I'm here again
A thousand miles away from you
A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am
I tried so hard
Thought I could do this on my own
I've lost so much along the way

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole

I've come undone
But you make sense of who I am
Like puzzle pieces in your eye

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole!

I tried so hard! So hard!
I tried so hard!

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole
So you can make me whole

    ok all you guys are right in alot of ways and some of you are wrong in others. Firstly, UDONTCARE there is more to being a christian then believing in GOD, even satan believes in the Alpha and the Omega. A true christian believes that Jesus Christ was the son of god who died on the cross to save our sins. They ask him to fill us with his holy spirit and guide us in our ways, we do not become perfect as many may think but we strive to not sin even though it is impossible.
    Secondly the song is written by a band who is considered a "roaring lion" they write most of thier lyrics the Lord our Saviour yes, but they leave them open so that mainstream listeners can relate and maybe come to God of thier own free will if they realise thats the real point of the lyric.

    Hey Fading Existence sorry to break it to you but that song does speak about Jesus their songs are about Jesus. You are right in saying that just because they are a christian band does not mean they won't be able to write about other life situations like love,relationships,family,friends, accomplishment,sadness,grief and death. Just remembe that the heart can fool you but your intution and soul won't nor will the holy spirit but you problably don't understand about the holy spirit. Nothing in this world is for guarnteed or for sure everything is always changing nothing is certain but one one is GOD

    Kami, listen buddy hmmm I hate to assume but I know your not a
    christian.

    Bekah how old are you why do you say think come on girly say like you mean don't say I think say this is about the void and emptiness that is real you want judt shrivel up and die but when you find that one reall consistent never ending or non stop loving and affection true love the one and only Jesus can fill that horrible disgusting emty shell of us well it messy,painful, hopeless and lonely world without him. AMEN!!!

    I think this song is describing what so often happens to us when we try to do things on our own apart from God... we end up in a mess. Nothing and no one can fill that void or emptiness except for God. Only he can make us whole, truly satisfied, and at peace.

    I'm sorry, but i agree with fading existence. This song may have been written about god, and all you christians can have fun with that, but for those of us who aren't christian, it takes on a completely different meaning. I've actually been trying to become christian, but then i see something like this, where christians gang up on a non-christian because he has his own opinion and it's different, and i think "wait... Why am i trying to become that? "

    This song doesn't have to be thought of as a reference to god or religion. A song can speak its message to anybody regardless of belief, and the message doesn't have to be the same for everybody. I'm atheist, and not afraid to admit it, but this song still resonates deeply with me and carries a powerful message, a story.
    The first time I listened to this song, it touched my heart. This song has a deep meaning behind it. To me, this is the story of having so much happen in your life, everything is falling apart, and you need someone to help you up. Then you find someone, they call out to you. You find someone who gives you the help, the comfort, healing and love you've so desperately sought for so long.
