03. Desire

by Phil Wickham


Iím running through the gates of love, as fast as I can
I canít wait to see You Iím a desperate man
You made the light and sent it down
to show us who You are
Now Itís bursting out my heart

My desire is burning like a million stars
And Iíll keep reaching out, reaching out for You
My desire, is burning with the fire You sparked
And Iíll keep reaching out, reaching out for You

Iíd be nothing without You, yeah I would die
If I didnít have Your hand if I couldnít look into Your eyes
Jesus if Your loveís the fuel then Iím the desperate flame
Thatís screaming out Your name

This is glory rising, over a new horizon
I See Your love, I feel Your smile
Your in my heart and I will run with all I have to You

Behind the Song:
"This song is about a longing to be with God and yearning for His presence. Itís about wanting to run deeper into Him, to know Him more, to continue moving forward. I had all of the music and melody written for this song a while before I sat down to write the lyrics. But Once I did sit down with a pen and a piece of paper it wasnít very hard. The lyrics just spilled out onto the paper. The whole feel of the song is hopeful. Kind of like joy and urgency wrapped up in a bunch of drums, bass, electric guitars" - Phil Wickham
