It's well past midnight
And I'm awake with questions that won't
Wait for daylight
Separating fact from my imaginary fiction
On this shelf of my conviction
I need to find a place
Where You and I come face to face

Thomas needed
Proof that You had really risen
Undefeated
When he placed his fingers
Where the nails once broke Your skin
Did his faith finally begin?
I've lied if I've denied
The common ground I've shared with him

And I, I really want to know You
I want to make each day
A different way that I can show You how
I really want to love You
Be patient with my doubt
I'm just tryin' to figure out Your will
And I really want to know You still

Nicodemus
Could not understand how You could
Truly free us
He struggled with the image
Of a grown man born again
We might have been good friends
Cuz sometimes I still question, too
How easily we come to You

No more campin' on the porch of indecision
No more sleepin' under stars of apathy
And it might be easier to dream
But dreamin's not for me

    General Commenti love love love this song so much. my interpretation is that it voices the struggles a new or doubting Christian may face in the acceptance of Jesus, while also showing that they really DO want to have a close relationship with Christ and live for Him.

    I think the final verse is so good-- "no more camping on the porch of indecision/no more sleeping under stars of apathy"-- it represents how living with faith in the Lord reaffirms one's purpose in life, and gives a person direction and something to live for. i take the final two lines as saying that instead of just wanting and hoping for purpose-driven life, the speaker is going to find the meaning in God (accepting any difficulties that may come with such a decision).
