My heart is made of broken bones
My soul a bag of sticks and stones
And you along this dusty road
Have come my love to take me home
I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
The angels have all gathered 'round
To hear me sing my love out loud

They lightly lifted me away
Above a darkness cold and gray
I work beneath the midday sun
My cold blue water you have come
I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
The angels have all gathered 'round
To hear me sing my love out loud

So take your place here next to me
I'll take my place there next to thee
No matter how far we may roam
It's by your side I make my home
I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
Angels have all gathered round
To hear me sing my love out loud

    General CommentOMG! did i screw these lyrics up! Lemme try again (sorry bout the first time)


    My heart was made of broken bones
    My soul a bag of stick and stone
    But you along this dusty road
    Have come my love to take me home.

    So I give to you my everything
    You've given me these loving wings
    Angels have all gathered 'round
    To hear me sing my love out loud.

    Your lightly love lifted me away
    Out of a darkness cold and gray
    Now I work beneath the midday sun
    My cool blue water you have come.

    So I give to you my everything
    You've given me these loving wings
    Angels have all gathered 'round
    To hear me sing my love out loud.

    So take your place here next to me
    And I'll take my place there next to thee
    And no matter how far we may roam
    It's by your side I'll make my home.

    So I give to you my everything
    You've given me these loving wings
    Angels have all gathered 'round
    To hear me sing my love out loud.

    General CommentDave REALLY needs to record this song a CD because it is flipping awesome. I agree with ants41, watching the Band play this on the Gorge is terrific. Obviously not enough people own the Gorge yet because if they did there would be alot more comments on this song.
    I heart DMB

    General CommentI agree with you guys, the whole Gorge DVD is awesome. This song is especially beautiful; One of my favorite songs on the DVD. DMB definitely needs to put this on a CD. :)

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite dmb songs (just an itty bitty song says Dave) I really think it's amazing and especially on the Gorge DVD..Out of the 11 times I've seen him I have yet to hear this song :( the meaning is right out there unlike many of his other songs

    General CommentThis song will be played at my wedding or funeral...whichever comes first...and if you know me, you know that it won't be the first one! LOL.....This song is all about how the love of another person can set you free...give you everything you need...and in return you can only hope you give something like that back to the other person..*sigh*

    General CommentThis is an incredible song...and you guys are right, the Gorge is amazing...but more amazing if you're there (living in eastern WA has its perks!) because everyone is silent...you're down in a river gorge, in dave's favorite place to play, with 20,000 dave fans around you, and the sound is amazing with just him and his guitar, the lights and fog make an amazing scene...its a show every dave fan must see in his or her lifetime
