"I Am Understood?" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Sometimes it's embarrassing to talk to You
To hold a conversation with the only one who sees right through
This version of myself I try to hide behind
I'll bury my face because my disgrace will leave me terrified

And sometimes I'm so thankful for Your loyalty
Your love regardless of the mistakes I make will spoil me
My confidence is in a sense, a gift You've given me
And I'm satisfied to realize You're all I'll ever need

You looked into my life and never stopped
And You're thinking all my thoughts are so simple but so beautiful
And You recite my words right back to me before I even speak
You let me know, I am understood

And sometimes I spend my time just trying to escape
I work so hard, so desperately, in an attempt to create space
'Cause I want distance from the utmost important thing I know
I see Your love, then turn my back and beg for You to go

You looked into my life and never stopped
And You're thinking all my thoughts are so simple but so beautiful
And You recite my words right back to me before I even speak
You let me know, I am understood

You're the only one who understands completely
You're the only one who knows me yet still loves completely

And sometimes the place I'm at is at a loss for words
If I think of something worthy, I know that it's already yours
And through the times I've faded and you've outlined me again
You've just patiently waited to bring me back and then

You looked into my life and never stopped
And You're thinking all my thoughts are so simple but so beautiful
And You recite my words right back to me before I even speak
You let me know, I am understood

Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation
Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation

Your voice has broken my defense
Let me embrace salvation
Let me embrace
Let me embrace salvation

    General CommentFirst off, I'm pretty sure this song is called I Am Understood...not Am I Understood?. I guess this song is basically about how no matter how much he messes up God is always there for him and always forgives him. I love this song

    General CommentThis song is amazing. "And you recite my words right back to me, before i even speak"...that's amazing and so true. "And sometimes when I find myself at a loss for words...cause if I think of something worthy, I know that it's already yours". The lyrics are just phenominal and the song performed live is INCREDIBLE. I get chills thinking about it!

    General Commentthere is so much musical genious in this song.... i love how relient k can summarize seemingly everything God feels for you in one song, and make it sound friggin gorgeous too..... this is one of my favorite songs on this album.

    "You looked into my life and never stopped,
    And you're thinkin all my thoughts
    Are so simple,
    Yet so beautiful..."
