I know it's been a long time since the last time we talked
I know I've been a stranger and that's all my fault
And asking you for anything don't really seem right
But the winds of change are blowing so I'm begging you tonight

Give me love when I ain't got nobody
A little hope when I ain't got none at all
Give me light up ahead on the journey
Give me strength when I'm standing
And faith when I fall

I know the rain is coming and it's sure gonna pour
I know there ain't no running from this kinda storm
It's gonna get harder and harder to keep on pushing through
I'm gonna wanna quit, so I'll be counting on you

To give me love when I ain't got nobody
A little hope when I ain't got none at all
Give me light up ahead on the journey
Give me strength when I'm standing
And faith when I fall

But when the clouds start parting and the sun starts shining through
This time I won't forget, I won't forget about you, yeah

Give me love when I ain't got nobody
A little hope when I ain't got none at all
Give me love when I ain't got nobody
A little hope when I ain't got none at all
Give me light up ahead on the journey
Give me strength when I'm standing
And faith when I fall
Give me strength when I'm standing
And faith when I fall, yeah

Song facts

"I wrote that the day after I was offered the record deal from MCA Nashville. You get so used to not getting what you want for so long; you get used to getting your teeth kicked in. I know everybody sacrifices a lot, but I felt like I had sacrificed so much to get to where I was trying to be.

I'm a spiritual person and I have my faith. I spent many nights praying for the faith and strength just to keep me going and keep me at it because so many times I wanted to go home because it seemed pointless. I was just talking about that with Brett and saying that even though I had gotten to where I'd wanted to be, now there's a whole other place I want to go and there's a whole other journey and climb. I think the song is not just about music, but the climb itself. Whatever you do for a living, whatever dreams you have, it's a constant fight. Once you get that, you want something else.

The song was a thank-you to the prayers I've prayed over the years and then the asking part of it to keep me going. It was thank you and a request all in one. Because I know I am not there. I know I don't walk the straightest line at times, but I always believe, even when I'm not walking a straight line." - Kip Moore
