Behind The Song: Cody Carnes Shares The Heart Behind His Song “Nothing Else”

8

This week’s featured song story comes to us from Cody Carnes. We’re excited to share with you the story behind his song “Nothing Else.”

I came to a place a few months ago where I realized that I had just let some of the stuff creep into my heart where I was more concerned with what God could do for me and what He could give me than just Him.I started to be disappointed cause things didn’t work out the way I thought they would or things weren’t being answered the way I thought they should. And I just had a moment one day where I just kinda recognized that in my heart and I realized it for the first time. It just broke me and I said ‘God you know I don’t want that, I want you.’ So I wanted to write this song just to repent. To really turn from that into, ok I’m coming back to what really matters.” – Cody Carnes

“Nothing Else” Lyrics

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

Oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
More than anything that You can do
I just want You

I’m sorry when I’ve just gone through the motions
I’m sorry when I just sang another song
Take me back to where we started
I open up my heart to You
I’m sorry when I’ve come with my agenda
I’m sorry when I forgot that You’re enough
Take me back to where we started
I open up my heart to You

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

Oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
And more than anything that You can do
I just want You

I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else, Jesus
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else
Nothing else will do
I just want You
Nothing else, nothing else, Jesus
Nothing else will do

I’m coming back to where we started
I’m coming back to where we started
When I first felt Your love
You’re all that matters, Jesus
You’re all that matters
I’m coming back to what really matters
Just Your heart
I just want to bless Your heart, Jesus

I’m caught up in Your presence
I just want to sit here at Your feet
I’m caught up in this holy moment
I never want to leave

And oh, I’m not here for blessings
Jesus, You don’t owe me anything
More than anything that You can do
Oh, I just want You
