if i gave you my heart lyrics – ocean colour scene

if i gave you my heart
where would you be
would it mean nothing
if not for me

if i gave you my eyes
what would they see
would they see nothing
if not for me

but i gave you my hand and my sign and my soul on the earth
and i gave up on truth when i heard about the words
i lived out of love when i gave it away
and i sold off my soul when there’s no one to pay

if i gave you my hand
what would it write
would it say nothing
or say it’s alright

if i gave you my arms
would they hold you tight
first blood (? ) in morning
or bid you goodnight

and i gave you my strength and my worth and i gave you my gift
and i moved on the first and i left us to drift
and i reap from the soil and i build hopes from wood
it’s a new better life and we have to ensure

and i gave you my dream of the world and you stole the key
you sang to the wind in the whole? sea
and i feel my weight and i guard my soul
and i found my beliefs when i found my control
i gave you my hand and my soul on the earth
and i gave up on the truth when i heard about the words
so i lived out of love when i gave it away
and i sold off my soul when there’s no one to pay

———————————————————
if i gave you my heart where would you be,
would it mean nothing if not for me?
if i gave you my eyes what would they see,
would they see nothing if not for me?

but i gave you my hand and my sign,
and my soul on the earth,
and i gave up on truth,
when i heard about the worst

so i lived out of love
when i gave it away
and i sold off my soul
when there was no-one to pay

if i gave you my hand what would it write
would it say nothing or say it’s alright
if i gave you my arms would they hold you tight
first light of morning or bid you goodnight

and i gave you my strength and my worth
and i gave you my gift
and i moved on the first
and i left us to drift

and i’ll reap from the soil
and i’ll build home from wood
it’s a new better life
and we have 2 and should

and i gave you my dream of the world
and we stood on the quay
and we sang to the wind
and the whole darkening sea

and i feel my weight
and i guard my soul
and i found my beliefs
when i found my control

i gave you my hand
and my soul on the earth
and i gave up on truth
when i heard about the worst

so i lived out of love
when i gave it away
and i sold off my soul
when there was no-one to pay
