Lyrics

Don't Give It Away Tucker/Newton

verse 1
Tonite I'm praying to you father
I'm so worried..about my daughter
I've tried talking..but she won't hear
Here's what I wish you'd whisper in her ear

chorus

Don't Give it away
Your precious love
The gift that comes from up above
Pure as a new snow on a winters day
Never take it for granted
And don't give it away

verse 2
I learned the hard way
When I was young
Guess I'm still payin'
For the things I've done

Wish you had told me
Way back when
Then I wouldn't have to say it all over again

Don't give it away..your precious love
The gift that comes.. from up above
Pure as a new snow..on a winters day
Never take it for granted
And don't give it away

short solo

bridge:

Once it's gone its gone for good
And your innocence is lost
Lord if you could make her listen
I know she's heed your call

chorus

Don't give it away...your precious love
The gift that comes..from up above
Pure as a new snow..on a winters day
Never take it for granted...and don't give it away
Never take it for granted.. and don't give it away
