Lyrics

Intro

S.O.S. I’m a castaway
Trying to make it back home
Hope is far and I’m losing faith
Thirsting deep in my soul
I fell for the lies that they sold me
A mirage that left
My spirits broken
Now I need You to show me
I’m not on my own

Pre Chorus

I’m tired of wandering alone
I hear Your voice
Call me home

Chorus

Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your love
Nothing else will ever be enough
More than the air
That’s in my lungs
Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your grace
I need You and I’m unashamed
Breathe new life into my veins
Desesperado

Verse 2

I’m desperate I confess
I’m a mess and I’m finally here
At the end of myself
Quería ser aventurero
Pero ya soy extranjero
And now I’m calling out for help
Tenía un pie en la tumba
Felt like I was doomed
But my failures You turned around
Spoke to these dry bones
Mis huesos secos
Guide me to Your heart
My promised land

Pre Chorus

I’m tired of wandering alone
I hear Your voice
Call me home

Chorus

Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your love
Nothing else will ever be enough
More than the air
That’s in my lungs
Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your grace
I need You and I’m unashamed
Breathe new life into my veins
Desesperado

Bridge

There’s only one way
I’ll pull through
And if it's the last thing that I do
I will brave the driest desert
If it leads me back to You
I’m laying down my pride
I’m giving You my life
Without You I know I am

Chorus

Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your love
Nothing else will ever be enough
More than the air
That’s in my lungs
Desesperado
Oh I’m desperate for Your grace
I need You and I’m unashamed
Breathe new life into my veins
Desesperado

Behind The Song | Evan Craft's “Desesperado”

Friday, February 19, 2021

“The Psalmist says ‘As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God’ (Psalm 42:1). We are constantly reminded throughout the Bible of our desperate need for the Lord. As much as we may try to rescue ourselves, fill ourselves, the truth is, we need God. Our souls are desperate for His living water to revive us, to renew us. 

The title track of my album, “Desesperado” is a fun, latin, pop song centered around a journey of understanding my personal need for the Lord. I tend to go in a cycle of calling out for the Lord to save me/ help me, feeling safe or successful, and falling back on my face. I always regret the moments when I feel self-sufficient. My desire is to humbly acknowledge my need for God 24/7. 

“Desesperado” and the rest of the album are a collection of songs that reminded me throughout 2020, during the recording process, that God is in control, He is sovereign, and He is mighty to save. I say that confidently now, but in the midst of the trials it is very difficult to recognize the truth that God will lead me to the other side of each challenge. It’s a step of faith and maturity to say, “I can’t do this on my own,” not a sign of weakness. Desperation is not a bad thing, it isn’t a reflection on my character, but on the power and sovereignty of God. 

What are some areas of your life where you can recognize your desperate need for the Lord? Sometimes we are banging our heads against a wall, trying to break through with our own strength, and we need a mighty hand to move. Are you desperate for finances, applause, or recognition? We all thirst for something to satiate our souls, but there is only one fount with living water. Make sure you are desperately seeking Him. - Evan Craft
