  • Ben from LondonIS THAT ALL YOU CAN DO?! Sorry. But I think there's more Songfacts than "it's about waiting for something bad".
    COME ON! Does this song get ANY attention?
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnMy fave song - I just love the melody.
  • Cody from Wasilla, AkThis song is about waiting for so long to tell your special someone that you love them, and finally getting the chance.

  • Tara from Somewhere, Flthis song might be about going to Heaven also because he's like, "I've been waiting a LIFETIME for this moment to come..." and "Where I'm going if I get there at all..." and "Wake Up!" for waking up and you're not alive. and "Calling... don't let it catch you falling." So he won't go to hell.

    I don't know, I was just reading the lyrics and all of a sudden that poped into my head.
