Is our world spinning backwards?
What has brought about this change?
Can't you see that people aren't the same?
I wish I were dreamin'
And could wake up from my sleep
And find us all the way we used to be.
Cause the love that used to be is dying
Is anybody even trying?
And I don't know how, I don't know why
But something is my soul is crying

Sometimes love has to drive a nail into its own hand
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into its own hand
One pair of hands,
Broke some bread and washed some feet
Opened eyes and soothed an angry sea,
Belonged to a man
Who could see the deepest need

And showed us the way it has to be
'Cause he knew the price that love requires
And he laid down His own desires
He stretched out His hands to save His friends
And said no other love is higher

Love can change us, love can make a way
Only love can change us, love can make a way.

I wish I were dreamin'
And could wake up from my sleep
And find us all the way we used to be

    General Commentto me it means, that the love we all see now is selfish, superficial. he's saying that real love, perfect love, is sacrifice. the "drive a nail into it's own hand" is referring to Jesus on calvary, being nailed to a cross. it was love that drove Him to do that. love for you, me, all of us.
