I Thirst For You Lyrics
I was the boy with the high-water pants,
Too shy to go to the dance,
Till I learned that I could sing and play guitar.
And I finally felt like someone,
Though my questions still remained.
But I've come to find my answers,
In the echo of your name.
And Lord I thirst for you,
Like a man in the desert needs water to drink.
And I cling to you, like a drowning sailor,
Trying not to sink.
And I want to trust in your hand of love,
More than what I feel or think.
I really do - I thirst for you.
Oh, she stole my heart away.
We got married on a winter's day.
And we learned that love is harder than it seems.
But through all the times we've laughed or cried,
Or let each other down,
Jesus is the heartbeat,
Of the true love we have found.
And when our baby girl arrived,
Ooh, the air seemed electrified.
And I've understood what being happy means.
And I've always prayed from that first day,
That she will understand,
That the gift of life is not complete,
Until she takes your hand.
