It's funny how it starts, just how it all begins
You get your sights on dreams, and man a thousand different things
You are on for yourself, you're chasing cool desire
You get addicted fast, but man you're playin' with fire

Then there's a day that comes to you
When you get all you want, but there's a space inside that's still as empty as it was
'Till an angel comes your way and man she's fallin fast
You know she's so in need but she is to afraid to ask

So you hold on out your hands and catch her best you can
And in givin' love you feel a better man

And the gift is what you get by givin' more than you receive
And you're learnin' fast that maybe this is how you'll be happy
'Cause in takin' everything you lost, the air you need to breath
But in givin' it away, you found the precious thing you see

It's funny how she smiles, how grateful she is now.
And how that touches me deep in my heart somehow
Yet the mirror laughs at me when I forget myself.
When I complain about, this hand that I got dealt

And if I had know before, how much she would change my life
I'd sure go back in time and tell that guy ...hey man.
You can do better than this, you can answer your prayers
You can grant your own wish.

Just hold on out your hands and give the most you can
And I swear to you you'll feel a better man

And the gift is what you get by givin' more than you receive
And you're learnin' fast that maybe this is how you'll be happy
'Cause in takin' everything you lost, the air you need to breath
But in givin' it away, you found the precious thing you see

And it's better by far to do what you do now
And leave the rest to love
Just be strong in who you are
Once you start on that road
You're safe in the knowledge
That anyway you go
Will lead you home lead you home

And the gift is what you get by givin' more than you receive
And you're learnin' fast that maybe this is how you'll be happy
'Cause in takin' everything you lost, the air you need to breath
But in givin' it away, you found the precious thing you seek

So precious precious precious precious oh yeah
So precious precious precious precious oh oh (you are)
So precious precious precious precious oh yeah
So precious precious precious precious oh oh

And the gift is what you get by givin' more than you receive
And you're learnin' fast that maybe this is how you'll be happy
'Cause in takin' everything you lost, the air you need to breath
But in givin' it away, you found the precious thing, you seek
