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.

    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.

    On the radio show la Lloyd's Rock 30, lead singer Lacey Mosley said: "It's a song about meeting God. I remember looking at a bunch of people's Myspace when I first saw Myspace and the 'Who I'd Like To Meet' the #1 thing people picked was God. I think about that. I don't know how many times I've experienced something where I felt like God showed up and saved me or loved me for no reason sometimes. That's why I sing this song, I sing it to God. It's really intimate as well, you can think about it as a relationship between two people in love, too. I never think about it that way, but what's so cool about that is I think there's parallels everywhere - in everything in life. I think that that parallel is something that God wants to communicate to us, that he gives us relationships like that, an intimacy like that."

    "We all share the same faith. And so when we deal with the whole 'Christian band thing,' we kind of think about something P.O.D. says, like, 'If you're a Christian, it affects everything in your life. So if you're a plumber, does that make you a Christian plumber?'"
    Mosley said. "I don't know the answer. We're a band, it's part of who we are, so it comes out in our music, and it's the fuel for what we do. And finding faith saved my life. So I'm not ashamed of it at all. And most of our album reflects that."
    I got this off wikipedia.

    I don't mean to sound rude, but I don't think this song would work on twilight, yes it might give a bit of adrenaline, but the song and the movie don't really mix. The movie and books are about vampires, and physical love towards each other. As we've argued on here, this song is most likely about her and her relationship with God. Of course if we were wrong, then sure, this might be great for twilight. But personally twilight has made negative effects in my life, and this song is too good for that.
