The Gift

  • Winter snow is falling down
    Children laughing all around
    Lights are turning on
    Like a fairy tale come true

    Sittin' by the fire we made
    You're the answer when I prayed
    I would find someone
    And, baby, I found you

    And all I want is to hold you forever
    All I need is you more everyday
    You saved my heart from being broken apart
    You gave your love away and I'm thankful everyday, for the gift

    Watching as you softly sleep
    What I'd give if I could keep
    Just this moment
    If only time stood still

    But the colors fade away
    And the years will make us gray
    But, baby, in my eyes
    You'll still be beautiful

    And all I want is to hold you forever
    All I need is you more everyday
    You saved my heart from being broken apart
    You gave your love away and I'm thankful everyday, for the gift

    And all I want is to hold you forever
    All I need is you more everyday
    You saved my heart from being broken apart
    You gave your love away I'm thankful everyday
    Can't find the words to say thank you, for the gift Writer/s: TOM DOUGLAS, JIM BRICKMAN
