"Life in Color" as written by Brent Kutzle and Ryan Benjamin Tedder....
I do my best
To find some kind of glow
I'm givin' it some heart and soul, now
From the darkest grays
The sun bursts, clouds break
Yeah, we see that fire
From the streets of Babylon
To the road that we've been on now
The kaleidoscope claims another

Whoa oh oh oh
Well this is life in color (color)
Today feels like no other (other)
And the darkest grays
The sun bursts, clouds break

Whoa oh oh oh
Well this is life in motion (motion)
And just when I could run this race no more
The sun bursts, clouds break
This is life in color

You've seen my worst
Yet you see some hope in me
The black and white sets us free
Like the queen to the rook
Your decision is a sure thing
Honey yeah, a sure thing
No wonder I feel
Like I'm missing a heavy load
But no matter what daylight brings to us
We all know

Whoa oh oh oh
Well this is life in color (color)
Today feels like no other (other)
And the darkest grays
The sun bursts, clouds break

Whoa oh oh oh
Well this is life in motion (motion)
And just when I could run this race no more
The sun bursts, clouds break
This is life in color
This is life in color

This is life in color
Today feels like no other
And the darkest grays
The sun bursts, cloud breaks

Whoa oh oh oh
Well this is life in motion (motion)
Just when I could run this race no more
The sun bursts, cloud breaks
This is life in color
This is life in color

    General CommentI'm not exactly sure on the meaning exactly but the feeling I get from the song is that - or well the feeling you get when everything is starting to go right in life. Whether that's you begin a new relationship when you've been on a personal hiatus or just a better day than yesterday was.

    "Well this is life in color (color)
    Today feels like no other (other)
    And the darkest grays
    The sun bursts, clouds break"

    That moment when you get a break in your life and realize that THIS is how you're supposed to be living your life. That moment when all the colors shine a bit brighter, the sun is a bit brighter, - just that feeling.

    There's some mention regarding a relationship or maybe the beginning of one? I usually go off of what I feel when I listen to the song because OneRepublic is that great of a band to where there's no real 'concrete' meaning - it depends on whose listening to it.

    So with that said - this song reminds me of that feeling when you're in a valley in your life and something happens that elevates you to a peak. That feeling of just eye opening joy.
