"I Have You To Thank" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
Whenever I see you I need more
And want you to stay 'til the end
One look at that smile and I'm all yours
Will you just smile at me again

I have you to thank for making me so
So hard to please because you treated me so
Good that no one else could hold your make-up
Because of you girl I never want to break up

The difference I'm feeling in my heart
Is the difference of loving or not
And under the stars and moon and sun
Is the perfect becoming of one

I have you to thank for making me so
So hard to please because you treated me so
Good that no one else could hold your make-up
Because of you girl I never want to break up

If I told you that I loved like an ace
Then I'd be lying 'cause I've made some mistakes
But I'm trying with perfect faith
When I let you in
I began to win
And now I'm just all gold
After all I've done
And the road I've run
I want to thank you
I want to thank you

I have you to thank for making me so
So hard to please because you treated me so
Good that no one else could hold your make-up
Because of you girl I never want to break up

All I do when I think about it
Is thank you baby
Thank you baby
All I do when I think about it
Is thank you baby
I just want to thank you baby
I just want to
Thank you

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most simple songs Gavin has ever written, there's really not much of an explanation that it needs. He has found a girl that really sets a precedent for dating in his life. "I have you to thank for making me so hard to place because you treated me so good". He warns her that he has flaws, but he assures her he will do his best. He feels so good that he just thinks she deserves a thanks for it.

    General CommentI love this song. I usually like his songs like belief, stay, glass, more than anyone, and so on. But this song has a completely different feel and I still love it. I don't think Gavin could make a bad song, honestly.
