"Louder Than Thunder" as written by and Andrew Trick Larry Williams....
What would it take for things to be quiet?
Quiet, like the snow
I know this isn't much but
I know I could I could be better

I don't think I deserve it
selflessness find your way into my heart
All stars could be brighter
All hearts could be warmer

What would it take for things to be quiet?
Quiet, like the snow
That we meant to be empty-handed
I know I could I could be better

I don't think I deserve it
selflessness find your way into my heart
All stars could be brighter
All hearts could be warmer
What would it take for things to be quiet?
Find your way into my heart
What would it take for things to be quiet?
Find your way into my heart
What would it take for things to be quiet?

    Song MeaningSince nobody bothered to give the meaning yet...

    This song is about how Christ laid down his life in an act of selflessness for us, which we in no way deserve. About how none of us can give anything to repay that sacrifice, and we all know we could lead better lives and strive to become like Him.

    General CommentI love this song! It really gets me, especially the 'I can be better' line- that one one is just so powerful...
    I like the Christ interpretation, but I didn't initially make that connection. I actually viewed it as something to do with mentally beating yourself up when important relationships, friendships or generally things in life go wrong.
    -First, you want to escape from the noise and conflict ('what would it take, for things to be quiet?' etc),
    -Eventually you try to do anything to make the situation and yourself "better" (I know this isn't much/ Are we meant to be empty-handed? I know I could, I coud be better').
    -If the problem doesn't come right, even with your efforts, you either believe you've been wronged or you go into a huge guilt phase, saying you didn't deserve what you lost anyway ('I don't think I deserve this')
    -You may then feel you were selfish when handling the situation and wish you were less so ('Selflessness, find your way into my heart')
    -Finally it hits you- the loss of the important person or thing makes your world a much bleaker, colder place ('All stars could be brighter, all hearts could be warmer')
    REALLY far-fetched, but that's how I enterpreted the song initially....

    Song Meaningthis song means when jesus was crucified for other peoples sins people have been takig it for granted (i don't think i deserve it selfisness)selflisness is the opposite of selfish (find your way into my heart) he is talking about god and how people should accept him into there hearts (what woud it take for things to be quiet) my guess is that thee is so mch chaos and stuff going on in the world he wants o know what it would take for it all to stop.hope this helps XD
