"If Time Is All I Have" as written by Francis Eg White and James Blunt....
When you wake up
Turn the radio on
And you'll hear this simple song
That I made up
That I made up for you

When you're driving
Turn the radio up
Cause I can't sing loud enough
Hard these days
To get my message through

If time is all I have
I'll waste it all on you

Each day I'll turn it back
It's what the broken-hearted do
I'm tired of talking to an empty space
Of silences keeping me awake

When you marry
And you look around
I'll be somewhere in that crowd
Torn up, that it isn't me

When you're older
And the memories fade
But I know I'll still feel the same
For as long as I live

But if time is all I have
I'll waste it all on you

Each day I'll turn it back
It's what the broken-hearted do
I'm tired of talking to an empty space
Of silences keeping me awake

Won't you say my name, one time
Please just say my name

But if time is all I have
I'll waste it all on you
Each day I'll turn it back
It's what the broken-hearted do
I'm tired of talking to an empty space
Of silences keeping me awake

If time is all I have
I'll waste it all on you

Each day I'll turn it back
It's what the broken-hearted do
I'm tired of talking to an empty space
Of silences keeping me awake

Won't you say my name
When the song is over

    General CommentThis is an amazing song sung by a genius.

    Just a couple of corrections:
    "And you'll hear this simple songs" should be "And you'll hear this simple song"
    "All these days" should be "Hard these days"
    And I believe "If time is all I had" should be "If time is all I HAVE"
    and "I'd waste it all on you" should "I'll waste it all on you"

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty obvious, but the song is so touching and emotional. His live performances of this song are almost too hard to watch because he gets choked up singing. :(
