What would it take, for things to be quiet?
Quiet like the snow?

Cause I know this isn't much,
But I know I could, I could be better.

I don't think I deserve it,
Selflessness,
Find your way into my heart

All stars could be brighter,
All hearts could be warmer

What would it take for things to be quiet,
Quiet like the snow?

Are we meant to be empty handed?
I know I could, I could be better

I don't think I deserve it,
Selflessness,
Find your way into my heart
All stars could be brighter, all hearts could be warmer

What would it take for things to be quiet?
Find your way into my heart
What would it take for things to be quiet?
Find your way
What would it take for things to be quiet?

    You need to stop looking at how they're performing and look deeply into the lyrics. The Devil Wears Prada are Christian. This isn't just blind "madness". Wouldn't you think TDWP would have said something if they weren't? Stop judging the outside of the songs and take a look more deeply.

    "What would it take for things to be quiet? Quiet like the snow." How much would it take for people to see how they live and to stop. To stop and think, "Is this what God has in mind for his plan?"

    "Cause I know this isn't much, but I know I could, I could be better." How we live is really much, but we can all live a lifestyle thats more pleasing to God.

    "I don't think I deserve this. Selflessness, find your way into my heart." Christ sent his one and only son to die for our sins. We don't deserve that at all, but God loves us, and he did anyways. We all need to be more compassionate and less selfish, and give more to God.

    "All stars could be brighter. All hearts should be warmer." All of our hearts and minds should be more optimistic and more on Christ, and less pessimistic and less on ourselves.

    "Are we meant to be empty-handed?" We try to be successful in live-get the big house, the fancy car, and all the nicest and newest things. But we idolize these things, and that is going against the First Commandment. We all need to put everything we have before his feet, for he has given us amazing grace.

    And lilElfLing, if you arent christain, why are looking up these lyrics?

    I'm sorry but I'm Christian too and I completely disagree with you unlike the bands you've stated TDWP is legit Christian and so are there songs except one which was a cover of the song still fly. So please do not go labeling this band madness for you calling them madness is like saying hillsong or David crowder songs are madness. Even if they are screamo or "hardcore" they still preach the gospel... Isn't tht why we are here anyway? ;)

    I Like the description posted by worrrd and basically that because our lack of selflessness, Jesus Christ died for us and we were saved by his act of selflessness. What would it take for things to be quiet? If we call come to him and lay everything down before him for the tremendous love he showed to the world.

    Hes just saying that we all do not deserve the selflessness Jesus is showing us, and he is recognizing that only God can bring peace into our troubled lives by coming into our hearts..
