TobyMac
The Story Behind The Song
"I Just Need U."

By TobyMac

  TobyMac's latest single, "I Just Need U" entered Billboard's Contemporary Christian music charts at #1. It's the followup to his hit from last summer, "Love Broke Thru," from the album This Is Not A Test, that made it to #3.

  TobyMac is also on the charts as part of Mandisa's hit "Bleed The Same." They are joined by Kirk Franklin on the collaboration.

  "I Just Need U" marks the first new music from the seven-time GRAMMY winner since 2015. TobyMac once again collaborated with Bryan Fowler alongside Finding Favour's Blake NeeSmith. The cover animation video is already trending at No. 17 on YouTube.

  "It feels so great to be back in the studio again working passionately on songs that will hopefully meet people right where they are," shares TobyMac. "'I Just Need U.' is where I land time and again after my futile attempts to handle life on my own. I AM a born defector learning every day that the sweetest place and the only RIGHT place for me, is turning back and falling into the arms of a loving God."

  The multi-platinum selling artist provided fans an early glimpse of the song with a single release party at Citizen in Downtown Franklin, Tennessee on January 4. Fans celebrated the release of TobyMac's first new single in two plus years, and were treated to an exclusive meet & greet along with a limited edition vinyl 45 of the single.

  This is his story behind the song ..

  "I don't know how it happens. But, somehow or other, the world tricks us into thinking its going to satisfy us. And, it happens to me over and over and over again. The very things that I look to to satisfy me, fail me.

  "How can I wake up to a house full of beautiful kids, but still wake up heavy hearted? Wake up lonely? I think its because I'm counting on things that will never satisfy me. I think its easy to look to those things to fulfill us.
  "Even as far as a husband and wife relationship. When we start looking to that to fulfill us, sooner or later, it will let us down. That's why, in this song, I just cry out...I just need U.
 
  "And, then, you move into the spiritual realm of it all. I've always thought of Psalm 23. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."

  "And, I think, for the first time, I saw that verse through the eyes of a spiritual fight and not a physical fight. Those are the things that birthed the song, "I Just Need U."

  "I hope it moves you the way it moved me."

I Just Need U

I just need U.

Last night put the heavy on me
Woke up, and I'm feeling lonely
This world gotta a way of showin' me
Some days it'll lift you up
Some days it'll call your bluff
Man, most of my days I ain't got enough

And all I know is You're my only hope

When I'm up, when I'm down
When the wolves come around
When my feet hit the ground
I just need, I just need U
On my darkest days, when I'm losing faith
No, it ain't gonna change
I just need, I just need U
Lord, I need U
Yeah, I just need U

Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff ...
They comfort me
when I'm beat down broken
Hold my heart when it's split wide-open
Turn these eyes to my sole protector
And break the will of this born defector

When You pull me closer I come to life

Ain't no way this thing gon' change,
it's U I need on my darkest days,
when I'm losing faith
I need U every single day,
every breath I take
I need U
