never forget the time you made me feel alive
when death was on my mind
or when you held onto me
when the world let me fall behind
you were love to me rather than just a word
a friend was all you were
and it changed my heart
stood next to me through the storm
felt the wounds and kept me warm
something i had never seen before
and i thank you

    General CommentThis is a song that describes when a friend is there to get you through a time of desperation...and how much it meant to have them there to help you make it through.

    General CommentThank You Timmus, you are correct, considering Underoath are a band serving the Lord. The song can be interpreted in many ways, obviously, but if you know Underoath, you know exactly what the lyrics are saying. Awesome band, awesome lyrics. Praise Jesus!

    General Commentthis song is deffinatly about jesus standing by your side through thick and thin and when you feel like you have nothing left he will be there to help you get through it... also i heard some bad news that sometime after warped tour that they are going to stop writing hXc music... i hope its not true.
