Just To Be Where You Are

{verse 1}
There’s always been a voice deep down inside of me
Telling me I was destined to be a child of the light

But I don’t know, I guess all the confusion and muddiness
Of this world, and my soul
Have caused me to lose sight, an so

Fear comes in to try to steal my trust,
And so I fight, fight
To never let it go

I’m not clever, but I know this,
That when you find love
Boy, you never let it go

And I don’t know everything that’s going on
All I know is I really want to see your face
To feel the warmth of your embrace–
Just to be where you are

And I don’t know what this world is gonna do
All I know is I really want to feel your touch–
I know, but I need
To feel how much You love me,

Please, don’t go away
Please, show me Your face
Please, don’t go away

{chorus}
I just want to be where you are
I just feel so far away
And now I need you to hold me

Lord, please–
What can I say?
You know I’m dying for you
And my desire for you
Is simply more than my heart can take

Jesus, please, won’t You come
Take me away

{verse 2}
I know there are those days when the Gory falls down
And all of creation seems to be singing Your song–

When all the bills are paid, and the battles are won,
And it feels like nothing in the world could go wrong

But I’m not going to lie
Today is not one of those days–
There isn’t a fiber in my being that feels strong

And everything in my world,
And everything in my family
Everything, everything seems to be wrong,
And so–

Fear comes in to try to steal my trust,
And I fight, fight
To never let You go

I’m not clever, but I know this,
That now I’ve found love
And now I’ll never let you go

And I don’t know everything that’s going on
All I know is I really want to see your face
To feel the warmth of your embrace–
Just to be where you are

And I don’t know what this world is gonna do
All I know is I really want to feel your touch–
I know, but I need
To feel how much You love me,

Please, don’t go away
Please, show me Your face
Please, don’t go away

{chorus}
I just want to be where you are
I just feel so far away
And now I need you to hold me

Lord, please–
What can I say?
You know I’m dying for you
And my desire for you
Is simply more than my heart can take

Jesus, please, won’t You come
Take me away

{the end}
