Everything We Need

A baby’s born I can hear her cry

The mother pulls her to her side

Two teenage kids not far from home

Venture into the great unknown

They pledge their love one stormy night

They don’t look back it all feels right

Rings were given each said their part

And big dreams filled their hopeful hearts

C                AM            F        C

Careers, two cars, some kids, a home

If they could have them for their own

        AM                    E                     A

Then they would have everything they need

One by one it came to pass

Luxuries fell in their lap

And set their sights on distant shores

Thinking there they’d find everything they need

They traveled far and traveled wide

        G           D              A      D

And journeyed across the great divide

C          AM         F         C

Only to find their pot of gold

G                D              A          D

Was buried ‘neath their humble home

          AM                 E                        A

It was there they had everything they’d need

Years flashed by in the blink of an eye

They found the King upon His throne

And He said, I have everything you need

Their eyes grew dim then closed to rest

G             D        A                D

No strong hands, no mother’s breast

        C             AM       F              C

And when they opened they could see

The far side of eternity
