Thirst Is Taking Over
by Skillet



You alone are what my soul needs
And now the thirst is taking over.
Hardly breathe, I'm in wretched need
Now the thirst is taking over.
The thirst is taking over.

Hold me down, hold me down
Dripping on my soul and my convulsions stop.
Thirst for love
Thirst for the love
I could swallow Your beauty whole.

You alone are what my soul needs
And now the thirst is taking over.
Hardly breathe, I'm in wretched need
You know the thirst is taking over.

Running out: time's running out,
Searching for the One who can conquer me.
I'm gonna scream aloud, throw it down
Crash in the sweet obsession of You
I'm gonna swim and drown
In the wake of You.

You alone are what my soul needs
You know the thirst is taking over.
Hardly breathe, I'm in wretched need
You know the thirst is taking over.
You know the thirst is taking over.

Bridge:
I wanna taste it
I need to taste it
Deep in the Savior's arms. (Repeat x6)

You alone are what my soul needs
You know the thirst is taking over.
Hardly breathe, I'm in wretched need
You know the thirst is taking over. (Repeat Chorus x3)

I wanna drink you in
I am drinking you in
I wanna drink you in day to day.

Hardly breathe, I'm in wretched need.
You know the thirst is taking over.
You know the thirst is taking over.

(Repeat Bridge x4)
