this is everything that I wanted
do you believe that I tried so hard to take it home but never felt a single moment
life has been a place where I've wandered moving slowly to understand what I can grasp
But understand that it's still not right

so come back to me (he's always waiting)

I can't find it but maybe I'll cope
And can you hide it and never let go?
Come back to you, I only knew

Lies have covered all of the smiles
and wakened thoughts that have turned my heart to face the wind
and then fall to where I know I'll fit, but you do you believe that I wanted something other than fallen hearts that just belong to places where the bridges give in

can you see what I felt when I told you
can you cope when it runs right through you
cause my heart it is broken with love that is coped
and now you tell me that I have something that's missing?

    General CommentThis is my favorite Falling Up song. I heard a part of this song from a friend and bought the CD just because of that. And now I love all of their music. It's so nice to see a Christian band that really is Christian. Awesome music, lyrics, everything.

    General CommentI heard this song through my girlfriend and have loved it for a long time, but I had no idea Falling Up was a Christian band. I don't get how these lyrics have anything ot do with Christ. Am I retarded, or what? Help.

    General CommentMYTH:
    All "Christian" bands sing about Jesus non-stop.

    TRUTH:
    "Christian" bands would be thrown out quicker than that pair of bell-bottoms you bought last week if that were the case.

    General CommentTight song. But whats it mean? Also Crashings beats Dawn Escapes by a million. I think the lyrics are too out there on Dawn Escapes and don't really have a message. None of them move me.

    General Commentumm OOOK ther Theprofecy.

    MYTH:
    if Christian bands sang about God all the time then they'd be thrown out quicker then the pair of bell-bottem jeans you bought last week.

    FACT: even if they did, they wouldn't care, because alot of Christians don't care about what the world think of them. and bands like Kutless, Falling Up, anf Jonah 33 and countless others sig about God ALL the time. Look up their lyrics and prove me wrong!

    General CommentI think that the guys are saying that they've had the lord in their lives but they've fallen back a little bit and they've been finding their way back to the lord(So come back to me,He's always there).Thats what i think at least...

    General CommentI think it's a song about people who live their lives full of everything they think would fill their empty gaps, but never fills the gap inside their heart....this gap can only be filled by Jesus/God

    this is everything that I wanted
    do you believe that I tried so hard to take it home but never felt a single moment
    life has been a place where I've wandered moving slowly to understand what I can grasp
    But understand that it's still not right

    "understand that this life is still not right"

    "So Come Back To Me" (he's always waiting) (Jesus is always waiting to hear those words from people)

    "Come back to you, I only knew"

    The person says "come back to you" (back to God, because it's the only thing they knew would ever fill the gap inside of them...)


    "cause my heart it is broken with love that is coped
    and now you tell me that I have something that's missing?"

    The person's relationship is broken, with their spouse, but they say they have something that's missing....they might have lust, but what they don't have...is Love....

    Love is From God, Lust is from Satan...


    Jesus replied: " 'LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'LOVE your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
    - Matthew 22:37-40


    See, it's not a struggle to find and keep Jesus, it's the Love Relationship, not the Religion that keeps the fire strong for God.....

    General Commenti love this song and i love this band.

    "Escalates" is one of the first songs that i heard by Falling Up. I heard other songs by this band, but this takes the cake... it is so good and i just about heard everyday on the Gospel Music Channle.

    And i do agree with you magraz757, it is the Love Relationship, not the Religion that keeps the fire strong for God...

    God bless you dude...peace!!
