Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord I just don't care”
But you've got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then I feel like life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord I just don't care”
But you've got the love I need to see me through

Time after time I say, “oh Lord, what’s the use”
Time after time I say, “this just won't do,” but
Sooner or later in life the things you love you loose
Just like before I know I'll call on you

Occasionally my thoughts are brave and friends are few
Occasionally I cry out, “Lord what must I do”
Occasionally I call up, “Master make me new”
You've got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord I just don't care”
But you've got the love I need to see me through

You’ve got the love, got the love, got the love (repeat until end)

    General Commenti love this song so much. it makes me so happy and it also make me cry.

    i think this song is about a woman who use to think that her life meant nothing and she wanted to give up. she loses he faith in everything but there is just one man who has the she needs to see her through.

    it is such a good song. not good but brilliant.

    General CommentThis song is quite obviously about God. And I have to admit, it's songs like these that make me wish I was a believer...

    Song MeaningI grew up listening to this in the early years of house in clubs on drugs with my "hands in the air" I thought at the time it was about the love of friends,or between a man and a woman. Now that I am older and have some more faith and wisdom I know it is a gospel song about when all these things let you down you still have the unconditional love of God to see you through , eternally ;-)

    General Commentthis song aka the final song ever played in the best show ever Sex and the City. This song always puts a smile on my face because it fit the end of the show so perfectly and just reminds me of hope...

    General CommentYeah, I love when it's played in clubs, as it's blantantly about God. Fantastic tune, love it! I first fell in love with it through Sex and the City - THE best show going.
