"Mystery of You" as written by Jasen Rauch, Anthony Armstrong, Rob Graves and Jason Mcarthur....
You always said we'd meet again
You always said you'd be here

You touch the deepest part of me
The places I could not save
Just tell me why I'm so dark inside

Somewhere, I will find
All the pieces torn apart, you just left behind
In your mystery

Somewhere I will see
All you taken from me
All you kept deep inside

In the mystery of you!
The mystery of you!

It's obvious you understand the blood that on my hands
I'm paralyzed, I can't escape
Until I see your face
You're all I know

Somewhere, I will find
All the pieces torn apart, you just left behind
In your mystery

Somewhere I will see
All you taken from me
All you kept deep inside

In the mystery of you!
The mystery of you!

You're all I know
You're all I know oh, oh, oh

Don't go oh, oh, oh
Don't go oh, oh, oh

Somewhere, I will find
All the pieces torn apart, you filled me deep inside
The mystery of you

Somewhere
Somewhere
They mysteries of you
Somewhere

    Song MeaningThis is what it says on Jesusfreakhideout.com about this song:
    Behind the Song:
    “Mystery of You” examines an emotionally war-torn soul looking for answers. Over a stream of loops and keys, singer Michael Barnes pines, “You always said you'd be here/Where are you now?” and the sobering “Don't leave me all alone.” With its deep melodies and climactic chorus, “Mystery of You” is ultimately less about the fear of being alone and more about recognizing that some mysteries can only be revealed beyond this life.

    General CommentYou know I completely understand how people will use the actual meaning of this song to describe it. But as I recall music speaks to everyone in their own way, and music is made to be interpreted from their own inner feelings.

    It's honestly really rude to tell someone that the way they feel about how a song speaks to them is wrong. Because it's really not. It's how the song speaks to them.

    Keep feeling people!

    General CommentPlums sorry it most definitely not is about a girl, you can interpret it that way go ahead, but I'm sure Red would sing about more important things about this especially on this album.

    Anyway I absolutely like this song! It's so amazing because, I don't think, it's talking about God leaving us. I believe it's talking about the mystery of Him. How amazing is that? If we had a God whom we would know everything about why worship Him? If we could figure God out there honestly wouldn't be any point to listening to Him because we, essentially, would know everything God knows.

    "Somewhere I will find all the pieces torn apart
    You just left behind in your mystery"

    Look at it this way: why do we study Scripture? To know God better, and through that to have a more intimate and deep relationship with Christ. As for the "torn apart" bit I'm not entirely sure why the singer would say that. Maybe he's referring to the mystery as pieces, like a puzzle possibly, that are torn apart. I say this because the next line("You just left behind in your mystery") I always think of when Jesus ascended into Heaven. He left us behind, and so He gave us the Councillor (the Holy Spirit) to guide us, and the Holy Spirit is such a mystery.

    In this book called "The Shack" the author refers to the Holy Spirit as "working in mysterious ways". It's a great book, it is a work of fiction, but I believe some things in it can be linked to Scripture. It's an amazing read, and it is quick as well!

    My OpinionThe intro/verse 1 is easy to interpret.

    "You always said we'd meet again
    You always said you'd be here"

    The first line means that when you left the Lord, He said you would meet again. You believe, from that, that He left you, which explains the second line. You think He left you that "last" time He spoke to you. But, the reality, is that you are the one who left Him.

    "You touch the deepest part of me
    The places I could not save
    Just tell me why I'm so dark inside"

    Jesus touches the deepest part of you, to feel your pain. He does this to know how to save you from it because you cannot do it yourself. And you expect to just know the answer to the problems as soon as you ask Him for the answers. When you usually don't hear anything, you often say, "The Lord is not with me! He has not told me what to do to get rid of this darkness! He must have left me!" That is an issue today. People believe that when you cannot hear anything, the Lord is not there! But, as a matter of fact, He IS with you! He just leads you onto the path of recovery without us knowing. This path can be as long as He wants. That is what leads to one of the mysteries: of not knowing that His work is happening right now.

    The understanding of the chorus is hard to see, but must be seen from a different perspective.

    "Somewhere, I will find
    All the pieces torn apart, you just left behind
    In your mystery

    Somewhere I will see
    All you taken from me
    All you kept deep inside

    Inside the mystery of you![...]"

