Lyrics

VERSE 1
I can't say I ever met you
But it seems I know you well
A child of God, you walked among us
You left this world with no farewell
Even in your darkest hours
You found a way to shine your light
When you drew your final breath
You started helping me find mine

CHORUS 1
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
That I got a 2nd chance
To try and be the best I can
Cause you gave me the gift

VERSE 2
I drop a pebble down the wishing well
Circles ripple to the walls
Reaching out to touch my brothers
Knowing someday I may fall
When I stumbled you raised the bucket
No need for me to make a wish
You were always there beside me
Just in time you gave the gift

CHORUS 2
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
I got a 2nd chance
To try and be the best I can...

BRIDGE
You're with me every step I take
As I travel life's highway
What you gave means more to me
Than words can ever say

CHORUS 3
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
I got a 2nd chance
To try and be the best I can
Cause you gave me... the gift

Fabulous song and recording. Outstanding vocal performance. Great lyrics, song structure, melody, arrangement and instrumental performances. Well done.

Very well done! I think the songwriting, arrangement, production, etc. all are very strong.
