Paul Alan – The One Thing lyrics

The one thing
Brad O'Donnell/Paul Alan

Drive away the cold from this winter soul
And renew your spirit in me
Let the rain fall sweet from your mercy seat
And remind me that you never will forget
To wash away the bitter in the end...

Cause we all reach for something
Don't we--don't we?
We do
Live and breathe this one thing
Don't we--don't we?
We do

And I know you're there just beyond this prayer
And I believe you silent as you are
And this emptiness is not purposeless
It's only thirst compelling us to drink
Only questions find the answers that we seek

Every atom in me waits- every breath anticipates
Still if this is what it takes I'll sit right here with you...
