Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Scott Stapp giving voice to the steadying and sacred force that keeps him afloat after years of self-destructive behavior. "It's that still small voice inside that I call God," he said. "My heart tells me that God is always there. 'Even when you feel your breath fading from your lung,' God is reaching out to accept you in ways that renew your spirit and energize your soul."
