"Suddenly" as written by Christopher E. Stevens, Toby Mckeehan and Joe Weber....
She blew everything to pieces
He's there hanging on to Jesus
She broke everything about him down
He said he never saw it coming
Until the day she dropped the bomb
And she broke everything about him down

Sometimes there's nothing left but to believe
And suddenly all of it's behind you
And I'm here to remind you
That yesterday is gone so say goodbye
And suddenly the skies open above you
And someone really loves you
Now everything's alive ... everything's alive

She's there broken into pieces
But he swares he doesn't really see it
When she says that all of it was so unfair
But Hope road is just around the corner
It's one place there's never been a foreigner
'Cause God's love makes everybody welcome there
Sometimes there's nothing left but to believe

Sometimes it's in an instant
Sometimes we wait for years
But it comes down to the moment when faith eclipses fear
Your wandering is over
The other side is real
You've broken through
Your mountain moved
And mercy is revealed
His mercy is revealed, yeah

Yesterday is long
Gone

And suddenly all of it's behind you
And I'm here to remind you
That yesterday is gone so wave goodbye
And finally the skies open around you
And love has truly found you
Now everything is alive
Everything's alive ... everything's alive

Sometimes there's nothing left but to believe

    General CommentThis song keeps me sane. Yesterday IS gone, we can't fix it. There is no better moment than when "faith eclipses fear".

    It's good to know that Christian music doesn't have to all sound like hyms (not that there is anything wrong with that). Christians are supposed to be a model that other people cannot wait to follow. Toby is a great example of how to blend the values of God's word with the funk that blows the dust off of the speakers of most Christians.

    General Commenti recon this song can be taken as a non christian way aswell. (whether toby meant that i dunno)

    i reckon it means just forget about everything you have done, and everything that has gone wrong because there someone there for you, whether that be god, or someone else

    My InterpretationI think this song has two totally separate meanings.
    The primary meaning is when someone finally comes to Jesus.
    But I also think that it can mean something about normal life.
    I found that it fit when my baby cousin was born. "Someone really loves you"
    But there's also a couple we've all watched be friends for a long time, and they just finally got together. "Sometimes you wait for years." It's an incredible song that you can look at however you want.
