We flew over Alaska; we saw the frozen mountains pierce the clouds.
It was beautiful.
We felt the waves of New Zealand; the water shimmered beneath a moonlight shroud.
It was beautiful.
Close to home in an ordinary room, we felt You there.
It's my favorite memory.
You're so beautiful.

The spring in Appalachia, with flowers swaying above the fields of green.
It was beautiful.
Driving in New England, the road littered with bright October leaves.
It was beautiful.
Close to home in an ordinary room, we felt You there.
It's my favorite memory.
You're so beautiful to me.
Thanks for the songs, these seven friends and eight good years.
It is You that made them sweet, it was beautiful.

Pictures looking back,
just snapshots of the past cannot compare,
to feeling what we felt,
through anything that came, that You were there.

A thousand smiling faces, backlit and bouncing to the beat.
It was beautiful.
As many soaring voices, forever changed by Your mercy.
It was beautiful.
Far away from all the lights and noise, we felt You there.
It's my favorite memory.
You're so beautiful to me.
Thanks for the songs, these seven friends and eight good years.
It is You that made them sweet.
You're so beautiful to me.

    General Comment"Why doesn't God do anything about that?"

    Well, let me begin by saying that the world is in a state of entropy. Entropy is the tendency of everything to move in a downward motion. God is the only perfect being. When Eve chose to sin in the garden back in the beginning of the world, sin began. The world has gotten further and further from God and is trying to fend for itself. That is why bad things happen. In Heaven no bad thigns will happen, but on Earth, until man can surrender to God, Earth will not realize what a horrible state is has put it's self through. God is beautiful, and He is everywhere. Everything you love was created by God, and God loves you.

    General CommentThis song is great. It's a reflection on their journey as a band. I think it's cool how his favorite memory is such a simple one--not the travel, not the big shows, but the presence of God!

    General CommentNo, he ain't. No, he didn't. and No he isn't. What about the genocide in Darfur, huh? Why doesn't God do anything about that??? Yeah, that's what I thought.
