    "Everything I Own"
    by Bread

    Words and Music by David Gates

    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
    Were all the years I had with you

    I would give anything I own
    Give up my life, my heart, my home
    I would give ev'rything I own
    Just to have you back again

    You taught me how to love
    What it's of, what it's of
    You never said too much
    But still you showed the way
    And I knew from watching you
    Nobody else could ever know
    The part of me that can't let go

    (Repeat chorus)

    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
    (Repeat chorus)

    Just to touch you once again
