You Found Me Lyrics - The Fray

Review The Song (22)



I found God
On the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west
Was all but won
All alone
Smoking his last cigarette
I said “where you been”
He said “ask anything”

Where were you
When everything was falling apart
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
You never rang
And all I needed was a call
That never came
From the corner of First and Amistad

sponsored links
Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

In the end
Everyone ends up alone
Losing her
The only one who has ever known
Who I am, who I’m not, who I want to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

Early morning
The city breaks
I’ve been calling
For years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never sent me no letters
You’ve got some kind of nerve
Taking all I want

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Where were you, where were you

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you
Just a little late

You found me, you found me
Why'd you have to wait
To find me, to find me?

im a athiest and a cover artist so i always sing songs that are ''deep'' and this song makes me think about my crush leaving me for my best friend * where were you were where you * losing her the only one who's ever known who i am who im not and who i want to be lost and insacure

Interpretation | Reviewer: Beckers | 12/7/10

The thing i like about music so much, is that in the end, you interpret it however you want.

sure, this song was written to be about God, but that doesnt mean you have to interpret it that way. You can listen to it and think of anyone. its just music.

Stop being so anal about what songs mean. its different for everyone!

surreal | Reviewer: a | 9/27/10

this song was playing in my room the moment my step sister took her last breath in the hospital. and those moments you feel so sad and angry. you're mad at yourself, and sometimes even god no matter how faithful you say to be. you ask why, and this whole song just speaks to me. the beginning brings it to reality of how i felt, like god was just sitting there watching it happen and didn't help her. she was in a terrible accident..she was only 18 years old and we're a month apart. we have no control. someday it'll happen to you, to me, your best friend. just enjoy every day.
"In the end
Everyone ends up alone
Losing her
The only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I’m not, who I want to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me"

God is just... this guy, you know? | Reviewer: Catsu | 9/10/10

When I see this, I see it as saying "God is just, this guy you know?" That putting him up on a pedestal, and making him out to be so perfect is deluding yourself. That accepting that he might be that old guy on the corner smoking, that he might be that person you'd never expect because he's not perfect, just weather worn and hurt just like you. He's some legendary creature you wait your whole life to meet and when you do you realize how much he's put you through, how much you've wasted trying to find him, but... He's just this guy. Doing the best he can like anyone else. And you have to get over that and learn to live knowing that.

Haha, but it appears no one else sees that.

I Was Found | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/30/10

I heard this song when I was really beginning to question my faith and I found myself praying every night asking God why he set these obstacles before me. A close friend of mine and my brother both had depression. Bullying was at its all time worse and my best friend and I weren't talking because I told we all have issues and to stop whining about hers. My other brother has aspergers syndrome and we never really had a normal brother sister relationship. I hated my parents for moving me away from my family and relocating to a new country. It was a really rough time for me and there was a point I was seriously considering self harm and anorexia. I was lost and felt really insecure because of the bullying I was suffering at school. Before I heard this song I had never stepped foot in a church, but one day one of my friends took me to their youth group. The message being preached that night was about how God will always be there for us, he will always listen, he will always forgive and how all you have to do is accept him into your heart. I did. God found me in one of my darkest hours and this song means so much to me. It's almost as if it was written for me, though I know it wasn't, but the lyrics describe my journey almost perfectly. It was as if I was being tested by God and he pushed all I believed in to breaking point. It took a time of darkness to see God was there the whole time, I was just blind.

Where were you
When everything was falling apart
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
It never rang
And all I needed was a call
It never came

God is always there, he will never forsake us. He has a plan and we just have to have faith he will help us through, though not always in the way you expect. Everything that goes wrong in our lives shape us and turns us into the people we were ment to be. God works in mysterious ways and all though it may not seem as though he is there he is. I think the song is telling us to have faith in God, he will be there when we need him. You just have to reach out to him.

Helped restore my faith | Reviewer: Laura C. | 7/20/09

I hadn't thought about God in a long time until I heard this song. It sort of woke to me up to what I was missing. I had gone through a rough period of my life, and tried to brave it all alone, without my faith or my family. Thought I could shoulder the burden by myself, and my world crashed down around me.

The message of this song is that we don't understand why God "lets" these horrible things happen. He has to find us--we're on HIS time, not ours. We shouldn't try to understand it, even though he attempts a dialogue with God in the song. It seems like God comes too late sometimes, and we feel "surrounded" by all the negative events, drowned in our own despair. Fortunately, God never gives us more than we can handle. And so the song ends on a positive note--"You found me."

I've been listening to this song nonstop since hearing it on the radio. Might even go to Mass on Sunday, hah.

