Empathy | Reviewer: Healing Light | 10/7/10
"Walking in another person's shoes" is what an Empath does ALL the time! So many more empathic people are "Awakening" & making this planet a more beautiful place:) Songs like this help to enlighten people & should not be picked apart...just take the basic meaning for what it is. Peace, Love & Compassion...the trinity that really works (if you want to talk about religion lol). There have to be different variations of music, books, religion, etc, to be able to reach the vast majority of people...to help them understand what life is all about. I listen to the screaming sounds of the songs my kids listen to & can't understand why they like it, but then I read the lyrics...very deep & meaningful (most of them). Envision the world you would want & it will manifest before you...
spread the message. don't be a music critic. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/5/10
Spread love not hate. Positive not negative. I advise just applying your own interpretation and inspiration of the song to your life. don't aspire to be a critic especially not a music critic. that would be a shame. love you all regardless. keep walking. stand tall. And maybe give a bum some soup for starters. What's the difference between a judge and a critic? Not much
Ha. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/24/10
Okay, so first off. Yea, there is one teeny bit of a reference to Christians in the song. Talking about the girl getting called a sinner. So that debate just needs to be over now. You guys aren't accomplishing anything.
Now, the actual song itself is freakin amazing. I don't usually listen to rap/hip-hop or whatever genre this would be in, but I have to say that it's really a good song for people to listen to. Because most of the time, you really DON'T know what it's like. I think that if everyone had this mentality, the world would be a much better place to live.
It's kind of a long song, though.
hmm | Reviewer: araceli | 7/7/10
the song is talking about life, for 1 dont judge anyone its not your place unless your a judgmental prick, 2. be happy for what you got, you never know when you might lose something or someone. 3. keep your fucking mouth shut ppl dont take shit talk very lightly...
Everyday life... | Reviewer: Valkinsenn | 5/25/10
Well, the main thing that this song hits on is that you shouldn't talk shit about someone until you know where they come from. That's the main point of this song, especially in the repeated line "Then you really might know what it's like."
And to the person talking about religion, this is the reason why you need faith in something, otherwise the events, and others like them, covered in this song will get you down in the dumps and you will have nothing to pull you back out of it.
However, this song is not about religion, it's about the lack of understanding for others seen day-to-day in the god-awful shitty mess of a world we have to live in.
Pathetic... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/18/10
It's pretty pathetic that everyone seems to feel the need to put their input in about their views toward religion.. Which obviously your views toward religion have NOTHING to do with this song. Stop bashing eachother and keep your dumb fucking opinions to yourself. UNLESS they have something to do with the song and NOT something else.
P.s. This song is amazing. It's straight up real. These kind of things happen everyday in life.. I think it shows how stuck up people and cold hearted some people really are, and how "shit happens".
Why argue? | Reviewer: Lauren | 5/13/10
So much arguing for no reason. Everyone has different views and opinions and might interpret lyrics differently. I think many artists enjoy when people read into their songs in ways other than they may have intended. So if someone sees this song as having to do with religion, so be it. If someone thinks it has nothing to do with religion, who cares. I don't see a point in arguing about the meaning of a song. Everyone has a right to their own interpretation.
Blues are not for sharing, empathy is. | Reviewer: Overthinker | 3/10/10
It's about how life can be sweet but life can also be harsh and messed-up and you can get caught in the blues. It's about how you shouldn't judge and be happy to have someone to look down on, but should try and remember what it is to be human and have empathy for each other. Or if it isn't, it SHOULD BE, hehehe!
TOLERANCE? | Reviewer: kirsten | 1/27/10
this song is about judgment, and the fact that no human being has the right to pass it onto someone else. How do you know what that person has gone through, or is currently enduring in their lives? it's about tolerance, for everyone. including those with christian views! i believe in this song and all it stands for whole heartedly. so to the "anonymous reviewer" who posted on 7/4/09, for someone who reviews on a song with such a meaning as this one, you sure did miss the big picture. you are the most judgmental person on this site.
tolerance my friend. it goes a long way.
its not about religion. | Reviewer: annie. | 12/28/09
the entire concept of the song is about judgement, not religion. did you dumbasses even read the lyrics? instead of jumping to conclusions and making assumptions you should actually pay attention to the lyrics and listen to the way they are sung. its pathetic for ya'll to discriminate against one another. there are so many diverse religions out there. i'm not even a believer. what does religion have to do with any of this? i'd fuckin love to know. read the damn lyrics if you're on a fucking lyrics site. seriously. get smarter people.
Believe | Reviewer: Tommy | 12/14/09
I dont think that anyone kwows what its like
to walk in someones shoes or Truly understand what someone els has, or is going through,
maybe the loss of a loved one or a family member, maybe a close friend ?
I, just I Believe in...
Just Believe and All things are possible...
What it's like | Reviewer: Rock_lover | 11/19/09
Look, guys, here's the deal. This song is not about Christianity. This song is not about abortion. This song is not about this, that, or the next thing. This song is about judging. Read the lyrics. Christianity is never mentioned, and there are plenty of people who aren't Christians who are against abortion, but that is only one part of the song. The song is about judgment. Not about the Bible, religion, God, abortion, or anything else like that. It's about how we judge people. The first is the old man and how we judge him, but have never walked a while in his shoes. The second is about a woman who fell in love and then was conned and left with a baby because of it, and we shouldn't judge her because we've never walked a mile in her shoes. The third is about a guy who died and left his family, and we've never had to wake up and hear how our father or our husband has died. We've never walked a mile in that family's shoes. That is what this song is about. Enough of this ridiculous religion debate taking place here, because this song is DEFINITELY not about that.
song | Reviewer: candice | 11/16/09
Its not a bash on christianity. It is truth in the matter. Most people view abortion as a sin. But the thing is its a hard choice and kills you for years to come. The is my favorite song. It tells truths so much. Cause be glad you never had to know what it was like unlike alot of us.
Just an observation | Reviewer: Tea | 11/1/09
I find it funny that all the reviews in here are about religion, not the song. The point of the song is to make you think twice before judging someone, because you aren't in their position and you don't know "what it's like."
If you read all the comments, everyone is judging everyone else on both sides. One side is calling Christians idiots, the other side says you're an idiot if you're not a Christian. Aren't we all missing the point, which is NOT TO JUDGE EITHER WAY???
WOW!! | Reviewer: Miranda | 10/28/09
Why does everything have to be a battle of religion? Everyone needs to have some tolerance, no one has the right to tell someone what they should or should not believe in! The only freedom really left in our so called "free world" is the freedom to believe what we would like. Faith is just something to get you through to the next day and if you have an easier life you may not need as much faith if you struggle you may need a little extra because it is harder to get out of bed and face the world if you dont think there is anything there for you on that same note it might also be a little harder to believe there is something bigger out there if you are constantly hit with hardship. This song however is not religious, it is just a story about everyday stuff! How many abortion clinics have we seen without protesters in front of it? As far as answering to god at the end of our lives for everything we do, well if you believe that you might possibly make some better decisions throughout your life, so if people are out there making better decisions, not to kill people, not to cheat or lie ect, by all means let them!! But how about just listening to a good song and not complicating it with a big debate on how involved god is?! God lovers keep on loving god!If you dont keep on keepin on!
