  • Lyrics
  • Written by Sam Tate, Annie Tate and Dave Berg, this song is about a homeless man and a guy who is going to commit suicide until the homeless man shows him that there is more to live for. The moral is that no matter who you are you can make a huge difference in the world. >>

  • Lorraine from Grande Prairie, AbI'm doing a project on hope through music. I chosse this song because I think it reminds us to never lose hope when we want to jump off a bridge. But also hope for the beggar who even though his in a difficult situation can and did do amasing things.
  • Maddie from Wichita, KsI've been a dancer for years, and this was my ballet song last year. I'd never really paid attention to the lyrics until my brother said something about it. It's so sad, yet so beautiful!
  • Catherine from Redlands, CaWhen this song came out I was homeless at the time and the part where it talks about would anyone miss me when i die really got to me because that was exactly how i was feeling too. So i thought maybe i'm not the only person that feels like this somedays
  • Steve from St.petersburg, Flthis song was written for me it is the way I have felt so many times, and everytime I get close to stepping off my bridge something allways pulls me back and slaps me in the face,I just hope that I allways get that slap in the face, a freind turned me on to this song just yesterday and I was seriously considering takeing that final step of my bridge,

  • Landon from Winchester, OhBut I forgot to mention something. The bass drummer, Patrick Bourque, died late in 2007 while the rest of the band was on tour. Lead singer Brad Mates ruled the death as a suicide. If they really came up with a song like Moments, a homeless man saving a young man from jumping off of a bridge, isn't it more than just a little ironic that one of the band members would end it that way?
  • Landon from Winchester, OhAt first, the song sounded a little strange to me. But one day I listened to the words and found a powerful message. A homeless man stopped a young man from jumping off a bridge. That says that we all have our moments, even when things look so bleak.
  • Jess from Harrisburg, PaThis song is amazing!
