Story behind the song
I dreamed one night of playing with Bonnie Raitt and John Lee Hooker. And the chords I remembered playing with them turned into this song. The words came about as I learned more about myself and how what I did affected my relationships.
I was given the world in the palm of my hand.
Sometimes I wonder, yes try to understand.
Why I was never satisfied. Always wanting more.
I didn't know what life was about or what I was living for.
You were a gift to me but I didn't know
And the way I lived my life I almost let you go.
But you were always there waiting for me.
Giving me all your love just so tenderly.
Today things are better. I've stopped blaming you.
I look at myself and I own what I do.
Sometimes things are rough but I've learned that is life.
I still make mistakes that's how I learn what's right.
You are a gift to me and now I know.
The way to live my life.
I'll never let you go.
And I will always be there.
Waiting for you.
Giving you all my love.
Just so unconditionally.
