Got A Feeling

Album: Black Out the Sun (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This old-school '80s rocker encapsulates Black Out The Sun's themes of aging and the changing world. Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon explained in our 2013 interview: "We were able to let go on this album, so we weren't afraid to write the softer song 'Got a Feeling,' to a heavy song, 'Till Death.' And I think it definitely reflects the age that we are and the things that we've gone through in life. The lyrics to 'Got a Feeling,' I don't think I'll be happy until it's completely over. It's a different way of saying, 'Hey, I'm happy now, but I don't think that we'll honestly truly be happy, at least we've been told, until we are in Heaven.' So that's just a little throwback on that."
