There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write
Over and over again
I'm awake and in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and
Over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
And pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope

Sing to me of the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
And laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have
For me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
And pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope

I give You my apathy
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
And pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope

    This song is made by a religious group called switchfoot. As almost everybody knows, mandy moore performs this dong to a secular audience, but if you just listen to the lyrics, it can still tell you about the lord. When saying " your galaxy," that galaxy is us as ourselves which we belong to the lord our god. Having a song in your soul that god has given you. Praying to god so that you may be his and that god is your only hope. Using the voice god gave you to sing with a symphony and bringing it to the lord almighty. That the lord has plans for everyone.

    Mo anam cara back to my soul mate. She is also my only hope. She is my dream, past, future and hope. Her beauty is both external and internal, she transcends my world... She is my persistence of time!

    I really like the song. Its written to god. But i only like the switchfoot one since that was the original and i think it is sung with a more dark take on it and this song is supposed to be like that.

    this song speaks from the heart. it's very emotional. honestly, everytime i sing this song makes me feel nostalgic about the days when i was still living with God. but after i desolated myself to Him, my life becomes miserable. guilt is in me. sins obscured my hope. i am feeling hopeless now about getting my life back again with God. sometimes i feel weird; i kinda feel numb as if i dont have my conscience. thank goodness, this song gave me hope. it makes me emotional. it makes me feel i am human. still.
