Put Back The Stars

Album: The Great Depression (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • In an interview with Musicomh.com, lead singer Christian Lindskog said: "For me, the meaning behind [the lyric] 'Ain't it something to know you're lost' is basically how I felt after I went home from South Africa and saw how things are in Sweden. I just felt lost and appreciated what that really feels like. I was looking, questioning, and searching for God in all of it, not being totally depressed about it, but searching. I felt like I was on a big black sea but there was still that hope, like 'I wonder what's gonna be around the corner.' I felt like I was waiting for God to be ready to speak to me, but in reality it was probably me not being ready to listen!" >>
