"Augie Nieto" as written by and John / Ondrasik....
Augie Nieto's got a story to tell you
Though it's hard to hear him speak
He caught Lou Gehrig rounding third one day
Now he's happy as he'll ever be

He's running through the night
He'll die before he sleeps
Augie's found what I've been looking for

Augie Nieto can tell you he loves you
He's two wheels close to God
His captain Lynn sailing by his side
He'll never leave you lost

Though his arms can't squeeze you tight
He'll hold you when you sleep
Augie's found what I've been looking for

Hey yeah, hey yeah
Take it any way it goes
Hey yeah, hey yeah
Open up your never mind
Open up your mind

Augie Nieto has never been happier
You got to see to believe
He caught Lou Gehrig rounding third one day
Now he's carrying the whole team

It's not the breaths you take
It's how to breathe
Augie's found what I've been looking for

Augie's found what I've been looking for

    Song MeaningFirst off this is a beautiful song, one of my favorites off the album.

    But for the history, this song is dedicated to a man named Augie Nieto(go figure). He was a big fitness person who one day got ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. After being diagnosed he immediately funded an organization to one day hopefully find the cure.

    Now for the interpretation...

    i think for the part "He's running through the night, He'll die before he sleeps" means that he's putting all his time and effort to discover a cure, but will not be able to discover it quickly enough to save himself.

    and for the whole "Augie Nieto has never been happier" and "Now he's carrying the whole team" means that he thinks he got the horrible disease because he is the one to find a cure for it, and to help other who have it too.

    i dont know, thats just what i got from it.
