How long have I been in this storm
So overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form?
Water's getting harder to tread
With these waves crashing over my head.

If I could just see you
Everything would be alright.
If I'd see you
This darkness would turn to light.

And I will walk on water,
And you will catch me if I fall,
And I will get lost into your eyes,
And everything will be alright,
And everything will be alright.

I know you didn’t bring me out here to drown,
So why am I ten feet under and upside down?
Barely surviving has become my purpose
Because I’m so used to living underneath the surface.

If I could just see you
Everything would be alright.
If I'd see you
This darkness would turn to light.

And I will walk on water,
And you will catch me if I fall,
And I will get lost into your eyes,
And everything will be alright.
And I will walk on water,
And you will catch me if I fall,
And I will get lost into your eyes,
And everything will be alright,
Know everything is alright,
Everything's alright.

    General CommentI love this song. I think it's about a guy who is missing his girlfriend/significant other. I also think it's an overwhelming relationship "I know you didn’t bring me out here to drown, / So why am I ten feet under and upside down?"

    General CommentI think that this song has religous meaning to it. Jesus walked on water, and he said that people with faith could do the same. " And I will walk on water" And the drowning could be the singer feeling weak. Take for instance viewing the Twin Towers falling. Some people asked "why would God allow this to happen?" I feel that underwater represents doubt. I guess i could relate to this song because it mirrors some moments i've felt in my faith. Weakenss. Going on my trait of thought, you know that If God was here, everything would be alright. The singer knows this, and looks for God. And he knows that he was meant to be where he is now, and doesn't know why...Sorry for Rambling ^_^

    General CommentThis song is pretty obvious as to Jason's intentions. It's about putting your trust in Jesus. The parts about walking on the water in the storm and trusting somebody is a reference to when Peter got out of the boat and walked on water to greet Jesus. But yeah, this song is about letting go and trusting God.
