel all the love?

Like it was made for you!
Like it was made for you
Like it was made for you
It was made for you

Can you feel
Can you feel?
Can you feel?

All the right friends in all the right places
All the right moves and all the right faces
All the right friends in all the right places
All the right moves and all the right faces
All the right friends in all the right places
All the right moves and all the right faces
All the right friends in all the right places
All the right moves and all the right faces

    General CommentThis is a fab opening track to the new album!

    It feels like it's written about fan reaction and how you can feel their adoration ('all their love') on stage when it's directed to them. The first verse describes the writing process of a songwriter and wondering how darker and more intense lyrics might be received ('how you gonna handle me?')

    I don't particularly like the choir ending, but I do like how it links to the following track.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about someone who became famous with very little work--perhaps an heir(ess) or model--and has let that fame get to his/her head. The ending, in particular, strikes me...the choir seems to be singing in an appraising way, like it was a great idol. Does the choir say, "We're going down," at the very end? If they do, it may suggest that the person falls from grace, or may be a forewarning to said person..."all that rises must fall" sort of deal.

    General CommentYes, now I know for a fact that the choir says "we're going down" after repeating the "all the right friends" stanza.

    Also, the lyrics are a little wrong...instead of, "In I start to wonder," shouldn't it be "THEN I start to wonder"? And after "How you gonna handle me?" it should say, "When I'm under / Swimmin' in the darkest sea." Also, I always thought it said, "Gettin' like an ocean," instead of "Big like an ocean."

    General CommentWhen I think of this song, I think of love. I think the message is to feel love like it was made for us as he keeps repeating through out the song. Who's there to take your love, to make the love(love in general, not sex) who can you trust-who won't lie and stab your back?, who's the right friend( a true friend), are you at the right place and with the right faces? and most inportantly can you, yourself feel love? Other than that this is a great song the choir is a little creepy when they start singing were going down. But I think it's awesome he's kind of reprising the song all the right moves. The songs in the album in general I think they're really giving you the intention to wake up (name of the album) and question yourself and see life from a different perspective which is something I love about one republic. They have like a spirituality in their music, not religious spiritual just soul searching type of spiritual.

    General CommentI think it's about someone who is being pressured into doing something they should do, but they are reluctant to make the decision. Plus the piano is EPIC.

    General CommentDoes anyone else feel like this has any political undertones? Maybe this is just how I interpret it, but maybe they are insinuating that President Obama has
    "all the right friends in all the right places" and
    "all the right moves in all the right spaces."

    Think about it:
    "Everybody wants you to make
    Its all yours
    Everybody wants to take
    Its all yours
    Everybody wants you to make
    Its all yours
    Everybody wants to T-t-t-take it"

    A lot of Americans wanted Obama to win, thus "Everybody wants you to make it."
    "It's all yours," means, the power is all his.

    "Everybody wants to take it,
    it's all yours."
    means everybody wants the power, but it's all his.

    "Tell me something
    Something that can move me
    Dont tell me lies
    I swear your gonna lose me"

    The voter is asking Obama to tell him something that will make him want to vote for him. He warns him, don't lie to me, or else I won't vote for you.

    It's a little out there, but that's what I think of this.
