Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet
Toward home, a land that I've never seen
I am changing: less and less asleep
Made of different stuff than when I began
And I have sensed it all along
Fast approaching is the day

[CHORUS 1]
When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through
I'll be found in you

There's distraction buzzing in my head
Saying in the shadows it's easier to stay
But I've heard rumours of true reality
Whispers of a well-lit way

[CHORUS 1]
When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through
I'll be found in you

You make all things new
You make all things new
You make all things new
You make all things
You make all things

[CHORUS 1]
When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
When time and space are through
I'll be found in you

[CHORUS 2]
When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
Every fear and accusation under my feet
When time and space are through
I'll be found in you

    They say darknest is the place to hide
    when the light is so bright
    so you won't see the scars
    that silently killing you tight
    but you can't close your eyes
    'coz you know deep inside
    that these things will make you strong
    no matter what the light wants you to see
    there's always something underneath

    This is definately a song anticipating heaven. I sense so influence from C. S. Lewis in the song where he describes heaven a, more or less, a greater reality then we are experiencing here on earth. In heaven is "true reality" whereas earth, in comparison, is simply shadows. I believe it reflects Lewis' book "The Great Divorce."
