Dear God, I wrote this letter to put my thoughts on paper,
Sometimes life seems like a criminal without a well planned caper,
I know You are the answer but I forget the question,
How do I know You love me when no one else seems to care

I've tried everything I thought might help me understand things,
And it didn't tell me anything or even play my heart strings,
So I'm writing You this letter to wait for Your reply,
Cause I'm so tired of not believin'
I'll give You a try

I don't know, but I got this feeling,
That today's gonna be my turning point,
Everyday I get a little bit closer,
It feels so good to finally be over

I don't know, but I think I'm learning,
This type of thing's never been my calling card,
Sometimes you just gotta look closer,
Instead of searchin' so hard

So when I start to get down and the world fills up around me,
And my head starts spinnin' like a top,
From the way my heart beat's poundin' I can look up for a second,
And know that I'm alright I spent so long, not believin',
It's my turn to fly

I don't know, but I got this feeling,
That today's gonna be my turning point,
Everyday I get a little bit closer,
It feels so good to finally be over

I don't know, but I think I'm learning,
This type of thing,
Never been my calling card,
Sometimes you just gotta look closer,
Instead of searchin' so hard

How I missed You every time I look for you

I don't know, but I got this feeling,
That today's gonna be my turning point,
Everyday I get a little bit closer,
It feels so good to finally be over

I don't know, but I think I'm learning,
This type of thing's never been my calling card,
Sometimes you just gotta look closer,
Instead of searchin' so hard
Instead of searchin' so hard

    it's like he's asking how he'll know if God really loves him when no one around him seems to care about him. you have to look closer instead of searching so hard. instead of wasting your time searching, look closer and you'll find what you're looking for. i know you'll think it's corny, but it's the real deal and it's very touching.

    ...this song is really touching. it tells a story of a young man who was searching something for his whole life, but didnt find it. what he did found (or known) is that only GOD can help him throughout his life .

    I love this line:

    "Sometimes you just gotta look closer,
    Instead of searchin' so hard"

    and its a very odd song by fm static ( they seldom play songs with piano only.)

    Dear god is a song meant to let everyone be reminded that there is the one who writes our destinies and we need not to worry about anything we just need to remember that god is there and we need not to search for him, he is always there
