When all I have is on the floor
Divided, divided
When I'm a world away from peace
Behind Your eyes is where I know
I'll find it, I'll find it
'Cuz who You are defines my dreams

[chorus]
You already take me there
You already take me there
You already take me there
Heaven in the here and now

When I'm a broken-hearted man
Complacent and tired
When I've been knocked out of the race
I've been a fool for long enough
To fight it, to fight it
Its in Your arms I find my place

[chorus]
You already take me there
You already take me there
You already take me there
Heaven in the here and now

You meet me where I am
Forgive me where I am

Where I lose myself in grace (Where I'm lost and found)
I want to lose myself in grace
Let Your love reign down
All over me (over me, over me)
Cover me

[chorus]
You already take me there
You already take me there
You already take me there
Heaven in the here and now
Heaven in the here and now
Heaven in the here and now

    General CommentThis is a sweeet song. One of Switchfoot's best. I like the tune. The part "I wanna lose myself in your grace let your love reign down All over me, Cover me, you already take me there" it's an awsome song. Anybody else agree?

    General CommentI think the chorus is very powerful:

    You already take me there
    Heaven in the here and now

    I think it's talking about how God grants us a certain peace while we are still on earth.

    General Commentthis song rox. it's about God giving us this peace on Earth through his love and grace. when we go thru bad stuff, God is where we should go. i luv the line "Cause who You are defines my dreams." that line totally explains it for me. it's about making God our priority and living for Him because when we do, we will find an internal peace. gotta luv this song!

    they actually go sky-diving for this music video and the ending's hilarious. everyone - definitely watch it on youtube.com or somewhere.

    i love
    "When I'm a world away from peace
    Behind Your eyes is where I know
    I'll find it"

    it's definitely to God.

    General Comment"You meet me where I am, Forgive me where I am." I love that. To mean it means that no matter how bad your messing up God will always be there for you and forgive you no matter what.

    General CommentThis is a half decent song with a pleasent enough tune an lyrics. I did not read into it being about God but if it is at least it is talking about your life and not the idea of an afterlife, no point living for the "afterlife" when you have your current (definite and short) life.
