Blind Lyrics

I was young but I wasn't naive
I watched helpless as he turned around to leave
And still I have the pain I have to carry
A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here

    The song Blind is a song Jason Wade wrote about what his father did when jason was a child. If you've ever seen the video it's about a faher who sleeps with countless women everyday. And has no care for his child's feelings and what not. Adn was never around. And that's exactly what happened to Jason as a child. Jason gave this information in a interview.

    I think this song is about a guy who loves a girl more than anyone else but due to circumstance (girl had a boyfriend, leaving for college/military, etc.) he never told her how much he loved her because it wouldn't "be right."

    I believe that he "couldn't make her see it" - not because SHE blind to his love, but because HE choose not to SHOW HER the love he had for her - and now HE regrets it.

    I think he is looking back on the choice he made and now he wishes he would have told her how he really felt, and still feels.

    Once a soul mate always a soul mate.

    I think blind is about how a teenager feels about thier parent. Like thier parent has an issue, whatever it may be (drugs, alcohol, divorce) and the kid just can't take it when they are around them now. Because it brings back so many memorys about how it felt before they had that problem. And the teenager is saying how they love thier parent but the problem he/she has is making thier love blind and un-readable. And they just keep saying how they never thought they would make it to that point, and how they just have to give up on that person.

    When I first heard this song,I remember someone who used to be part of me.This person has really inspired me to fight and move on.I should have told him from the start that I have feelings for him..I guess its too late to do that now.We have our own different path..Letting go of that person was probably the hardest thing to do..

    I miss him..

    Every time I hear this song,it always reminds me of the man I truly love.The agony that I felt when I never told him how I really care and love him.I think its too late to do that now.Hes gone...This song is for you...

    You are the most extraordinary guy I have ever been with..but I have to let you go though it really kills me inside..hope your happy now..

    My interpretation is that He loved her for her and it isn't that she wore black and all of that it is that he loves her for who she is and he couldn't get her to see that someone actually cared about her for who she was.

    If you followed the progression of Lifehouse, Jason's band, you can see the gradual omission of God. What started as a Christian band is now completely secular. I wonder if Jason lost his faith and the song Blind is about losing his relationship with his almightly Father. I went down this path myself, so I can personally relate to this struggle and heartache. In the end, though, is what makes great songs so beautiful. They can mean different things to different people.

    Because the singer is male and mentions on the second line of the lyrics about a "he" leaving the place; I think this song is about a gay boy dumped by his lover.

    I think this song is about a father that leaves his family, seen from the eyes of a child. Children love their parents unconditionally and can see past the faults, thereby making them "blind" to imperfections. Over time, this child let go of his father's image and his memories.

    Lifehouse is a Christian band. I think that in 'blind' it's actually pointing to the pain christians feel when a non-believer turns away from following Christ. "When my love for you was blind, and I couldn't make you see it, couldn't make you see it" speaks to the heartbreak we feel when we're trying to show someone God's grace and love and the love we have for that person because of God. It hurts. We don't understand why they can't see it, and we want them to come to know God, to know that peace and love that only He can bring. When we can't, it's...difficult. It is one of the hardest things to understand. Blind cuts to the core of that feeling.
