do you see my eyes losing interest, wandering about
someone always seems to take your place
can lighting strike the same place twice in my heart
as it does when you speak
i need that fire to burn in me
tell me, will it be
disguising plans i've made before
learning what i was made for
desire is trampled by my faults
but somehow, in the quiet you make sense
will you fall on me
like you did before
oh, you've watched me in my youth
when i thought you didn't need to
you knew best

    General CommentThis song is really called "In the Quiet"

    I'm surprised not very many people have commented on Vendera's music.
    I love all of their songs, this one included.

    I think this song is about someone who was in love with the singer and had to watch them love other people. ("Someone always seems to take your place") And now the singer is finally ready to accept their love. ("You've watched me in my youth.. you knew best" )

    General CommentOK...here's the real meaning...

    First of all, the singer/writer is a Christian...knowing that, we can see the true meaning....
    Psalm 46:10 - "Be still and know that I am God"
    Christians do this thing commonly called a "quiet time" where we find a quiet place and pray and read our Bibles. This is what the song title "In the quiet" means.
    Now, the struggle in the song is the writer's struggle to stay focused and stay passionate and obedient about God. Any Christian can tell you that it's hard. Sometimes, we don't really desire God and our relationship with him falters. Yet He's always there to bring us back into His arms.
    "do you (God) see my eyes losing interest"
    she loses focus easily because of the worries of the world
    "someone always seems to take your (God's) place"
    men always ALWAYS put things before God, like our jobs, our friends, our family, our stuff...and that's not what God desires.
    "learning what i was made for"
    God has created each of us with a purpose, and we must find that purpose and walk in it.
    "you've watched me in my youth...you knew best"
    the writer is aware that God is always looking out for our best, even though we don't realize it. when we get farther along in life, we can look back and see God helping us along.
