All the lights,
Were too bright to see the spark
That I've been missing for too long.
Something I've been missing for too long.

My empty cup,
Could never fill another.
I have spilled all I've had,
To make things better.
But the love of all others,
Has made me new.

My empty cup,
Could never (because of you) fill another.
(I am made new) I have spilled all I've had,
(Because of you) to make things better. (I am made new)

We've all been broken
So let us make each other new. (x2)

I've died inside every time I tried
To lie to myself about feeling alive, alive. (x2)
(I've died)

All the lights,
Were too bright to see the spark
That I've been missing for too long.
Something I've been missing for too long.

All these distractions,
Kept me from seeing what I needed all along,
An understanding.

I am speechless tonight
As I stare into the sky.
I feel endless compassion, forgiveness, and love,
I feel everyone who is looking up sharing this,
I feel unexplainably alive.

I need to understand what we've grown to be.

Tonight, when I look into the sky
I know this is why I am alive.
Tonight, when I look into the sky
I know this is why I am alive.
So sing with me if you feel this feeling. (x2)

I'm alive.

    I love we came as romans so much. They have kept me alive and they inspire me so much. They're songs have taught me lessons and have reached me and taught me that i shouldn't give up. They're so beautiful all of them. I want to cry with happiness when i hear the chorus "tonight when i look into the sky, i know this why i am alive" it's so beautiful i just feel at peace, and i feel happiness and feel like everything is going to be okay. Whenever i have sad moments and am in a bad mood wcar always wipes the sad thoughts away. Anyways all of the posts on here are great they all have good reasons and understandings for this song. Personally i think the song has different meanings. I think what the song is about going down a dark path saying that your missing the good in life but when you discovered love from others you feel like a much better person. Then "we've all been broken" this is talking about how everyone has gone through bad things but its not too late to patch things together become who you want to be. The most beautiful lyrics to this song to me is "i am speechless tonight, as i stare into the sky, i feel endless compassion, etc. And the chorus. This is so beautiful and amazing i understand now. I thank we came as romans for reaching me through their music.

    I think it means that you've finally let go of every pain and every problem that you've had, things that you didn't need to worry about. You've finally realized that there really are so many people around you who care. You've opened your eyes and realized that the things that have been holding you down have no reason to worry you, and you let go of those problems without regret.

    I think this song means after everything that we go threw their is always someone that is there for you to make you get back on your feet, to "fill your cup". And knowing that that person or those people are there keeps you from giving up. They are there to keep you alive. Just knowing they are there does keep you alive.
