"Bro, Ashley's Here" as written by and Shomo Carlile....
As I stare through these tears,
I see your lips start to turn.
This world is so unperfect,
This love is so unworth it.

Won't be mistaken for another love song,
I won't go away, I won't be done wrong.
Tell me, tell me to, to live like you,
Tell me, tell me, and I'll follow through.

Get up, get up, he's calling your name,
You don't have to be something you're not.
Someday came suddenly and now I'm standing here.
Get up, get up, he's calling your name,
You don't have to be something you're not.
Someday came suddenly and now I'm left standing here.

As I stare through these tears,
I see your lips start to turn.
This world is so unperfect,
This love is so unworth it.
When you're here I don't need all the things I had,
Once before I was someone but that's not who I am.

I'll be the best I can for you,
I'll take this chance you will be true.
Tell me your reason why,
Tell me why you're alive.

To give to you my sin,
To give myself again.

And this is my call to the faithful,
I'll be for only you.
Doing what you, have called to me,
No one could ever understand,
My shame you took with those nails in your hands.

Get up, get up, he's calling your name,
You don't have to be something you're not.
Someday came suddenly and now I'm standing here.
Get up, get up, he's calling your name,
You don't have to be something you're not.
Someday came suddenly.

Here's to selfish living out the window,
Here's to the Holy Ghost, I will be faithful.

Here's to you I bring you new life.
Here's to you I bring you new life

    General Commenti finally got this song!

    the chorus was the part that made most sense to me:


    "Get up, get up, he's calling your name"

    Jesus has came down to earth and is calling you.


    "You don't have to be something you're not"

    People on earth always try to like be different than who they truly are to fit in to the crowd, but God doesn't care how you dress and stuff like that, just your soul.


    "Someday Came Suddenly"

    All Christians believe that Jesus will return to earth "someday", and now he is, suddenly. So that "someday" that he was planned to return, just "came suddenly"!



    Of course this meaning is for Christians, since they are Christian ;).

    General CommentBeautiful lyrics.

    "And this is my call to the faithful,
    I'll be for only you.
    Doing what you, have called to me,
    no one could ever understand,
    my shame you took with those nails in your hands."

    I don't think that's too hard to understand.

    One of my favourite tracks off the album.

    MemoryWhen I first heard this song I was like, "Ok. It's a good song so far." But then it got to the "And this is my call to the faithful..." par. And even though I couldn't understand Austin the first time (lol), the power at that point of the song really got my going. and when Austin begins to say "My shame....", it is the perfect combination of dissonance and assonance. Atack Attack! 4 lyf3!!!!

    General CommentYeah, it's about dedicating your life to God as barcode said.

    The breakdown is pretty awesome, and obviously it's about taking a chance that God may not be real, but he's gonna have faith in his God's existence

    General CommentI don't think he is questioning the existence in God at all. Just simply saying he is devoting his life to Him. The only part that you could confuse for that would be

    "I'll be the best I can for you,
    I'll take this chance you will be true.
    Tell me your reason why,
    tell me why you're alive."

    Which is talking about believing God will do what He says, not questioning His existence

    General CommentI love this song. (:
    So much. <3.
    Hm, I think the song is referring to God.
    "As I stare through these tears,
    I see your lips start to turn.
    This world is so un-perfect,
    this love is so un-worth it.
    When you're here I don't need all the things I had,
    Once before I was someone but that's not who I am."
    Perfect quote describing how wonderful God is. :)
