"I Hear That Music PLay" as written by and Joseph A./carroll Secchiaroli....
When I found my way home
I wondered in my mind
If all this was worth it, worth my life
But when I heard that song play,
I made up my mind
And how it made my heart sing a song so divine

I try to forget about the constant war
That rages on inside my soul,
But I know that I can't.
I could never forget it all.
But I never could escape that soothing melody.

It feels like I've just found my way,
In my darkest hour I hear that music play
Suddenly the world and its toil disappear
When the rhythm and chords fill my ears

I know that I should share it,
Share what i have found
Instill the joy that song gives
into your life

Can you hear it playing?
The notes intertwine, and every chord
Has purpose, played in its time

There's no words that could hope
To find this thing explained
So why don't we just listen to the keys and strings?

It feels like I've just found my way,
In my darkest hour I hear that music play
Suddenly the world and its toil disappear
When the rhythm and chords fill my ears

When your heart is feeling weak
And nothing seems to remedy
The weeping of the piano keys
Is crying for your pain to ease
And in the storms you cannot bear
The chaos swarms and fills the air
There's not a soul to mourn with you
But dissonance is ringing true

I know I've been there before
There's never been a better time to lend your ear
If only I could silence all this noise
then you could hear it... you could hear it...
Clearer than a desert sky

It feels like I've just found my way
In my darkest hour I hear that music play
Suddenly the world and its toil disappear
When the symphony brings to my ears
The most beautiful sound you can hear
May the music I love fill the years

    General CommentThis song describes the feeling I had when I first heard this band. Like the chorus says:
    "and it feels like i just found my way
    cause in my darkest hour i hear that music play
    and suddenly the world and its toil disappear
    when the rhythm and chords fill my ears"

    I think this song talks about those songs that just make everything okay, the ones that you can close your eyes and get lost in. The words reflect a man who has truly listened to music on an intense level that most people just disregard. Every song on this album is SOO good.

    General CommentI may be reading into it a little too much, but considering the band members are christians and all the spiritual lines ("song so divine", "constant war inside my soul", etc.), I think Joe's using music as a metaphor for faith; how nothing is so beautiful or comforting than the quiet, but constant, rhythm and melody of faith. No matter how dark the situation may seem, there is a way because of that music which gives purpose to those who listen and relish in it.
