I Give It To You 4:30

from The Phoenix

If I had the answer to all of life’s questions,
I’d give it to you. Oh, I’d give it to you.
If I had the reason for all of my failings,
I’d give it to you. Oh, I’d give it to you.

If I had the knowledge of great kings and scholars,
a vision of love and the wisdom to choose between
what I want, and the things that I need,
Oh, I’d give it to you, Oh, I’d give it to you.

Chorus

Well, I’m just a soul on my journey to truth.
Well, I’m just a poor boy who’s losing my youth.
Trying to hold on to what I once knew
and I give it to you, Oh, I give it to you.


I know I’m not perfect,
I don’t claim to be the light in the world that can set your heart free.
And if I could love you like I know I should,
well I’d give it to you, Oh, I’d give it to you

Chorus

Now if I have hurt you, forgive me I pray.
You know I never meant things to happen this way.
Well, I’m only trying to get through today
and define my tomorrow from our yesterday.

Chorus

If I had the answer to all of life’s questions,
I’d give it to you. Oh, I’d give it to you.
If I had the reason for all of my failings,
I’d give it to you, Oh, I’d give it to you.
