The lyrics in this song are so cool. The first verse says, "Imagine this... I get a phone call from Regis. Says do you want to be a millionaire. They put me on the show, and I win with two lifelines to spare. Now picture this... I act like nothin' ever happened, and carry all my money in a coffee can. Well, I've been given more than Regis ever gave away. I was a dead man who was called to come out of my grave. And I think it's time for making some noise."
Then the chorus says, "Wake the neighbors, get the word out. Come on, thank crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout. This is life we've been given, can't you feel it now. So la, la, la, la, la, live out loud. Live out loud yeah, yeah."
Then the second verse says, "Think about this... try to keep a bird from singin', after it's soared up in the sky. Give the sun a cloudless day and tell it not to shine. Now think about this... If we really have been given, the gift of a life that will never end. And if we have been filled with living hope we're gonna overflow. And if God's love is burning in our hearts we're gonna glow. There's just no way to keep it in." Then the chorus repeats itself again, then there is a bridge of la-la-ing, then the chorus comes in again to end the song.
I love this song so much, because it has such a great beat to it, and it is so much fun to sing the chorus. The meaning behind the lyrics is also so great. What it is saying is that we shouldn't be afraid to live out your faith in public. That you should be proud of what you have been given and that you should go to the mountain tops, and shout that you are living your faith out loud, and out in the open.
I hope that you all enjoy this song, and you all enjoy it as much as I do!
