Song Description

Be Still My Heart is a song about becoming the person you need to be and returning home literally and figurativelly. A song about learning from one's mistakes and changing for the better.

Story Behind the Song

John Stringer penned these lyrics and wrote the music with State of Man regarding real life mistakes he'd made in his own relationship and being on the road away from home. Its an apology, a commitment and a song of hope all in one.


-Verse 1-
I want you to know
I have fallen on my own
I have failed to be all the things you need

I want you to see
I?ll get back eventually
There?s just someone I?ve forgotten to be

-Chorus (2x)-
Be still my heart
I want you to know
I?m coming home again
One of these days

-Verse 2-
I want you to know
I admit that I was wrong
I could never hide the truth from you

I want you to see
There?s a change inside of me
Not just words or intentions but what I do

-Chorus (2x)-

What I?m trying to say
Is that I?m sorry, I?m sorry
For all of my ways

No I?m not a perfect man
But I?m learning
I?m learning to change
I?m learning from my mistakes
That is why I say

-Chorus (2x)-

-Coda (2x)-
Be still my heart
Home again
One of these days
