Songfacts®:

  • This song deals with questioning your beliefs. It was written by Daniel Amos lead singer/guitarist Terry Taylor, who told us in 2012: "Whenever I attempt to pass on a bit of inspiration or challenge to others, it always begins with me. I need to remind myself of these things and in doing so I'm hoping it will be of value to my listeners. The song is about faith - not blind faith - but faith based on reason. This song is saying that your questions concerning God or faith or whatever can be answered to an extent, but sometimes, even if you don't have all the answers, you just need to let go and surrender."
