Stand in the mirror and,
Try to imagine, forever
What does it look like?
Facing my greatest, endeavor

Suddenly closing my eyes
Hands up for the very first time
I'm closing my eyes

Tell me don't give up
Tell me there's someone out there
Give me a pure love,
Give me a forever that we can both share

Show me it's okay,
Show me it's alright,
That I'm far from crazy for living by faith and not by sight

Will he be proud of,
All of the things I've done, my mistakes,
The things that I regret,
Wishing that I could forget,
My heart breaks,

Suddenly closing my eyes,
Hands up for the very first time
I'm closing my eyes,

Tell me don't give up
Tell me there's someone out there
Give me a pure love
Give me a forever that we can both share
Show me it's okay,
Show me it's alright
That I'm far from crazy for living by faith and not by sight

(Guitar)

Eyes can only see so far
Tired of wishing on all these stars
So I close my eyes and pray
Nothing comes to mind so I let my heart say;

Tell me don't give up
Tell me there's someone out there
Give me a pure love
Give me a forever that we can both share

Show me it's okay,
Show me it's alright,
That I'm far from crazy for living by faith and not by sight

Tell me don't give up
Tell me there's someone out there
Give me a pure love
Give me a forever that we both can share

Show me it's okay,
Show me it's alright
That I'm far from crazy for living by faith and not by sight

Give me a love, give me a love, give me a pure love
Give me a love, give me a love, a pure love.

    I think the writer is talking about god and asking him to show her that she's not so crazy for believing in something she can't see with the human eye, such as god, himself.

    It's about god. How pure, how great, god's love is for us. That no matter what mistakes we make, no matter what challanges we face. He is there. He will catch us. He will love us forever.

    This song means to me that we all just want someone to tell us that it's ok and that there is someone waiting out there for us and that sometimes when we are tired of looking for them then we can go on faith that they're still out there

    For me it was like surrendering all of the hurts and sorrows and just trust to what cannot be seen by mere eyes.

    Rachel is longing for true love and according to the listeners, she is talking to god and made a prayer in a form of this song. Beautiful ain't it?
