    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 don't have my conscience. Thank goodness, this song gave me hope. It makes me emotional. It makes me feel I am human. Still.

    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.

    He is asking God to help bring him back to God. He has tried to be undivided ("tried to write") in his walk with God over and over again. He notes how God sings to him over and over again and yet he also asks God to show him again the plans that He has for him. He seems to have gotten apathetic or cold through letting a distance grow between him and God and now he realizes that God is his only hope.
