it falls apart from the very start
it falls apart
it falls apart everything around me falls apart

it falls apart from the very start
it falls apart, seems like everything I touch falls apart
everything around me falls apart
when I walk away from you

I wish I could, but I don’t always keep the promises I’ve kept
I wish I could, but I can’t always give whatever I have left
and now it’s all so clear, doesn't any one see what’s happening here

it falls apart from the very start
it falls apart, seems like everything I touch falls apart
everything around me falls apart
‘’when I walk away from you’’ x2

I know I should, but I don’t always say, what you want me to say
I know I could, but I don’t always act like everything’s okay
and now it’s all so clear, doesn't any one see what’s happening here

it falls apart form the very start
it falls apart, seems like everything I touch falls apart
everything around me falls apart
‘’when I walk away from you’’ x2
when I walk away from...

Everything I have ever been made of
hates who I am, I’m so glad you waited, can’t get my mind
off that you can love me, I’m so behind, you’re so far above me
‘’And you’ll always be the wind under my wings, above me’’ x2

I will not let it go to waste, I'm takin' all I got I’m leaving this place
and I will not let it go to waste, I'm takin' all I got I’m leaving this place
man, I will not be taking up space, I’ll take my best shot, I’m picking up the pace and...

it falls apart from the very start
it falls apart, seems like everything I touch falls apart
everything around me falls apart
when I walk away from you

it falls apart form the very start
it falls apart, seems like everything I touch falls apart
everything around me falls apart
‘’when I walk away from you’’ x3

    General Comment(first comment) This song, in my mind, describes what happens when you turn away from God and His advice.

    General CommentThe point is that people can believe whatever they think a song means. It's not wrong. The beauty of music how you interpret it.
    It's all about perspectives.

    But if you want to be technical, it was written as a christian seeing as Trevor explained it's intended meaning in a concert I went to a long while back.

    General CommentI think this story is progressive. This guy is trying to make it morally on his own steam and realizes he cant. And then it all becomes clear why this is the case: he stopped relying on God.

    "I’m so behind, you’re so far above me
    And you’ll always be the wind under my wings, above me’’
    This is how I've felt when I realize how pitiful my best efforts are. God just lifts us up when we throw ourselves on him.

    General Commentx7x,
    your right when you say that their songs aren't always completely about God but this one is. I know from experience. Life falls apart when you walk away from god

    General CommentGREAT SONG!! I love it, I Can't stop listening to it! I think you're right, HomieC. I also think that this song is about how everything goes bad when you take your sight off God.

    General Commentx7x: so what if it doesn't have to have a literal meaning to God? For me, personally, I know what it's like when I begin to stray from God. My life pretty much becomes misery cuz God is the only One who can keep me together.
    A lot of songs don't always relate to us they way they relate to the artist, as I'm sure you already know, so why even freak out about it?

    General CommentI don't see why you would get upset and declare a song from a Christian band a "secular" song. It can't be anything else. it's just too obvious what they are talking about. It can't be a girl cause thats just too cliche and way below these guys. No girl is gonna cause your world to fall apart the way god is.

    General CommentAdam, on what basis should I 'believe you'? It doesn't even make sense without it being a God-based song. From whom is he walking away? And what is this whole business about "every time he tries to help someone he messes up..." What lyrics are you basing this on?

    And honestly, if you want to express your opinion, fine, feel free, but for the sake of the free-expression feeling of this community, please leave out the insults. Just leave your opinion.

    General CommentI agree with Invader Tak. This song talks about how you take your eyes off Christ, then things start to fall apart.
