everything about you is a picture worth a thousand words. try as i may i try in vain. there's more to you than i could ever hope to explain. i don't think you know. i'll never be the same again. purity stood in front of me and said "i'm clumsy and my back hurts" and i thought "you're about as beautiful as God's creation gets" and i've seen oceans and sunsets that took away my breath. and you remind me of everything that's precious in His sight and i don't think you'll ever realize just how much you've touched my life. everything i thought i knew redefined in the light of you. though the white it burns my eyes. all my shadows fall behind me. i don't think you know why i'll never be the same. try as i may i try in vain. there's more to you than i could ever explain. i can't find the words for you

    General CommentI love this song.
    "purity stood in front of me and said 'i'm clumsy and my back hurts' and i thought 'you're about as beautiful as God's creation gets.'"
    One of my favorite, most meaningful lyrical exerts ever.

    General Commentthis is the type of love that I want for the person that I will marry. and that's the type of person that I want to marry. I want someone that's not physically beautiful but so much more than that... a pure, godly beauty that's upright in God's sight. and that's what I want our love to be like too. so pure and blameless. And "about as beautiful as God's creation gets".

    General CommentThis song..means alot, especially these lyrics:
    "I've seen oceans and sunsets that took away my breath and you remind me of everything that's precious in His sight. And I don't think you'll ever realize just how much you've touched my life. Everything I thought I knew, redefined in the light of you, though the white, it burns my eyes." ----these guys...sure as crud can't explain how ORIGINAL and just so meaningful that their lyrics and music are...They are coming to Knoxville,TN on Mothers Day, 2003 at Java In The Old City. It's an all ages show, 5 bucks to get in and starts at 7 p.m.! Get there early! Copeland and The Invocation are going to be there also! I recommend to check out Copeland but make sure you don't d/l the symphonic orchestra bands songs which are also by another Copeland. :)

    General Commentgahh this song, the words, they are amazing.. i read this song while i was looking for a different brandtson song, but the words.. holy sh!t, they describe perfectly how i feel about a certain person.. its amazing...
    -sadly, i went to see brandtson in concert a while ago and they cancelled, but i still went and found some great new deep elm bands that rock my socks off..
