"Longshot" as written by and Jones....
You made the call
I step outside, cross that line
And I lose control
Because I’ve been waiting
It’s beautiful to let go don’t you know
Your everything I try to be
The rise and fall to respond to the call
I got butterflies

Your all I have
So break me down
Your all I am
And nothing else matters

This is a long shot
It’s all I have
I’m ready to step it up
All I need is your hand
This is a long shot
It’s who I am
I’m ready to take off
All I need is a plan

I’m calling out
Take me, make me
I’m finding out
Your are my reason
It’s beautiful to let go don’t you know
Your everything I try to be
The rise and fall to respond to the call
I sing a new song

This is a longshot
This is the longest shot
I’m barely moving you keep me breathing

    General Commentto me it can be seen on two levels, both describing relationships. one with a close companion/lover and one with God. i see the links in some of the wording...

    "you're everything i try to be" - mirroring a relationship with Christ
    "the rise and fall to respond to the call" - the struggle to respond to the voice of God
    "all i need is your hand" - pretty self explanatory
    "take me, make me" - a cry for God to do just that
    "I sing a new song" - directly out of Psalms

    those are my thoughts

    peace

    General Commentdefinately a song about salvation, faith and God.

    "You're everything I try to be" - Trying to be like Christ, an impossible task, but a great goal.

    "You're all I have so break me down
    You're all I am and nothing else matters" - It is said that God does not build a man but breaks him. In order to restore him in the image of Christ.

    "All I need is a plan" - the Lord's individual plan for all of us, each one of us is made for something spectacular through Christ.

    This is a great band guys. Musically they are really good, the keyboard is what makes the band. Very similar to MAE, but different in the same sense. The lyrics are really solid, a band with content. Check em' out and buy their new album "Composure". It rocks!

    General Commentif this song is about God how would you explain "I got butterflies"?

    I certainly see the connections but i think is more about finding a person...

    General CommentGod's given me butterflies more than any other person, so I don't see why that line needs an explanation.
