"Everything I Own" as written by and David Gates....
You sheltered me from harm,
Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me,
Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew,
Were all the years I had with you

[Chorus]
I would give anything I own,
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give anything I own,
Just to have you back again

You taught me how to laugh,
What it solved, what it solved
You never said too much,
But still you showed the way
And I knew from watching you
Nobody else could ever know,
The part of me that can't let go

[Chorus]

Is there someone you know,
You're loving them so
But taking them all for granted
You may lose them one day,
Someone takes them away
And they don't hear the words you long to say

[Chorus]

Just to touch you once again
