While watching Gossip Girl 1 before, the intro of the song caught my attention and I heard the lyrics, Do you know where your heart is? Do you think you can find it..." The song talks for me to express what I was feeling during that time. Those times, I feel exhausted that the chorus of the song hit me: All I need, is the air I breathe, and a place to rest my head. And according to Tedder, the song is about being happy with what you have in life, not obsessing over with what you do not have. Person, relationship, love, success, fame - the song fits for all and as for me, I was referring for my success.
