Gospel Lyrics >> Song Artist :: Shaun Groves 

Words and music by Shaun Groves

I just want a place to rest
Look out on a day's sunset
Someone there to share it with
A hand to hold when this world turns

Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
No matter what I chase and crave
I need you more
I need you more

I just want to live in peace
Pass without an enemy
With a smile laid on my face
Without a cause to bend my brow

Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
All this wanting only makes
Me need you more
I need you more

I just want to cling to grace
That has filled my empty place
And my heart with gratitude
For so much more than I deserve

Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
Teach my wayward heart each day
No matter what I chase or crave
That all this wanting only makes
Me need you more
I need you more

Story Behind The Song:
Playing at colleges and universities I meet a lot of single people - people who believe they are in great need. They tell me they need a major, a degree, a spouse, a job and money. They're just like me but a lot more honest. I've realized over time though that my "needs" are often left unmet or, once met they are replaced by new ones, to cultivate dependence upon God. In the end, after chasing want after want I end up, time after time, realizing what it is I was made to crave. (Psalm 73:25)
