Week Fifty-One: “I’d Give the World (and All I Own)”

I’d give the world and all I own
I’d give the world and all I own
for just one moment we have lost
for the love that we once known

I’d give the world and all I own
I’d give the world and all I own
for just one moment we have lost
for the love that we once known

The nights up here are cold
with nobody to hold
Tell me what to do
In all my years of choosing
loving and losing
never lost no one like you

Dreaming that you’re here
but knowing you’re not near
my heart is ringing red
I know you only think about
when we used to shout
and not the good times instead

One of these days I’ll write you a letter
about all that I’ve done and make you proud
and I’ll tell you everything
that I should have told you out loud

I’d give the world and all I own
I’d give the world and all I own
for just one moment we have lost
for the love that we once known

My sorrow fills the places
where I would see your face as
I lead my life alone
My future’s just as bright
as a willow tree at night
and heavy as a stone

One of these days I’ll write you a letter
about all that I’ve done and make you proud
and I’ll tell you everything
that I should have told you out loud

I’d give the world and all I own
I’d give the world and all I own
for just one moment we have lost
for the love that we once known
