Digging a hole I can't get out of
Deeper and deeper
below the surface to
find that there's nothing there
where do i go from here?
give me something that i can feel!
back and forth
here we go again

what will it take to keep it together?
Ive'never felt so empty

keep me close, keep me close
keep my head above water
I need to hear your voice
I can't do this on my own

beneath the sun I am rotting
just like the ones
that came before me
I cannot deny
My own walk has become a crawl
I never felt so
I never felt so lost

I know
I could never run far enough
to escape your love
so why do i keep running

now the chaos is all around me!
show me the light
at the end of the tunnel
I need you to save me from myself
give me something I can feel!

keep me close, keep me close
keep my head above water
I need to hear your voice
I can't do this on my own

keep me close, keep me close
keep my head above water
I need to hear your voice
I can't do this on my own

Take all my guilt
Take all my pride
I want to know you sincerely
I'm on my knees
take all of me
I want to feel you here with me

take all my guilt
take all my pride
I want to feel you here with me

keep me close, keep me close
keep my head above water
I need to hear your voice
I can't do this on my own

    Considering they claim to be Christian safe to say he's talking to God.

    Love this fucking band

    General CommentStange questions in the song. S/he needs to be in the other person's life...in the flesh. How is that too much to ask. Confidence abounds for all but one. Explain that one.

    My InterpretationI'm assuming its a reference to Christianity and the person in the song wanting to be free from some wrong(s) that they committed or are constantly committing. They feel caught up in whatever it is and they feel trapped. They are looking to God for help.
