"The Great Divide" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Magnus Sveningsson....
I have run to the ocean
Through the horizon
Chased the sun
I've waited for the light to come,
And at times I would give up
You have
Wrapped your loving arms 'round me,
And with your love I'll overcome.
You have
Loved me when I was weak,
You have
Given unselfishly,
Kept me from falling, falling
Everywhere but my knees!

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free!

I've been on Heaven's doorstep,
With the door open,
One foot inside
I've cried out, God give me answers!
Please hush child I'll tell you why
You have
Loved me when you were weak,
You kept
Giving unselfishly,
Kept you from
Falling, falling
Everywhere but your knees!

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free!

Oh, our love is beautiful
Oh, oo, oh, isn't it beautiful?
Times have changed
But you remain
My everything
Our love is beautiful
Stood by my side
Helped me survive
My great divide
Isn't this is beautiful.

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free!

    General CommentNot to be overly cynical, but isn't that what most of his songs are about?

    General CommentThis is the only song I've heard played on the radio from the new c.d. and it is good but pretty pop-ish. I agree that it's about him getting saved, but more about the division in the world between those that stand for God and those that stand against Him

    General Commentalso.. watch the south park episode Faith+1 where Cartman changes the lyrics to 80s love songs substuting the word Jesus in just to make money off idiot Christians who will buy anything that has the word Jesus in it... hmm i think I see a resemblance..

    General Commenti think its funny how everyone attacks that one event in his life as if it defines who he is. everyone stumbles, its how you recover that counts. its especially difficult for a guy like Scott cuz he has all the pressures of being famous. and bharQ your south park comment can pretty much be applied to anything... you could throw the word satan in instead and all satanists would buy it.

    General CommentDid anyone see that their using this song on the WWE video for the wrestler's visit to the mid-east ? I don't think it quite fits the meaning, but it will work in the "you set me free" part
