I found myself one day
In a coversation with God
We talked about small things
Like sports, style, health, and the weather
He asked about my friends
And what kind of things we'd been doing
And then he asked about my life
And what kinds of seeds I was sewing
And I confessed I wasn't sure
And he said "Maybe you should be sure"

"But all I really want from you
Is a warm embrace
A moment or two
Set aside to spend some time together
Think of me as though I'm always with you
In that place
My child
All I need is your love"

He said
"Son I'm very proud of you
You've done most of what I've asked you to"
And I fell to my knees
And said
"Daddy listen to me please
I don't deserve it
I'm vain and unworthy
I lie and I cheat
And I tend to be proud
I'm bitter and corrupt
And at times I doubt
That you're even there
At times
I doubt you're even there

And all I want to see
Is your face
Just for a moment
To let me know one day we'll be together
You know how hard it can be
Living down here in this place
All I need is your love
All I need is your love"

And then he kissed me on the cheek
And he, he gave my hand a squeeze and said
"Forget about the lies
Forget about the cheating
Forget about unworthy
Forget about deserving
Forget about corrupt
Forget about the pride and the doubt
I knew that it would happen
And I forgive it all the same
I know that you aren't perfect
But you're still my child
Yes you're still my child

My child
All I need is your love
My child
All I need is your love
