What I Need

I've got a head full of dreams - and time here to scheme
This ain't good
I'm thinking, you know,
about what did and didn't go like it should.
All of these expectations
Just mean my heart will be breaking
Why can't I see?

You give me what I need
Even on the brightest day
Even in a hurricane
You give me what I need
Even when there's way too much
Even when I'm down to dust

I've troubled with time
But its will was not mine
There's no slowin' where it was goin'
The wishes I willed
All came back unfulfilled
I was prayin' without patience
All of those expectations
Just meant my heart was breaking
Why can't I see?

I keep calm, carry on
Like nothing ever went wrong
That's what I'm gonna do
Laugh it off, move along
Get back where I belong
Live my life by leaning on You
