Everything by Lifehouse

Album: No Name FaceReleased: 2000
  • Lead singer Jason Wade: "That's a super-special song for me. It seems to really connect with other people, too. It's one of those songs that every time I played it, a new part came to it. That's why it's so long and kind of mysterious. It's a bunch of different bits and pieces, but it has power because it kind of sums up everything I'm about lyrically and in terms of my relationships and Lifehouse overall. So I think it's a perfect way to end the record." (thanks, Patti - Mahopac, NY)
  • This song is played in several episodes of Smallville, one of which entitled "Pilot," when Lana Lang goes into her house and Clark Kent is spying on her through his telescope. The other, titled "Tempest," is where Whitney Fordman and Lana Lang dance in the gym for the last time before Whitney joins the Marines. (thanks, Dawson - Draper, UT)
  • There is a skit that goes with this song that has become popular at churches across the US. It involves a girl that starts out loving God, but gradually becomes involved other things that steadily become more harmful, culminating in the girl nearly committing suicide. At the last second, she throws the gun away and runs back to Jesus. (thanks, Jeff - Versailles, IL)
  • Jason Wade: "A lot of people think this is our best song because how it kind of grows and there's the big climax at the end. We've been seeing people proposing to their girlfriends. You look out in the crowd and you know what's happening when everyone's face is turned towards the wall, and you have to spot where the guy is proposing. That's one of those songs where if we didn't play live we'd probably get shot by one of our super-fans! (thanks, Emily - Jtown, PA)

To those who don't know whether it is a love song for a person, or for God, take your cue from Les Miserables: "to love another person is to see the face of God". This song is the truest, most honest, giving, and humble expression of love a person can give with words. It devotes itself to the object (person, or God) that means the most to you. Why can't it be both?Tacey - New Milford, Nj

I have a hard time with this song as corporate worship since the lyrics are such a personal confession. I see this as perhaps alter-time or reflective worship. or private worship at home etc. but I have a hard time with it as corporate sunday morning worship. its definitely, brings Christian themes and i think the line "how could i not be moved by you" is not a statement of not being moved, but a statement of there being no way he could resist being moved.

its a great song. it could be a love song but i think we have too many love songs their should be more songs that are different so this song would be better as a christian song than i love. I want to play this at my sisters wedding and at church!April - Mount Sterling, Oh
First of all, Lifehouse IS a Christian band, that doesn't meant that every song is a God Praising Hymn, Second, this IS a Christian song about Jason Wade's relationship with Jesus Christ, that is what HE wrote it about, however music can be interpreted however you like, that's what defines the songs that we love, what they mean in our eyesWes - Chicago, Il
I love this song. It was me and my husbands wedding song.Andrea - Franklin, In
If it had more publicity I believe this song would've totally beat Hanging by a Moment.

And Lifehouse WAS a christian band before they became Lifehouse.

This song is probably about God, but the main lyrics 'How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?" Somewhat makes me think differently. I just can't see how those lyrics make sense when talking about God.

Okay just to clear things up for you guys, Lifehouse is not a Christian band, but they are all Christian. Just like The Fray(and a million other bands!) this song is about God, not his girlfriend. If you would look at the lyrics:

"You are the light
That is leading me
To the place where
I find peace again"

"You are the strength
That keeps me walking
You are the hope
That keeps me trusting
You are the life to my soul
You are my purpose
You are everything"(his strength, he finds from God)

"You calm the storms"(how would his girlfriend calm the storms?)

So you can see they are about God.

I disagree with andres anleu; this song is about God.Zac - Rio Rancho, Nm
I think this song can be about both... Love with another person or God. I personally believe it is about love for another person, because typicall speaking, loving only someone else can 'take your breath away' or be 'all i want' and 'all i need.'
But it could be interpreted as someone declaring their love for God...

Amazing song...is it covered by another christian artist?Holly - Danville, Va
This song is definitely about God. It's absolutely one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs I've yet heard from a secular group.Mokkan - Grove City, Oh
This is their best song.Roger - Los Angeles, Ca
I think this is one of the best Lifehouse songs. I feel kind of bad that some people have never heard it because it would be a great song to put on the radio. I don't think it would make it as far as "Hanging By A Moment" though.Hope - Florence, Mt
It is. Lifehouse originated as a Christian band.Hilary - Grayson, La
This song is not written about God, or at least i don't think it is.Andres Anleu - Guatemala, Other
We sing it at church with a full band and it's SO powerful. It's my favorite worship song.Trish - Houston, Tx
wuld u tell me how culd it b any better dan this? aaaaaaaaa!! i love itAriana - Lima, Peru
This song is one of my favorite songs ever. This song gets me so emotional, I want to cry. I'm listening to it right now. It reminds me of Smallville.Dawson - Draper, Ut
I really love this song. I think it's written about God, I'm not sure. That's certainly what I think about when I hear it/sing it. It's one of the deepest songs I've ever heard - it will continue to make me appreciate God.Laura - Smithton
very very good songTaufuboy - Burke, Va
One of the best Lifehouse songs ever. This was actually mine and my ex-girlfriend's song back when we were together. It's very hard to listen to at times. It is indeed very mysterious, yet straightforward. Amazing lyrics, amazing rythms. Awesomely arranged.Dustin - Jones County, Ga
Very, very good song.Leon - Waterbury, Ct
this song is a very powerful one. its written in a very unique manner... both lyrically and rhymically.Terri Lynn - Heart's Desire, Canada