    You must understand, that what we see as "pieces torn apart" that our Lord Jesus and God Almighty "left behind" are actually works of His that are meant to test and strengthen you! Satan often depicts the lie, "Where is your 'God' now? Look at what He tore apart from you He doesn't love you!"
    But, the truth is that He is with you! All this "despair" and "brokenness" are just works of God to bring you closer to Him! How glorious! He makes something of "evil" and creates it to benefit you! That is the mystery of Him! You cannot entirely solve what the meaning of all the pieces that were torn apart, or of all that was taken from you. Just know, that all that He has torn apart and stolen from you, was for a purpose: to come back to Him. Because, when you run back to Jesus (the "somewhere [you] will find"), you will find all that is lost is now found, all that is torn is now whole, and you, as well, are now full of light! How great is our God and Savior!

    "It's obvious you understand the blood that on my hands
    I'm paralyzed, I can't escape
    Until I see your face
    You're all I know"

    The "blood" on your hands is the sins you have committed. It is true that they can paralyze you, and chain you down, saying that you can't escape! But, when you see His face, you are saved from your sins through His Blood. But, to cleanse you of the chains that bound you to your sinful nature, the work though the Cross must believed. I am reading a book by Watchman Nee called "The Normal Christian Life". I am saying what he says in his book. In order to be rid of your old man, your man of sin, you must die through Christ. This doesn't mean crucifying yourself (although it is physically impossible). It means that you must believe that Christ died on the cross. Also, that Christ abides in you, and you in him. John 15:4 says "Abide in me, and I in you." This is evidence that you, your old man (of sin), died on the Cross with Jesus, just as He died with you. Also, believe that you have be resurrected with Jesus as a new man, free of sin! That is why, unless you see His face and the truth in His word, you cannot be freed from the chains. But, just because you haven't seen His face, you are still cleansed of your sins, but sin is still in your nature, keeping you down. Also, He is "all [you] know". Material possessions cannot, and can never, save you from your pain and darkness. Most of the time, they worsen your condition by adding more weight on you! Even though it gives of a "feeling" of "happiness", it will not last eternally. Only through Him can you has eternal life and happiness! Although some do not see or believe that Christ is the source of new life, He will unlock their chains as well. For it is written in Romans 14:11, "For it is written: As I live, says the Lord, EVERY KNEE will bow to Me, and EVERY TONGUE will give praise to God."

    Some may say that only believers of Christ will join Him, and those who don't will be sent to hell (theses people will use the verse John 3:16 to back this up). For one, "hell" in the Bible is the literal translation for the word that was used in the original Greek text (but that is a long and a different story). And, two, although people use the verse John 3:16, they usually stop reading there! Whenever my dad is criticized for believing this way, people say for him to read John 3:16. But, they overlook one thing. Although it says "...so that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish", many depict this as saying that non-believers will go to hell. But it does not say that! (If you don't believe me and want to prove me wrong, reply to this and show me proof.) For those who say that those who do not believe will go to hell, they usually do not read past, or skip, the next verse, John 3:17. It says: "For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him." The world might be saved. The WORLD, not just the believers, but the whole entire world and those in it! And, also, why would God, the One of love and peace and light, send his children into a place of hate and hurt and violence and darkness, or "hell"? See how contradicting it is? It either shows that God is a loving god towards His children, or is a god of punishment and despair. And, if Jesus, who conquered the sin of all, could not save even a single person from "going to hell" because of their actions, wouldn't that show that His work was in vain and false? Wouldn't that make you feel that you serve a false savior and a false god? See how the beliefs of some Christians contradict with the Truth, the Word of God! The Truth is this: Everyone, believers and non-believers, shall confess that God is Lord and Christ Jesus is Savior.

    My InterpretationMaybe it's about the mysterious way in which God can show up and leave in someone's life. That is, sometimes it seems like God is there for you and blessing you, while other times (when life is dark) it seems like God has almost abandoned you.

    General CommentI think this song means that the guy in the relationship has gone out with this girl, and thought he knew her well, but when they break up he realizes that he didn't know her at all. and is wondering how she could do this [breakup] to him. so if he REALLY knew her then he wouldn't wonder how she could do this to him.

    amazing song.
    "You're all I know
    You're all I know

    Don't go
    Don't go" is the best part. i can rewind it over and over, just when that background sings "ohhhh"
