VERSE 1:
She fooled all of her friends into thinking she so strong
But she still sleeps with the light on
And she acts like it's all right on
As she smiles again
And her mother lies there sick with cancer
And her friends don't understand her
She's a question without answers
Who feels like falling apart

PRE-CHORUS
She knows
She's much more than worthless
But she needs to find her purpose
She wonders what she did to deserve this

CHORUS
She calling out to you
This is a call;
This is a call out,
'Cause everytime I fall down,
I reach out to you
And I'm losing all control now,
And my hazard signs are all out,
I'm asking you to show me what this
Life is all about

VERSE 2:
He tells everyone a story,
Because he thinks his life is Boring
And he fights so you won't ignore him,
Because that's his biggest fear
And he cries, but you'll rarely him do it
He loves, but he's scared to use it
So he hides behind the music,
'Cause he likes it that way

PRE-CHORUS:
He knows,
He's so much more than worthless,
He needs to find the surface,
Because he's starting to get nervous

CHORUS:
He's calling out to you
This is a call;
This is a call out
Everytime I fall down,
I reach out to you
And I'm losing all control now
And my hazard signs are all out
I'm asking you to show me what this
Life is all about

BRIDGE:
Have you ever felt this way before?
'Cause I don't want to hide here anymore
Take me to a place where nothing's wrong
And thank for soming, shut the door
The say someone out there sees us
Well, if you're real then save me Jesus,
Cause I've been this way for far too long
I wasn't meant to feel alone

CHORUS

Show me what this life is all about (2x)

    General Commenti can really relate to the first verse of this song. almost everything in it is true. my mother recently died from cancer and i've put on a strong attitude around everyone. my friends think that i'm doing fine and i'm already over it but i'm not. i struggle. i wonder why this had to happen. i question god and never feel like i'm getting any answers. while i laugh and smile with my friends, when i'm alone my mind drifts back to my mom and how much it hurts that she isn't here. i cry at night when no one else will notice.

    this song means a lot to me.

    General Commentthis is a call is the most amazing song i have heard in my life. <3 it is so beautiful and touches my heart in a place i never knew was there. it is my all time favorite song. it makes me choke up everytime i hear it. it is down to earth and anyone can relate to it. this song to me is about a need to belong which everyone feels. me and this one kid have had a thing for a while now and everytime i hear this song i think of him and how much we understand eachother. alot of the emotions in this song is exactly how i feel.

    **i did not mean to add the lines to the song in the previous post and i do not know how to delete it.**

    General Commentthis has got to be my favorite tfk song. i just love the line "and they say someone out there sees us, well if youre real, then save me jesus." Hes showing that hes really come to the end of himself, and he just wants to make things right with his Creator
