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]

    ok first of all they are NOT christion they have said that in countless interviews so this song has nothing to do with religion. The lyrics mean exactly what they say, there is no hidden meaning, its about a person who has been alone for a long time and someone comes a long that makes them feel whole again that they can care about

    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 so far from my home...
