"Precious Love" as written by John Shanks and James Morrison....
I was so lost, didn't know what to do with myself,
I was my own worst enemy, I was lost and oh I needed help,
Then you came along, and saw what state I was in,
You picked me up, when I was down,
Showed me how to live again.

I say thank you, for pulling me through,
I'm a lucky man,
I didn't know what life was
But now I understand,

This is precious love, its precious love
No I can't let it go,
This is precious love, and its teaching me,
Everything I need to know,
This is precious love, oh its precious love
No I can't get enough,
Oh I'm down on my knees begging you please,
To gimme more of that stuff.

Love, love, love, love, love, precious love
Oh its love, love, love, love, love, precious love

Oh I got so distracted,
By people all around, whispering sweet nothings,
Filling my head with doubt,
So I gave up, it didn't take long for me to see
The one thing that I was missing, was standing in front of me.

Took you for granted, thought the grass,
As greener on the other side.
I was wrong, and its taken so long
For me to finally realize.

This is precious love, its precious love
No I can't let it go,
This is precious love, and its teaching me,
Everything I need to know,
Oh this is precious love, oh its precious love
No I can't get enough,
Oh I'm down on my knees begging you please,
To gimme more of that stuff.

I say a prayer and send it to you,
That my heart will always be true
Life won't be the same without you
I say thank you, mmmm,
I'm a lucky man,
I didn't know what life was
But now I understand,

Oh this is love, love, love, love, love precious love
This is precious love, and its teaching me,
To be a better man,
This is precious love, oh its precious love
No I can't get enough,
Oh I'm down on my knees, it's there that I see
You must be from heaven above,

Yeah its love, love, love, love, love, precious love

    General CommentI really like this song. I like the bluesy swing rhythm with the gospel-like background. As for the meaning, it's pretty self-explanatory if you can read the lyrics, if you can't, then I don't know how you got to this webpage.
