We walked across the sand
Two trails with tails to tell
And our footprints kept our track
Until there were only two
One pair of prints pronounced one presence
Did you watch me from the heavens?

I asked why…
Why did you, why did you ascend alone
Could I make, could I make it on my own
You replied,
I’d never leave you, never leave you
I love you
I carried you

We flashed across the sky
Each step one day one night
But if I held on tight
Would you take me with you?
The ocean seemed to widen
From shoreline to shoreline
And I knew…

That I’d never have to lean against the wind
And I’d never have to be alone again

My eyes won’t fail against the wraiths
My nerves could crush tectonic faith
My breath will null harmonic waves
I’ve found my way.

    Song Meaningoh also i think that the song is about a girl he loved that he spent everywaking moment with untill they were like one and she died and he couldnt understand why she left him so soon but always knew she would be with him in his heart thats what i got out of the song most of their songs seem to have relationship meanings behind them. i wonder why?

    General CommentGreat song. Very obvious its about God. Any Subtle Way fan should know they are a Christian band anyway. I have no clue where the idea that this song is about a girl would come from.
