"Another Life" is a song by Big Time Rush, from their fourth studio album, Another Life.[2] It was released on June 2, 2023, and is the tenth and final track on the album. It was written by Adam Korbesmeyer, Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, Nick Furlong, and Adam Amezaga.

Background[]

"Another Life" was written over one of many remote Zoom sessions, between April 2020 and August 2021.[3][4][5] Logan Henderson was driving on a road trip during the video session.[3] The song was the only one of "about 20" songs written remotely,[6] to make the track listing for Another Life. Kendall Schmidt said "that was the first song that felt like, 'oh, this is a Big Time Rush song'. The song was recorded in August 2021, the first time all four band members reunited in-person since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.[7][8] A snippet of the instrumental was played during the band's Instagram live on August 14, 2021.[9]

The beat at end of the song is that of producer Nick Furlong's son. According to Furlong, he "recorded it on my phone at one of our ultra sounds and then added it at the very end."[10]

Before release, the song was previewed during the fourth episode of The Forever Tapes, on the band's YouTube channel.[11]

Lyrics sourced from the band's YouTube channel.[12]

[Verse 1]
I don't recognize the room I'm waking up in
I don't see the way I look in my reflection
And time is passing even faster by the second
I wanna live in every moment while I still can

[Chorus]
I'm not gonna wait for another life
I don't wanna wake up and wonder why
Why I didn't love more
Why I didn't trust more
I didn't try to see the good in things
I'm not gonna wait for another life
To feel alive

[Verse 2]
I used to be like everybody else around me
Yeah, driving in the fast lane, sitting in the back seat
They don't remember you for chances you don't take
So I'mma risk it all, even if it kills me

[Chorus]
I'm not gonna wait for another life
I don't wanna wake up and wonder why
Why I didn't love more
Why I didn't trust more
I didn't try to see the good in things
I'm not gonna wait for another life
To feel alive
To feel alive
To feel alive
To feel alive
