Isn't it easier, if you want it like that
To run away, baby, never come back
Than to sit around and cry
Oh honestly

If you try to find a problem here, you probably will
And it's okay to cry, and it's right to try
Just don't let it bring on a standstill
'Cause these things all take time

So listen to the wind blow over the branches
Listen to the waves crash on the shore
I don't have the big plan, just small glances
And every now and then I'm still unsure
Oh honestly

Would you try and grasp at an empty heaven
Or fake your hopes on a rain that may not fall
I'm not expressing failure
I'm just suggesting to walk you first crawl
And when they ask you why
Tell them

Listen to the wind blow over the branches
Listen to the waves crash on the shore
I don't have a big plan, just small glances
And every now and then I'm still unsure

I failed to recognise that the curtain had come down
I tried to apologise but they'd already skipped town

Isn't it easier, if you want it like that
To run away, baby, never look back
Than to sit around and cry

Listen to the wind blow over the branches
Listen to the waves crash on the shore
I don't have a big plan, just small glances
And every now and then I'm still
Gonna listen to the wind blow over the branches
Listen to the waves crash on the shore
You'll never move ahead if you don't take chances
And it's okay to be
Yeah it's okay to be unsure
Oh honestly

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about a person who feels very small and uncertain about the world around them, how they could run away and forget it all. but God is sitting there, reminding them that He has their back and knows the big picture so they dont have to. They just have to trust in Him and everything will be alright. I think this song also tells us it is ok to doubt God sometimes, cuz it is human nature to do so.
