Blurs god, leaves f**k. Good job, Pandora lyrics.
Lol when did “God" become a cuss word?
This song is really great. The movie it was featured in, not so much..
Some think the name of G-d is too divine to put into words
Why does it blur out God
I can't hear this song enough...

Are the lyrics tell my mother not to worry referencing Upward over the Mountain?
I would love it if he meant that on purpose.
I want this sung at my funeral... Please remember me, happily, fondly, etc...
Best song by sam... And it has a marching band reference!!! ! :D instant dose of happy!
Wow. Just wow.
Love this song. Such amazing musical style , it has no chorus and breaks all the rules of modern music. Love the picture it paints of crumbling romance and drug abuse. So sad.
This is just.....ama z i n g . it makes me happy and its just amazing. Its so beautiful i want to cry. If i want to cry, this will be what im gonna listen to.
Um the sparse original is much better. This is overproduced . Still beautiful, of course.

Peaceful soul

These lyrics make so much sense to me, I can really relate and feel them. Once you paint the picture he paints with his lyrics you see what he's saying and then it hits you...what an amazing song writer.
i want to kiss someone to this.

so mellow
I want to thank the person responsible for putting the music together for the movie "In Good Company" which is what introduced me to Sam Beam in the first place. It wasn't a bad movie - but the soundtrack was brilliant.
wow

This song always makes me really sad. It's so wistful and nostalgic.

The first time I heard this song (um, five minutes ago) I was hooked.
The quality that Sam puts into his songs in unmatched today.

the lyrics expose the writer's soul
This song is awesomeness. I could listen to it 2 times in a row.

Did someone else cover this song, or at least part of it? The first three stanzas sounded really familiar.
Tell me this is not the greatest song ever created. That is, of course, if you enjoy being wrong.

Just heard it for the first time... I'm speechless.
How does an earthling like Ben make such divine music?
Beautiful.
if i had to chose one song to listen to for the rest of my life, this would be it.
Wow. I mean, this is some heavy stuff. Sam Beam does it again.
This song is so simple yet beautiful at the same time. Every time I listen to it I find myself in awe of Sam Beam's ability to write such captivating, touching, and peaceful music.
I agree...from the minute I heard this song, I was in love...it has been almost two years now, and it still has the ability to give me chills.
"The song" completely unknown to any person who has never listened to it, and one must "listen" to it!
most amazing song ever created. It triggers so many memories in my life. thank you Mr. Beam for creating such a touching song
