“The Meaning of Life” is a feel good, uptempo, quirky invitation to a love interest. With fun, punchy, poem style lyrics such as “So baby please/Please won’t you finally decide/On Me/With you/You know/We’ll get through/The meaning of life,” Ames masterfully adds melodies to his emotional delivery to give this track a complete feel. Steady backing vocals work to guide the storytelling that seems to focus on the interdependence between people and the many layers to relationships that allow us to live fully and experience everything that this life has to offer."

Can you help me
with you
help me
get through
Baby darling It's time to choose

Can you decide
In Your mind
That its time
And realize
You it’s time to choose

I don't understand why we have to sprint through life
But I comprehend we only have one chance to get it right
So darling please please won't you finally decide

On Me / with you / you know / we'll get through
The meaning of life
