Emotive, unstable
You're like an unwinding cable car
Listening for voices
But it's the choices that make us who we are

Go your own way, even seasons have changed
Just burn those new leaves over
So self-absorbed, you've seemed to ignore the prayers
That have already come about

This is the correlation of salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
With quiet words, I'll lead you in

Backing away from the problem of pain
You never had a home
You've been misguided, you're hiding in shadows
For so very long

Don't you believe that you've been deceived?
That you're no better
Than the hair in your eyes
It never disguised what you're really thinking of

This is the correlation of salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
With quiet words, I'll lead you in

This is the correlation of salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
With quiet words, I'll lead you in

You're so brilliant, don't soon forget
You're so brilliant, grace marked your heart
You're so brilliant, don't soon forget
You're so brilliant, grace marked your heart

This is the correlation between salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
I'll guide your heart
With quiet words I'll lead you
In and out of the dark

This is the correlation of salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
With quiet words, I'll lead you in

This is the correlation of salvation and love
Don't drop your arms
Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
With quiet words, I'll lead you in

    General CommentI think the right lyrics are
    "Backing away from the problem of pain, you never had a home
    You’ve been misguided, you're hiding in shadows.
    For so very long.
    Don't you believe that you've been deceived?
    That you're no better than...
    The hair in your eyes, it never disguised what you're really thinking of"

    General Commenti have to agree with rival cycle. after i read these lyrics i got goosebumps.
    to me the lyrics that stand out the most are:
    "This is the correlation of salvation and love.
    Don't drop your arms.
    I'll guard your heart.
    With quiet words I'll lead you in and out of the dark"

    God is salvation and love and it's saying how to never stop worshiping Him. "Don't drop your arms" A method of worshiping is by raising your arms.
    Also, God guards out heart as we wait for that one soulmate out there.
    God also speaks lightly to us, whispering. He is also the light of the world and will lead us out of the dark.

    That's what that means to me.

    General Commentto me "with quiet words i'll lead you in" refers to prayer, quiet words with god, lead you into heaven or as it is in the song, lead you out of dark places...
