Song Description

One of the most natural things we are capable of is love. When we get a little older and more experienced, sometimes we forget how natural and easy it is to love. With so many marriages ending in divorce, or couples breaking up, the children are the ones who suffer the most, especially if one or both parents do not show any compassion or love to their ex. This song is a gentle, simple reminder that we are to love one another, especially for the sake and sanity of our children. I did not write this song to be loved by everyone. If you don't have children, this may not have any meaning to you. The Greatest Gift is a song to help open a door into the heart of a parent who has stopped loving. I kept the lyrics and melody easy to understand, especially those people who are a little older. I hope it touches your heart, as it did mine.

Story Behind the Song

That is a long story in itself, and I will tell you when we are sitting around the bar at an ASCAP Conference.

Lyrics

Verse 1

I WAS JUST A BOY, AND YOU WERE A PRECIOUS GIRL
SINCE THE DAY WE MET, WE KNEW THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING MORE
AND WHEN MY LOVE FELT RIGHT, I ASKED YOU TO BE MY WIFE,
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD, FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

Verse 2

WHEN OUR BABIES CAME, IT WOKE A NEW KIND OF LOVE,
SOMETHING IN OUR HEARTS, CHANGED US FOREVERMORE
IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WE'VE GROWN SO FAR APART,
FORGETTING THAT LIFES BEST, WHEN WE CONNECT OUR HEARTS

CHORUS

THEN ONE DAY ON HER BIRTHDAY, MY BABY GIRL LOOKED UP AT ME,
AND SHE SAID DADDY, THERE'S ONE THING YOU CAN GET FOR ME
THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE YOUR LITTLE GIRL
IS TO LOVE HER MOMMY SO,
SO OPEN UP YOUR HEART TO THIS, TREMENDOUS GIFT FOR ME,
OPEN UP YOUR HEART TO THIS THE GREATEST GIFT OF LOVE.

SOLO

CHORUS

SO MY SON SAW HIS MAMA AND SAID, THERE'S SOMETHING HE NEEDS HER TO DO
TODAYS THE DAY YOU CAN MAKE ALL MY DREAMS, ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE
THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE TO YOUR SON IS TO LOVE HIS DADDY SO,
SO OPEN UP YOUR HEART TO THIS TREMENDOUS GIFT FOR ME,
OPEN UP YOUR HEART TO THE GREATEST GIFT OF LOVE.
