"Wonder Of It All (Next Year)" as written by Justin Blythe, Stephen Kent Rector, Derek Stipe and Kevin Stipe....
All my hopes and dreams inside, visions lurk behind my eyes,
Something new behind it grows and You smile as my heart knows,
To be another still with You, I'm the one that loved You through,
But I'm still nothing next to You, I'm still nothing next to You,
What I've seen and where I've been is breaking out, breaking in,
Who I love and I despise, melting into compromise,
How I've changed and how I've learned, becoming less, becoming more,
But I'm still nothing next to You, I'm still nothing without You,
The sickness my mind's battled long, the center of my every song,
The beauty of my voice it fades to a spirit You'll cascade,
Flowing from Your perfect smile, I've avoided all the while,
But I'm still nothing next to You, I'm still nothing next to You,
Now all the future seems unclear, never moving, never near,
But you hold me as I scream, wake me from my wicked dream,
Something out there waits for me, hand in hand we wait for it,
And I'm still nothing next to You, I'm still nothing without You, no I'm still nothing without You,

And the wonder of it all is I'm still standing,
And the wonder of it all is we're still standing, never planned it,
And I wonder where I'll be next year.

Will You stand right next to me, will You hold me faithfully,
Should I question all these things, what makes me so deserving,
Something that I've thrown away, coming back for me today,
But I'm still nothing next to You, I'm still nothing next to You,
Hearts are broken just to mend, when will my brokenness end,
Lending my mind to dreams, it seems something are never meant to be,
The faith it lingers as I die, inside surrendering I cry,
I'm still nothing next to You, no I'm still nothing without You, no I'm nothing without You,

And the wonder of it all is I'm still standing,
And the wonder of it all is we're still standing, never planned it,
And I wonder, and I wonder, and I wonder where I'll be

When time is a broken dream,
Time is an endless change,
Time is an offering,
But time has an endless sting,
And time has a world to bring,
Time is a broken dream,
That's mended while lovers sing,

And the wonder of it all is I'm still standing
And the wonder of it all is we're still standing, never planned it,
And I wonder where I'll be next year.

We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe (Mine is a world of sinners) (Change your way of life [Always remember] change your way of life) [others we hate, those we hate, don't wish to hate unless you hate them] {I dont know about you, I ain't going to study war no more} one union stands up in the war (there is no substitute for...)

    General CommentThis is a powerful song considering around this time next year I will be out of high school and going into college. It's all about relying on God for everything that it's amazing that through faithfulness a relatioship with God can be substained.
