"In This Life" as written by and Chantal Kreviazuk....
Let me show you what I'm made of
Good intentions are not enough
To get me though today and this life.
You're in the basement watching the TV,

I'm on the second floor watching the ceiling.
We sleep underneath the same big sky at night.
I dream the same dream we can fly
You can run from me

You can hide form me
But I am right beside you
In this life.
Let me tell you who you really are

You're my comfort
You're not a superstar
I can reach up and bring you back down to the ground
And give you everything you dream about

You can run from me
You can hide from me
But I am right beside you
In this life.

I'll give you all the things that I never get
Give you all I have and have no regret
Take you to the places that I've never been
Forgive you all the things that you can't forget

Take away the pain with my healing hands
Wash away your sins and set your spirit free
You can run from me
You can hide from me

But I am right beside you
In this life.
Let me show you what I'm made of

    General CommentWow.. first comment on such a lovely song.
    Okay, well I think this song is about someone who is just really stubborn and wants to hide away from the world because they don't want to deal with the problems in their life. But Chantal tries to be a comforting friend by telling that person that no matter what, she'll always be by their side and take away their pain. For some reason I think that the relationship between these two people are mother and son.

    General CommentHeh, this song is SO about Chantal's husband, Our Lady Peace's Raine Maida. I mean, come on "You're my comfort, not a superstar?"

    Awesome song though. Perfect for any relationship where your SO is messed up, your relationship is messed up, but you love them anyway and want to fix it all for them.

    General Commenti have loved this song ever since i first hear it in saved!
    i dont really know anything about Chantal, but from what i can tell its just a song about how like Katouz said, two messed up people in one messed up relationship trying to fix two messed up lives.

    General Commentwell.
    my dad and i argue a lot, and this describes our relationship perfectly.
    he always thinks he's right and is so arrogant...
    but i still love him and just want to bring him back down to earth and talk to him as a real person, and not when he's putting on his "perfect" front.

    General CommentI'm feeling that Lindsay. It actually does sound like a parent child relationship.
    I was thinking mother daughter you know.
    But in general parent-child fo sho.
