Was this all a mistake?
Was this all a lie?
Just a massive undertaking to pacify?

Was this given to me?
Or did I take it away?
Did I ever even choose to live this way?

How do I know
What’s the bottom line
When the truth can be sometimes so hard to find?

Can I justify
The words that I say?
Would I want to if I could, could I do it if I would?

This is more than a stance
This is more than me opinionating
This is more than chance
This is more than a passing feeling that I’ve had
And even though I can’t know for sure
There’s something burning deep inside
That I’m not ready to ignore
And so

I’ll wait for you
Cause you say you’ll be around
And I’ll look for you
Cause you promise to come down
And I’ll listen hard
For a still small sound
I’ll search for you
Cause you promise to be found

Was this all a mistake?
Did I make a wrong choice?
Did I listen inside my heart for the right voice?

Did I feel anything?
Or was it all in my head?
A dream to make life better until I’m dead?

This is more than a stance
This is more than me opinionating
This is more than chance
This is more than a passing feeling that I’ve had
And even though I can’t know for sure
There’s something burning deep inside
That I’m not ready to ignore
And so

I’ll wait for you
Cause you say you’ll be around
And I’ll look for you
Cause you promise to come down
And I’ll listen hard
For a still small sound
I’ll search for you
Cause you promise to be found


Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see


I remember the day in the park under the tree
When grace was given to me

    General Commentthe people that only listen this band because of the hey ya cover, are truly missing out on a truely wonderful abundance of talent. The songs are so beautifully written, and for this song the harmony for the amazing grace part just pulls at your heart strings. If you havent bought their album, go do it, because, their sound is so clean and crisp and so well put together
