MessageEdit

When interviewed by MusicChristian.com Tobymac had the following to say about the meaning of the song; "City on our Knees' is really about a moment. A moment that we all come together to a place where there’s no judgment, but really love. And we choose to recognize one God together. And it’s really a reminder that that moment could be right now, tonight. And in that moment judgment falls by the wayside, we choose to step across the line, whatever side we’re on. Love fills in the cracks and makes up the difference."

Lyrics[1]Edit

Lyrics


If you gotta’ start somewhere why not here?
If you gotta’ start sometime why not now?
If we gotta’ start somewhere I say here
If we gotta’ start sometime I say now

Through the fog
There is hope in the distance
From cathedrals to third world missions
Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

Tonight’s the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide in a beautiful (glorious) display
(‘Cause) it’s all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one King
A city on our knees
A city on our knees

Tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
Tonight could last forever

Tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
Family, we’re family

Oh, tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
You and me, yeah you and me

If we gotta’ start somewhere why not here?
If we gotta’ start sometime why not now?
