  • I've been a walking heartache
    I've made a mess of me
    The person that I've been lately
    Ain't who I wanna be
    But you stay here right beside me
    Watch as the storm goes through
    And I need you

    'Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
    God gave me you for the days of doubt
    For when I think I've lost my way
    There are no words here left to say, it's true
    God gave me you, gave me you

    There's more here than what were seeing
    A divine conspiracy
    That you, an angel lovely
    Could somehow fall for me
    You'll always be love's great martyr
    And I'll be the flattered fool
    And I need you, yeah

    God gave me you for the ups and downs
    God gave me you for the days of doubt
    For when I think I've lost my way
    There are no words here left to say, it's true
    God gave me you

    On my own I'm only
    Half of what I could be
    I can't do without you
    We are stitched together
    And what love has tethered
    I pray we never undo

    'Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
    God gave me you for the days of doubt
    God gave me you for the ups and downs
    God gave me you for the days of doubt
    And for when I think I've lost my way
    There are no words here left to say, it's true
    God gave me you, gave me you
    He gave me you Writer/s: DAVE BARNES
