Oh have you ever just stood there
And let the wind kiss your hair?
And put your head in a lion's mouth
But you didn't feel scared
Oh well I've stood there trembling
And still and will always be there

All the things I've hated, I've been before
I've fallen down slowly, just to kiss the floor
I've heard the hell hounds, clawin' at my door
Believe they wait, they hear your voice.

Oh, have you ever just stood there,
And watched the sun touch the land?
And reached down really slow
Just to kiss the forest sand.
Oh, well I've stood there smiling
And still, and will always be there.

All the things I've hated, I've been before
I've fallen down slowly, just to kiss the floor
I've heard the hell hounds, clawin' at my door
Believe they wait, they hear your voice.

All the things I've loved I've been before,
I've picked myself up off the floor
And heard the dawn break against the door
And known and believed it was something
More like a voice less like a noise
More like a soul less like a void

And you can learn to live without it
But your hearts gonna stay torn
And you can try hard not to need it
But you'll want it more and more
Its like the calm before the storm
OF COURSE

    My Opinionthe sound and music and preston's voice are great, but WSO would be a lot better if they would tone-down the god-related lyrical content. not everyone is religious.. i wonder if christian bands ever realize that they are losing potential listeners/fans this way
