"I Need You" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
I've dug up miles and miles of sand
Searching for something I can't see
I've just got bruised and battered hands
And a brand new void inside of me

Complete with walls, I did create
From all the earth that I've displaced
A mess that I have made
From what I've just let pile and pile up

I have not been abandoned
No, I have not been deserted
And I have not been forgotten

I need you, I need you here
I need you now, I need security somehow
I need you like you would not believe
You're the only thing I want
'Cause you're everything, everything I need

Explore the cave that is my chest
A torch reveals there's nothing left
Your whispers echo off the wall
And you can hear my distant call

The voice of who I used to be
Screaming out, "Someone, someone please
Please shine a light into the black
Wade through the depths and bring me back"

I have not been abandoned
No, I have not been deserted
And I have not been forgotten

I need you, I need you here
I need you now, I need security somehow
I need you like you would not believe
You're the only thing I want
'Cause you're everything, everything I need
I need you, I need you now

When my hope seem to dangle
Somewhere just beyond my reach
You say you've heard my prayers
You've read my words there, on the beach

I need you, I need you here
I need you now, I need security somehow
I need you like you would not believe
You're the only thing I want
'Cause you're everything, everything

I need you, I need you here
I need you now, I need security somehow
'Cause you're everything, everything, everything
(I need you, I need you now)

    General CommentThis song absolutely rocks! I love it! They are crying out to God that they need him. This has to be my favorite Relient K song yet. I have felt very much this way before, so it is so cool to have a song from my favorite band that's about it.

    General CommentThis is how I'm hearing it:

    I've dug up miles and miles of sand
    Searching for something I can't see
    I've just got bruised and battered hands
    And a brand new void inside of me

    Complete with walls I did create
    From all the earth that I've displaced
    A mess that I have made from what
    I just left high and piled up

    Explore the cave that is my chest
    The torch reveals there's nothing left
    Your whispers echo off the walls
    And you can hear my distant calls

    I can't hear the part in the bridge though =/ Amazing song, though.

    I left out all the 'woah-oh-oh' things.

    General CommentPeople commenting with lyrics pisses me off like nothing else. You're just writing down what you heard, the same way I did. When the album comes out, I'll buy it and fix the lyrics to what they say in the booklet. For now, stfu.

    General CommentI love the song, it makes me look forward to the cd even more than I have been. I think the song is clearly about the need for God in our lives. Also that God is always will be there for us, as Matt says he has not been abandoned.

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS SO AWESOME!!!!!
    An up-beat song with a truly astounding meaning!

    I believe the meaning is PROCLAIMING that we need Him, Jesus Christ. I think this new cd coming out on March 6, 2006, is going to be AWESOME...
    another song that is good is "forgiven"
