There are days when I feel
The best of me is ready to begin.
Then therere days when I feel
Im letting go and soaring on the wind.
Cause Ive learned in laughter or in pain
How to survive.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the love that changes me.
See I don't know how, but there's powr
When Im on my knees.

I can be in a crowd
Or by myself, in almost anywhere
When I feel there's a need
To talk with god; he is emmanuel.
When I close my eyes no darkness there,
There's only light.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the love that changes me.
See I don't know how, but there's powr
In the blue skies, in the midnight
When Im on my knees.

I get on my knees, I get on my knees;
There I am before the love that changes me.
See I don't know how, but there's powr
When Im on my oh, when Im on my,
When Im on my knees.

    For me, it simply means that, god is always there and we can call onto him anytime. Everything is possible when we get on our knees..

    In my own opinion the meaning of this song is that there is a girl that is losing a hope.. She didn't know that there is a real companion when you are suffering trouble which is god alone.. And no one else can compare the love of god .. In hebrew 13:5 "i will never leave you nor forsake you"
