"When You're Around" as written by Matthew Arnold Thiessen, Stephen Cushman, Matthew Ryan Hoopes and Brian Lee Pittman....
Like a child having nightmares
I will run into your arms
I'll give you all of my cares and
This world will do me no more harm

When you're around
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
To let you know just what I'm feeling

I want to stay longer.
I made you a place within my heart
With you I'm so much stronger
That's why I'm glad we'll never have to part

    General CommentI think it is mroe about Jesus than any earthly thing. I mean think about it " I want you too stay longer" "I will give you all of my cares" "with you I'm so much stronger" Those all reference god in my opinion

    General CommentHmm...I really don't see how this relates to God in any way at all....But that's just my opinion.

    General CommentThe fact that Relient K makes direct references to Jesus or God in many of their songs (like Softer To Me, Less Is More, The Rest Is Up To You), and have made no attempt to hide the faith in God that they all have, leads me to believe that this song IS about Jesus and the great love between the writer of this song and his Savior. Also, I've felt this same way about God, and could tell by the first listen that this song is about God and His never-ending, unconditional, saving love.

    General CommentThis is a good song for any strong relationship, but I think for this particular group they probably are talking about God, since they are a Christian band...and the line "That's why I'm glad well never have to part" would basically apply to someone who isn't human, in my opinion
