(ty lacy/dennis matkosky)

I don't need a lot of things
I can get by with nothing
Of all the blessings life can bring
I've always needed something
But I've got all I want
When it comes to loving you
You're my only reason
You're my only truth

I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
From heaven's gate
There's a freedom in your arms
That carries me through
I need you

You're the hope that moves me
To courage again
You're the love that rescues me
When the cold winds, rage
And it's so amazing
'cause that's just how you are
And I can't turn back now
'cause you've brought me too far

I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
From heaven's gate
There's a freedom in your arms
That carries me through
I need you
Oh yes I do

I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
From heaven's gate
There's a freedom in your arms
That carries me through
I need you
Oh yes I do
I need you
I need you

    To me its an inspirationational song
    'of all the blessings life can bring'
    'you're my only reason
    You're my only truth'

    'i need you like water
    Like breath, like rain
    I need you like mercy
    From heaven's gate
    There's a freedom in your arms
    That carries me through'

    'you're the hope that moves me
    To courage again
    You're the love that rescues me
    When the cold winds, rage'

    Heavens gate.. Mercy... Breath... Water..

    Its basically saying that we need god on this, not just a love mate..

    nothing can replace love as the most important thing in this world...we need love to make our lives worth-living and meaningful...loving someone would be the most wonderful experience that will happen in our lives...

    LeAnn Rimes is a great singer, this song is saying that if you love and are loved, then you'll be just fine...Great song... ;-)
