Fall Apart

Why in the world did I think I could
Only get to know you when my life was good
When everything just falls in place
The easiest thing is to give You praise

Now it all seems upside down

'Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when I fall apart

Blessed are the ones who understand
We've got nothing to bring but empty hands
Nothing to hide and nothing to prove
Our heartbreak brings us back to You

And it all seems upside down

'Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when I fall apart

I don't know how long this will last
I'm praying for the pain to pass
But maybe this is the best thing that
Has ever happened to me

My whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when
You will find me when I fall apart

Song facts

""Fall Apart" came out of a discussion with a good buddy of mine who was going through a divorce last year. He didn't want it to happen, was doing all he could do to make it not happen, but he felt helpless, out of control. Right in the middle of it, we had this really amazing conversation, and he said that even though everything was falling apart, he felt God's presence more than he ever had. He saw how much he needed God. When things are going well, we don't see how much we need him. We're not aware. We think we're doing great on our own. Hard times are a magnifying glass on how much we need him. That's when we feel God's presence the most. Remember... He's close to the brokenhearted, so I guess it shouldn't really come as a surprise." - Josh Wilson
