Four A.M., two hours to go
I'm wearing out a lonely road
I miss you more than I could know
Here I am, here I am
Won't you keep me?

I've got my hand at redemption's side
Whose scars are bigger than these doubts of mine
I'll fit all of these monstrosities inside
And I'll come alive, come alive

With my fist down at your feet
I was running out of mysteries
Insecure and incomplete
Here I am, here I am,
Won't you keep me?

I've got my hand at redemption's side
Whose scars are bigger than these doubts of mine
I'll fit all of these monstrosities inside
And I'll come alive, come alive
Alive, come alive

My fears have worn me out
My fears have worn me out, yea
My fears have worn me out
My fears have worn me, worn me

I've got my hand at redemption's side
Whose scars are bigger than these doubts of mine
I'll fit all of these monstrosities inside
And I'll come alive
(I've got my hands) at redemption's side
(Whose scars) are bigger than (bigger than) these doubts of mine
I'll fit all of these monstrosities inside
And come alive, come alive

    General CommentThis song I think is talking about telling God your hear and you accepte him and you want him to take over your life.

    General CommentI think this song is about "forgetting" about God and putting other things before Him, and then asking for forgiveness.

    General CommentI actually think that the chorus is about "doubting thomas."
    "Ive got my hands in redemptions side whose scars are bigger than these doubts of mine"
    redemption is jesus and its talking about when thomas touches jesus scars from crucifixion to prove that it is indeed him

    General CommentSorry to correct you i(heart)miemyers but the words are lonely *glow*. Anywho, I do like this song alot. It sounds to me as someone who is lost, and God has now found them.
