"Cinematic" as written by and Vincent Paul Scheuerman....
The other night I had a dream
It unfolded to the silver screen
A tragic fire, some tears were shed
I woke to find our hero dead
And wonder, "What if this was me?"

If my life was cinematic
With a soundtrack so dramatic
You'd be the hero and You would save me
And it would have the sweetest ending

I want to live in such a way
That when I'm gone my friends would say
That if my life was turned to film
I'd be standing on a mountain shouting victory in the end
But in my heart I know it's only true
If I'm supporting actor and the Oscar goes to You

If my life was cinematic
With a soundtrack so dramatic
You'd be the hero and You would save me
And it would have the sweetest ending

I don't want to let You down
I want to make you proud
If anyone is watching me
I want to make it count for something

What if it ended here?
What if the credits rolled now?
What would the critics say?
Would it be the biggest let down?

If my life was cinematic
With a soundtrack so dramatic
You'd be the hero and You would save me
And it would have the sweetest ending

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious.
    If our life was a movie... how would it end, who would be who and so on. Jesus would be the hero and he's saving us.

    The best part is when it says.. "What if it ended here" because that has got to be a scary question for all of us to ask.
    Amazing song

    General CommentBeautiful song. Truely amazing. It certainly challenges a christian to consider his/her life.

    It makes me have goosebumps.

    General Commentoh man. i like it so much better when its not tied to a god-esque meaning. that might not be what they're going for, as they are not a self-proclaimed christian band.

    General Comment^ Actually, yes they are.

    I seriously love the last part.

    "What if it ended here?
    What if the credits rolled now?
    What would the critics say?
    Would it be the biggest let down?"
