"What I Need"

I knew all the answers,
The way my life should go.
And when I used to say my prayers,
I would tell God so.

It seemed He wasn't listening,
I thought He didn't care.

But lookin' back,
It's plain to see,
He was always there.

'Cause I prayed for strength,
And I got pain that made me strong.
I prayed for courage,
And got fear to overcome.

When I prayed for faith,
My empty heart brought me to my knees.
I don't always get what I want,
I get what I need.

I'm not sayin' that it's easy.
Or that it doesn't hurt.
When nothing seems to go my way.
Nothing seems to work.

These days I'm getting better,
At goin' with the flow.
Accepting that sometimes the answer,
To a prayer is no.

'Cause I prayed for strength,
And I got pain that made me strong.
I prayed for courage,
And I got fear to overcome.

When I prayed for faith,
My empty heart brought me to my knees.
I don't always get what I want,
I get what I need.

Every time I've had a door slammed in my face,
In time a better one was opened in its place.

I prayed for strength,
And I got pain that made me strong.
I prayed for courage,
And got fear to overcome.

When I prayed for faith,
My empty heart brought me to my knees.
I don't always get what I want,
I get what I need.

Oh I don't always get what I want,
I get what I need.
