I Found You - The Wanted

www.last.fmBy Simon Cleary

The Experience: The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes is partying. Partying because "I Found You." But even as he parties, Skyes doesn’t forget "the darkest hour", when  he was "so lost." Every inch of happiness can be missed by a mile. One example: your health. You could be dead right now. A better example: every friend, including your boy- or girlfriend, could have ditched you long ago. Once you get used to being friends with someone, it's easy to stop thanking them for being there for you...
If you never forget the danger of being alone - “on my knees…” - you’ll never take the gift of friendship for granted. If you never forget that you were “so lost…”, you’ll never forget to celebrate because “I Found You.”



The Video
The music video is the exact opposite of the song: using instead of caring, money over love. After fighting their way through her kidnappers (hence the parental advisory), Sykes and the others don't rescue the girl. They steal the key to her lockbox, and leave her tied up while they go nab the diamonds.

My Take
Sticking to the song, the message is great: love and friendship are treasures. Never stop looking, and never let go.

Ask Yourself
Do you love people or use people? What's the difference?

LYRICS:

She wants me to come over
I can tell her eyes don't lie
She's calling me in the dark
She moves us where the room around the lights are like the sky
Confidence like a rock star

I wanna put my hands on her hands
Feel the heat from her skin
Get reckless in the starlight
I'm moving to the beat of her heart
I was so lost until tonight, tonight

I found you, in the darkest hour
I found you, in the pouring rain
I found you, when I was on my knees
And your light called me back again
Found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you, my only truth
I found you, and the music playing

I was lost til I found you, you, you
Til I found you, you, you

The night is getting older
And I can't come off this high
I don't want this here to end
I know she feels the same
Cause I can see it in her eyes
She says can we start again

I wanna put my hands on her hands
Feel the heat from her skin
Get reckless in the starlight
She's moving to the beat of my heart
Me was so lost until tonight, tonight

I found you, in the darkest hour
I found you, in the pouring rain
I found you, when I was on my knees
And your light called me back again
Found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you, my only truth
I found you, and the music playing

I was lost til I found you, you, you
Til I found you, you, you

I said, people
We're all looking for love tonight
But sometimes we can't see it
We're all blinded by the light
And we all get low, all get low
Searching for that piece of mind
Just when I've given up
Looking for some kind inside

That's when I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you

I found you, in the darkest hour
I found you, in the pouring rain
I found you, when I was on my knees
And your light called me back again
Found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you, my only truth
I found you, and the music playing

I was lost til I found you
