10. On Your Knees

Born Again
by Newsboys



 

Lately she's been thinking what her daddy said
How when you're winning, you got more friends
But are they your friends if you fall they're gone
Something about those kind of people seems wrong
Who's gonna be there when the phone call knocks her down?
All of the steeples but she can't hear a bell sound
Jumps on a bus to head downtown
And picks up a paper that's been blowing around
It says...

When your heart breaks
He'll hurt for you
Dreams are out of reach
He'll pull you through
When you lose hope
All you gotta do
Is get on your knees again
Not long now and you're gonna see
No mountain's too high for you or for me
Or fall too far if you can believe
Get on your knees
On your knees again

She pulls up her paper and puts in her bag
Knows she really needs a savior like that
Walking past her church just up the street
Says 'maybe it's time to get on my knees'
Cause He was there when no one was around
All of the people but no one made a sound
Thinks of her brother who's been feeling down
Pulls out her paper and reads it aloud...

When your heart breaks
He'll hurt for you
Dreams are out of reach
He'll pull you through
When you lose hope
All you gotta do
Is get on your knees again
Not long now and you're gonna see
No mountain's too high for you or for me
Or fall too far if you can believe
Get on your knees
On your knees again

Giving everything you've got
Still it's hard to believe
Love comes from the inside out
If you wanna be free
Gotta give your life and never stop
When you're thinking about giving up
Get on your knees

When your heart breaks
He'll hurt for you
Dreams are out of reach
He'll pull you through
When you lose hope
All you gotta do
Is get on your knees again
Not long now and you're gonna see
No mountain's too high for you or for me
Or fall too far if you can believe
Get on your knees
On your knees again

When you've given everything you've got
Gotta give your life and never stop
If you wanna be free
On your knees again


Written by Juan Otero

Behind the Song:
(From JFH Interview)... JFH (John): Is 'On Your Knees' inspired by a true story?

Michael Tait: Juan Otero penned the lyric to 'On Your Knees' and it is, for the most part, he tells me. But the chorus is more relatable. Like a minister standing behind a pulpit can't walk unless he's on his knees. He walks on his knees. In other words, in a prayerful, praying-without-ceasing kind of way, but when you've gone through so much of this, that, and the other, you realize you're not going to find hope, peace, happiness at all in a person or a thing or money. It's an age-old story. But more importantly, I love that the bridge part -- We didn't have a bridge for a long time and one night I was laying in bed and I thought about how I felt at the end of my little journey - I was in L.A. for awhile, I got caught up in some crazy stuff, I kind of lost myself in the business of the materialistic world and I kind of lost my perspective. So I wrote the bridge to say, when you've given it everything you got and it's hard to believe, I thought, 'Wow, I've been a Christian all my life. I've done all the right things... What's going on, God?' And I thought, 'Tait, you know it here (*points to his head*), but you know don't know it here (*points to his heart*).'
