Sadness and rhyme
These are the times
These are the memories
We find a way
Pushing through the day
So speak to me gently

Can you just feel the time
Falling from some place new?
Can you just feel the sign?
Love waits for you
Love waits for you

I'm searching the stars
In desperate hours
Bound to find meaning
God shows a face
In this desolate place
And tenderness meets me

Can you just feel the time
Falling from some place new?
Can you just feel the sign?
Love waits for you
Love waits for you

Stories untold
Of redwoods grown old
Reside in the forest
And there you can hear
A whispering tear
That speaks into our loneliness

Can you just feel the time
Falling from some place new?
Can you just feel the sign?
Love waits for you
Love waits for you

    General CommentThe best thing about this band is that they are Christian but always greatly conceptual. Their songs aren't just "Praise Jesus, Praise God!" all the time. While praise and worship songs are amazing, especially in artists like Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, Casting Crowns and all that good love, it's nice to hear something quieter, with more intricate lyrics, and a deeper meaning woven into the song.

    I'm searching the stars
    In desperate hours
    Bound to find meaning
    God shows a face
    In this desolate place
    And tenderness meets me

    Definitely love the second verse the most... It shows how we search desperately to find purpose, when God finally shows us His will in the desolate times and His love meets us...

    I think the chorus is saying how we should be able to feel that God exists in the time we're given... in the signs of his wonders... but that might be my mind overthinking things...


    No matter, this song is amazing and more people need to comment...

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about a relationship with God, and how he'll wait for you to find him, i.e. the line "Love waits for you", and how even in the most remote or dark places He's there for you, i.e. "God shows a face, in this desolate place, and tenderness meets me" But thats just my take on it.
