"Purify" as written by and Jody Quine Garrett Schwartz....
I cannot fight against myself
No more
Self destruction that I predicted
Not a long time ago

Petrified

Thoughts so far from me

The power of my justice blows me away
It's just the case to repeat
What I've never said to you before

Celebrate
I'm alive again

You don't expect from me
This chain reaction
You can't imagine from me
This great affection

See the structure of my pride
Wasn't easy to build it away from this
I never walked away from you
I never walked alone

A pleasure makes me vibe again tonight
I'm just thinking how fine it is to feel myself so fine again

Celebrate
I'm alive again

It's time to turn the page and start
And then
Don't you think that it's time
To convince yourself it's over?

Celebrate
I'm alive again

    General CommentBeautiful song.

    Personally I think it's about someone who have finally ended a relationship that hasn't been working for a long time. It's never easy to dump someone, and especially if you've been together for a long time. When you do, everything falls apart, but you realise that is was the right thing to do.

    That's my interpretation anyway.

    General CommentWe all make mistakes. Therefore, we should learn from them. What if we keep making the same mistakes over and over again. How do we live dealing with the same consequences continuously? And do we really want to live after so long? This song, in my eyes, sees the reality of accepting the fact that you aren't perfect, and life must go on.

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful and enchanting peices of art I have ever heard. It sounds so beautiful, it is visible. The enchanting, yet haunting vocals of Christina, and Andrea are so moving, I am constantly swept off my feet.

    General CommentOne of my favourite LC songs.
    I think it's about someone that has always pretended that his or her life is perfect, lying to him/herself and everyone else. But then something happens that makes him/her crack and realise that things aren't always what they seem.

    General Comment"Wasn't easy to build it away from this"
    Showing how hard it is to start building your life from scratch,away from whatever it was that tore it down in the first place

    'I never walked away from you"
    Somekind of relationship from which you can never really cut loose

    "Don't you think that it's time to convince yourself it's over?"
    Realising in the end that you can't hold on to something forever,especially when it no longer exists

    'Celebrate I'm alive again"
    The great feeling you get from finally moving on with your life and letting go of the past

    I love this song

    General CommentHeh, I'm the opposite of you people. I actually think it's about the beginning of a relationship with someone (romantic or otherwise).

    I think it's about meeting someone with whom you share a deep connection, and who gives you comfort and strength to face life. When you meet someone like that, you realize that you were never truly unaware of them, you were just waiting for them to fill a gap in your life that is only apparent in retrospect. When you finally know this person, you realize that you've "never walked alone," they just didn't enter your life until later.

    I really think this song is about feeling bonded to another person

    General Commentha funny how easy it is to connect this song. I love Cristina's voice during the chorus.

    It's about the ending of an unhealthy relationship...or at least the outcome of it was turning nasty/unhealthy. The first few lines indicate how the individual has lost who they were in this relationship and saying or doing things they never predicted they would do. However, once one realizes that the power to keep who they are lies inside them, it's quite overwhelming yet a simple change...and sometimes in order to do that, the only cure is to let go of the person that turned you into this monster. The chorus explains rebuilding oneself without the one they love.

    It hurts but...in the end it's worth it if this relationship fucks you up royally enough. btw when I say "relationship"...it can be anything. Not just the "in love dating" type thing. ha.

    Sorry if any of you feel that I totally misinterpretated this song. ha
