I Lived Lyrics

Hope when you take that jump,
You don't feel the fall.
Hope when the water rises,
You built a wall.

Hope when the crowd screams out
It's screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love
And it...

    I think that the mensage of the music is that you have to be brave,enjoy your time in earth, no mather how many time you have here. The person has to have courage and hope that the other day will be better.

    I think this song wants to say to you that you should live as many things as possible so that when you're older you'll remember all the things that you lived, all the emotions you felt fully and you won't regret letting your life pass without enjoying it..

    I think it means that we can´t expect life to be perfect or painless, but as long as we can move past our problems and make the most of the good moments, we´ll be okay in the end..

    I thought of it more as a suicidal song saying try your hardest dont do it. Say i lived after going through hard times! You can do it!!

    I think it means we should take the risks, and feel the pain, but from that pain we get the best experiences and in all, we live through it all and we can say we've done it all and felt pure emotions. (:

    Life doesn't stop for anyone. And when yours day comes(Death)you'll be able to say...I Lived.And How you did some of the craziest things and how you had Heart-breaks but that didn't stop you from enjoying life, the songs also explains how you have to make every second of your life worth it, it doesn't matter where and when, you just have to make sure of it.

    The narrarator is explaining he lived for thrill, no matter the consequences, and one day, when he dies, they remember all the extreme and dangerous things he has done, and rememnpber he lived. Through all his courage, no matter how painful it is to say he had died, that he lived a full life, and used every single second to his benefit. He wasted no time.
