I look through photographs and faded letters from you
An empty shoebox on my bed
Lingering thoughts of what you said
Falling away from me

They say that where I’ve been is not who I am
And where I am does not define where I’m going
Someday I’ll find this place

I’ve dreamed up things that I just can’t let go
(dreamed up things I can’t let go)
(Conform in me your perfect will)

And sometimes I hide, but you always find me
And sometimes I run, but you’re always beside me
I feel you beside me, never behind me
I feel you beside me today

This is my prayer,
Lord that I’ll find your will
My ife is in your hands
Draw your plans
Use my hands

I’ve dreamed up things that I just can’t let go
Don’t let me be this way
No
I don’t want things my way
My delight is in you, my Holy Lord
Conform me to your will
Lord, do with me what you will

All these photographs and faded letters from you
An empty shoebox on my bed
Lingering thoughts of what you said
Show me a better me

    General CommentWoot! Awesome song... The background beat almost sounds like something off of Emery's THE WEAK'S END. Wonder why they didn't put this on FREE TO CONQUER. I'm kinda dissapointed with it. The EP was so much better for some reason... :S
    Sounds like he's mourning over a lost girlfriend. He's surrenduring the problem to God and asking His will to be done. The last line makes it sound like he's glad this all happened because, in the end, he came out stronger from the trial.

    Lord that I’ll find your will
    My ife is in your hands
    Draw your plans
    Use my hands
