08. Hearts Safe (A Better Way)

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

I feel it in your eyes
There's pain that covers up these lies
Now you may look like me
But it seems you're really different on the inside
We used to keep our hearts safe
We kept them safe and locked away
But then we grew up learning
That life could serve us in a better way

And why?
I'm asking you why?

So what happened to your eyes
I saw them wander just like mine
So how did we come to see so differently
After all this time

And why?
I'm asking you why?

And why?
I'm asking you why?

If the sheep know his voice then tell me what is the choice
For the ones who haven't heard and have no need to rejoice
Father, help me understand
'Cause I am just like him and Lord he's just like me
We came from the same town and the same families
But now he, he just won't understand
Please Lord open up his eyes
Can You open up these eyes?

And why?
I'm asking you why?



Behind the Song:
“Jeff came to me and said ‘Man, I had this conversation with this friend of mine that I grew up with and he just doesn’t have any desire to follow God at all.’ He said ‘It’s weird, I don’t get it.’ I had a similar experience. A good friend who I thought loved the Lord just fell away. So Jeff had written that riff and we sat down and started writing. What’s fun about that song is that it’s a really heavy lyric put to this really happy music, which I think is the beauty of pop music. You can get away with that. A lot of people won’t ever get what we’re saying in that song, but that’s okay. It was very healing for me just to write that song.” (Mike Donehey) -- Tenth Avenue North
