As much about personal growth as it is about the most powerful and enduring relationship in my life.

Lyrics

I knew I got here somehow
I wanted it to mean
Something different
Something clean

The truth is better somehow
And still, I tend to dream
But something's different
I feel clean

The road is worn
And ancient ties are torn
But I'm not torn anymore

Hearts are worn
And some are freshly torn
But mine's not torn anymore

And now I'm not afraid
Of losing anything
I am just amazed to be someone

And now I'm not afraid
Of missing anything
I am just amazed that there's someone
Who walks with me

I knew you got here somehow
I wanted it to mean
Something different
Something clean

The truth is better somehow
And still I tend to dream
But this is different
This is clean

The ancient ties are worn
And that old road is torn
But I'm not on that road anymore

Hearts are torn
And mine was lightly worn
But I don't wear it that way anymore

And now I'm not afraid
Of losing anything
I am just amazed to be someone

And now I'm not afraid
Of missing anything
I am just amazed that there's someone
Who walks with me

Wow , what a sound you have here ! The track just gets better and better as it goes on .

Beautiful guitar and playing vocs good and tight nice theme dynamic should place good

Love the voice, the story It's nice how you brought in there cello.......nice build

This seems to be (hope I got this right!) a very spiritual song. The way I take it, the writer found God and God is walking with him now. "I feel clean" speaks of cleansing and forgiveness, beautifully expressed in the vocals. The instrumentation is so beautiful, especially that bottom end (was it cello, bowed bass?)...loved it. Also the harmonies were spot on and really enhanced the song. Loved the guitar intro and the outro was well done, not rushed, very conclusive. Nice job!
