Pain is alive in a broken heart
The past never does go away
We were born to love
And we're born to pay
The price for our mistakes

Grace, she comes with a heavy load
Memories, they can't be erased
Like a pill I swallow, he makes me well
And leaves an awful taste

Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go

Take my notions and words to heart
This is the cry of a man
I can't bring you fortune or noble life
But I'll love you all I can

Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only you can go

Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go

    A powerful song of repentance from a man to his wife. Though God's grace finds strength to heal, the reality of memories regret is bitter to remind of how unworthy we are to be forgiven. And the only thing that allows us to move on is the knowing of God's pure love that he's allowed into our broken hearts, which allows us to receive forgiveness, and to forgive. And to know peace.

    I believe this song means that no matter if some people dont like you, you'll always know someone is always gonna love you. And you'll always be in there heart.

    I have always heard that the intimacy between a husband and wife is just a fraction of gods love for us. To me this song is a love song, whether it be between a couple or from god to his children. The words have such deep meaning and are very powerful and spiritual.

    It's a beautiful song, seems to me like it was written for god to man. Either way, i've been listening to it on repeat for a few days now :d

    My interpretation is based on the background of needtobreathe, 2 of the members (including the lead singer) are sons of a minister and have a very obvious ministry in their music. I think this song is to the lord. 'this is a cry of a man' would suggest that he is speaking to the one who is above man. Also replacing 'love' with 'you' would also suggest that this song is written to god because of scripture's mention of god being love. (1 john 4:8). I am definitley prone to mistake, but this is my humble opinion.
