about

Intimate and laid-back, this debut album from Matt Case features 7 new original recordings, offering a revealing look into the artist’s awe-filled reverence for his Creator. With soul-baring honesty, this collection of contemporary music explores the depth of God’s love and His tremendous desire for people to know Him and experience His peace. The overwhelming assurance of God’s presence and everlasting love is clearly seen in the poignant lyrics of the title track “If You Need Me,” a contemporary piece later reimagined as a moving acoustic ballad. While the album’s primary focus is Matt’s spiritual journey, “You’re the One” and “You’ve Always Got Me” tenderly express his deep love for his wife. This project resonates with authenticity at every turn, inviting its listeners to heartfelt worship.

Track Name: If You Need Me
Verse 1
My child I see you down on your knees
Your heart lies open
And I hear your cries for grace
My love for you has stood the test of time
And I’m so glad my child that you are mine
Just say that you love Me
Just say you want Me to stay

Chorus
And if you need Me, you’ll find Me right here
And if you’re hurting I’ll dry all your tears
And if you’re ever lost, I’ll show you the way
I’ve already borne your cross
And the price for your life I have paid
Just speak the words and I’ll be by your side
‘Cause my love is with you
Through both the day and the night
Just listen to my voice

Verse 2
If you want to sit a while and talk
Well that’s okay
‘Cause I love to hear your voice
And hear you speak my name
Let Me say that I love you
Just the thought of you makes Me cry
Let Me say that I miss you
When we’re apart for any time

Chorus
And if you need Me, you’ll find me right here
And if you’re hurting I’ll dry all your tears
And if you’re ever lost, I’ll show you the way
I’ve already borne your cross
And the price for your life I have paid
Just speak the words and I’ll be by your side
‘Cause my love is with you
Through both the day and the night
Just listen to my voice

Ending
And just say you love Me, say you need Me
Say you want Me to stay
‘Cause I died for you, I bled for you
They pierced my side, don’t you know
I took your cross, and I paid the cost
And I did it so you would know
How I love you
How I love you
How I love you
How I love you
Track Name: You're the One
Verse 1
And is it just a chance
You came across my window
And is it just a chance
You looked my way
And is it just a dream
You’re sitting here beside me
And is this just my dream
Of you here with me

Chorus
And I believe that there’s a God
Who took your heart and mine
And set us apart
And I believe that there’s a love
That lives inside my heart
And is meant for only one
And you’re the one

Verse
Now I would never want
To live this life without you
I would never want
To face another day
Cause you are more than what
I could ever wish for
And I want no other love
Than the love you have for me

Chorus
And I believe that there’s a God
Who took your heart and mine
And set us apart
And I believe that there’s a love
That lives inside my heart
And is meant for only one
And you’re the one

Bridge
I believe that there’s a God
Who took your heart and put it with mine
And I believe that my loves meant for you

Chorus
And I believe that there’s a God
Who took your heart and mine
And set us apart
And I believe that there’s a love
That lives inside my heart
And is meant for only one
And you’re the one

Ending
I believe that there’s a God
Who took your heart and put it with mine
And I believe that my loves meant for you
Track Name: Sweep You Away
Verse 1
I pass the gates on the left and the right
Not a sound I make as I move towards your light
Tears of pain roll down from my eyes
My world’s torn apart and my heart cries

Verse 1b
Torn in two, I move towards your throne
For it is the place my soul longs to go
My heart I lay at your feet
And I find my peace
And I feel your love surround me
As I hear you say these words to me

Chorus 1
If your arms can’t seem to reach me
If your love can’t’ seem to find me
If the road you’re on
Doesn’t seem to come my way
If the battle that you’re fighting
Doesn’t seem to be worth the trying
If it seems as though my love is far away

Verse 2
When the journey is long and wild
When my heart is torn and tired
When the daily run of life takes my joy away
Your love come to surround me
As I hear you say these words to me

