Sixteen years and you're still on my mind.
I know you hear me.
I fall awake, and you're so far away.
I need you to be near me.

Come back for me.
Quiet i'll wait.
Will you find me here,
Underneath the raging sea?
I won't breathe.

I see you.
I'm so afraid.
But i reach out.
You never changed.

Pull me in, don't let me drown.
This will not be easy, you'll have to hold me down.
Tie me up, don't let me run.
Because another day without you is another lifeless one.

Caught in the waves,
In this endless ocean of people.
I will wait for you underneath the lights alive.
And i won't blink.

I'm so cold.
And i'm so afraid.
But i reach out...

    General CommentAnother great song.
    Its talking about knowing that God is there and being trapt in this world.
    First Stanza:
    16 years must be hold long he's known Christ. He knows that God can hear every prayer. We fall into sin awake in this world and we fall further and further away from God each day and we call for His grace and His guidence.
    Second Stanza:
    Calling for Jesus' second coming. We will wait in this hateful/corrupt/dying world that drowns us in sin.
    Third Stanza:
    We witness God's glory all around us, we have trouble opening our eyes to Him because it scares us but we desire Him in this decaying world because He is unchangable, INFALLIBLE, and unyielding.
    Forth Stanza:
    Calling for God to save him (i've had many dreams about that). Its tough living your life for Christ at time because of how we live and this talks about trusting in God to take control and hoping not to live in a "lifeless" facade.
    Fifth Stanza:
    Taken by the world of lost souls, he is shining in the light of salvation and won't budge in His faith in the Lord.
    Sixth Stanza:
    In this world we're frozen in our sin and struggle to call for God, but His light can warm our hearts and break us free...
    ...we must reach for Him.

    For all of you who don't know Christ, i encourage you to learn more about Him. He changes people's lives, He's changed mine. He loves you, let Him in....you won't be let down. Don't let this raging waters of the world drown you from Him....stand firm, reach above the dark waters and He'll guide you to true love, true life, for all eternity.
    I pray for you.
