I think I caught a glimpse of a life without friends
Bitter, empty, hollow, dark and lonely
We never meant to hurt each other so can't we trust again
And take it as a chance to keep on growing

Well, I don't know why it doesn't come easy
But I know that we could be happy
If we'd only learn to love

Oh, oh, we need each other so what's the fighting for
Oh, oh, we need each other, please don't close the door
Oh, oh, we need each other through all the highs and lows
Oh, oh, we need each other 'cause no one's meant to be alone

Life revolves around the need of having someone
Causing every complicated feeling
Oh and I don't want to lose you so there is nothing wrong with
Telling me what you need to keep our love strong

Oh, it's just a part of being a family
Taking the good with the bad and the ugly
If we could only learn to love

Oh, oh, we need each other so what's the fighting for
Oh, oh, we need each other, please don't close the door
Oh, oh, we need each other through all the highs and lows
Oh, oh, we need each other and I don't wanna be alone

Oh, oh we need each other, fathers and mothers
Oh, oh we need each other, all your sisters and brothers
Oh, oh we need each other, we need friends and lovers
Oh, oh we need each other

I need you, you need me
'Cause that's the way it's meant to be
I need you, we need each other
I don't want to be alone

I need you, you need me
'Cause that's the way it's gotta be
I need you, we need each other
I don't want to be alone

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs of all time. It's about how even though we're just some earth and dirt, God loves us more than anything. The certain sign of grace truly is that God makes our dirt beautiful. :)

    General CommentLiterally made from dirt, after the fall dirty in sin, while God is holy. Humans are prone to depravity, turning away from God and worshiping idols. While we deserve death, he shows grace exemplified at least that flowers grow, and the sun rises another day on the earth. At most it is the very holy God giving his Son for death so we become counted as righteous. He goes over those two concepts in verse 2 and 3. He wraps up at the end saying he is wholly God's now, being bought with a price.

    MemoryWhen I first started going to a new youth group at a nearby church the worship team sang this song. It was one of the greatest experiences, and when singing the lyrics and actually listening to them and meaning them this song helped me realize that I'm a sinner and that I need to try to be more like Jesus. And that no matter how much I had ever rebelled againt The Lord, he is gracious and kind and loves you always.


    "You are holy, holy, holy
    I want to be holy, holy God"

    "I am stained with dirt
    Prone to depravity
    And You are everything
    That is bright and clean
    The antonym of me"

    "So here I am, all of me
    Finally everything.
    ...
    I am wholly Yours."

    This song is great!
