The Thirst Is Taking Over

Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.


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

The thirst is taking over...

Hold me down, hold me down.
Drip it on my tongue, and my convulsions stop.
Thirst for love, thirst for your love
I could swallow your beauty whole.
 
(Chorus)

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

I wanna taste it, I need to taste it
Deep in the savior's arms.
 
(Chorus)

I wanna drink You in, I am drinking You in
I wanna drink You in 'til I die, the day I die, the day
 
(Chorus)
