When the moon hangs rogue in the sky
I wait for You
With every step You take
I'll wait for You
And I will never forget this made me feel alone
So hopelessly alone
Defeated, helpless, with nothing to call home

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but Your hand carries me
I won't let go!

And I will never forget
You made me feel alive so I'll wait for You
I'll wait for you
We've opened our hearts to sadness
Because we know it won't last long
(Because we know it won't last long)
We know love will live through darkness
Through the darkness we overcome

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but Your hand carries me
I won't let go!

When the moon hangs rogue
When the moon hangs rogue
When the moon hangs rogue
When the moon hangs rogue

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but Your hand carries me
The world may deny what you chose to believe
I know that You're here
So I'll hold on and won't let go
I won't let go!
I won't let go!

    General CommentI believe this song is all about the trials we go through in life, and how they can put us down and we feel hopeless at times, but the strong of Faith know that God rewards those who endure. God allows us to experience happiness but he also allows us to feel sadness, but we know it won't last forever. God's hand keeps us afloat when the waters are at their highest. And it's not a matter of Him letting go, it's a matter of us keeping Faith and never letting go of Him.

    "I know you're here so I'll hold on and won't let go. I won't let go, I won't let go!"

    Beautiful song, beautiful lyrics, inspiring as HTD always is. I wish they got more acclaim for their work.

    General CommentThe line "waters may rise" always made me think this song was about Noah's ark.
