The lyrics flow well with the beat and rhythm and although they are quite simple, they seem to suggest a much deeper meaning. To me, the words “ chasing the Sun ” mean to go after what you want in life, how you want to. We tried to stay young / by chasing the sun / You blink for too long / the swans sing a song / And all that I've lost / And all that I've won / Don't mean nothing more. What does The Wanted's song Chasing the Sun mean? We have the answer.
