"Hello" as written by and Sara Groves....
Hello Lord, it's me your child
I have a few things on my mind
Right now I'm faced with big decisions
And I'm wondering if you have a minute, 'cause
Right now I don't hear so well
And I was wondering if you could speak up
I know that you tore the veil
So I could sit with you in person
And hear what you're saying but
Right now, I just can't hear you.
I don't doubt your sovereignty
I doubt my own ability to
Hear what you're saying
And to do the right thing
And I desperately want to do the right thing
But right now I don't hear so well
And I was wondering if you could speak up
I know that you tore the veil
So I could sit with you in person
And hear what you're saying but
Right now, I just can't hear you.
And somewhere in the back of my mind
I think you are telling me to wait
And though patience has never been mine
Lord, I will wait to hear from you
Oh Lord, I'm waiting on you
Right now I don't hear so well
And I was wondering if you could speak up
I know that you tore the veil
So I could sit with you in person
And hear what you're saying but
Right now, I think you're whispering

    General Commentthis is definitely a very young-love, nostalgic-like song about the person you're so into but can't really pursue a hundred percent. the idea of age and immaturity and overall complexity mixed with bad timing makes it so heartbreaking, but so addicting.

    General CommentI can't help but listen to this song on repeat. Totally that young love, where you truly feel you've found the one but you can't be with them due to immaturity, the fact we've gotta grow up, etc. Sad part is I only held my someone's hand except once and gosh it is so intense on how much she impacted me. Someone I'll never forget, it kind of sucks but is also funny that I find myself comparing everyone I consider getting involved with to her... Some of there old songs really get to me... Anyways yet again another terrrriiiifffffiiccc song by Tegan & Sara:)
