"Shape of a Sound" as written by and Richard Wouters Andrew Mckellar....
Spirits in the night
Motion in the deep
Waters running high
Calling out to me
Don't know what you want
Don't know what you need
Don't know if it's right,
This beauty in the night

Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Only you...

Two ships in the dawn
Two hands reaching
For the spark
Just to see what I
Will find in the dark

Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Only you...

When I was a boy,
I dreamed a lot
Of wonders I loved
But soon forgot
Now I'm old
And the dreams have changed
The palisade is all rearranged

But if my body's a temple
That's built from the ground
And my soul is created
By the shape of a sound,
Then all that I lost
Will soon be found

Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Strange as it may seem,
My body leans on only you
Only you...

    General CommentThis is a song about finding purpose, meaning.

    He feels a desire to pursue something, a calling, but is reluctant, feeling that he doesn't really know where to go, what all of it means. He grasps for "the spark", for inspiration, something new with purpose, but still finds himself dissatisfied. He eventually finds peace knowing that his body leans on "only you" (presumably God).

    Knowing that his body is "a temple that's built from the ground" and his soul was "created by the shape of a sound" (he was created by an almighty God) reassures him that all that all of his uncertainty, all that he lost: the dreams, wonders, and ideas that he once had, will be restored.
