Gave It All Away

Album: Brothers (2010)
Charted: 9
  • I, I will learn to live before I die
    Will learn to love and learn to try
    Not to give it all away (give it all away)
    She, she may be
    The one that’s meant for me
    Or for the man that I used to be (used to be)
    Til’ I gave it all away (gave it all away, gave it all away)

    Why 'hy 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
    I showed you love, you wanted more re re
    But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

    You taught me to see the better truth
    About yourself but about me too (about me too)
    I was stupid over you
    What could I do

    Why hy' 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
    I showed you love, you wanted more re re
    But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

    Some people wait a lifetime for a chance like this
    I’ve waited enough
    Baby, no, I won’t let you go
    I’m sick of tears and being fierce

    (I won’t let go of you, I won’t let go of you, of you, of you)
    (I won’t let go of you, I won’t let go of you, of you, of you)

    Why hy' 'hy I lay my heart down on the floor
    I showed you love, you wanted more re re
    But I gave it all away (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry)

    There’s nothing left to take (cry 'ry 'ry 'ry cry 'ry 'ry 'ry 'ry)
