something to bloom but not my eyes i'm waiting for you alone in my room except for the flies looking for light my hands held with dark why is it so hard for me i hold back my heart and it all falls apart again two seconds from the end why am i the same it makes no sense when you keep promising change why is it so hard for me it's not right this time i'm way left of right i guess i just should have known it's always like this it hasn't always been i never saw the change but i need one again something so true and still so full of lies i'm high on your smile coming down on your words i guess i just should have known

    General CommentI'd have to say, single handedly because of the harmonies and voice layering, that this is the best song on Fallen Star Collection. I'd say it's also the most underestimated song on the album too. I doesn't stand out like the earlier songs. I'm also still amazed that Jared can sing so well while rocking on the drums.

    General Commentanother very good song by Brandtson. "I'm waiting for You alone in my room". I think that's like he's waiting for God, waiting for change. "looking for light, my hands held with dark" he's looking for light, for a hope... but he's still held in the bondage of the world he's left in. "Why is it so hard for me? I hold back my heart and it all falls apart again two seconds from the end." He's saying that he knows the reason that he's not getting the results he wants is because he pulls his heart back before anything can happen or change, because he wouldn't be able to deal with the dissappointment if God didn't do something or if God weren't there. "Why am I the same? It makes no sense when you keep promising change." He doesn't understand why God has promised such a drastic change when he doesn't feel anything happening. "it's always like this. It hasn't always been. I never saw the change, but I need one again." He's frustrated and says "it's always like this", but he knows the truth, that it wasn't always dry like this. he realizes now that he changed before without seeing it, and he just wants to grow again because he feels so dry. "something so true and still so full of lies", he's saying that this change that Jesus can bring into your life can be a lot of lies and plain out christian propaganda, but the change itself is something so pure and beautiful... "I'm high on your smile, coming down on your words. I guess I just should have known." He's saying that he no longer feels dry because he can see God's smile again and feel the high that comes with His presence. "I guess I just should have known", he's saying he should have known all along that God was there and he would see Him again.
    Anyway, that's what I think. Love you kids!
