“Seek and you will find,” they say
But I've been looking everyday
For a way past this wall that’s in front of my face
I'm on hands and knees searching for my faith
I know there’s so much at stake
But I don't know if I can take
One more pat on the back saying I'll be okay
Can’t they see my whole life is in disarray
I know You hear me, would You give me sign?
Reel me in before I fall out of line
You put me on a path I don’t understand
I’m standing on a ledge waving my hands
(You’ve got me desperate)
Do You see me?
Do You hear me?
Will You help me?
You've got me Desperate
I know You’re my only hope
The only One who truly knows
How it feels, what it’s like when it all starts to fall
You're the One I can trust who hears when I call
Some things I'll never figure out
Until I let hope erase my doubt

Behind the Song:
“This song is about being in a place where you have pushed past all of your own abilities, and you come to realize that if God doesn't come through for you, you're not going to be able to survive. Sometimes in those times we don't understand why God hasn't done something yet, and we feel like we can't even see Him anymore, but it's during those hardest times that God really comes through in the biggest way. This song is about just being desperate for God and crying out for Him and just demanding that He step into your situation and help you.” ~ Dawn Michele (Fireflight
