"Everything I Own" as written by and David Gates....
You sheltered me from harm.
You kept me warm.
You kept me warm.

You gave my life to me.
You set me free.
You set me free.

The finest years I ever knew.
Were all the ones I spent with you.

I would give anything I own. Give up my life and my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own, just to have you back again.

You taught me how to love.
And what it's of, what it's of.

You never said too much but still you showed the way.
And so I knew, from watching you.

Nobody else can ever know.
The part of me that can't let go.

I would give anything I own. Give up my life and my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own, just to have you back again.
Just to touch you once again.

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'll never hear the words you have to say.

I would give anything I own. Give up my life and my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own, just to have you back again.

Everything I own. My life, my heart, my home.
I'd give everything I own. My life, my heart, my home.

Every little thing.
Just to have you back again.
Just to hold you.

    General CommentThis song seems like it was a cover of another.. hmm. There's a special someone that's left a guy's life because he "took them all for granted", and now he can't let go. It makes me so sad, because a guy special to me used to listen to this on repeat with me all the time, and now he's gone from me.

    General CommentThis is a great song though a cover...

    It is clearly about a guy who made all the wrong choices and has lost the one he loved the most. he regrets this and is ready to give up everything and anything to get her back and to be with her once again....
    this songs reduces me to tears every time I hear it....

    I can totally relate to this song as I to had someone really special in my life and have lost her due to my mistakes, and I know I wont ever get her back ever again, I have lost her forever....
