Lyrics

The Gift Donovan Tucker/Adam Avery (c)2014

VERSE 1
I can't say I ever met you
But it seems I know you well
A child of God, you walked among us
You left this world with no farewell

Even in your darkest hours
You found a way to shine your light
When you drew your final breath
You started helping me find mine

CHORUS 1
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
That I got a second chance
To try and be a better man
'Cause you gave me the gift

Solo/fill

VERSE 2
I drop a pebble down a wishing well
Circles ripple to the walls
Reaching out to touch my brothers
Knowing someday I may fall

When I stumbled you raised the bucket
No need for me to make a wish
You were always there beside me
Just in time you gave the gift

CHORUS 2
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
That I got a second chance
To try to be a better man...

BRIDGE
You're with me every step I take
As I travel life's highway
What you gave means more to me
Than words can ever say

CHORUS 3
You gave, and now
This troubled soul can rest
I live, somehow
And I won't soon forget
When I got a second chance
To try and be a better man
'Cause you gave me... the gift

Is this a cover?

brilliant song very emotive

Song moves and leaves you anticipating the next chord.
