Nothing I have is truly mine, it is all God's. Thank you for this great life God.

Letting life pass you by as if it isn't worth living just enduring. Sad reality, that many live. Stop letting this gift of life go to waste, step out and live.

Also @ Tom Fennell : the lyrics seem to have flown over your head completely.

Whenever you Let Go and Life Is So much LOVE. With God by me

This song is so true because no matter what we accumulate materially in life when we die we leave it all behind.

This song is about a woman who keeps life at arms length, refusing to claim it, as she begins to realize the price she pays for a casual attitude. It reduces her home to a hotel, and her lover to a several month stand.

Maybe she is moving in a few months, but she knows that's just an excuse.

And my excuses are no better.

This neatly summarizes the more melancholy aspects of military brat-dom. It's a wonderful life but it can get lonely, if you let it.

I think it's conceptual, in so far as sometimes I feel like my life is a temporary condition when it comes to personal relationship s . And in the end you own nothing at all. Maybe if your lucky some memories to do with what really matters. Those you loved and connected with along the way. It's a mixed bag.

Pretty, but unfortunatel y this song could be sub-titled "Theme Song of the Crazed Real Estate Bubble of 2003-2006." Was Dido paid a commission by the United Real Estate Agents of the World to promote this?

Personally, I'm renting and I've never been happier in my life.

I love this song, because it seems like it's mirroring my life right now. (I love when that happens!) I'm getting ready to graduate college and am faced with the dilimma of creating a "real" life now, and I'm gonna be honest; I'm scared shitless. This song always gives me that extra kick in the pants that I need when I'm cowering on the sidelines. We only get one life, start living it!!
