"I Owe You One" as written by and Valerie Poxleitner....
What you've given me is more than I can say
?Cause I don't know the words to thank you properly
You pulled me from the grave and stood me on a hill
And when I was afraid you made me still

For the love you bring, owe you everything
For the breath you give, you're my cause to live
For everything under the sun, I owe you one

Chaos all around, explosions and fire
You took me off the ground and lifted me higher
When trouble knew my name, that was before you
Now I?ll never be the same, now that I know you

For the love you bring, owe you everything
For the breath you give, you're my cause to live
For the love you bring, owe you everything
For the breath you give, you're my cause to live
For everything under the sun, I owe you one

Oh, oh

For the love you bring, owe you everything
For the breath you give, you're my cause to live
For the love you bring, owe you everything
For the breath you give, you're my cause live
For everything under the sun, I owe you one

    General Commentwow, this song is so catchy.
    i think it's about someone always being in trouble, until they meet someone really special. and that person changed that someones life, and theyre life will never be the same and for that, the other person is thankful and "owes them one" because they made their life amazing and they wouldn't change that for the world.

    General CommentAmazing song.. but some of these lyrics are wrong :) so here are the proper ones found on Lights' myspace blog.


    What you've done for me
    Is more than I can say
    Cause I don't know the words
    To thank you properly

    You pulled me from the grave
    And stood me on a hill
    And when I was afraid
    You made me still

    For the love you bring, owe you everything
    For the breath you give, You're my cause to live
    For everything under the sun, I owe you one

    Chaos all around
    Explosions and fire
    You took me off the ground
    And lifted me higher

    When trouble knew my name
    That was before you
    I'll never be the same
    Now that I know you

    General CommentI actually asked Lights what this was about because it sounded like she was referring to God. And I was right! She said since she's a Christian this song was just trying to pay tribute to everything he's given her. (For everything under the sun, I owe you one!)

    General CommentDefinitely a song about God.

    "You pulled me from the grave" is an obvious reference to resurrection.

    "For everything under the sun, I owe you one" is obviously referring to the created order and everything that encompasses our world.

    A very inspiring and moving song indeed!

    General Comment"You pulled me from the grave" like others said is about God. This song is a praise song to Him. As Christians we are pulled from the grave by the power of Christ's sacrifice and will never taste the power of death. Before trusting in Christ's sacrifice we are all spiritually dead, but after we accept His death as what we deceive, then we are set free and have eternal life.

    General CommentI'm with everyone else probably about the man upsatirs. But it could also be about who he has given her. He gave her someone who saved her from her delinquentcy or something, and when she was in trouble they always were there to help her out.
