Everything I Own – Bread

What do you think?

(Buena Park CA)

Used this for my father’s slideshow at funeral. This song is appropriate for a parent or someone one looks up to and learned things from.

Lyrics

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, 
We’re all the years I had with you 

And I will give everything I own, 
I’ll give my life, my heart, my home 
I will give everything I own 
Just to have you back again. 

You taught me how to love, 
What its all, all above 
You never said too much 
But still you showed the way 
In my new, I’m watching you 
Nobody else will ever know 
The part of me that can’t let go 

 

I will give anything I own 
I’ll give up my life, my heart, my home 
I will give everything I own 
Just to have you back 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 don’t hear the words you long to say 

I would give anything I own, 
I’ll give up my life, my heart, my home, 
I will give everthing I own 
Just to have you back again 
Just to touch you once again