To the atheists: The song is about God and faith, not a person, not a father, not a lover. Isaac said so in an interview. Still doesn't mean you can't listen to it and enjoy the melody. It'd be like listening to a song about Santa if you're Jewish, right? Heh.

deep | Reviewer: peaceloveSANTI | 7/11/09

Wow, this song is way deeper than I thought. It's not just a popular little ditty with good hooks, it's a song with lyrics that everyone feels at some point in their life. It's like, "Why the hell did you leave me when I needed you?" It doesn't just have to be about God, it can be about a parent leaving you.

definitely makes you think... | Reviewer: DEUCESS | 6/30/09

Of course everyone has their interpretation of this beautiful song... but this song is not actually about God,suicide, a girlfiend/boyfriend ... this song is about a person talking about an absent father and they had lost their mother. He uses "God" in reference b/c you never see God... you hear about Him. So now he finally meets his father (God) and says all of the things he's been wanting to say...Go figure! Hope this brings some light to the Fray.. Whom I love ever so much.

Universal | Reviewer: Morgan | 5/28/09

This song really struck a chord with me. I firmly believe in God, but when hard times hit, and you don't know where to turn, you find yourself questioning God. When things are good again, you ask "Where were you?" or "Why didn't you help me", and you realize that since you made it through that time, He really did help you, but any Chistian has asked before, "Is there really a God?" and I think this song is applicable to just about anyone. Bravo.

Perspective | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/10/09

I see this song from a different perspective. I believe completely in God, and I believe he can bring us love and meet our needs through other people in our lives. I think this guy was shattered when his first love left him. Later, he has gone through emotional suicide, not physcial suicide. God brings a woman into his life and he questions if she found him too late. And whether he can be brought back to life emotionally. We all see songs the way they fit our lives. I am that woman in someone's life, and so I see it that way. So I see that he wants to love her, but is struggling because he feels he has nothing inside to give her. So he sort of questions why God brought her to him too late.

Hmm | Reviewer: Dylan | 4/22/09

I interpret this song different from everyone else. I interpret this song as the hardest point in my life. My younger sister had just commit suicide, my best friend was killed in a car accident 2 days after, my fiance left me for another man, I failed all my classes, all my treasured music was lost, I was kicked out of my house and I just couldnt stand to be alive. And I had noone then and I was considering Suicide and the part in this song where it says

"Where were you
When everything was falling apart
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
It never rang
And all I needed was a call
It never came
To the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

In the end
Everyone ends up alone
Losing her
The only one who has ever known
Who I am, who I’m not, who I want to be
No way to know how lost you will be next to me"

It makes me think back to all of it and how I could have done something so stupid. I'm glad I'm alive to hear this now.

Ignorant | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/15/09

Hearing this song just makes me sad about how many people are confused and ignorant about the truth and about GOD. God is a delivering and loving GOD who's eyes are always searching the earth to and fro looking for people who want the truth. There will never be a time when someone is truly crying and GOD doesn't answer. But you need to come to terms that the only way to God is through his son Jesus Christ. He is there always waiting for you to come to him and for you to truly pour out your heart before him. People are always so ready to blame everything on God when something goes wrong. God delivers, he doesn't bring hurt and pain. You have to remember that there is a devil and he is the one who is out to steal, kill and destroy. If you're really looking for God and the truth and deliverance, read the Bible!

You found me explanation... | Reviewer: Alisha | 4/14/09

Issac said: "You Found Me" is a tough song for me. It's about the disappointment, the heart ache, the let down that comes with life. Sometimes you’re let down, sometimes you’re the one who lets someone else down. It gets hard to know who you can trust, who you can count on. This song came out of a tough time, and I’m still right in the thick of it. There’s some difficult circumstances my family and friends have been going through over the past year or so and can be overwhelming. It wears on me. It demands so much of my faith to keep believing, keep hoping in the unseen. Sometimes the tunnel has a light at the end, but usually they just look black as night. This song is about that feeling, and the hope that I still have, buried deep in my chest..."I kept getting these phone calls from home - tragedy after tragedy... If there is some kind of person in charge of this planet - are they sleeping? Smoking? Where are they? I just imagined running into God standing on a street corner like Bruce Springsteen, smoking a cigarette, and I'd have it out with him."

Comment | Reviewer: Amy | 4/13/09

I loved the theme of da song! U know.. questioning GOD.. I mean WOW! Really.. We all go through hard times and think that god gave up on us,but he's up there whether we liked that or not! But since our faith is shaken its certain that we would blame god "for not being there for us" However,there's certain words that has nothing to do with each other! Really.. That's what i hate about da song or else it would be perfect. Am a HUGE fan of the fray.. Simply.. "They FOUND ME"

GOD | Reviewer: aly | 4/2/09

i agree with reviewer Sam.
i know there is no god, i know he didn't make the world in 7 days, but yeah like you said, deep down in the bottom of my heart, in my mind, i know he's there looking over me, protecting me
