Standing alone with my heart in your hands
Longing to just breathe you in
You traded our love for a life of desert lands
Giving yourself away again

But I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You hold my heart, you have my love
You are my bride

Without a goodbye a passion of lies
Steals you away
The thirst of desire is drawing you in
But the memories of white, the garden
Of life is taken away
But I'm fighting to hold you again

So I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You hold my heart, you have my love
You are my bride

Nothing can shatter the promise I
Made to you
Our love will make you whole
I will be faithful, dying to be with you
I will not let you go

But I will give my life to win your heart
And I will tear apart my soul
I'll give away all I know to bring you home
For all that is true, for all of the way
With all of my life
You are my love, you are my church
You are my bride

    The song seems to be about a man who's so in love with the woman that he's willing to do everything for her. If any of you have seen supernatural, you'll know that ripping your soul apart is painful and irreversable. This line alone speaks volumes of his love for her. He then talks about how the lies of the world have taken her aways from him, but their love and their need to be together brings her back every time. He's fights against everything, every lie, every loss, just to hold her again. This promise, he says, is unbreakable and their love will put her back together again. He will never cheat on her, never betray her love for him.
    The song seems perfect for a wedding. It's more of a wedding vow than anything, and personally, I'd love to have this song sung to me.
