"I Got You" as written by Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Troy Verges and Will Rambeaux....
Back when all my little goals seemed so important
Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion
Heaven was a place still in space not in motion
But soon

I got you
I got everything
I've got you
I don't need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I've got you

We went walking through the hills
Tryin' to pretend that we both know
Maybe if we save up
We can build a little home
But then the hell storm came and yelled,
"You need to let go, you've got no control
No"

I got you
I got everything
I've got you
I don't need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I've got you

This weight's too much alone
Some days I can't hold it at all
You take it on for me
When tomorrow's too much
I'll carry it all, I got you

And when tomorrow's too much
I'll carry it all I got you

I got you
I got everything
I've got you
I don't need nothing
More than you
I got everything
I've got you

    General CommentBeautiful song...I think the word "hell" in the 3rd verse should have said "hailstorm" instead

    General CommentI watched an interview with jack johnson where he discussed the meaning of this song. He said he first thought of it when he was travelling with his wife, Kim, and their minivan had broken down and there was a hailstorm - as mentioned in the song - and they realised they didn't need anything apart from eachother to have a nice time!
