I'll have you know what’s done
Has turned this boy to stone
Captures the light and thieves
And underneath your sleeves

She telling lies
She speaks in tongue again
I'm breaking bread at your communion
And it tastes like sweet revenge

I’ll hold my breath
Until the story ends
I’d wait for you
Until till you tell me when
Ooo When?

My heart for your soul
Leaves nothing to offer
What’s left of this hole
Keeps falling short
My heart for your soul
It’s all falling short
How dare you treat this the same way

The hand that meets you
Is the hand that leads you
Do the wings that try
Become the wings that fly?
Last night I wrote you a letter and it changed the world
Last night I wrote you a letter and it changed the world

My heart for your soul
Leaves nothing to offer
What’s left of this hole
Keeps falling short
My heart for your soul
It’s all falling short
How dare you treat this the same way
Lavish homes but vanished hearts

There's something I need to get off my chest (repeats)

Hold on, hold on, hold on
Until you’re out of breath
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Until there’s nothing left

Last night I wrote you a letter and it changed the world
Last night I wrote you a letter and it changed the world

    General CommentNO COMMENTS??? wow sullivan deserves better than this, fantastic band btw. I love the deep rifts between the sweet melody in the chorus. what a catchy sound. This track is the most elusive on on the whole cd and i have to say i am extremely puzzled (which is terribly embarassing to admit). I think it is an attack against those who just sorta throw off the atonement like it's nothing:

    "How dare you treat this the same way
    Lavish homes but vanished hearts"

    and how he wants to change the world with the light of Christ:

    "Last night I wrote you a letter and it changed the world"

    because all that Christ requires is your heart (aka your love) in exchange for his soul (literally) but the singer will wait until the time is right and when he is ready:

    "I’ll hold my breath
    Until the story ends
    I’d wait for you
    Until till you tell me when
    Ooo When?"

    but the first two stanzas are really confusing to my simple mind =). help please?

    General CommentI think he's condemning the way some rich chick treats things. She has "lavish homes" but her heart is pretty bad. She doesn't take things seriously (how dare you treat this the same way). I agree with compulsiveslacker as far as the rest of it.
