I heard the sound of your first breath / A brand new life on your motherís chest / A beating heart, expectant eyes / On the first day of your life // I saw you take your first step / And I watched you run with no regret / To chase your dreams and find true love / And the best is yet to come // So come with me, Iíll show you life even better than this // Come with me, Iíll show you love you didnít know could exist
Better than your first crush / Better than your first kiss / Oh, Iíll show you how to live // Remember how you felt from across the room / When you realized someone had eyes for you / And the way your heart sang Ďcause you believed / You were worth something // ĎCause I created the heart that makes you feel / I am the love that makes it real / Oh, I am the one, Iím the one, Iím the one / I am the one, Iím the one, Iím the one // ĎCause I am the one, Iím the one, Iím the one / I am the one, Iím the one, Iím the one

Behind the Song:
This song was written shortly after members of the band became brand new fathers. The wonderment of watching newborn children as their eyes open wide to wander about a room, or stare inquisitively at a tree or cat, how they get lost in the depth of the sky, or recognize their parents and cling accordingly, itís exhilarating and miraculous.
We imagined the perspective of our eternal Father watching us, his children, as we feel our way through life this way. Every season is a brand new experience filled with curiosity and ambition. All the good facets of humanity that he designed; the excitement of chasing a dream, the nervous euphoria of a crush, a first kiss. God created these interactions for us to know delight and joy. All the while heís saying, ďI made this to be good, but youíve got to come with me. You havenít seen anything yet.Ē - Sanctus Real