Chorus 2
If your arms can’t seem to reach me
If your love can’t’ seem to find me
If the road you’re on
Doesn’t seem to come my way
If the battle that you’re fighting
Doesn’t seem to be worth the trying
If it seems as though my love is far away
Just look inside your heart
And you’ll see my face
On bended knee bow your head and pray
My child my love will sweep you away
It’ll sweep you away
Track Name: You Say
Verse 1
To the void You speak and there is formed
From dark to light You create the morn’
From dust to man You brought forth life
Oh God the world declares Your might

Chorus 1
Yet You say that Your love is set on me
And You say that You heart desires my peace

Verse 2
The storms and winds obey Your voice
Yet still Your thoughts for me rejoice
How could the God of all know I exist?
Yet still I know that I am His

Chorus 2
Yet You say that Your love is set on me
And You say that You heart desires my peace
From the way You saved me from the grave
This I say that in You I live and breathe

Bridge
For You know and see
All things in me
You’re the God by whom
All life is breathed
You’re the Lord of all
Yet You know my every need
And when the sparrow falls
You hear and grieve
For Your heart is good
And above all things
Your love remains
For those who call on Your name

Chorus 2
Yet You say that Your love is set on me
And You say that You heart desires my peace
From the way You saved me from the grave
This I say that in You I live and breathe
You say!
This I say!
Track Name: You've Always Got Me
Verse 1
Baby, baby I know sometimes
That your world is dark and lonely inside
So I’ll try to make it right
Baby, baby there’s a song inside
That screams to come alive
When you look at me and smile

Pre-Chorus
And I know that there are days
When it seems you’ve lost your way
Let me be the one to say that I love you
And I know that there are times
When it seems you’ve lost your mind
But before you go away
Let me stand here and say

Chorus
You’ve always got me
Through the brokenness
And the loneliness
And the heaviness
That makes life a mess
Let me show you what you mean to me
You’ve always got me
Through the hardest times
When no hope’s alive
And the tears you cry
Keep you awake at night
Let me show you what you mean to me

Verse 2
Now tell me, tell me your dreams for life
And the hopes you tuck away down inside
Let me know what makes you smile
Come be near me as I say tonight
There’s no other song on earth so fine
As the one that we will write

Pre-Chorus
And I know that there are days
When it seems you’ve lost your way
Let me be the one to say that I love you
And I know that there are times
When it seems you’ve lost your mind
But before you go away
Let me stand here and say

Chorus
You’ve always got me
Through the brokenness
And the loneliness
And the heaviness
That makes life a mess
Let me show you what you mean to me
You’ve always got me
Through the hardest times
When no hope’s alive
And the tears you cry
Keep you awake at night
Let me show you what you mean to me

Bridge
What can I say, what can I do
To show my love for you?
What can I say, what can I do
For you?

Chorus
You’ve always got me
Through the brokenness
And the loneliness
And the heaviness
That makes life a mess
Let me show you what you mean to me
You’ve always got me
Through the hardest times
When no hope’s alive
And the tears you cry
Keep you awake at night
Let me show you what you mean
Let me show you what you mean
I will show you what you mean to me
Track Name: How Could He
Chorus
How could the nails pierce the skin of my Lord?
How could these hands press the crown that He wore?
How could my sin require His death on that tree?
Oh wretched soul!
How could Christ still love me?

Verse
Who is this God of all?
What is this love He has shown?
That He would trade His place
And come to rescue my soul.
Lived out a perfect life,
He walked the path of His call.
The sin that I had owned
He covered once and for all.

Chorus
How could the nails pierce the skin of my Lord?
How could these hands press the crown that He wore?
How could my sin require His death on that tree?
Oh wretched soul!
How could Christ still love me?

Bridge
It was His mercy, Yeah! It was His Grace!
The God of love made flesh came down
And took my place
Oh hallelujah I’ve been redeemed!
Oh hallelujah love died for me!
Love died for me!
Love died for me!
Love died for me!

Ending
Oh! Every whip, every thorn, every shame,
Every sin that bore my name.
On His back, to the death, one for all,
By that He conquered my grave!
How could He, knowing me,
See my sin, and yet desire my peace?
Oh what love, oh what grace,
Sovereign Lord, this is the song I sing!
Love died for me!
