come alone and make no attempt to save yourself from what you know had to happen.
come alone.
i wish i would have listened when i figured out, you knew me from the inside.
your eyes on mine, on mine.
and i'm afraid and alone with your eternal love in my hands and this bread, your body.
i know you know.
come alone from the garden to the hill.
come my love.
i have fallen.
i have betrayed.
so irresolute in my mind.
i can't stop pacing, anticipating.
could this be my fate in the end.
cause i'm afraid in the light of the look in your eyes when they're locked on mine.
i turn away, cause i know you see right through me.
come alone from the garden to the hill.
come my love.
i have fallen.
i have betrayed you.
so here i lie.
my guilt is my sentence.
you have been my life, and i will end it with a kiss.
come alone my love, my love.
i have fallen.
i have betrayed.

    General CommentThis song is definately about your relationship with Jesus. over and over it says
    "come alone"
    -meaning your relationship with Jesus is completely personal between the two of you
    "i wish i would have listened when i figured out, you knew me from the inside.
    your eyes on mine, on mine."
    -and he can see right through you and is all knowing and we tend to forget that he knows everything about each of us so the line "your eyes on mine, on mine" is like a re-realization and assurance like wow the creator of the universe is really watching me? but yes, he always is.
    "and i'm afraid and alone with your eternal love in my hands and this bread, your body."
    -He is always with us but He will never force himself on us we have to open up and surrender to Him everyday even when were alone and scared. The bread like you for communion is the bread which represents Christ's body "your body" and the sacrafice he made for all of us.
    "i have fallen.
    i have betrayed.
    so irresolute in my mind.
    i can't stop pacing, anticipating.
    could this be my fate in the end."
    "cause i'm afraid in the light of the look in your eyes when they're locked on mine.
    i turn away, cause i know you see right through me."

    -he knows he's sinned and turned away from God but and is overwhelmed with guilt and sometimes that is why ppl turn away from God but it doesn't matter if you choose to acknoledge Him or not because no matter, he will be right there beside you. then he goes on to say..
    "i know you know"
    -because Jesus was a person on this earth and he went through all of the things we go through he knows exactly what we feel, which doesn't make the things we do right, but i think it means he understands. That's why God sent His son to die for us so that we could be saved because we are and always will be sinners.
    "i have fallen.
    i have betrayed you.
    so here i lie.
    my guilt is my sentence.
    you have been my life, and i will end it with a kiss."
    -he admits what he has done and now he says 'here i lie' so now he surrenders himself once again to God. 'you have been my life' like once before God was in control of his life but he knows he has gone his own way and now he ends 'it' being his own life with a 'kiss' which is a representation of love so he ends the life he is currently living and surrenders back to God by once again accepting His love.

    General Commentsorry devan but this song is definitely the story of the betrayal of Christ told through the eyes of Judas.

    "and make no attempt to save yourself from what you know had to happen."

    during the last supper, Jesus told his disciples one of them will betray him and he doesn't try to escape his fate.

    "i wish i would have listened when i figured out, you knew me from the inside."

    Jesus knew all his disciples and just about everything else. i honestly dont know how ahah, i don't follow a religion so im not sure of all the details pertaining to Jesus's glory.

    "and i'm afraid and alone with your eternal love in my hands and this bread, your body. "

    during the supper, he broke bread apart and passed it to his disciples and said "my body" im not sure what that means either

    "come alone from the garden to the hill."

    after the supper, Jesus and his disciples went to the garden to rest. He did on the cross on a hill.


    "you have been my life, and i will end it with a kiss. "

    Judas told the priest that who ever he kisses, is the One. So the kiss of Judas is his betrayal.


    VOILA!
