I understand why people go to church because this song makes me feel like I am there.
"No matter who we are and where we come from, there are some things that everyone can relate to. Everyone can relate to what love feels like. Everyone can relate to what pain feels like. There are certain things that everyone will experience, like death and sickness. Those are things that are common to humankind, and “Ultralight Beam” is the kind of song that would be common to humankind. It doesn’t mater who you are, there is always that light. And there’s a way to get that across.
Everybody might not want to say God, everybody might not want to say Jesus. People have different things that they believe. But there are lot of people who know that there’s something greater than any human force or person in this world and they look to it for inspiration." - Kelly Price on Ultra Light Beam
