"Your Song" as written by Benita Marie Hill and Pamela Wolfe....
Standing in the spotlight
On such a perfect night
Knowing that your out there listening
I remember one time
When I was so afraid
Didn't think I had the courage
To stand up on this stage
Then you reached into my heart
And you found the melody
And if there ever was somebody
Who made me believe in me
It was you
It was you
It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song
Every night I pray
Before the music starts to play
That I'll do my best and I won't let you down
And for all the times I've stood here
This feeling feels brand new
And any time I doubt myself I think of you
'Cause It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song
Dreams can come true
With God's great angels like you
It was your song that made me sing
It was your voice that gave me wings
And it was your light that shined
Guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song
It was your song
It's always been your song

    General CommentWell if you go by the chorus, it sounds like a tribute to a musical inspiration...so maybe he's speaking to more than one person.

    General CommentI think that it's possible that it could be more than one person but what I got out of the song was that he's talking either about his wife, his mother or some other single individual in his life.

    General CommentI don't think the lines "it was your song that made me sing / it was your voice that gave me wings" necessarily mean an actual song. I always thought of it as a metaphor for the other person's presence in their life.

    General CommentAll of Garth Brooks songs have meaning to me. But this song was definitely for his mom. I too, saw the debut and when he dedicated it to his mother who is now deceased.

    General CommentIf you watch any of the footage from the Dublin concert, his mother comes on stage while he singing this and he begins to cry.

    General CommentI think this is about his mother, his wife (at the time, ha), his daughters, and even his fans. Truly it's a tribute to everyone who has supported him through the years.

    I love this song. It makes me cry when his mother comes on stage in the music video. So sweet.
