As I Lay Dying – An Ocean Between Us lyrics

Go

How many years have we waited
For a ship that never set sail?
And how many days have we wasted
Chasing a love that was not our own?
I sat ashore and watched
As one hopeless wave crashed upon another
While my thoughts ran to the highest hills
My heart never reached the sea
With only delusions of an endless journey
I am left with an ocean between you and me
An ocean between....

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

The gate to my heart has been weld shut
With the splendor of my aspirations closed in
How many years have we waited
For a ship that never set sail?
And how many days have we wasted
Chasing a love that was not our own?
Is this your salvation?

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

How many years have we waited
For a ship to never, never set sail
How many years have we waited
For a ship to never, never set sail
Never set sail

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

Is this your salvation?
Is this all you can give?
I will not stand in reflection
Of someone else's dream

    I believe this is a song about a guy chasing a girl, and the girl leads him on, yet she keeps him at an arms distance because of a another guy who she likes but has a distant relationship with.
    Is this your salvation? Is our friendship your salvation when things turn down with the other person that's distant from you.
    Is this all you can give? All you can give is what you call friendship even though the other person is there to pick up the pieces all the time.
    I will not stand in reflection of someone elses dream. I'm not going to continue picking up the pieces of your other relationship all the time, while you claim we are only friends.
    Meanwhile you are constantly waiting with for her to change her mind (the ship to set sail) and close the ocean of friendship between both of you.

    Haha I have to say I agree with two guys underneath my comment. Your all baffoons argue as much as you like about whether they are a christian band or not, and you have all proven its getting you no where, just accept the fact there is no "right" answer your all going to have your opinions what you think the band is at the end of the day.
    The bottom line is at the end of the day this is a bad a* band end of the story.

    This is a Christian band. It is about God "NOT" a girl.
    It is about some Christians waiting to go to heaven, but God did not let them in because the things they did was Unauthorized.
    Matthew 7: 20
    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
    "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord, ' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? 'Then I will tell them plainly, 'i never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! '
