Part 3 of the Def Leppard Live Series is ‘And There Will Be A Next Time…Live From Detroit’.  This the latest released from Def Leppard and sparked my reason behind reviewing all three of the Live albums they have released.  The other two are as follows:

‘And There Will Be A Next Time…’ was recorded back over the Summer of 2016 in Detroit, MI (obviously) in support of their album that was simply titled ‘Def Leppard’.  The release was in both CD form and in Blue Ray / DVD and consisted of 17 tracks.  The track listing is below:

My Sunday Song – “We Belong” by Def Leppard

This weeks My Sunday Song #18 is by my all time favorite band, Def Leppard.  The song is off their latest self-titled album and is called “We Belong”.  Def Leppard just released the new video in the last couple days while promoting their upcoming DVD which is called And There Will Be a Next Time – Live From Detroit.  It is a DVD-Blu-ray/two-CD set which will be released On Feb. 10, 2017.  They are taking preorders at Pledgemusic.com.

4. “Dangerous”

7. “Rock of Ages”
8. “Photograph”

I will be getting my copy for sure.  Go get yours.

Now back to the song.  This is the first song that every band member has a part in the lead vocals.  That to me is the charm behind this great song and one of my favorite songs on the album.

I tried to look up the meaning behind the song, but really couldn’t find anything on it.  In reading the lyrics it looks like it is about God.  With lyrics like “You’re all that I am, You’re all that I see, The keys to the kingdom Are waiting for me”  and “If you cast the first stone  I will roll it away, I will kneel at your throne Hold my hands up and pray” are why I have the impression it is about his faith.

You can interpret it anyway you want, but this is my take away and why I wanted to showcase the song.  To me, it screams I am not good enough to be loved by God and how can I be a part of His Kingdom.

I hope you get something out of it and enjoy.  Let me know your thoughts on the song.

“We Belong”

Sometimes I feel I don’t belong here
Sometimes I just don’t feel

I feel so uninvited
A wound that never heals

I need a little shelter
Just for a little while

Sometimes I hide the sadness
Behind a painted smile

If you cast the first stone
I will roll it away
I will kneel at your throne
Hold my hands up and pray
I will hold back the tide
Push the oceans aside
Save the day
But I can be stronger

You’re all that I am
You’re all that I see
The keys to the kingdom
Are waiting for me
So don’t hold me back
Don’t hold me down
Just hold me and don’t let go
You’re all that I am
You’re all that I do
The end of the rainbow
Is waiting for you
So tell me I’m right
Cause this can’t move on
Not if we belong

Whatever happened to forgiveness
Are the words too hard to say

What happened to the answers
They disappeared along the way

I hide behind the madness
Still looking for the clues

And there’s nothing left to chance
When there’s nothing left to lose

And the voice in my head
Screams the words I believe
And the light in the dark
Is the air that I breathe

You’re all that I am
You’re all that I see
The keys to the kingdom
Are waiting for me
So don’t hold me back
Don’t hold me down
Just hold me and don’t let go
You’re all that I am
You’re all that I do
The end of the rainbow
Is waiting for you
So tell me I’m right
Cause this can’t move on
Back where we belong

As you cast the first stone
And I roll it away
And I kneel at your throne
These words that I say

You’re all that I am
You’re all that I see
The keys to the kingdom
Are waiting for me
So don’t hold me back
Don’t hold me down
Just hold me and don’t let go
You’re all that I am
You’re all that I do
The end of the rainbow
Is waiting for you
So tell me I’m right
Cause this can’t be wrong
Not if we belong

The keys to the kingdom
Are waiting for me
