C.S. Lewis Song Lyrics

If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here
If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary,
Then of course I'll feel nude when to where I'm destined I'm compared

[Chorus]
Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come for me

Am I lost or just less-found? on the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
Is this a soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
'Cause my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
And avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become

[Chorus]

For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love, I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, he's coming

The first verse is a close paraphrase of a C.S. Lewis quote from Mere Christianity: "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." This is the whole premise of the song, that we are not made for this world so we will hope and wait for the day of the Lord, which we are at the dawn of.

I love love love this song. I think the meaning is kind of obvious, but can be taken many ways, depending on what you want it to mean. :]

Life is too short to live for our desires of the flesh. Life would be so much easier to be of this world, but our soul desires more. Life may be hard right now, but the dawn is approaching. With the light hope is coming. He (Jesus Christ) is coming to bring us hope.

I am not religious, but this song is really awesome...

It has nothing to do with religion, but a relationship with your Maker. It's awesome you still enjoy it. : ]

It is a beautiful song, like Whirr pointed out, you can kind of take it to mean what you what. I love that about Brooke Fraser's songs.

The piano is beautiful, okay the whole song is incredibly beautiful, I know I'm going on a bit but it really is. It makes me want to stand outside at night and stare at the stars and listen to it.

I'm actually not sure how to interpret this song, or why it's called C.S. Lewis Song, but I do know that it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, seriously.

Like undeniabledreamer said, it makes you want to just go outside and stare at the stars. But personally, I think it's one of those songs that you listen to driving down a long highway, it's got that really haunting melody that fits the mood.

It's basically entirely made up of C.S. Lewis quotes. This song combines my two loves in life, music and awesome quotes.

And God. Though that should go without saying, I'm still going to say it.

"As I wait for HOPE to come for me"....doesn't make sense to me...???

It sounds like she's an angel doing her time on earth, waiting for her prison sentence to be up, so she can be free and return back to heaven.

But she must be innocent though; i don't think she committed the crime, because she keeps going on about not belonging here.

VonLemonic, I believe she is referring to Romans 8:22-24:

Amen!

Vonlemonic: God = hope

God is our hope in a world when nothing else is satisfying

Does that make any sense?

Im not very good at explaining things
