My Words Feel So Empty
My Lips Speak In Vain
Your Face Tells A Story
Of Wounds That Still Remain
Stay True To My Heart
Cast Failures To The Wind
I Hate The Way It Feels
To Know I Slipped Again

Tomorrow Holds Another Chance
Not Just To Smile But Make It Real
For What It's Worth I Won't Give Up
For Whats It's Worth I Won't Give Up
I Won't Walk Away
For What It's Worth I Won't Give Up

    General Commenti think this song is pretty self-explanitory. He lost his love and whenever he see's her, he see's how awful she looks and he relizes that he made a mistake and wants another chance.

    Thanks my view on it atleast

    General Commenti feel this song is about how you feel when you try hard to be what God wants you to be like, but you slip and afterwards you cant believe what you just did.
    you have asked Jesus to forgive you and even though you know He has, you still find it hard to deal with regret and the feeling that you have failed God.
    but you deeply want Jesus to stay close to you and earnestly vow to try harder next time; not to fail Him.

    this song is amazing. i can relate to it better than i would like :(

    General Commenti feel like this song is about failing and realizing it but not letting it get you down. hence the "for what it's worth i won't give up". it's a beautiful song.

    General CommentB-line. this song clearly isn't about a girl. Sure, you can take it like that but I'm sure they are implying it towards faith in god. how tough and uneasy it is to maintain faithful, but as a Christian to keep fighting through and fighting to get your solid faith with god.

    this song is what I'm living right now. i keep truckin tho! =)

    General CommentI love this band because it brings everyone together. Just like Mog i can relate way better than i would like to and in my specific instance.
    "My words feel so empty my lips speak in vain" When you are trying to fix something and you try and try and keep saying you wont do it again but you keep making the same mistake.

    "Your face tells a story of wounds that still remain" I dont know if this is what they meant but that face they see could also be your own reflection and you see and feel those wounds that youve created

    I would screw up pretty bad and then i would repent of it and than a month later i would make that same mistake so the line " I hate the way it feels to know ive slipped again" cuts me really deeply and i feel for it very much. I have been doing much better and havent made that same mistake for all of those people who would call me a hypocrite and such.

    There are people out there that say that if you screw up in the process of fixing things that it makes you a hypocrite and your just spitting in the face of God but i strongly believe that if you feel true remorse for it that it isnt. The term relapse comes to mind. So if any of you feel like you keep screwing up and that because you cant seem to let go of that sin that you arent worthy and that you should just give up that there is hope. there are people out there who have done the same things and are living better now and are happy. There is always someone willing to listen even if you feel like you dont want to tell that person. just know that God still loves you and through Christs Atoning Sacrafice that your wounds can be healed and your Sins forgiven. I believe that if you just dont give up and keep trying and keep trying that you will make it. i feel like there is another reason that it repeats "And for what its worth i wont give up, I wont walk away" He may be saying that to other people but he may be saying that for himself to remind himself about how good things can still be even though he is in a dark place.

    Almost everyone on here has felt strongly for this song and if anybody reads this and doesnt feel like they are worth it and they are below the atonement that that is what the adversary wants you to think so keep your head held high towards the heaven and remember that you are a child of God
