Let me show you what I'm made of
Good intentions are not enough
To get me through today and this life.
You're in the basement watching the TV,
I'm on the second floor watching the ceiling.
We sleep underneath the same big sky at night.
I dream the same dream we can fly
You can run from me
You can hide from me
But I am right beside you
In this life.
Let me tell you who you really are
You're my comfort
You're not a superstar
I can reach up and bring you back down onto the ground
And give you everything you dream about
You can run from me
You can hide from me
But I am right beside you
In this life.
I'll give you all the things that I never get
Give you all I have and have no regrets
Take you to the places that I've never been
Forgive you all the things that you can't forget
Take away the pain with my healing hands
Wash away your sins and set your spirit free
You can run from me
You can hide from me
But I am right beside you
In this life.
Let me show you what I'm made of

    Ple have good intentions but sometimes that really isn't enough or what i need. I might live in the same state as people but that doesn't mean we talk or get along. Sure at night we sleep under the same "sky" but u know we have nothing in common any more. These certain people run from me and hide from me and in away it makes me think u know this is what god means in a sense, yes u can run from him but no you can't hide from him. He is always right beside u if you'll just turn and look at him he can help u with anything no matter how big your problem might be. In this life there are many choice

    She's trying to prove herself to this guy that maybe hasn't noticed or thinks he's too good for her. They are in the same place and yet miles apart, so apart the only thing they have in common is sleeping under the sky. But she dreams that they can fly, which I think means that they can be together which draws me to Lois Lane/ Superman lore which I love. She tells him that he can run and hide but she's right beside him in this life, letting him know that even though he's pushing her away she's there for him going through the same things. Then she tells him that he's her comfort, and not a superstar, so it doesn't matter to her what his title is or his occupation as she vows to give him things he won't give himself. A lovely song, reminds me of my own unrequited lover...it's a real bittersweet song...

    Hey fellow bLoggers..
    This song may be an oLdie but it's a good one!
    it's cool and Chantal Kreviazuk is one of Avril Lavigne's friends..
    even her bestfriend! Choosing a song is not about how new it is..
    I even like songs which was famous in the late 80's and 70's! Even songs before the 19th Century! They're still retro cool, that's why i gave a three-star rating to this song.. I've heard it already and I'm inviting all of you guys out there.. to listen to ALL KINDS of song, no matter how old! =)

    most people have good intentions but sometimes that really isn't enough or what i need. i might live in the same state as people but that doesn't mean we talk or get along. sure at night we sleep under the same "sky" but u know we have nothing in common any more. these certain people run from me and hide from me and in away it makes me think u know this is what god means in a sense, yes u can run from him but no you can't hide from him. he is always right beside u if you'll just turn and look at him he can help u with anything no matter how big your problem might be. in this life there are many choices that you are going to have to make and i hope that i'm making the right ones and i hope you do too. GOD IS MY COMFORT. you know he's not some big super star but he is in my eyes the greatest hero there is and ever will be. And i've had to forgive a lot of people but i just can't forget. and then there r the things that i'm still trying to forgive people for because the really hurt me... and i feel like i've showed a lot of people what i'm made of and i'm still showing everyone else. I'm just hoping and praying that i don't make any mistakes and that i do what god wants, right now i'm still pretty confused, but i believe he's starting to show me the bigger picture.
