You can look in your head and find no answer
You can look in your heart and find no hope
And you can crawl on the ocean floor
Searching for the silver pearl
But you won’t find the treasure in this world

You can lift your eyes
Come on to the cross
There is healing for all who come

You can look at the stars and make no sense of it
(Staring at the sky)
You can search your soul and find no light
Until you look in the Savior’s eyes
And then you finally realize
The saving sacrifice is love divine

Come on and lift your eyes
Lift your eyes, come to the cross
Come one, come all

    General CommentFrom Leeland:

    "When we were recording the demo of this song, we didn't have any verses yet, so Leeland was just recording a scratch vocal. And usually when we don't have lyrics yet, he just mumbles random things. Well, literally, in one scratch vocal take, Leeland 'wrote' all the verses of this song. [Laughs] At the end of it, we just kind of looked at him and were like, "Those were actually really good lyrics!"--Jack
    "The funniest thing about that for me was the only lyric idea I had going into the scratch vocal was the first line: It feels like your world's crashing down. And when I started singing, these lyrics just kept coming and kept rhyming. (Laughs) I was like, 'Where are these coming from? This is so random, this has never happened to me before.'"
