Like a foolish dreamer, trying to build a highway to the sky
All my hopes would come tumbling down, and I never knew just why
Until today, when you pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes
Well I've been blind all these wasted years and I thought I was so wise
But then you took me by surprise

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed
Until your love broke through
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me
Until your love broke through

All my life I've been searching for that crazy missing part
And with one touch, you just rolled away the stone that held my heart
And now I see that the answer was as easy, as just asking you in
And I am so sure I could never doubt your gentle touch again
It's like the power of the wind

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed
Until your love broke through
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me
Until your love, until your love, broke through

    General CommentIf I tried to write all the autobiographical information for why Keith wrote this song it would take several pages, so I'm just going to write what this song means to me. Plus, I don't want to steal the words away from anyone else who'd like to add info about Keith. Suffice it to say, though, that Keith experimented with drugs throughout his teen years and was constantly joining up with anyone else who would join him in his spiritual quests for truth. When he finally found Jesus (or as he would say, Jesus found him) he realized all the wisdom he thought he'd had was really just a curtain that hung over his eyes, a stone that held his heart inside a tomb, and Jesus rolled it all away. It's hard to describe to anyone who doesn't know Jesus what that's like. To realize how dark it is inside you, and to realize that, given an eternity, if there weren't a hell, you would create it inside yourself, by the choices that you make, and to realize like a heroin addict or a pedophile, that you can't stop doing the things you do. Then to begin despising your own behavior. Then to realize and even agree with God that you deserve to live in hell. Then most unexpectedly, God comes down and bears your punishment for you and sets you free. You realize you've never actually known freedom before. It's devastating. It brings you to your knees. It hurts like the light of the sun in your eyes, when you've spent your entire life inside cave. It's like Edmund in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, in the middle of this mysterious one from beyond the sky pays the death penalty for you. Words fail me.
