Song Description

This song is about looking past the One who's always there to find something better, but it's not there. Material items may satisfy us shortly, but nothing comes close to the love of God.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song to try to express the idea that God is the only thing that can satisfy us.

Lyrics

Verse
Happiness isn't far away
People look past in search of better things
Unexpected joy is found
Away from the materialistic realm

Pre-Chorus
I went too far, gotta go back to the start
I went too far, gotta look into my heart

Chorus
Why did I try looking around
Digging deep when I know there was nothing to be found
All this time the answer was right in front of me

Verse
I could have money
Oh, but I'd just use it to get more
And I could be funny
But everyone's heard my jokes before

Chorus 2
Go as deep as you want but it never ends
Looking for treasure but finding crushed aluminum cans
All this time the answer was right in front of me

Bridge
It's right in front of me
It's right in front of me
He's right beside me
He's always with me
