Steven

Album: From The Depths Of Dreams (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • This song tells the story about the death of a boy named Steven. It's not exactly clear what he died of, but the lyrics, "November 10th, a cold dark night, you could tell that something wasn't right" are probably an allusion to suicide or an accident. The song tells of everyone's loss ("A friend lost a friend, a brother lost a brother, a mother lost a son") but hints that he's never truly gone.

  • Jessica from Irving, TxThe song is about a friend of the band who's name is Steven. He died on November 10 in a car accident when he was 18. It says how everyone came together to celebrate Steven's new life and how Steven's death sparked the fear of death in his loved ones. It also says that no matter what Steve will be with his friends and family.
  • Manny from Green Lane , PaCome to think about it when's "Still Searching" the lyrics off that cd gonna be on?
