I Know What You Need

key of [C]

Long before you were thirsty
I planted a tree
Beside bitter water
And it made the water sweet
It grew and made the water sweet

Before you ever knew hunger
I planted a seed
You can trust me, darling
I know what you need
I know what you need

You can rest
Your weary head
Upon my breast
I know what you need

And when you close your eyes
I hope you can see
The picture of love I’ve painted
It’s a gift to you from me
A gift to you from me

Because I wrote songs for the love of it for so long I can say ‘I am a songwriter and whether I make money from it or not, I’m still going to write songs because its one of my favorite things to do.’ The fact that it becomes a recording is secondary, it’s not a motivation.
