Tenth Avenue North – Times lyrics

I know I need You
I need to love You
I love to see You, but it's been so long
I long to feel You
I feel this need for You
And I need to hear You, is that so wrong?

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

Now You pull me near You
When we're close, I fear You
Still I'm afraid to tell You, all that I've done
Are You done forgiving?
Oh can You look past my pretending?
Lord, I'm so tired of defending, what I've become
What have I become?

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

I hear You say,
"My love is over. It's underneath.
It's inside. It's in between.
The times you doubt Me, when you can't feel.
The times that you question, 'Is this for real? '
The times you're broken.
The times that you mend.
The times that you hate Me, and the times that you bend.
Well, My love is over, it's underneath.
It's inside, it's in between.
These times you're healing, and when your heart breaks.
The times that you feel like you're falling from grace.
The times you're hurting.
The times that you heal.
The times you go hungry, and are tempted to steal.
The times of confusion, in chaos and pain.
I'm there in your sorrow, under the weight of your shame.
I'm there through your heartache.
I'm there in the storm.
My love I will keep you, by My pow'are alone.
I don't care where you fall, where you have been.
I'll never forsake you, My love never ends.
It never ends. "

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

    "Times" represents the battle of life to me. I recently have gone through a patch in my life when it felt like everyone was leaving me. I blamed God for that because He had made this happen to me before. It started with resent toward God and then slowly moved into a hatred of Him. I could stand going to church or even opening my Bible. Anytime I heard His name I would just stop talking. It became harder and harder to live this way. Every time I skipped church I was expecting people to come tell me they missed me, but no one ever did. Then I realized something. I was looking for everything in the wrong place and in the wrong way. God didn't take those people out of my life, but rather He placed new ones in it. I was looking at people to confirm my relationship with God when in fact I should have been looking at God. This song represents the struggle I have gone through, and God's love for me along the way. I hope everyone going through struggles will understand how much God loves them.

    The song "times" makes me thing of when I was having a really rough time in life. I just got over alcoholism and drug abuse and I had realized that I wasnt important to the people that I thought I was important to. I felt completely lost and I had no idea where or who to go to. This song was the story of my life. But it told me everything was going to be okay.

    Now I have redevoted my life to god and its been 6 days and iv done great. And now I see god every day working in my life.
