You remember me before I learned to run
At the kissing tree before I learned my guns
We were seventeen, seventeen years young
I am still running, I am still running

I had no idea the pain would be this strong
I had no idea the fight would last this long
In my darkest fears rights become the wrongs
I am still running, I am still running
I am still running, I am still running

Build me a home inside your scars
Build me a home inside your song
Build me a home inside your open arms
The only place I ever will belong

I am still running, I am still running
I am still running, I am still running

Build me a home inside your scars
Build me a home inside your song
Build me a home inside your open arms
The only place I ever will belong
The only place I ever will belong
Inside your open arms
The only place I ever will belong

    General Commentyeah its beautiful and a love song
    but its more than that
    its about gods love, no some romance
    its about running and running to try and find happiness
    but the only place he can find it is in gods arms

    General CommentThis song's amazing. i got this EP as soon as it came out and must have overlooked this specific song up until this point. It's exactly what i am going through and somethign we all struggle with; just running from God. doin' our own thing. but the awesome part, the beauty of everything in this life is that that's not it. we have redemption to God our Father through Christ, and that's so awesomely rad =]

    General CommentI may just be contextualizing here, but I cannot shake the notion that this song is about sin and redemption. It seems to me that he has committed some sin in the past that won't leave him alone. This song is about the reality of sin. The harsh, painful reality. Though this sin doesn't define him, it haunts him.

    He is crying out to the God that he knows his merciful, gracious, and loving. Though he knows of God's forgiving nature, it's so much harder to accept forgiveness when you know you've wronged Him. So he keeps running. He doesn't want to. He is asking, begging God to comfort him. To shield him. To hold him. To keep His arms open so he can turn around and run BACK into them instead of running away.

    General CommentSuch a clear honest declaration of the state of my heart, then the cry to a loving God to draw me closer to Him.
