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
Is all the years I had with you 

And I would give anything I own 
I'd give up my life, my heart, my own
And I would give anything I own
Just to have you back again 

Is there someone you know
That won't let you go
And taking it all for granted?
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And you don't hear the words they say

And I would give anything I own 
I'd give up my life, my heart, my own
I would give anything I own
Just to have you back again 
Just to talk to you words again 

If there's someone you know
That won't let you go
And taking it all for granted?
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And you don't hear the words they say

And I would give anything I own 
I'd give up my life, my heart, my own
And I would give anything I own
Just to have you back again 
Just to talk to you words again 
Just hold you once again
