Everything I Own

Everything I Own
(As recorded by Bread)
David Gates
You sheltered me from harm
Kept me warm… kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free… set me free
The finest years I ever knew
Were all the years I had with youAnd I would give anything I own
Would give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.You taught me how to love
What it’s of… what it’s of
You never said too much
But still you showed the way, and I knew
From watchin’ you
Nobody else could ever know
The part of me that can’t let go.And I would give anything I own
Would give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.
Is there someone you know, you’re loving them so
But taking them all for granted?
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And they don’t hear the words you longed to say.

I would give anything I own
Would give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again
Just to touch you once again.
