"Again" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Kirkpatrick Seals, Lacey Nicole Sturm and Mark T. Lewis....
I love the way that your heart breaks
With every injustice and deadly fate
Praying it all will be new
And living like it all depends on you

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
I love you please see I believe again

I love that you're never satisfied
With face value wisdom and happy lies
You take what they say and go back and cry
You're so close to me that you nearly died, oh

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

They don't have to understand you
Be still
Wait and know I understand you
Be still
Be still

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
The floodgates are breaking
And pouring out

Here you are down on your knees
Trying to find air to breathe
Right where I want you to be again
I love you please see and believe again

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Right where I want you to be again
See and believe!

    General CommentLacey explained this song in an interview. She said it was about a person trying to take on the world and try to fix all the problems the world has but they are only one person and they don't have the strength to take on the world and they fall and come back to faith again.

    General Commentyou can hear it at flyleafonline.com

    this song is firstly just awesome, but it has more to do with a relationship with God. The chorus is about God's joy when we submit to Him, and the beauty of mutual love.

    "I love that you're never satisfied
    With face value wisdom and happy lies
    You take what they say and go back and cry
    You're so close to me that you nearly died"

    There are a lot of lies, a lot of superficiality that keeps people from God, and He is happy when we recognize all the bull and see the Truth.

    The part about being close I think may be referenced to Old Testament stories when those who have seen God were supposed to die because they could not withstand His holy presence.

    General Comment(from their upcoming album. It's gonna be out somwhere between late this year or early 2008.)


    This is definitely God talking to his children, telling them it doesn't matter what people think of them, and that he loves when they obey him.

    General CommentI love this song! It's so awesome, and I can't wait to hear the album version.

    I think this songs meaning is it's okay to believe what you want, but know Jesus will always take you as you are.

    "I love that you're never satisfied
    With face value wisdom and happy lies
    You take what they say and go back and cry
    You're so close to me that you nearly died"

    I guess with that it's saying everything Jesus does for you your never satisfied with it. Then He's saying your not doing enough and your letting what other people say about you get to ya and you feel like Jesus has failed you.

    "They don't have to understand you
    Be still
    Wait and know I understand you
    Be still
    Be still
    Here you are down at my feet again
    Handing it all back to me again
    Right where I want you to be again
    I love you! I love you! I love you!"

    In that Jesus is telling you He loves you and will take you as you are. & to reject and be happy. I'm not 100% sure, but that's what I think.

    General Commentits kind of like when we see little kids do things and we say in the sweet talk voice "aww, how sweet..." even if its the ugliest pictures we've ever seen, we still say how wonderful it is. this song is like god doing that with us. hes admiring our innocence and naive qualities. telling us he loves that we need him and the thrives off our need and love for him.

    General CommentI think this is prophesy... sing along with it, but change the singer to be God. It aligns perfectly with modern interppretation of Christianity.

    General CommentWell at first when I heard it and read the lyrics it was definitely in God's perspective as all the lyrics are pointing to us "you". I know most people would go off and say "why you christians always gotta make everything about God" but i'm not so concerned about them but what Lacey is trying to throw out. It seems as if God is watching his children fall and seek the acceptance of other people but keep getting rejected and their image is broken, and it's saying that if you surrender to me, everything you are and will be, you will be satisfied. Because we as human fail, even the "holiest" people, if you wanna put it that way. And he, being God, is saying to look to him and surrender it all to him, to trust and believe in him.

    I almost at one point thought that one of the verses was referring to Moses, "You were so close to me that you nearly died." as when Moses saw the back of God and nearly died. Idk about that but it's what i thought.

    General CommentThe song is talking about redemtion and it is an ongoing process; we continually fall and God is always there willing to pick us back up again. It's talking about how she has such a fire for God that it is consuming her completely.
