"When I Remember" as written by and Tomas Nils Naeslund Christian Thell Lindskog....
That boy is gone
Sometimes I miss the way he wept at night
To be still and not run
To be rocked to sleep in your light
These days there is not much that will bring tears to my eyes
But when I remember who I am and who you are
When I remember
A cloud moves in, rain falls, thunder strikes, and sunshine breaks through the clouds

I am walking blind
So distracted that I don't even feel when you hold me
When did I grow such thick skin
You are my sunshine and rain
My joy and sweet pain
I'm a spotless stain
That boy is gone
But nobody moves me like you do
When I remember

A cloud moves in, rain falls, thunder strikes
And sunshine breaks through the clouds
I can cry out of sorrow and joy
Every drop of rain turns into a crystal in the sun
So wash my eyes, my clothes, my skin, my bones, my soul
My feet, my love
I'm not forgotten
I'm in your thoughts cause I feel sunshine in the rain

To this day nobody moves
Nobody
Nobody moves me like you do

    General Commentbeautiful song. Just how I feel when I think of what God has done for me. Powerfully visual stimulating lyrics. Truely makes me feel Gods love when I listen to this awesome song. Makes me remember the first time I felt Jesus's love come over me. God is beautiful. Nobody moves me like YOU. Breath-taking.

    When I remember" ---> I think this is where he remembers what he used to be. He's talking about his old self and how God provided him comfort during his saddest days.

    "A cloud moves in, rain falls, thunder strikes
    And sunshine breaks through the clouds"
    ---> Obviously, it means like when he's having troubles in life, God comes in to help him.

    "I am walking blind
    So distracted that I don’t even feel when You hold me
    When did I grow such thick skin
    You are my sunshine and rain
    My joy and sweet pain
    I’m a spotless stain
    That boy is gone
    But nobody moves me like You do
    When I remember" --->Okay, so here he remembers when he used to ignore God and how still God moved him from his present state and changed him.

    "A cloud* moves in, rain falls, thunder strikes
    And sunshine breaks through the clouds
    I can cry out of sorrow and joy
    Every drop of rain turns into a crystal in the sun
    So wash my eyes, my clothes, my skin, my bones, my soul
    My feet, my love
    I’m not forgotten
    I’m in your thoughts cause I feel sunshine in the rain"---> I'm sure you guys get this now. God never forgets. And he will be always be there like nobody can.
