1. Need

From the recording Eden Slips Away


I saw you in the distance
As the rain fell from the sky
Tried to cross the canyon
But the water was too high
So I stand and stare
As you strike your sails
And head into the storm
Hoping that these bitter winds
Will someday bring you home
I’m haunted by the spirits
Of the things that used to be
You’re all I need
You’re all I need
I was running in slow motion
Calling out your name
I worshipped at your alter
On broken glass I prayed
But I lost you in the desert
Had I lost you long ago
I crawled inside your quick sand eyes
As deep as I could go
I’m broken in the places
That nobody sees but me
You’re all I need
You’re all I need
All of my heart
All of my love
It’s still not enough
It’s still not enough
Last night as I lay sleeping
I reached to touch your face
I awoke as you were fading
And then I heard that westbound train
I can’t bring you back
But I still can’t set you free
You’re all I need
Still not enough, Still not enough
