(Sorry this is hard to listen to with the poor recording/instrument quality. I had no equipment other than a camera and a laptop. But I liked the song when I wrote it, so I thought I’d share it somehow regardless. I had no mic for the singing, so the words are hard to understand. Lyrics below.)
This song is about the reason we’re made the way we’re made – so that we could have a little better understanding of the One who made us.
I get caught up in the wanting most every day,
Wanting someone to take the ache away.
Wanting someone to look at me that way.
But no man could give me what I really need.
Someone to see the flower inside the seed.
Someone tender with such a shaken and bruised reed.
(Chorus:) Still there’s this hunger that drives us all on and on.
Does it have to be so strong?
Could it be because we have all strayed and gone,
And this hunger in part,
Helps to show us Your heart,
And the way that we long,
That’s how You long.
You know how it feels to feel all alone,
No dozen roses for me as a means of love shown
Except the One who made them all,
Wants me for His own.
How could someone know You without loving You?
When You know me through and through,
Yet You love me through and through.
Known and loved from the inside point of view.
The most romantic thing that a man could ever do,
Would be to take the bullet for the one who
Who he loves like no other, who he loves true.
But isn’t that just what You did for Your bride
So one day in white she could stand by Your side,
And You’ve made her clean with nothing to hide.
