"Because You Loved Me" as written by and Diane Warren....
For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

    General CommentI watched Oprah today, and it was on people getting into careers that they have a passion for, and they actually had the lady who wrote this song on there. She was persuaded as child to just give up on writing songs and trying to get them heard by her mother, but with the encouragement of her father she did it, and now she has wrote over 90 top ten hits, and is the most successful female song writer of all time. She wrote this song about her father..for always believing in her.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me and it's one of my favorites besides rock.It means a lot since I thought I fell in love with the wrong person, and one year later this person said he loved me so much, so it really means a lot.

    General CommentOMG, this song is so sweet. Okay, shut up, I actually do like SOME Celine Dion...not the Titanic song though(*gags*) but this is a good song. I mean, it's sweet....it's talking about how one person changed another's life. You know, like love. She was cold and broken until he came along and gave her a whole new outlook, love does that ya know. I mean it's ultimate love, dude

    General CommentI think this song means a girl found a guy and she really loved him and he changed her life in so many ways but some where along the way he left but she will never forget what he had showed her and she wanted to tell the world how much one person could change ur life

    General CommentI am using this song to dance with my dad at my wedding...I think of it as a song to someone who really helped you grow because of their love.

    General CommentIt was part of the movie "Up Close and Personal"'s soundtrack.... and in the movie the main character loses her husband, the man that had made her into what she became. I think the movie pretty much sums up the meaning to the song.. and it's not that bad of a movie, ,a little slow at points but that happens. Great song to be using as a Father-Daughter dance at wedding raerae :-)

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who makes a girl feel like shes on top of the world, like shes worth more than his own life....that reminds me of someone special to me.Today was the worst day of my life, I have only ONE good thing in my life and i totally messed it up,my bf, saying sorry doesnt help, n if i could turn back time i would, but i cant, i cant bring down the moon or the sun or the stars to show u how much i love u i cant part mountains to show u how much i love u but what i can say is i love u more than life itself N****. You have a special place in my heart and u always will...
    I love you!
