"This Gift" as written by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova....
This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is waiting to be found

Your heart's in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require leaving
This gift will fall right in your hand
Just try to understand

If you long enough
And you don't give up
If you're strong enough
And you don't give up
And you

You'll be no harbor to the sorrow
Just let it go.

Don't hang your head in sorrow
Don't give up just before you win
Don't wait around for tomorrow
Open up your arms and let it in

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Just you believe it now

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Your heart's in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require believing
These things just fall right in your hand
Just try to understand

If you long enough
And you don't give up
If you're strong enough
And you don't give up [x2]

    General CommentWhat I think this song means to me as the songs name is The Gift I take it as the Gift of being able to open up your Heart to many things Faith, Hope, Love, Etc every emotion possible that you're able to feel that let's you know your a human being not only emotions but also situations even if you like them or not just being able to say to yourself I went thru that and I'm still here standing without any negativity towards the world hence The Gift that you have in believing in something beyond yourself. Hope you guys understood what i was trying to say cause I doubt this could b considered to be a song about lovers it's more about ones inner self. Such a great song

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song. It's talking about the sort of thing that often happens in life where something comes into your life unexpectedly and changes everything. It's saying that you need to keep your faith and open yourself up in order to receive those gifts from life.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I was going through a divorce. My ex was a cheating narcissist. Didn't miss him at all. But having my kids half the week leave me was devastating. I went into a dark dark place. Even quit listening to music. But before that And after it was a song of hope. That you just gotta hold on. Especially the line about sorrow. Just let it go. I kind of thought of God as
    My gift then and
    My faith. Then I met my future husband and he was everything I prayed to God I needed. He played the song for me on the jukebox on our first date. The song eventually reminded me of him too. Some things are made of better stuff. WS gonna read the song lyrics to him at our wedding but minister forgot. It will always hold a special place in my heart. It is a song that has moved me so much and helped me through the hardest time of my life.
