Standing alone with my heart in your hands
Longing to just breath you in
You traded our love for a life of desert lands
Giving yourself away again

But I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You hold my heart, you have my love
You are my bride

Without a goodbye a passion of lies steals you away
The thirst of desire is drawing you in
But the memories of white, the garden of life is taken away
But I'm fighting to hold you again

So I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You hold my heart, you have my love
You are my bride

Nothing can shatter, the promise I made to you
Our love will make you whole
And I will be faithful, dying to be with you
I will not let you go

But I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You are my love, you are my church
You are my bride

    General CommentNo comments on this song?! This song is amazing! I was listening to it on my way home from my night class tonight and just thinking of the meaning of this, I teared up! It's just so good.

    The first time I heard this song I was trying to figure out what it meant and at first I thought the speaker of the words in the song would be a man declaring his love to his fiance/wife. But parts of it made me wonder, "The things he's saying sounds like something only God can do!" haha. Then the ending I heard "you are my church" and I was like AWESOME. Totally aligned my thoughts on the song. It's totally about Jesus' love for his church, us. Oh how amazing we have such love from the God who created us... :')
