The heart breaking makes a sound
I never knew could be
So beautiful and loud
Fury-filled and we collide

So courageous until now
Fumbling and scared
So afraid You'll find me out
Alone here with my doubt

Here it comes a beautiful collision
Is happening now
There seems no end to where you begin and where I end now
You and I, collide

Something circling inside
Spaciously you fly
Infinite and white
Like the moon and sky
Collide

Here it comes a beautiful collision
Is happening now
There seems no end to where you begin and where I end now
You and I, collide

Yeah Yeah Yeah

Here it comes, Here it comes, Here it comes now
Here it comes, Here it comes, Here it comes now
Here it comes, Here it comes, Here it comes now
Collide
Here it comes, Here it comes now (You and I)
Here it comes, Here it comes now (You and I)
Here it comes, Here it comes, Here it comes now
Feel it coming on, Feel it coming on now, Here it comes now
Here it comes, Here it comes, Here it comes now

    General CommentI beleive the whole "There seems no end to where you begin..." is talking about becoming one with Christ. A collision between Christ and you. I don't really think there is any meaning to romance or the opposite sex.

    General CommentOk...it's definitely not about romance! Read the album notes:

    ”For the past two years, I have ended most nights in concert with the following statement: ‘When our depravity meets His divinity, it is a beautiful collision.’ This recording is about that collision”

    This title track is about that collision. God comes and meets us at the lowest points of our depravity, and inexplicably infuses his divinity into us - we are still human, but we have the eternal God living inside us. The song describes the theological and emotional confusion that springs from this amazing truth.

    Best song on the new album.

    General CommentThis song to me shows the "Collision" between love for christ and love for the opposite sex. "There seems no end to where you begin" shows to me how it seems like you can never really get over an ex. "So afraid You'll find me out" you wanna be a good christian, but you need romance.

    I'm not sure though, its just my interperetation...

    General CommentThis song described in three main Biblical principles:

    Depravity, Unity with Christ, and the Holy Spirit within Us.

    General CommentJust a side note the first line is "The Breaking Makes a Sound" with the "The" drawn out and yeah OnDistantShores is right about the song.

    General Commentit means that david (or someone else maybe) is starting to maybe know the true meaning of God and taking him in his heart.

    General CommentI personally think that this song is talking about someone who is so close to coming to know God, but is unsure if they want to make the commitment and is "scared."

    "The heart breaking makes a sound.... so beautiful.... weak" its talking about how humans are really nothing until God and them collide.

    "So courageous till now" is talking about someone being so brave until they finally make the move towards God.

    The end result is "A beautiful collision" is Jesus and the person colliding into one making it beautiful.

    One of my faves!!!
