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

(Bridge)
I'm alive, I'm alive

(Chorus)
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

(Bridge)
I'm alive, I'm alive

(Chorus)
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

And so I cry
The light is white
And I see you

(Bridge)
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

(Chorus)
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 believed 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

    It's about being so completly soaked in the presence of God that all you can do is just worship and cry and bask in the glory of his majesty. It's about just being alone with God and in the spirit. Realizing that nothing else maters and that all you need is to be filled with that holiness and drenched in his love. It's about accepting it and realizing that God is real and that you belong to him...

    Lacey's voice is so unusual, and I mean that in a good way. This song is so powerful. Some people don't realize that christian songs can be powerful and hard, they think all of it is soft and pretty. I love this song, it can totally relate to any christian, like me. ☺

    I agree with Jessica. I get goosebumps everytime i listen to the song. and then to watch the video and see her only look at God is so amazing...and refreshing to see on MTV. This song has actually brought me back to where i need to be, with Him.

    well whether its about her bf and her it olds a unique meaning for everyone. like i think this song is about a love for life at its best and worst.. taking every precious moment and emotion positive or negative and making the most of it. taking every life expierience and learn from it. realising that faith amd fear decides a persons fate. its about a connection with her deity.
