where are you tonight
I couldn't say goodbye
Your words still echo in my mind
The stars fall down lighting up the sky
If I had one more chance I would have done it right

The sky falls down at your command
The city will roar with the sound of terror
And our world will crumble
At the sound of your voice
So take my words, it's not my choice

There's no looking back
Live for right now
I'm so far away (so far away from you)

With no difference between right or wrong
We're so far away (so far away)

The sky falls down
With a single glance
From your eyes,
We walk as strangers in these times
All of what we know is about to end
We'll keep on fighting, but we'll never win

    General Comment6 is the number of incompletion, it is associated with satan and all things evil.
    7 is the number of completion or pefection, it is associated with God.

    i don't know so much if it's about the end of the world, as just about how powerful God is, more of a worship song.

    General CommentI especially love this song.
    This song is about losing someone, and you didnt get to say goodbye.{if i had one more chance i wouldve done it right}=that he said something mean to his friend but he wants another chance and hes sorry for what hes done ,but he wanted to say goodbye.

    General Commentwell honestly,
    sice this is a christian band and all,
    i thought this song was about the rapture or apoclypse because it says
    The sky falls down at your command
    The city will roar with the sound of terror
    And our world will crumble
    At the sound of your voice
    So take my words, it's not my choice"
    that to me just screams God and the end of the world
    and anyway, God is the only one who can make the world crumble at the sound of his voice.

    General CommentYeah. This song is about the end of the world. I saw them two hours ago and Nick bluntly said, "We're gonna play a song about the end of the world. Why Is 6 Afraid Of 7."

    And crazytoledo...
    Their drummer Jarret played soccer with my brother and they were in band (drummers, of course) together.
