"The Blackness of the Need" as written by and Ron Block....
Seems I've always waited for someone
Almost like it was a part of me
I never seemed to find someone to lean on
Disappointment always brought me to my knees

In the silent hour of a darkness
Pictures of the past run through my head
Desperation blows like wind before a hard rain
'Cause what I need, I never seem to get

I know, I know the answer, 'cause I've seen it all before
The broken heart is soil for the seed
But still I ask the question 'bout a thousand times or more
The answer's in the blackness of the need

I knew that I'd been looking for the wrong thing
I'd see the depths and wonder what I craved
I find a deathless want for something deeper
A love beyond the cradle and the grave

In the soul, the hour of the sunrise
Quieting the voices of the mind
The Cross is there in truth and in Spirit
Turning all the darkness into light

I knew, I knew the answer, 'cause I've seen it all before
You're the only answer I can see
And when the question's ended I will say forevermore
I found You in the blackness of the need?
