"My Life" as written by Eric Weaver, Kevin Dorr, Patrick Quave and Anthony Mccoy....
I find myself in question again
And I doubt this Love you've given to me
I hope you understand when I say
I need this time to myself
You speak your mind to me again
You force your words so deep within
You try to tell me how to live
But it's my life
I know your open arms too well
Cause I've lost myself there many times before
I need to slowly fall away
Far from the grip you have on me
You speak your mind to me again
You force your words so deep within
You try to tell me how to live
But it's my life
I find these words were never true
I've lost all my respect for you
I need to find my own way
It's my life
I gotta get away
One step away
I gotta get away
Just one step away
I gotta away you're pushing me away
I gotta get away
Well I'm gone

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who has to get out of a relationship because the girl is forcing too much shit on him

    General Commentyea I agree with everyone on this one!!, hes saying that he needs to get out of the relationship he is/was in because shes being controlling, and when he does get away, he ends up falling for her again, but this time he's fed up and thats what it means to me when he says "it;s My Life"

    General CommentI also agree with everyone. I really love this song and can relate to it........only,
    not in a relationship problem. Well,
    actually, kind of. I've had a lot of trouble with my moms freind
    and I've been wanting to tell him that its
    my life

    General Commenti read from other posts in the other threads about this band being a Christian band and having songs related to that topic. I'm doubtful whether they are really Christian, but i think this song could be related to that topic too. The Love ( i dunno why it was written in caps in the lyrics ) probably refers to love from God. The speaking of mind and forcing of words could probably refer to the guilt he feels when he doesn't do what is considered right in Christianity. And Christianity has it's 'rules' if u wanna call it that, so that's what he means by 'u tell me how to live'. And he goes 'but it's my life' when he rejects all of that, maybe being unable to continue a Christian life.
    Open arms is the open arms of God, always willing to accept you as long as u accept him. He's been there many times before and got lost in the sense that he tries to going back to Christianity and leading a right life but has failed many times, and once again he shows rejection to it all and wants to break from the grip. The chorus then shows his rejection and maybe resentment. The last part also.

    General CommentJust simply stating that 12 IS a Christian band and that MatthewPNG's meaning is mostly correct i think
