Dark Is The Way, Lights is a Place
by Anberlin



 

Do you expect me?
To be or believe you?
Do you accept me?
When itís me you can see through?

Are you keeping safe distance?
Are you arms length away?
Are you keeping safe distance?
Holding me arms length away?
Are you there, can someone answer me?

Closer.

Do you expect me?
To keep from crawling back.
Do you accept me?
When we both know my past.

Am I keeping safe distance?
Pushing you arms length away?
Am I keeping safe distance?
Oh, itís you that feels betrayed.
Are you there, can someone answer me?
Come where I can see.

Closer.
I know youíre out there somewhere.
Come where I can see.
Closer to me.

Come closer.

Closer, closer, closer.
Are you out there somewhere?
Come where I can see.
Closer, closer, closer to me.




Behind the Song:
"I know this is how a lot of us have felt about God, as if He is some cosmic being just staring at us, waiting for us to fail so he can beat us with a Thor-like hammer. Instead it ends up that it is us that walk away, it's always us.

Our past mistakes cause a great rift, which is easily remedied if only we ask. But we know ourselves and wonder how anyone, including God, could ever love us for who we were. It just takes a asking friends, family, or even God to come closer, and they will." - Stephen Christian
