Hudson explained the meaning of the song on her site in 2001.
- "I believe that some teens have their loneliest moments during this time of their lives. I think they are going through the trials of growing up and all that comes with it, whether it be issues with parents or thinking they are the only ones going through what they are going through. They don't realize that they have a Best Friend that has never let them down--someone that is on their side. He understands it all."
Did it seem to disappoint you
By the banks of your dilemma
Out of control
No one seems to give the answers that you wanna hear
What you'd give to find a welcome here
Miles and miles of lies behind you
Those were the days
So many lives you'd hope would guide you
Help you find a way
Now it seems to your surprise that they left you lying here
What you'd give to dry these bitter tears
Did it come naturally?
You a million miles from home
When you tried so carefully
To live a life that's not your own
Always remember that it wasn't that long ago
I stilled the oceans
I moved the mountains
To say I love you
Heaven waits, the hours of silence
Finds you on your knees
Broken in a sweet surrender
All the years of searching for a love you didn't know
Now you've finally found a welcome home
I love you, I have and I always will.
