Casting Crowns – Does Anybody Hear Her lyrics

She is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction

She is trying
But the canyon's ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She's another two years older
And she's three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even knows she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even knows she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

If judgement looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her

If judgement looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even knows she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

He is running a hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction.

    This song is really kl and its got a real meanin to it I'm a music student so I can understand the lyrics but just incase somebody can't its about a girl who dosnt get the attention she wants at home so she goes to a night club has a drink with this guy goes back to his house and.
    Then the morning after shes in the same outfit as she was when she left home the night before and goes to school and at school that's where she starts getting some strange looks from random people in the street that she has never even met and is being judged.
    It aint fair really but that's just my opinion.

    I feel this songs is about the very real problem of how many in the churches who feel they are on the "right" path can shun those who are not. Those who are troubled and alone are so very weak. So little is needed to give help to the hurting as a place to start. A kind smile of acknowledgement, a touch of the hand, a hi and how are you can be the seed that starts the hope growing. A simple gesture can make them feel they are not invisible and they matter. People who have made wrong decisions can feel that they are not good enough for the "church people" and when we don't reach out we just prove that point over and over again. Ask someone who hasn't placed their trust in The Lord and has made bad choices.

    I believe this song describes the path of someone who is trying to find a way to cope with the harsh reality of mankind. In the chorus, it obviously states that people fail to see her problems and ignore the struggles she has encountered in her life. They don't necessarily shun her out but focus too much on their own lives. It's a shame. We, as christians, should obligate ourselves to spread the love of jesus, not to judge based on whether or not someone 'looks' happy because true emotion is only skin deep. God bless "all the lost and lonely people. " they did not choose to receive such arrogance from the belittlement of our fellow christian people. Bless the ignorant ones too. They also deserve our prayers.

    This song and music video made me so sad! Yet, although they do not want to admit it, this is true for some people and churches. They can't see past a person's outward appearance and what they're doing to see that they need Jesus just as much as they do. Us being Christian and those who are hurting inside not [Christian] doesn't make us better or superior to them. We're all sinners. But it's so sad some actually think that. Z
