Times by Tenth Avenue North

I've had this CD for a while, but haven't listened to it in a month or two. Guess I never "heard" the words to this song - it brought tears to my eyes, and I listened over and over.
It reads like a conversation between me and God, and oh, isn't it so wonderful that He doesn't care where I've fallen, doesn't care where I've been, He'll NEVER forsake me, His love for me NEVER ends. How blessed I am to know HIM. HE is ALL I need, HE is sufficient.

I know i need you
I need to love you
I love to see you, and its been so long
i long to feel you
i feel this need for you
and i need to hear you
is that so wrong?
oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
now you pulled me near you
when we're close i fear yous
till im afraid to tell you
all that i've done
are you done forgiving?
or can you look pass my pretending?
Lord i'm so tired of defending
what i've become
what have i become?
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh. (repeat 4)
i hear you say "my love is over,its underneath, its inside, its in between
the times you doubt me, when you can't feel the times that you've questioned 'is this for real?
the times you've broken, the times that you mend
the times you hate me and the times that you bend
well my love is over, its underneath
its inside, its in between,these times you're healing
and when your heart breaks
the times that you feel like you've fallen from grace
the times you're hurting
the times that you heal
the times you go hungry and *are tempted* to steal
in times of confusion and chaos and pain
im there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
im there through your heartache
im there in the storm
my love i will keep you by my power alone
i dont care where you've fallen, where you have been
i'll never forsake you
my love never ends, it never ends
mmm, mmmoh oh, oh oh, oh oh
