It's breathtaking to think of you
And to learn that sometimes
The only way out is through
It's mind numbing
To think of yesterday
I'd run to you now if I could
But things have changed

(I heard you say)
It's enlightening to think of the breeze
And to believe in things that we can't see
(So here we go)
Let's show them how to live
Accept the pain
Always forgive
Watch the sun go down
Learn the sound of following
All that is complete

It's breathtaking to think of you
And to learn without faith
That the sky isn't as blue
It's mind numbing
To think of yesterday
We'll look towards the stars
And dream that we're airplanes

(I heard you say)
It's enlightening, think of the breeze
When you watch the sunset...
Think of me
(So here we go)
Let's show them how to live
Accept the pain
Always forgive
Watch the sun go down
Learn the sound of following
All that's complete

(So here we go)
Let's show them how to live
Accept the pain
Always forgive
Watch the sun go down
Learn the sound of following
All that's complete

Let's show them how to live
Accept the pain
Always forgive
Watch the sun go down
Learn the sound of following
All that's complete

    General CommentThis song has a spiritual meaning for me, like he's talking to God.

    "And to believe in things that we can't see"

    Either way, this song is beautifully written and sung. Love it (:

    General CommentSpectacular. Rivals 'Konstantine' by Something Corporate, and 'Some Will Seek Forgiveness...' by Underoath. An immensely powerful and uplifting song.

    General CommentThis song is so perfect. It just makes me think about how much I love my girlfriend. This song makes me realize how much she has done for me.

    I believe it's about a guy/girl that is realizing how amazing and wonderful his girlfriend/wife/etc. is.

    General CommentIm so with you on that one! This band is amazing.

    So to me this song is.. The guy wants to go bac to the girl, to feel her love and support .. but things are not the same. shes afraid to try the relationship again, in fear of being heart broken. He wants her to trust him.. to know he loves her.

    General CommentI was told this song was written about a few of his friends. Which I thought pretty much made sense. One of his friends being someone who had just recently died.

    It had such a good flow to it. It was the first song I ever heard by them and it was enough to make me buy the CD.

    General CommentIve actually had a chance to talk to the guys in This Day And Age, and Jeff told me that this song was written about when he lost 3 people very close to him when he was a child. Its an optimistic song about being strong in the face of such pain and being able to accept the things that are out of our hands. Its really an incredible song
