lyrics

Give To You
Jason Paul Johnston © 2006

Don't have diamonds to give you, girl
Don't have the cash flow to buy you pearls
Don't have a career, or a corner office
And I probably never will, I must confess

Chorus:
But what I have I give you
It's only myself, I hope that will do
What I have I give you
If that is enough, I think we'll make it through...

Retirement's a long way off
What good is saving what you don't got
Maybe we're spending more than we own
Seems I never pay up to what I owe

Let's sit together, just let it all pass
Don’t fret the future, not dwell on the past
We've got today – and here we are
Kick back in the grass and stare at the stars

Bridge:
There's a quiet voice, whispering in the wind
It may be my own, but it sounds like a friend
Or maybe a father, watching for his kids
Or maybe the son, who gave all that he had....
