"Amazing Because It Is" as written by and Aaron Gillespie....
I was so scared of everything you put in front of me
I've been marching to every part of me
Just to see, see
Why you need me to be
The boy you need me to be

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saves a wretch like me
I once was lost
And now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

I just wanna see

I'm the type of person who lets fear drive
I'm the type of guy that lets it drive
Cause I'm addicted, I'm needy
I'm lost without you
I need you
I need you

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saves a wretch like me
I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

Amazing grace (amazing grace)
How sweet the sound (how sweet)
That saves a wretch like me (that saved a wretch like me)
I once was lost
But now I'm found (you know I'm found)
Was blind but now I see

Amazing grace (you're amazing)
How sweet the sound (you're amazing)
That saves a wretch like me
I once was lost (it feels so bad when you're lost and alone)
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

    General CommentAs I read through the comments on this song I realize that everyone is think Aaron for this song.

    Why not stop and thank God for giving Aaron a talent such as this? Why not thank God for putting the words to this song on his heart?

    I want to be the first to say, THANK YOU so much God for giving today's youth such a ministering heart like Aaron's! Keep up the good work, he has planted so many seeds in the kids that listen to his music.

    General Commentthis song is one hundred percent about jesus. i saw them in concert and right before they played it they were like "thank you guys for coming out just remember that we are all people just like you, just cos we're up here with guitars doesn't make us any different than you. just remember we love, and jesus loves you. I'm sorry if that changes your veiw of us but He does love you, He loves every one of us." It was soooo cool.

    General Commentthis song could be about Christ this song could be about downfall, this song could be about love ( love for another love for Christ love for anything) it's all in how YOU interpret it.

    but for me it is all of the above.
    i've hit a major downfall in my life.
    a huge stop sign a nice traffic jam.

    the very first line of the song is my favourite. along with "I'm the type of person who lets fear drive" because that is indeed just who i am.
    it's just one of those songs thats pretty much the story of my life.
    this song saves me everyday.

    General CommentIncredible. Heartfelt. Emotional. Beautiful. Amazing. Not enough good things can be said about this song. It pulls at your very heartstrings and sucks you in. Its incredibly simple yet beautiful. My favorite on Southern Weather and perhaps one of the most beauftiful renderations of Amazing Grace ever done. I heard that Aaron only recorded this song once, which makes an epic song incredible. The feeling of surrender and longing for god felt in this song is insane. Shows how much god loves us and how much Aaron loves god.

    "Amazing Because It Is"

    I was so scared of everything you put in front of me
    I've been marching to every part of me
    Just to see
    See
    Why you need me to be
    The boy you need me to be

    Amazing grace
    How sweet the sound
    That saves a wretch like me
    I once was lost
    And now I'm found
    Was blind but now I see

    I just wanna see

    I'm the type of person who lets fear drive
    I'm the type of guy that's in drive
    Cause I'm addicted
    I mean it
    I'm lost without you
    I need you
    I need you

    Amazing grace
    How sweet the sound
    That saves a wretch like me
    I once was lost
    But now I'm found
    Was blind but now I see

    Amazing grace (amazing grace)
    How sweet the sound (how sweet)
    That saves a wretch like me (that saved a wretch like me)
    I once was lost
    But now I'm found (you know I'm found)
    Was blind but now I see

    Amazing grace (you're amazing)
    How sweet the sound (you're amazing)
    That saves a wretch like me
    I once was lost (it feels so bad when you're (???))
    But now I'm found
    Was blind but now I see

    General CommentThis song is so amazing... it's very self explanatory... i do find it odd that it's in the middle of the album.. it seems more like an end of album song, but that is neither here nor there. Great Great song. Aaron Gillespie is the man.

    General Commentthe first time i listened to this song i literally cried.
    the way he puts all the words together so poetically is amazing and the way he's genuinely worshipping the Lord in the song just makes it that much better
