Have you heard, have you heard,
About this girl who was ripped up
By her roots
Have you heard, what she learned?

Like humility, you win when you lose
I have learned, I have learned
The most horrifying nights have an end
I was hurt, I was lost.

In the dark I found a way to a friend
I am standing here in my ravine.
Once again I see a piece of the sky
And my joy'll never be denied

'Cause I was meant to be here,
The only place on earth
Where you are near, where you are near
Was a flower, so frail,

And I let the trees grow wild around me.
Grew so high, hid the sky,
Shaded everything I needed to see
Then one night, someone came

Took a knife an ripped me up by my roots
Tossed astray, far away.
In my darkest night I started to pray
I am standing

Why do you, why do you ask
Why I'm not blaming my god?
I'll tell you, I'll tell you what,
He was the only one there

I am standing

    General CommentOh my god!! I cant believe no one commented on this song. It's so gd!!! N e ways, i think this song is about a girl who feels used by her bf after he breaks up with her and she finds peace and solace with God."He was the only one there"
    "­Then one night someone came
    Took a knife an ripped me up by my roots
    Tossed astray, far away
    In my darkest night I started to pray"

    Thats when her bf broke up with her. Its kinda sad...
