It's like I never lived
Before my life with you
So much was missing here
I never even knew
I still picture the place we were
When I fell into your world

[Chorus:]
My heart is in you
Where you go you carry me
I bleed
If you bleed
Your heart beats
Inside of me
You're keeping me alive

I don't know why feel this way
But something's right
You're like the morning air
Before the light arrives
No more lonely and
No more night
No more secrets to hide

[Chorus]

I'll hold you near
Together, we'll never die
Your love is keeping me alive

[Chorus]

    God, you made us with a need in our heart for your sweet love, without your love we aren't complete and are ever seeking and never finding...

    bekah is right =] These lyrics are far deeper than one would think at first listen and without the amazing encounter that surpasses all understand with God. That through Jesus and the grace of God, we are made and kept alive! Aw it's the most wonderful time ever, once you've encountered God you can never be the same =D

    OKAY I JUST POSTED A COMMENT ON MY OTHER ACCOUNT BUT THERES MORE TO IT THEN THAT. SO THIS IS THE BETTER ONE;

    I had, had a boyfriend of basically a year and he was everything i could ask for. He was so nice to me and he always made me smile and he kept me happy. We loved eachother sooo much! He was like my other half =) Well over spring break he went to Georgia to visit his family and friends. When he came back i was sooo happy to see him, but i had to break the news to him that over spring break i was diagnosed with an irregualr heart-beat. I really didn't think anything of it like it was that bad so i would kind of brush the news aside with him whenever i would go to the doctors. After about 4 months after this he and i had broken up. But also following that i found out that i had a hole in my heart and if i didnt get surgery i would eventually die. One of the things that would keep me healthy was to have a healty spirit and healthy emoitions. Even though we werent a couple anymore, he still was always here for me. Always proceeding to make me happy and of course i still love him and i knew that he still cared so much for me. I really owe everything to him, if it wasnt for him i really wouldnt be here right now. His love was literally keeping me alive and i love him for that sooo much!

    this song means so much to me! a little while ago my boyfriend was visiting family in Georgia. When he came back i had to tell him the news that i found out i had an irregular heart beat. As the days/weeks progressed it started to get worse, come to find out i had a hole in my heart and the only way to keep me healthy until surgery was to have good feelings. He always made me so happy! No matter what we were doing he was always there for me to cheer me up and keep me in a positive state. But, about 4 months after that we broke up. We still talk to this day just as if we were a couple. But i do have my whole entire life to owe to him and i still love him so much. He literally is keeping me alive, i owe everything to him!

    this song is about God...he says now that "my heart is in you where you go you carry me" Thats referring to where God says in Jeremiah how He knows the plans he has for us...and its so true how he says "it's like i never lived..." this is explaining how dead we are before we come into the light of God and accept Jesus as our Savior.
