02. Above It All

Space In Between Us
by Building 429



 

Oh Iím waiting for the answer to the question in my soul
Lord why did you lead me here?
I take a look around and a desperate world surrounds me
I know Iím not of this place, but its here and in my face

All that I am wants to run
God I feel hopeless and undone

Lift me up above it all
Iím feeling broken and alone
Donít let me turn to stone
Lift my heart above it all
Iíve lost my hope tonight
And Iím praying for the strength to carry on
Lord lift me above it all

Now Iím waiting for a glimpse of hope in an eye
But a flash of sunlight shows a faded gray
Cause these streets are hard and cold
And the alleys burn like coal with a stench of helplessness
And all the life thatís been misspent

And all that I am wants to run
God I feel helpless and undone

Lift me up above it all
Iím feeling broken and alone
Donít let me turn to stone
Lift my heart above it all
Iíve lost my hope tonight
And Iím praying for the strength to carry on
Lord lift me above it all

[BRIDGE]
Maybe Iím not supposed to fly
Maybe you want me here tonight

To lift them up above it all
When theyíre broken and alone
Donít let me turn to stone
Lift them up above it all
Cause they cannot stand alone
And theyíre praying for the strength to carry on

Lift us up above it all
When weíre broken and alone
Donít let us turn to stone
Lift us up above it all
Because we cannot stand alone
And weíre praying for the strength to carry on
Lord will you lift us up above it all



Behind the Song:
"On a trip to NY with the band I began to notice the homeless in the subways and alleys and it struck me as an odd situation. Here they were completely without hope and I was too afraid to even look at them for fear that they might realize that I noticed them and kept walking. It really made me feel lonely and sad for their situation, but more for the situation in my heart. Now that I look back at it I think maybe God wanted me there to lift them up, and all the time I was asking Him to get me out of there. I pray now that I wonít live that situation the same way again, but that I will attempt at least to let them know that they are loved. Who knows what a single kind word could do?" - Building 429
