    This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. If you cannot feel the impact and power of the lyrics then not sure what to tell you. Sorry they lost a great friend. What a BEAUTIFUL tribute.

    A coworker gave me a CD that came out of an old CD player a few weeks before I got married (three years ago, now). I remember cruising around with my son getting wedding stuff done and bumping this song as we made our rounds; good times. I hope he knows i was singing along to him.

    Sorry 311 I am a huge fan, but this song I have come to realize is a blatant ripoff of U2 - Some Days are Better than others. Prove me wrong doubters. 311 before 311.

    My wife was diagnosed w/ Leukemia in 2011. Many evenings during the "dark days" I would dial up this song as I rolled into my neighborhood after work. I would sit in my car in the garage & listen to this, gathering courage to face up & be strong for her. Helped me through some tough times.

    This song came out right around the time we had to put my childhood dog to sleep. This song always reminds me of her.

    Saw them earlier tonight in Bristow VA and they played this. Everyone got their lighters or phone lights out when SA sang the candle part.

    It is a gift I know
    A moment of bliss that we hold
    A firecracker flash of light then on
    To the next plane soul remain
    Come along if you dare
    It's gonna be that you're scared
    Lovely life I thank you
    For the reason to see the pain through
    Light a candle for the dead
    The wick is burning returning what we have
    It's who we are
    We'll reach you if you're beyond the furthest star
    Don't give up the fight to stay alive and even if
    you have to
    Find the reason of another's pain if they lose you
    If not for your self then those around who care
    like I do
    One day you'll see the clear blue
    Beyond the Gray Sky
    Light a candle...
    The wick...
    It's who we are...
    One day youill see the clear blue
    Beyond the Gray Sky
    I can't believe you didnit call
    What made you want to end it all
    Wasn't there something I should have tried
    To help you see beyond the gray sky

    As I moved through life finding different music, some bands become staples. 311 has been a positive staple in my life. So glad they are STILL throwing down great tracks. 30 years strong all along.

    My cousin committed suicide in 2013, Rest his soul. Suicide never ends the pain, it just passes the pain onto the loved ones you leave behind.

    Just got back from a 311 show. I've listened to these guys since I was 16, now am 33. HOLY FUCK. Best show I've ever seen. These guys love putting on a show.

    I listen to 311 every time I'm in the hospital and it always makes my days better and totally makes me want to hurry up and get better. I have missed so many amazing & unforgettable 311 concerts all because of hospital stays. I have Lupus and had a kidney transplant in July 18, 2009 but unfortunately it only lasted 4 years and it had to be removed in July of 2013. I am currently waiting on another beautiful gift of life and hopefully it happens again soon 🙏🏼❤️. But 311 always puts me in a good mood😉😘🙏🏼❤️☝🏼💞☺️☮️ and in a dancing mood.

    I used to be a DJ a couple years ago (weddings, proms, etc) and was playing a Prom in SF and one of the kids came up to me and asked if I had anything "super chill" to play... so I selected this song and had almost a dozen kids ask me who this was and then download it to their phones... Happy 311 day!

      hate to be the negative nancy, but what you said places a lot of blame that doesn't need to exist. nobody can predict that kind of thing.

    I've seen 311 12 times and each and every time that I've seen them there shows have been better and better, mind you that's dating all the way way back to 1992!

    • In search Of the truth

      1993 was my first show! Hooked ever since... not many bands create their own sound that evolves over time and still rocks!! --IMO one of the most unique sounds with great musicians!!! (Tool - same) since that's what I grew up with and to this day see the greatness!!
      Cheers !!
