Cut it out, cut it out
I know it's what you're wanting to say

Burning up, burning up
I know why you're feeling this way

There's an ache you can't erase
A yearning that you can't replace

And you want Him, and you need Him
But you act like He's not there
Yeah, you know that you're hollow
And something's missing here
So you push and you pull the hole in your soul
But you can't make the hunger disappear

You got a rusted out lock on your door
Getting ready to break
You've held back love long enough
I think it's time to cave

You're waiting for a sign
The fact is faith is blind

Do you want to spend your whole life jaded?
Stuck in a rut that you created
Why don't you break the cycle?
Let love win

    Fireflight is a truely amazing band and they are awesome in concert. This song is epic and it's so true. I used to cut myself, but I felt the need for something more. The need for God.

    this song is so true with sooo many people! people are always looking for the missing piece of them, and try everything other than Jesus because they don't want to accept that there is a Being, even more powerful then anyone can even fathom, who will judge whether or not we will go to heaven. But what they may not know is that all God wants is to get close to YOU so that you can have a relationship with Him and live FOREVER WITH HIM IN PARADISE. people just don't realize how much God really has in store for them. I think it's pretty amazing that a God who created EVERYTHING you see, including ALL of space, is concerned for US land loves US out of everything He created, WE are most important to Him. We out of EVERYTHING int the universe are so small, yet so loved! just think of it like this: pretend the room your in is everything God created. all of space, everything! you are in a galaxy waaayyy smaller than this period . and God cares sooo much for you! more than you will ever know! what this song is saying is that all people need is God to fill that empty hollowness inside us. and guess what? it's so simple to get started: just kneel down, humble yourself, and pray for God's forgiveness, and that Jesus will come into your heart. ask and you shall receive! for God so loved YOU that He gave his ONE AND ONLY Son so that if you beleive in Him and are willing to follow HIM, you WILL have eternal life, and that emptiness is FILLED! When Jesus died on the cross, guess what? He LITERALLY thought of YOU!!!
