94 Hours

Album: Frail Words Collapse (2003)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Tim Lambesis told us that "94 Hours" might be the most misinterpreted As I Lay Dying song. He explains: "That song comes from a life experience of mine but was written to cover a topic that everyone faces. Sometimes we don't know how beautiful something is until we lose it. The song is not a big sad story about loss though. It comes from my perspective as someone who has been forgiven with a second change. In fact the song is very positive because it reminds me to hold onto the greatest blessing that I have." (learn more at asilaydying.com)
