"Are You Sure?", sung and written by Willie Nelson, is a song featured in "House of the Rising Sun" on Hurley's CD player. The version Hurley is listening to has only been released on Nelson's 2003 Crazy: The Demo Sessions compilation. The song lyric "Are you sure this is where you want to be?" is possibly intended to be symbolic: the survivors' decisions to move to the caves or stay on the beach. In a larger symbolic meaning, the lyric could refer to the fact that some survivors, like Locke, want to stay on The Island, and are, technically, sure of where they want to be. Others, like Kate, are unsure of whether they want to be on The Island, thus the repeating question: Are you sure this is where you want to be?


Lyrics

Oh, look around you
Look down the bar from you
The lonely faces that you see
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

These are your friends
But are they real friends
Do they love you the same as me
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

You seem in such a hurry to live this kind of life
You've caused so many pain and misery

Look around you, take a good look
And tell me what you see
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

Don't let my tears persuade you, I had hoped I wouldn't cry
But lately, teardrops seem a part of me

Oh, look around you, take a good look
At all the local used-to-be's
Are you sure that this is where you want to be
