You Found Me, My Entry for The Song of Ages
I found God on the corner of 1st and Amistad Where the West was all but won All alone, smoking his last cigarette I said, "Where you been?" He said, "Ask anything

"You Found Me" by The Fray



Where were you when everything was falling apart?
All my days were spent by the telephone that never rang
And all I needed was a call that never came
To the corner of 1st 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



But in the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I'm not and who I wanna 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



The early morning, the city breaks
And 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 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?



For me, the first paragraph is very much stating that he finally found God, and that he has had a lack of God in his life of late.









The band















In this segment, he loses his girlfriend/whatever, which is obviously a big blow.





I got creative here: who he is, who he's not, and who he wants to be :P





(chorus) here, he feels surrounded by sin, and almost, or does give up, and God turns up, late.









He feels here that everyone else is favoured by God, and are getting messages and calls from him. He feels left out, and let down. He's very angry at God now- he's taken all he wants.







Here he's asking God, "Why'd you have to wait?"



My take on this was maybe that he can't see the signs, and danger ahead, that God would have pushed him into, and not waited







All the sets



Bonus activity- find a scorpion on each set, except for the chorus!

I hope you enjoyed!

God bless you all!

Quoting Josh B. Your score is as follows: Originality- 20 Quality- 21 Creativity- 20 Overall Interpretation- 19 Total: 80 Great idea using multiple sets to portray different aspects of the song. The builds were great, but could have used a bit more detail. All together, the builds flowed nicely and earned you a good score.
yeah, I agree. thanks, anyway!

Quoting Caz . Originality: 18. Quality: 10. Creativity: 20. Overall interpretation: 22. Sorry to say the quality of the multiple sets brought you down a couple points. Some had a great amount of detail, where as on others I couldn't really understand what was going on in the scene or what you were trying to tell us. And the background... Don't get me started on the background. Even after all of this confusion, the explanations at the end brought your interpretation score up higher. Good entry. Total score: 70.
yep, a good score. thanks!
