My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you
This fire rising through my being
Burning I'm not used to seeing you

I'm still alive, I'm still alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place
The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I'm still alive, I'm still alive, We're still alive

And I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

So I cry
Holy
The light is white
Holy
And I see you
Only you

But I'm alive, I'm still alive, We're still alive

And I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

Take my hand
I give it to you
Now you own me
All I am
You said you would never leave me
I believe you
I believe

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healed

    This song is not about friends, boyfriends, or people in general. It's about god. She is explaining how no matter what happens to you in this life or whatever you do in this life, god is still holding onto you, and if you ask him, he will help you through all your tough times, which is why in the chorus she says: savoring this heart thats healing. It's also flyleaf's way of giving everything they are to god, which is stated prtety clearly when they sing: take my hand, i give it to you, now you own me, all i am. You said you will never leave me, i believe you, i believe. Whether you're an atheist, or christian (like mex3) flyleaf's meaning for this song is god is everywhere and he loves everyone.

    This song makes me cry and miss my boyfriend but feel closer to him then ever before. He showed me this song by txtin me the 1st 4 lines in the middle of the night and I like the acoustic version better. He ships out to the Navy soon and I know that if I keep listening to his favorite bands, the 5 years he's gone will seem like nothing. I feel like this is the song that really solidified how I feel about him, about us, and this is the song that'll keep us together until he gets back and marries me. I love him, and I know that he'll be ok, this song gives me hope.

    This is about how Lacey's relationship with God. she used to be an atheist before she started going to church with her aunt, then she became Christian.

    I love this song so much. It's most likely a good song to listen to after going through a really bad break-up. Then again what would I know... I've never had a boyfriend. Emphasis on never. This song is mostly about how even when you and the one you love are apart you're still together. Meaning that just becos you aren't with someone and you feel alone you can just tell that they're still with you.
