I would give you everything I own just to have you back again



This song was uploaded on 19 Nov 2009. Today it reached 6,765,284 views.
Billboard ranked it as the No. 52 song for 1972.
Even though it was written by David Gates to his father that passed away people thought it was dedicated to a broken relationship.
It is interesting to read the comments on Youtube and how this lyrics affects people today. I ask myself how much people are willing to give to have a loved one back nowadays.

Everything I Own

Bread 1972

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.

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

You taught me how to laugh.








What a time, what a time.
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.

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

Is there someone you know,
Your 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'd give up my life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own,
Just to have you back again;
Just to touch you once again.
