I said I would. I saw your eyes shining back on all my lies. Now we walk with fearful steps to darker days of discontent. The flame burned out. Awkward air. But I was warm because you were there. This stillness screams and I can't feel this awful storm and a love surreal. Lay it down....give in to what he has said. We pretend yet we know that we're still moved. The deepest truth and absolutes are captured in your smile. Let's be aware and share him too.....if only for awhile.

    General Commentthis song is becoming one of my favorites. i really really love it! the harmony in the second verse is gorgeous. I love the line: "now we walk with fearful steps to darker days of discontent" beautiful... really great imagery, guys. "the deepest truth and absolutes are captured in your smile" really romantic. but i AM having a little bit of trouble putting it all together. I imagine it has something to do with a guy going through some hard times but everything just almost seems to be alright because the girl he loves is there with him. but the "he" and "him" you're referring to... is that jesus? i wasn't sure how that would fit in with the song though.... explain it to me if you read this post!!

    General Commenthaha...this song is actually about how conversation, if it's intentional, can be a worshipful experience. Too often we limit what worship can mean. This is about the way in which human interaction, the scripture talks about "as iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen the countenance of another" There is potential for experiencing God if we are willing to make ourselves vulnerable in a mutually dependent sense. But it is about a guy and a girl having such conversations.
