Underneath the sky we sleep
The sunlight in my eyes keeps me from seeing clearly
Deep beneath the stars im lost
The darkness in my heart keeps me from letting go
Of everything I fear the most

And now I'm alone
And I'm ashamed
Hold me in your arms
And now I'm sorry for what I've done

Tied around the mess I've made
The air I breathe much harder
Everytime I speak
The words you've heard a thousand times
Ive tried before but now i feel like letting go
Of everything that hurts the most

And now I'm alone
And I'm ashamed
Hold me in your arms
And now I'm sorry for what I've done

And after all is said and done
You pick me up no matter where i fall
( No matter where i fall)
You hold me in your arms
Forgive me when I'm wrong

And now I'm alone
And I'm ashamed
Hold me in your arms
And now I'm sorry for what I've done

And now I'm alone
And I'm ashamed
Hold me in your arms
And now I'm sorry for what I've done

    General Commenti think this is a song about a person who wants forgiveness now, from somebody who they hurt in the past.

    General Commenti don't think it refers to God b/c quotes like "Underneath the sky we sleep" make it pretty obvious that he's referring to another person.

    General Comment"underneath the night sky we sleep" that just means that everyone is under the night sky sleeping, not two people or anything like that. and he wants forgivness from God, obviously. these are christain artists...

    General CommentThis song is about someone who wants to let go of something bad they've done, but they're scared and want comfort.

    General CommentYes, they're a Christian group, but really, I look at lyrics to all of their songs, and think that if I didn't know they were a Christian band, I would have no idea that they were talking about Jesus. Which I like, because the music is really good...and I'm not a fan of gospel.

    General CommentI know they're a christian band but they have a point "underneath the sky we sleep" but then he says "im alone" it could mean alone like no ones here with me or Gods not with me, but i guess it depends on the person hearing the song.
    To me theyre crying out for forgiveness to God/friend/girlfriend, it dosnt matter but theyre asking for forgiveness and they have tried to make it better but "The words you've heard a thousand times,Ive tried before but now i feel like letting go
    Of everything that hurts the most" makes it seem like the person did forgive them but they cant forgive themselves, and now hes letting go.BUT thats what i think (:
