"Gave It All Away" as written by Michael Holbrook Penniman, Jay Rifkin, Maria Louisa Mckee and Eric Rackin....
I, I will learn to live before I die
Will learn to love and learn to try
Not to give it all away (give it all away)
She, she may be
The one that’s meant for me
Or for the man that I used to be (used to be)
Til’ I gave it all away (gave it all away, gave it all away)

Why 'hy 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
I showed you love, you wanted more re re
But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

You taught me to see the better truth
About yourself but about me too (about me too)
I was stupid over you
What could I do

Why hy' 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
I showed you love, you wanted more re re
But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

Some people wait a lifetime for a chance like this
I’ve waited enough
Baby, no, I won’t let you go
I’m sick of tears and being fierce

(I won’t let go of you, I won’t let go of you, of you, of you)
(I won’t let go of you, I won’t let go of you, of you, of you)

Why hy' 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
I showed you love, you wanted more re re
But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

There’s nothing left to take (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

I gave it all away

    General CommentIt's such a beautiful song, I think it's about a guy who lost everything, but he somehow wants to move on. Lovely song.

    R.I.P Stephen...we miss you!
