I'm burning down the bridges that I cross
Before I ever reach the land
I'm breaking down, I'm breaking down
So careful now don't make a move
Careful now to breathe over the sound
I'm breaking down, I'm breaking now
In the time it takes to make a scene
I'm jumping off the ledge of everything
Well I'm falling down, I'm falling now
I trust in you
Your gravity will speak to me
And bring me to my knees
I'm breaking now

Am I brave enough to conquer love?
But you've given me some hope
To write a song and keep it close
So I'm calling out
Just to hear the simple sound
Of your voice and keep it close

I know that I'm a gamble here
But with your help I'm conquering my fear
Of ever breaking down
When breaking down is all that I can do
I'll scream, glory come
And I will sing of you
Singing hall-e-lu
It happens all the time
You turn water into wine
Water to wine

I'm not brave enough to conquer love
But you've given me some hope
To write a song and keep it close
So I'm calling out
Just to hear the simple sound
Of your voice and keep it close


Come on! woo
So I'm shaking like a leaf
You keep coming after me
So as long as I can breathe
I'm gonna have to sing

I'm not brave enough to conquer love
But you've given me some hope
To write a song and keep it close
So I'm calling out
Just to hear the simple sound
Of your voice and keep it close
Keep it close.

    General Commenti tried to get this as close as i could.
    my favorite song.

    I think this is about a guy who has given up on love, but with the help of god, he has regained hope and strengh to keep trying.

    General CommentI'd say it's about God being enough. like saying the Lord is my strength and he's all i need.. "just to hear the simple sound of your voice and keep it close" and also about how we can do nothing alone.
