06. I Need You

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James



 

Wide open my life is now
I hide no more behind the mask
And what you see is what I am, itís reality

For too long I walked alone
I tried to prove that I was strong
But now that part of me is gone
And I am free, free to be

I need you
And there is nothing I must prove
For you are a friend who loves at all times
I thank God for you
I love you
I need you

I think back to all the times
That you have shown the meaning of love and grace
Your embrace inspires me
To be better

And now I want to be
The one who loves you like you love me
And comforts you with the comfort Iíve been given from above
Now Iím giving you my love
ĎCauseÖ

Behind the Song:
ďI wrote this song about my best friend, Karleen. I think for a long time I felt like I needed to be this strong, independent young woman who didnít really show weakness. I felt like it was not a positive thing to be vulnerable. God has really seriously changed my thinking on this. In the beginning of the song, Iím talking about this shift that happened in my life. Iím singing this song to my best friend and just saying, ĎI need you.í Also Iím talking about the beautiful unconditional love she has for meóand that I thank God for her. She has truly enriched my life with this God-given friendship she has offered me. Itís a song that I hope people can sing to their friends. Itís a song that embraces Ďcommunityí Ėwhich is a word that I love.Ē - Rebecca St. James
