Story Behind the Song

I Had it All is about a lost relationship and, as the saying goes, not knowing what you've got til it's gone. This one holds a special place for me as this was my first attempt at songwriting. Beginner's luck, or hidden talent?


Do you know what happened,
To the road we were travelling on?
Do you know where the signs disappeared,
And we started to go wrong?
Straight ahead was happiness,
I didn't want to settle for anything less.
But I let love's mystery of success,
Slip right through my fingers.

If I only knew what happened,
We could be right once more.
I need a chance to prove I love you,
More than I ever did before.
All I ever wanted in life,
Was to make you happy and make you my wife,
But I let the best woman in my life,
Slip right through my fingers.

I had it all,
I never knew how much I had,
And now its gone,
Life has never been so bad.
I had it all,
You and I were meant to be,
And now you're gone,
Something has died inside of me.

You know I truly love you,
With all that a man can give.
And without you here right by my side,
I don't think I can live.
You're there with every breath I take,
You're there whenever I'm awake.
But please my darling, for goodness sake,
Don't slip right through my fingers.


Darling, please believe me,
I mean every word I say.
So give me the chance to prove I love you,
With a love that grows every day.

I made the mistake of letting you go,
Without ever really letting you know,
That you're the only one I can't let go,
Slip right through my fingers.
