Crave Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

No magistrate can legislate
Peace and love and hope
No song can end or sermon mend
The fatal flaws in our souls
Pen and paper, Whitehouse won
Will never do what we need done
Can't give me
What I crave-
Can't give me
What I crave-
The end of tears and fears and war
Is what I'm craving in my core
Can't give me
What I crave
What I crave

No millions spent can pay the rent
And get us into kingdom come
No atom bomb could right the wrong
Inside the veins of everyone
All the glitter, tanks and guns
Will never do what we need done

Nothing here beneath the sun
Can make us holy make us one
Only Spirit, second birth
Can satisfy my constant thirst
To spill out heaven here on earth

Story Behind The Song:
MATTHEW 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they will be filled."

Surrender transforms our human hearts from stone to flesh and makes them slaves to the Spirit of God who moves us to obey His commands (Ezekiel 36:26-27). Now the surrendered person is propelled by a new desire for right living and right thinking that beats alongside an old desire for happiness and self-fulfillment. Jesus says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness."

Blessed are those who feel weighted down and discontent by the expected ambitions of this world. Blessed are those who realize working like a hummingbird brings no end to the hunger pangs and only tethers them to a mundane and self-absorbed existence. Blessed are those who shake a fist in the face of advertisers, educators, politicians, religious fanatics, lovers and tempters of all shapes and sizes and shout, "You can't give me what I crave! Nothing here beneath the sun can make us holy or make us one. Only Spirit and second birth can satisfy my constant thirst and pour out Heaven here on earth. You can't give me what I crave!"
