The air has never felt so warm
the sky has never looked this way before
there's nothing comforting in change
I can't seem to find any peace in this confusion

I can't help my mind from racing
and my heart is beating faster than ever before
tell me is this really happening
I cannot tell if I am dreaming

but last night
I saw you standing in the moonlight
and you took my hand and we walked
beside the river
and you said
don't be afraid, be strong
I'm with you

I'm climbing on top of my doubt
don't let this fear
get the best of me
cause I find my confidence in you
and I find my hope
when I lose control

and last night
I saw you standing in the moonlight
and you took my hand and we walked
beside the river
and you said
don't be afraid, be strong
I'm with you

and last night
I saw you standing in the moonlight
and you took my hand and we walked
beside the river
and you said
don't be afraid

last night
I saw you dancing in the moonlight
and you took my hand and we walked
beside the river
and you said
don't be afraid, be strong
I'm with you
I'm with you
I'm with you
I'm with you

    General CommentThis one here seems to me as a spirtual song, one that didn't make it onto their demo or first CD but hopefully we'll see it in future releases.

    It reminds me of an experience with God that he's had. Sounds like it may have been written during a tough point in his life, maybe the divorce of his parents or a death in the family, something largely important to him, and he knows God is with him saying "Don't be afraid, be strong... I'm with you."

    General CommentI can't believe this never made it onto Diff's Lucky Day.
    This, everything, and unknown are my favorite songs.

    General CommentI kind of see it as a simple love song. Just someone offering support and comfort to another that is lost in the confusion that surrounds them. Yes, it could have a biblic reference because of the title of the song, but at the same time it could be interpreted as the "you" is refering to a person, not God. In my opinion.

    General CommentTo me this is about him and God, or from Joshua's point of view like mlbfan said, but my favorite verse is
    "I saw you standing in the moonlight
    and you took my hand and we walked
    beside the river
    and you said
    don't be afraid, be strong
    I'm with you"
    That to me just shouts out God. That to me is what God would say to someone if they were having trouble.
    Love this song!
