Last night as I slept I saw my life slip away. Then you were next to me. I couldn’t see your face but I knew that it was you. Giving me a second chance. I’ll never really understand why I cannot comprehend your love and grace. Why do I take pride in what I can’t control. How can I claim what isn’t really mine.
What’s the point to my ignorance? The music that I see. The colors in the air. The breath in my lungs tonight. Why do I fight with you sometimes? So today I walk down this road again. I understand now, some of what you said. Sometimes I lack the strength I need. But you come through, every time I fail you’re there to pick me up, when I need it most. When I’ve fallen hard you’re there no questions asked. You lift me up when I am down. Please open my eyes. Please help me understand.

    General CommentIts definately about a guys ignorance towards god but how he still loves us and he gives us a second chance and will welcome us back to the faith.

    I couldn’t see your face but I knew that it was you. Giving me a second chance. I’ll never really understand why I cannot comprehend your love and grace.

    Those lyrics put together let us know it is about god although it doesn't mention his name.
