Chasing the Sun Lyrics

I'm better
So much better now
I see the light, touch the light,
We're together now

I'm better
So much better now
Look to the skies, give me life
We're together now

We've only just begun
Hypnotised by drums
Until forever...

    I think it's about a couple of lovers or old friends, and they share this passion for freedom. But in the beginning of the "story", this guy was trapped (maybe imprisoned, or grounded, or just felt confined somehow)and suddenly the friend/partner came and s/he felt light.

    Also, it could be about young love, where they are stubborn, curious, and adventurous. The term "chasing the sun" would be like chasing your dreams.
    "We've only just begun, hypnotized by drums" would be like hypnotized with the newness of life, where you just felt so... YOUNG and FREE and you think you can do anything.

    "They said this day wouldn't come, we refused to run" would be that they relied on themselves and didn't care what others thought.

    "And now it feels so amazing, can see it coming and we'll never grow old again" would be that ecstatic feeling when you feel so FREE.

    I really like this song, I've always craved for freedom with a Someone (not necessarily a lover) and find this song very inspiring and relating to everything I've always dreamed off.

    And I like the part "CHASING THE SUN" it has this... AMAZING feeling to it, it's like a dream but it felt so real.

    That's what I think anyway :)

    Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? kindly contact the vampire kingdom whatsApp at +1 602 962 0326 or on their email vampiretemple10@gmail.com

    I'm kind of surprised by the Christian interpretations. This meaning may not have been meant by "The Wanted," but in world history, there are many acts of human sacrifice when people practiced in worshipping the sun. Many people would even sacrifice their own children to ensure a long and prosperous life.

    "How could anyone sacrifice their own children," someone may ask. They were literally hypnotized by drums until they gave their children away to be sacrificed.

    So the lines that say:

    We've only just begun,
    Hypnotized by drums,
    Until forever comes,
    You'll find us chasing the sun

    has a huge part in child sacrifice. Like I said, 'The Wanted' probably has no idea of this bit of history, and neither did the 'Ice Age' staff, but it is something to consider.

    To me, it's about how by accepting Jesus (the light) it's possible to fulfill your dreams. You'll always want to be better at what you do. They said this day wouldn't come--means people didn't think they would succeed. Doesn't seem like a love song. The Wanted themselves said it has many interpretations, like partying all night but still wanting to chase your dreams when the sun comes up.

    Since the video is about vampires, I think it's about how the vampires bit them... They are now vampires so they live forever "until forever comes" and vampires can't go in the sun so they're "chasing the sun" and they won't grow old because vampires don't age

    amazing is the feeling that you get from accepting god(light,son)for your salvation and his light guiding your life on this earth

    I'm better
    So much better now
    I see the light, touch the light,
    We're together now
    I'm better
    So much better now
    Look to the skies, give me life
    We're together now
    And now it feels so amazing
    Can see you coming
    And We'll never grow old again(in Heaven)
    You'll find us chasing the sun

    They said this day wouldn't come
