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

10

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
