I’ll step aside this time around.
Open ears await a still and quiet voice.
Not with the timing that I have.
Ready to make any change required of me.
When I can’t see where this uncharted life of mine is going, all I ask is carry me.
And when I can’t see past the cloudy skies that are looming up ahead,
hold my hand and cover me.
Here with the world surrounding me,
enduring everyday is more than I can do.
I lack the patience that it takes,
so I am standing on the promise made to me.

    General CommentThis is the attitude that we as Christians need to have. We shouldn't always be trying to do things our way but we should be seeking what God would do "Open ears await a still and quiet voice."

    We shouldn't be dead set in our ways but rather "ready to make any change required of me."

    I guess the idea is that we don't always know where we're going and we don't always have all the answers but the one thing we can depend on is God. This song is a prayer to him asking for him to carry us.

    General CommentI really like this song... just amazing. Too bad bands like this are completley ignored. By the way, I think the name is a reference to the Christian poem "Footsteps." (or maybe it was footprints)
