When I was young,
The smallest trick of light,
Could catch my eye,
Then life was new
And every new day,
I thought that I could fly.

I believed in what I hoped for,
And I hoped in things unseen,
I had wings and dreams could soar,
I just don't feel like flying anymore.

When the stars threw down their spears,
Watered Heaven with their tears,
Before words were spoken,
Before eternity.

Dear Father,
I need you,
Your strength my heart to mend.
I want to fly higher,
Every new day again.

When I was small,
The furthest I could reach,
Was not so high, then I,
Thought the world was so much smaller,
Feeling I could fly.

Through distant deeps and skies,
Behind infinity,
Below the face of Heaven,
He stoops to create me.

Man versus himself.
Man versus machine.
Man versus the world.
Mankind versus me.
The struggles go on,
The wisdom I lack,
The burdens keep piling
Up on my back.
So hard to breathe,
To take the next step.
The mountain is high,
I wait in the depths.
Yearning for grace,
And hoping for peace.
Dear God...increase.

Healing hands
Of God have mercy on our unclean souls once again.
Jesus Christ,
Light of the world burning bright
Within our hearts forever.
Freedom means love without condition,
Without a beginning or an end.
Here’s my heart,
let it be forever Yours,
only you can make
every new day seem so new.

    General CommentHear the live version from the End Is Here album, the very last track will remain in my heart while you are still alive..

    That's was the most solemn and powerful "Amazing Grace" and "Silent Night" I ever heard in entire life.

    God Bless FIF, where ever they are right now, U want them to know how much they touched my life in the time I needed it the most...I'm so happy I was given the chance to listen to their song, by GOD's GLORY it happened.

    I wish I was also there when they were performing it.

    I love them, I Love GOD!

    General Commentbtw, we just looked at the poem The Tyger by William Blake in school today and I was surprised to see that some of the words were the same or similar to some words in this song.

    Line 5 of the poem, "In what distant deeps or skies", matches FIF's line: "Through distant deeps and skies, behind infinity, below the face of Heaven, he stoops to create me."

    And lines 17 and 18, "When the stars threw down their spears,/And watered heaven with their tears," match the same words in this song.

    Just thought I'd point it out. But it's a great song, imo. :)

    General CommentI see it as being about how God is easy to accept when you're a child, when you even believe you can fly if you tried enough. Every spark of light is amazing and new... as you get older, problems pile upon you and God is harder to accept. This is a call for God to help him be that child again, see every day as new... and feel like he can soar once again.

    General CommentThis is a totally awesome song. I love listening to it when I need to worship cause it is serious but still has a great beat. I like FIF's more serious songs... but I have to admit songs like, "These Are Not My Pants" disturbs me... there cool, but disturbing...
