The depth of my soul in the depth of your voice
With words I've tried to find since I have been alive
This whole world stopped when you spoke

Your grieving stabs me, I've lost you too
Just hearing your love is never enough

Bittersweet embrace
Fit or run in place
Don't leave me so thirsty
Or else hush this hurry
Weight on me
Weighs more than me
So wait with me and we'll stop crying

The pent up flood gates maintained in your tone
Though its all we can give, it isn't where we live
Through dim reflection we know

The depth of my soul in the depth of your voice
With words I've tried to find since I have been alive
This whole world stopped when you spoke

Bittersweet embrace
Fit or run in place
Don't leave me so thirsty
Or else hush this hurry
Weight on me
Weighs more than me
So wait with me and we'll stop crying

You're a revolutionary
Bittersweet love
You're a revolutionary
Bittersweet love

Bittersweet embrace
Fit or run in place
Don't leave me so thirsty
Or else hush this hurry
Weight on me
Weighs more than me
So wait with me and we'll stop crying

    General CommentGreat song.
    One thing that interested me was the line "The pent up flood gates maintained in your tone"
    In their other song Again, one part mentions floodgates too. "The floodgates are breaking and pouring out". Hmm, anyone know if thats coincidence or intentional? Do floodgates have meaning?

    General CommentI love the chord progression of the chorus. Neato riffs and a very different rythmic pattern than most Flyleaf songs. I like it!

    General CommentNow I could be wrong but, I think it's about god. Most Flyleaf songs are religious I'm not religious myself but, it kind of makes sense. Something of the sort.

    - The depth of my soul in the depth of your voice

    She's saying that when she hears his calling you knows it's right.

    - With words I've tried to find since I have been alive

    She's been searching for something, a reason maybe and has been her whole life. Maybe a reason for living.

    - This whole world stopped when you spoke

    When she heard gods words she knew she had found that reason.

    It might also be about Jesus I'm not completely sure but, it seems to fit.

    I think it had to do with Lacey finding her faith though.
