For so long I have felt alone
Content to live with unrest
Longing faded into countless nights
That buried my weary heart
But You brought an end
To this dead hour
And meaning to a calloused life
Held in Your arms
But too far from my heart (x2)

[Chorus]:
These thoughts will carry me
Through The darkest nights
While Your eyes rest in...
These thoughts will carry me
Through The darkest nights
While your eyes rest in mine

I remember the way you looked at me
And the way you drew me close
With one deep sigh
Scattering pieces of my restless mind
Forgetting all that we have left behind [x4]

[Chorus] [x2]

    Honestly I'm not willing to automatically assume that lyrics are christian. I do know they have stated that christianity affects everything they do, but not everything they weite has to be christian. This song could be a love song, or a metaphor for something they have used as a crutch in the past. For some bands (not aild) that could be drugs. Just because tim said they're christian doesn't mean everything is about god.
