Lifehouse lead singer Jason Wade wrote this song. When we asked him in 2017
what it means to be "hanging by a moment," he replied: "I just feel like my whole life has been a series of moments where you're just trying to hold on and not get swept away. I grew up all over the place - I lived in Hong Kong for a couple of years. I didn't grow up with any roots really, so in my teenage years when I started to write songs to try to interpret the earlier half of my life, it seemed we were just constantly in turbulence and moving and changing and shifting. And from that point on, when I wrote that song, it took us on this crazy, wild adventure.
But, yeah, I would say it is about just trying to stay in the moment, stay present, and enjoy the moments as they're happening around you."
