It's undeniable how brilliant you are
In an unreliable world you shine like a star
It's unforgettable now that we've come this far
It's unmistakable that you're undeniable

February fifth, Friday morning, purple dawn
Broke a yawn as a I stepped through the fog, like I stepped to a song
A moment like a poem; you wish you could hold it
I shut my eyes like it's frozen; it's gone when I open

It slipped passed the clouds right there where it lingered
Like your band and a girl could slip through your fingers
My feet hit the ground like a beat for the lonely
On a path beaten down by the crowds in the morning

If only I could touch past the phony
If only they were there now to hold me
As the questions keep droning

You're the only one who stuck it out last night
The only other one who caught the other line
You're the only one when this world collides
The one that I can't deny

It's undeniable how brilliant you are
In an unreliable world you shine like a star
It's unforgettable now that we've come this far
It's unmistakable that you're undeniable

It's my last year here
My first class moved to portable 'A'
Under construction since summer
And it's cold today

I can see my breath and what's left of the west parking lot
And all the spaces that we fought
And it all seems forgotten, left in the bottom
In past piles of rubble in puddles of rain water

That hurt last night when I left like that
When I won't come back
Speaking my peace to the past
I can't help but wonder who is this wind at my back
A whisper to walk on come on from all that

It's undeniable how brilliant you are
In an unreliable world you shine like a star
It's unforgettable now that we've come this far
It's unmistakable that you're undeniable

How am I gonna take it away in this winter wind?
You found me on a summer breeze
How am I gonna run away when the autumn breaks
Now that you found me in the spring
Come on and sing it out

    General CommentI found this song really encouraging. The only Friend that can "stick it out" and is there when the night falls is Christ. The only One who will never let you down. Humans do, and that's ok. Haven't we all.
    And it's hopeful, and is about new beginnings...forgiveness and restoration and moving on from the past and the inetivable hurts of life that try to cripple and bind us and into the new seasons...spring and summer, which are spoken of in the last part of his song.

    And Christ is brilliant, because he not only sticks it out but is the one who heals us and works things out better than they would have been if there never had been any hurt. He is the "wind at our backs" encouraging me to "come on from all that."

    General CommentBullet exemplifies such a connection with "Undeniable," a beautiful pop song with an epic chorus and a catchy acoustic hook. The song itself finds inspiration in a troubled young man who told Kearney about his need to make changes in his life. Ironically, he was a student at a local high school, which was under construction at the time. Kearney, who drove by the school every time he went to the studio, turned the school's demolition into a metaphor for the uprooting of the young man's life. "The roots of that song are really in seeing joy on the other side of pain-of coming to know God and the undeniable nature of who He is."

    General CommentI think it means something diffrent to everyone. To some he is talking about God, and others it is about that one special person who stuck by him. I can see both sides. Love the song either way, I have it as one of my ring tones.

    General CommentThis song is about Jesus Christ, just ask Mat, he'll tell you. Most of his songs are. Jesus is the only one who truly shines like a star, who's brilliant, and when this world collides, the one you can't deny. His love is so deep for each of us.

    General Comment I think it's about him leaving and forgetting his past, but he knows theres only been one person who's always going to be there for him. This is when of my favorite songs of all time. I get it.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, his first radio single and one of his greatest songs, I timeless hit that will forever be remembered in my heart. Mat Kearney is a talented individual who deserves more recognition than what he receives.
