her headaches are constant increasing in pain
each passing day
she cant even manage to stand on her own its gotten so bad

you think in saying theres no use in praying
but still she bows her head
so she can say
thank you for just one more day

supernatual patience
graces her face
and her voice never raises
all because, of a love, never let go of

he has every reason to throw up his fists in the face of his God who let his mother die
through all the prayers and tears, she still passed in pain anyway

you think in saying theres no use in praying
but still he bows his head
so he can say
thank you for ending her pain

supernatural patience
graces his face
and his voice never raises
all because of a love never let go of
never let go of

    General CommentI don't know how to describe it exactly...
    The story is of two people (or more) one being a mother who sesms to be suffering from a brain tumor of some sort, she prays to God for one more day, and thanks him for it. To see her son.

    But when she finally passes, her son could easily loose his faith in God for letting his mother die, but he doesn't and prays to say "thank you for ending her pain".

    Faithfulnes, reasons, and plans. =]

    I love this song =D It's so beautiful.

    General CommentWell to me the song is about a Son and his mother suffering she is dying from something and eventually she dies and he blames god for her death and he kinda gives up on god but in the end he realises that god is just teaching him what love really means

    General CommentIt's about a girl who's father abuses her because his wife died hence he takes his frustration out on her. Both the child and the father is going through an emotional time and wishes to get through it.

    General CommentWhen Flyleaf was still just a local band, at one of the church shows they put on, Lacey said it was about James mother when she had cancer.

    General CommentIt seems to me about being frustrated with God, and Him just begging us to be patient. Anyone else got different thoughts? =\ Amazing song btw.

    General CommentYeah this song is great.
    I think that song shows that God has plan in every action He does, that we can always find something good in His deeds even though they seem pointless.

    General CommentThis song is amazing... it reminds me of my grandfather...I had prayed for his healing... so often for six years...and one day I prayed that either he be healed or taken away to heaven....and a few months later he was gone...and I was mad at God because that wasnt the answer I wanted....and then I realized it was for the best....I stopped being angry... though it was only for a short while..a day or so....ever since then I've been patient with my prayers....waiting and watching....

    General CommentI love this song.

    I think it's about a mother who is suffering from some type of fatal illness. (I'm guessing brain cancer because the song states "her headaches are constant increasing in pain.") And even though most people believe that God had did her wrong, she still prays and thanks Him for everything He had given her. But she still dies.
    Her son is furious at first because she was dedicated to God, and yet she still passed. But then he realizes that his mother's death was for the best because she was put out of her suffering.

    But, that's only what I think.
