"Life Is Sweeter" as written by and Joshua Havens Matt Fuqua....
My heart is giving up
All my plans are broken
Your face is all I see
Though my world is falling
As I watch you head into the sun
I never thought it was my one
Chance to say goodbye
I never want to say goodbye

Life is sweeter, sweeter
On the other side, on the other side
I will see you, see you
On the other side, on the other side
I'll fight the stars to let me through
I'll find a way to get to you
Life is sweeter on the other side of here

So far from where you are
But I feel you with me
You're in the place where I belong
Where my life is waiting

As I watch the rising of the sun
I pray that I could have just one
Chance to say goodnight
I never wanna say goodbye

Life is sweeter, sweeter
On the other side, on the other side
I will see you, see you
On the other side, on the other side
I'll fight the stars to let me through
I'll find a way to get to you
Life is sweeter on the other side of here

Everyday, I get a little bit closer to reaching you
But I can't wait till I'm with you forever

Everyday I get a little bit closer to reaching you
But I can't wait till I hold you forever

Life is sweeter, sweeter
On the other side, on the other side
I will see you, see you
On the other side, on the other side
I'll fight the stars to let me through
I'll find a way to get to you
Life is sweeter on the other side of here
On the other side of here

    My InterpretationVerse 1:
    "My heart is giving up
    All my plans are broken
    Your face is all I see
    Though my world is falling, As I watch you head into the sun, I never thought it was my one, Chance to say goodbye, I never want to say goodbye"

    I think this verse is talking about how life is getting rough, and how life is falling apart. The thought of suicide is here, hence "I never thought it was my one, Chance to say goodbye, i never want to say goodbye" and your not ready to say goodbye

    Chorus
    "Life is sweeter, sweeter, On the other side, on the other side, I will see you, see you, On the other side, on the other side, I'll fight the stars to let me through, I'll find a way to get to you, Life is sweeter on the other side of here"

    The chorus is talking about over whatever is keeping you down on the other side , life is a whole lot better. Its saying that God will find a way to help you through as long as you let him "I'll fight the stars to let me through, I'll find a way to get to you"

    Verse 2a:
    "So far from where you are, But I feel you with me, You're in the place where I belong, Where my life is waiting"

    This part of the verse i think says you feel so far away from God yet you can feel him with you. The second part is talking about how God is in the place where you belong and hes coming to bring you there with him where the rest of your life is waiting to be fulfilled

    Verse 2b:
    "As I watch the rising of the sun, I pray that I could have just one, Chance to say goodnight, I never wanna say goodbye"

    As you watch your life fall apart you pray to God to just have one chance to say goodbye and get things over with

    Verse 3a:
    "Everyday, I get a little bit closer to reaching you, But I can't wait till I'm with you forever"

    Everyday you feel that your getting closer to God, and you cant wait to be with him forever

    Verse 3b:
    "Everyday I get a little bit closer to reaching you, But I can't wait till I hold you forever"

    Everyday you feel closer to God and you cant wait for God to hold you forever

    Review:
    *This song is about suicide and no matter how much life sucks, life is sweeter on the other side of this. Keep your faith in God and never let him go. "I'll fight the stars to let me through, I'll find a way to get to you" God will fend off anyone he can just to get you back in shape and to help you

    Other thoughts:
    If you know someone who is suicidal, the best thing you can do is be there for them, pray with them, talk with them. Let them know they are not alone. The world is cruel, the world destroy's lives. The world is the devils handy work. We as christians must not let others fall, but when they do we help them up. One should never be left alone, God will fight for his children, and he will win as long as we let him.

    For those who have the suicidal thoughts, find someone you can trust, an adult would be the best choice. If its a teen, make sure its one you can trust with your life. Pray and continue praying, and keep listening. God is there even in the darkest times. He will always be there, no matter how much you cry out to him and seem to never get an answer. Make sure you are listening because he may be calling back. Read the bible at least once a day.
