"Wherever You Will Go" as written by Alex Band, Aaron Kamm Kamin and Oliver Hutterer....
So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone you'll need love to light the shadows on your face
If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then between the sand and stone, could you make it on your own

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
A way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you through the darkest of your days
If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then I hope there's someone out there who can bring me back to you

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

Run away with my heart
Run away with my hope
Run away with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart, in your mind, I'll stay with you for all of time

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

If I could turn back time, I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine, I'll go wherever you will go
I'll go wherever you will go

    My OpinionThis is such a brilliant song - I've always loved the song but not the video by The Calling. I thought the lyrics had such a deeper meaning than girl discovering her boyfriend has cheated on her. Like others say here this is more versatile to even be played at a funeral. For me this song just makes me remember about the important things in life. Like what I want to be remembered for when I have gone and also even for the people I might leave behind. The only thing i would change from the original version is that the Charlene Soraia Version did a lot more for the lyric content, But it sounds better sung by Alex Band.

    General CommentThis song is just awesome... It truly is one of the best songs on the cd. (Another good one is Adrienne) When there's just that person you feel so deeply about, you'd do anything to follow them. And once you lose that person, you go to the ends of the earth to be with them... but all the while they don't appreciate you... and you continue to love them and don't want to see what you should be seeing- that they don't want you anymore...

    General CommentApparently the writer of the lyrics was talking about someone dying, leaving a loved one behind. The dying person wants to make sure the one continuing to live will be alright, and will do anything and go anywhere to stay together. I love this song but it makes me sad; it reminds me of how mortal we are and the pain of death separating people.

    General CommentThis song is just about unconditional love in general...It could be about a mother having to say goodbye to her children as they go off on their own.

    It could even be about somebody who's dying telling the person they love that they love them, no matter what. Hence the line : "If I could turn back time, I'll go wherever you will go"

    My InterpretationI think the song is about the speaker passing away and leaving a loved one behind. The speaker clearly wants the loved one to find love again after him/her.

    Or it could be about leaving behind a loved one in pursuit of a different life path.
