"Please Let That Be You" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
Lost out in the machine, away
Lifeless, slow and cold
Alone at home
Alone too long
Walk around the complex
No visitors
No oxygen
Just me, no movement
(Chorus)
Please let that be you
Knocking on my door so loud
Just like you do
Bringing a message or two
You know you are my faith
And I love you
Empty, everything's technical
Sterile, and endless
Inside a malfunction
Observe and obsess
(Chorus)
except:
Ringing my phone just like
I wish you would do
Calling with some good news
(resume reg. chorus.)
You are my faith and I love you
Stand by my side, always be true
You are my faith and I love you
I raise my right hand and swear it's true
You are my faith
You are my faith
You are my faith
You are my faith
Please let that be you
Singing my song so nice sounding like you do
Just humming along to your tune
You know you are my faith
and I love you.

    General CommentFirst off, I never thought of it as an institution. But it obviously fits well.

    The only parts that really stuck out to me when I first heard this was:
    "Please let that be you knocking on my door so loud just like you do."
    "Please let that be you ringing my phone right now like I wish you would do."
    "Please let that be you singing my song so nice souding like you do"

    And to me, it seemed like typical start of a relationship. Where you're always sitting around at home secretly hoping that the person will call or show up to see you.

    General Commentit sounds like somebody locked up in some sort of institution...but with this side note of their soulmate or true love. maybe this person is stuck in this cold environment and just dreams of contact with something loving all the time...that's the best i can figure, but i loooove this song. i wish i could be a keyboard and make those sounds.

    General Commentyou were there too? Awesome.
    Anyway, it does seem like a guy in an institution, or maybe a hospital. Wherever he is, every time someone knocks on his door or clls him, he's hoping it will be his special lady. I think we can all relate to that sometimes.
