letra de love wants nothing – al denson

i’ve seen the hand of pride reach out
to feed the hunger of my doubt
disguised as an old familiar friend
it promises to lead me on
to meet my need and make me strong
and tells me it won’t break me if i’ll bend
but i’ve been through that lie before
seen what lies behind that door
and what it costs is more that i can pay

chorus:
love wants nothing
love gives everything
love wants nothing
it’s the power of a man with the bread in his hands
the fulfilling of every need
(it’s the power of a man with the bread in his hands)
the blood on the brow of a king
(it’s the pain of a man with a nail in his hand)
the fulfilling of every dream
i have prayed thy will be done
even said thy kingdom come
but often seemed to walk away unchanged
i heard the roar of my own will
drowning out all else until
all that i believed was rearranged
i’ve been through that lie before
seen what lies behind the door
and what it takes is more than i can give
been through those lies before
now there’s so much more
