Sat upon your bed,
You've said the things you've said
And I cannot believe that you seem so naive
We exchanged our poetry,
You seem to think a lot like me
I'll guess I'll just assume that we could talk about most anything

Then I ask have you ever felt abandoned?
Felt so lost that you were stranded,
Just like all the walls are closing in
And you were left inside
Have you ever felt like your days were numbered?
Stuck under a tree in thunder
Seems to be no way out!
But there is One when in doubt!!!

Ready for another day!
Slowly watch yah waste away,
Havin' fun, bein' cool
Like we did in high school,
Elementary romance feelin' nervous at the dance,
Crack a smile hold it down,
Whatever the circumstance,
Sex, Drugs, Hadda be cool,
All the things we learned in school,
Typical teenage machines,
Anyone tell me what this means?
I could learn, I could try,
Never really had an alibi
Wish I did, that’s no lie

(chorus)
And you ask why
When you feel like you could fly
Gotta know I got the answer for yah baby,
Drives yah crazy it's not over
So much more to life then this, why?
When you feel like you could fly
Gotta know I got the answer for yah baby,
Drives yah crazy it's not over
So much more to life then this

Things seem so hallucinary,
In the corners of my mind they scare me,
I know yah never meant to desert me,
Just like yah never really meant to hurt me


Then I ask have you ever felt abandoned?
Felt so lost that you were stranded,
Just like all the walls are closing in
And you were left inside
Have you ever felt like your days were numbered?
Stuck under a tree in thunder
Seems to be no way out!
But there is One when in doubt!!!

(chorus)

So much more to life than this!!!

    General CommentThis song is great. It's the first TFK song i heard before i started listening to them. This is definitely one of my motivation songs. It reminds me that I am NOT of this world, and wutever the world has to offer me will never be the answer to true happiness and fulfillment. It reminds me, that God is the only way, truth and life, and that without him, I would be nothing! =)

    General CommentSince 'One' is capitalized in the official lyrics,This does say that someone is talking to his friend about the one (Jesus). And yes, He is the answer.

    General Commentgreat song. it seems that it is about someone he got close with and he realized how naive that person by what they had said and they did all these things in high school to be cool and they felt trapped but he told them that there was more to life than that, that there is Jesus.

    General CommentThis is a great song by a great band. All of their songs are good though(I think) they are also really good to hear live. I've been to 2 of their concerts in the coolest(ha) city in all of Ontario-PETERBOROUGH!(that's my home town and where TFK are from yay) They are also REALLY nice guys to talk to(one of my best friends and I met them at their one concert that was held at a club in our town and got all sorts of stuff it was awesome:)) but yeah...listen to some of their other songs too they are good. Even a lot of my friends whom are into the whole "ghetto" music like TFK as well because they mix punk with rock with hiphop yet are a Christian band and don't really swear...so yeah...listen to TFK and support PTBO's best band!!!!!!

    General CommentYeah, it seems to be growing up and comming out of the bubble that school places around kids. He starting to ask some deeper, philosophical questions and realizing that what he has in his life is not satisfying these questions. This doesn't say anything about Jesus, it just says that what he had inside is bubble was not everything that life is.

    General Commenti think this song is about a person just getting to kno someone and realizing that they think very alike so he asks them if they ever felt abandoned and lost, and tells them that there is a way out, jesus is the answer!!!
