From the album Love Was Here First.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

You want the best for me but I don’t want to take it
Today the best just seems to cost too much
I know to mend a heart sometimes You have to break it
But I don’t have the strength to choose that love

But I am willing – to be willing
And I am ready to be moved
And I am longing – for the longing
That pulls me close to You

The only place that I am filled is at Your table
And still I starve myself day after day
I cannot chose Your will unless You make me able
That’s why You say You are the only way


I’ll send the guards away who keep my heart
I’m making space for You, a place to start


Please pull me close to You
