All the phones have rung and rung
They're off the hook, all but one
And all the mail stacked up inside
Up from the floor, a mile high

And like one would, like a child
I'm asking
Like I could knock on your door
Will you let me in?

And Dear God
I found out the same things we learn when we die
I found out the truth is it's all a big lie
I find that the words are hard to describe
I tell you I'm lost here, awaiting reply

Climbing trees and paper planes
Life as a kid, we're all the same
Tears of joy, and sullen hearts
Sticks and stones and broken arms

And like one would, like a child
I'm asking
Like I could knock on your door
Will you let me in?

And Dear God
I found out the same things we learn when we die
I found out the truth is it's all a big lie
I find that the words are hard to describe
I tell you I'm lost here, awaiting reply
I found out what's wrong, and it's not you or I
Or anyone else that you chose to deny
It seems like the madness of choice in the life
Has made it all clear if we run or we hide

And Dear God
I found out the same things we learn when we die
I found out the truth is it's all a big lie
I find that the words are hard to describe
I tell you I'm lost here, awaiting reply
I found out what's wrong, and it's not you or I
Or anyone else that you chose to deny
It seems like the madness of choice in the life
Has made it all clear if we run or we hide

    In my opinion, the meaning is that god can do anything to us, as we live, we found out and understand more about the things in life... And like a child we always wonder about life, we want to understand more and more, but only god has the anwers, ... He can make all clear...

    As a kid the world seems endless, there are no limits to your dream. As we grow up, grow older life and society start putting limits, telling you what's possible and what isn't. And slowly we start to wonder why were we so amazed as kids, we forget what we have known.
