  • I was so lost, didn't know what to do with myself,
    I was my own worst enemy, I was lost and oh I needed help,
    Then you came along, and saw what state I was in,
    You picked me up, when I was down,
    Showed me how to live again.

    I say thank you, for pulling me through,
    I'm a lucky man,
    I didn't know what life was
    But now I understand,

    This is precious love, its precious love
    No I can't let it go,
    This is precious love, and its teaching me,
    Everything I need to know,
    This is precious love, oh its precious love
    No I can't get enough,
    Oh I'm down on my knees begging you please,
    To gimme more of that stuff.

    Love, love, love, love, love, precious love
    Oh its love, love, love, love, love, precious love

    Oh I got so distracted,
    By people all around, whispering sweet nothings,
    Filling my head with doubt,
    So I gave up, it didn't take long for me to see
    The one thing that I was missing, was standing in front of me.

    Took you for granted, thought the grass,
    As greener on the other side.
    I was wrong, and its taken so long
    For me to finally realize.

    This is precious love, its precious love
    No I can't let it go,
    This is precious love, and its teaching me,
    Everything I need to know,
    Oh this is precious love, oh its precious love
    No I can't get enough,
    Oh I'm down on my knees begging you please,
    To gimme more of that stuff.

    I say a prayer and send it to you,
    That my heart will always be true
    Life won't be the same without you
    I say thank you, mmmm,
    I'm a lucky man,
    I didn't know what life was
    But now I understand,

    Oh this is love, love, love, love, love precious love
    This is precious love, and its teaching me,
    To be a better man,
    This is precious love, oh its precious love
    No I can't get enough,
    Oh I'm down on my knees, it's there that I see
    You must be from heaven above,

    Yeah its love, love, love, love, love, precious love Writer/s: JAMES MORRISON, JOHN SHANKS
