Lyrics

Only You

Written By: Matthew Getsi

I used to study people’s faces, looking for some kind of sign
That would tell me of the love they had for me.
But much to my despair I found, the people always let me down
A hundred people still could never meet my need

‘Cause there’s a God-shaped hole inside my heart
And no one else could take your place or play your part

CHORUS
Only you can meet my every need
Only you can bring joy from my pain
Only you can make me feel loved again
Only you, only you

There are times when I feel you flowing through me
And the rapture of it carries me away
But even this is a vague taste, I want to see you face to face
I want to walk with you in the garden every day

(CHORUS)

There’s a hole in my heart that yearns for love that’s true
There’s just one love for me and it’s only you.

-Lead Break-

‘Cause there’s a God-shaped hole inside my heart
And no one else could take your place or play your part

Only you can meet my every need
Only you can bring joy from my pain
Only you can make me feel loved again
Only you, only you
Only you can make me feel so strong
You can make me feel like I belong
I want to wrap myself up in your arms
I do, oh I do

I'll Be There For You

Written By: Matthew Getsi

Sometimes the distance makes you feel so all alone
What makes it worse is that you’re just half a mile away
For three years you were my stepson. We had our trials and had some fun
But when I see you now, you turn and look away

Cause the world, it whispers in your ear
and tells you what you want to hear
And promises everything that you could ever want
But when it breaks your heart and lets you down
and your good time friends just can’t be found
When the promises have turned out to be lies, please remember me

I’ll be there for you, Be in prayer for you, I’ll be there for you
When life lets you down, I’ll still be around; I’ll be there for you

You found the Lord and you turned your life around
And for a while your fire burned so bright and strong
But the brightness has begun to fade and your fires growing cold
Cause a spirit that don’t get fed can’t last too long

So when your peace of mind has been destroyed
And the things you buy don’t bring you joy
And your hopes and dreams don’t pan out like you want
When you’re always angry and afraid
And you curse the days your God has made
When you’re battling thoughts that you just can’t control, please remember me

I’ll be there for you, Be in prayer for you, I’ll be there for you
When life lets you down, I’ll still be around; I’ll be there for you

The Word, it says that there’s no height nor depth, not life or death
No power at all that can keep us from His love
And since I am a part of the Body of Christ
Satan has no power to separate us, we are victorious

I’ll be there for you, Be in prayer for you, I’ll be there for you
When life lets you down, I’ll still be around; I’ll be there for you
(Repeat as add-lib parts are sung)

I will be there. Don’t ever doubt that this is true. I will be there for you.
No matter what you’ve said or done, you will always be my son
I’ll be in prayer for you, be there for you and never give you up.
There is no height nor depth, not life or death, nor guilt nor pain
No sin or stain, not anything that can keep you from His love
He’ll leave the ninety-nine and come to find you all alone
And lead you home and you will know the power of his love.

Don’t doubt that this is true. I will be there for you.
No matter what you’ve said or done, you will always be my son
I’ll be in prayer for you, be there for you and never give you up.
