Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Perhaps referring to the divorce of his parents, frontman Jason Wade chides a man for trading an old life for a new one on “Walking Away” (“A selfish life, I guess, comes with a cost”). “Days Go By” and “We’ll Never Know” recommend embracing life and taking healthy risks. The singer promises to see someone through hard times on “Come Back Down” (“You don’t have to tell me what you’re going through/I won’t be the one who lets go of you”). Similarly, “Undone” promises, “I will be the one who’s waiting anytime you fall.” Knowing that members of the band profess Christian faith, such songs could be interpreted as encouragement from God above. Wade gives a pep talk to a frazzled friend needing an excuse to press on (“All in All”) and battles long odds himself (the Beatle-esque “Chapter One”). The radio-friendly ballad “You and Me” celebrates young love.

Summary Advisory

Hang tough amid trials. Live boldly and without fear. Support one another. View mistakes as learning experiences. Those recurring themes make this disc a great option for young Lifehouse fans. Bryce Soderberg steps in to replace Sergio Andrade and Sean Woolstenhulme, but the band doesn’t miss a beat in terms of positivity.
