"Real Life" as written by and Jesse Aaron Cohen Eric Michael Topolsky....
For a minute I was lost,
I looked away
For a minute I was lost,
I looked away.
I was looking for a home,
I was looking for a home.

For a minute I was lost,
I looked away
Trouble was, I was alone,
Trouble was, I was alone.

You might think I'm still that way,
It's only natural
It was a past life thing-
It was a past life thing-
It wasn't anything at all.

For a minute I was lost,
I looked away
For a minute I was lost,
I looked away.
I was looking for a road
I was looking for a road.

For a minute I was lost,
I looked away
My destination was unknown,
My destination was unknown.
My destination was unknown,
My destination was unknown.

You might think I'm still that way,
It's only natural
It was a past life thing-
It was a past life thing-
It wasn't anything at all.

Mes aloha
Mes aloha
Mes aloha
Mes aloha

Mes aloha
Mes aloha
Mes aloha
Mes aloha

Oh oh oh oh!
You might think I'm still that way,
It's only natural
It was a past life thing-
It was a past life thing-
It wasn't anything at all.

Oh oh oh oh!

    General CommentGreat song.

    These lyrics just relate, for me I think its about letting go of a past mistake/bad situation and realising your different now, or someone else realising.
    Tanlines are mainly about the fusion of those tribal like drums and beats and pop melodies, and this song works so well. The repitition, the build up. The ending is great, sometimes I think it sounds like 'Barcelona', but doubt it is.

    Anyone elses thoughts?
