White shutters enclose
The boundaries of my heart
I gold my breath
Till the steady beating is shut out
In silence I wait for what is real
For I know the truth of my perceptions
Nothing in life matters more than you
When first feelings fade
I will still be here

    General Commentit means to me that we shouldnt let the way the world is to affect how we view things. eveyone has there own perception of wat the truth is in things...

    General CommentIt can be both. It can be about God or someone you lost. Such as a ex girlfriend or something. I know that when ever I hear this song I dont think of God.

    General CommentAlrighty now. I personally am officially sick of everyone thinking that every song ever written is about killing yourself because your girlfriend broke up with you. The only bands that sing about that are the ones that actually say "My girlfriend broke up with me, ill cut my wrists". Hence Hawthorne Heights, Matchbook Romance, etc. As I Lay Dying is a christian band and a majority of their songs are about God, including this one. Every time the word "You" is capitalized, its about God. Mmkay? Now can we please stop assuming that everytime a song sounds even remotely sad that its about someone killing themselves over a break up? Thank you.
