"Suddenly" as written by and Soraya Lamilla....
She feels lost in her life
Treading water just to keep from slipping under
And she wonders if she's where she's supposed to be
Tired for trying to do it right
Her dreams are just to far away to see how steps she's making
Might be taking her to who she'll be

And suddenly it isn't what it used to be
And after all this time it worked out just fine
And suddenly I am where I'm supposed to be
And after all the tears I was supposed to be here

She feels locked in her own life
Scared of what she might lose if she moves away from who she was
And she's afraid of being free
There's a way she knows is right
She can't feel the things she knows
And so each step she's taking is a step of faith toward who she'll be


And here where the night is darkest black
She feels the fear and the light is farthest back
And through her tears she can't see the dawn is coming
Skies will clear and the light will find her where she's always been.

    General Commentkinda surprised no one has commented on this...but anyways:

    To me, it's about a girl (maybe late teens early twenties) who's going through a very tough time in her life, and is wondering why things are going so bad. Then, "suddenly" she realizes that everything she's going through or has gone through wasn't for nothing and there was truly a reason for it. i dunno, that's my take on it

    General CommentLove this song can't believe it only has 2 comments!
    I can relate to this song so much atm. Everything's happening that i don't want to happen, but i'm slowly realising that this is what's meant to be happening in my life.
