the gift lyrics – jim brickman

“the gift”
(with collin raye & susan ashton)

winter snow is falling down
children laughing all around
lights are turning on
like a fairy tale come true
sitting by the fire we made
you’re the answer when i prayed
i would find someone
and baby i found you

[chorus:]
all i want is to hold you forever
all i need is you more every day
you saved my heart
from being broken apart
you gave your love away
and i’m thankful every day
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 grey
but baby in my eyes
you’ll still be beautiful

[chorus]

[piano solo]

[chorus:]
all i want is to hold you forever
all i need is you more every day
you saved my heart
from being broken apart
you gave your love away
i can’t find the words to say
that i’m thankful everyday
for the gift
