"Faithful" as written by and Brooke Fraser....
There's distance in the air and I cannot make it leave
I wave my arms' round about me and blow with all my might
I cannot sense you close, though I know you're always here
But the comfort of you near is what I long for

[Chorus]
When I can't feel you, I have learned to reach out just the same
When I can't hear you, I know you still hear everyword I pray
And I want you more than I want to live another day
And as I wait for you maybe I'm made more faithful

All the folly of the past, though I know it is undone
I still feel the guilty one, still trying to make it right
So I whisper soft your name, let it roll around my tounge,
Knowing you're the only one who knows me
You know me

[Chorus]

Show me how I should live this
Show me where I should walk
I count this world as loss to me
You are all I want
You are all I want

    General CommentI love this song, it's so beautiful in its sadness. I'm not sure if there are any Twilight fans here, but I find that this song is just perfect for Bella in New Moon.

    General CommentSince Brooke's lyrics are heavily influenced by God and religion, the first thing that comes to mind is that she's talking about God.
    But, as I'm not a very religious person, I always take this song as a love song, and it makes a gorgeous one at that. Very, very gorgeous.
    I love how easily you can twist her song lyrics into anything you want them to mean. (:

    Song MeaningI think this song is about how she knows that God (Jesus Christ) is there no matter what, and the longer she waits for God to answer her prayer or to comfort her she's just made more faithful to God cause thats who we all depend on. "I count this world as lost, you are all I want..." In other words shes giving up the world, and her ways, to be closer to God. WONDERFUL SONG and its so true (to Christians I would assume)
