"Everything I Own" as written by and David Gates....
You sheltered me from harm
You kept me warm, you kept me warm
And you gave my life to me
You set me free, you set me free
The finest years I ever knew
Were all the years I had with you

And I would give everything I own
I'd 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 watching you
Nobody else could ever know
The part of me that can't let go

And I would give everything I own
I'd give up my life, my heart, and 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 long to say

Yeah
Give up my life, give up my heart
Everything I own

You know, baby
My love for you will always be true
That's right
Because there is no me without you

I would give everything I own
Everything I own
Nobody can love you, like I do

And I would give everything I own
I'd give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again
Just to have you back again

    General Commenti think they did a great cover. and this song has sentimental meanings for me. the first time i listen to this song, my grandmother had just passed away. and i would do anything to have her back.

    this song is about losing a loved one, break-up or in the passing of a loved one, and the want to have them back in your life.

    General CommentI like breads version. LIP*SYNC raped the song, and if I ever meet ANYONE from the band in the real world, I will fucking slice their dicks off for raping such a good song.

    OH WAIT! I FORGOT! It's a pussy boy band, and boy bands don't have dicks!

    General Commentyeah. nsync is another excuse for a musical group. cant even write their own music..gotta steal breads. if bread had a musical battle against nsync, they would destroy the boy band with masterfully written smooth pieces of ear-tickling art
