I know I need You
I need to love You
I’d love to see You but it’s been so long

I long to feel You
I feel this need for You
I need to hear You
Is that so wrong?

Now You pull me near You
When we’re close I fear You
Still I’m afraid to tell you all that I’ve done

Are You done forgiving?
Can You look past my pretending?
I’m so tired of defending what I’ve become
What have I become?

But I hear You say
My love is over
It’s underneath
It’s inside
It’s in between

The times that you doubt me
And when you can’t feel
The times that you question
Is this for real?

The times that you’re broken
The times that you mend
The times you hate me
The times that you bend

My love is over
It’s underneath
It’s inside
It’s in between

The times that you’re healing
And when your heart breaks
The times that you feel like you’ve fallen from grace

The times that you’re hurting
The times that you heal
The times you go hungry and are tempted to steal

In times of confusion
In chaos and pain
I’m there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame

I’m there through your heart-ache
I’m there in the storm
My love I will keep you by my power alone

I don’t care where you’ve fallen or where you have been
I’ll never forsake you
My love never ends
It never ends

  1. I really like it too. The first time I listened to it, the lines, ” My love is over, it’s underneath, it’s inside, it’s in between” reminded me of St. Patrick’s Breastplate.

  2. Yes.

    By the way, I like your handwritten “Consecrated to Mary” over there in the bottom left. I really like that –it’s so personal, so you.

  3. Thank you, Gypsy. I was forced into it. Couldn’t get the wordpress image-captions for sidebar pictures to work! Shall I do a rendering of yourself? 🙂 Oh, and remember I told you how I couldn’t believe this template didn’t have a “home” button? I made one myself and put it in the top, left corner. We’re getting pretty good at this stuff, eh? So, about your portrait – full on, or profile?
