You Gave Your Life For Me
(Rewrite)


original lyrics, Jewel: You Were Meant For Me

I hear the clock, it's six a.m.
I feel so far from where I've been
Got my eggs and my pancakes too
Got my maple syrup, everything but you.
Break the yolks, make a smiley face
I kinda like it in my brand new place
I wipe the spots off the mirror
Don't leave the keys in the door
Never put wet towels on the floor anymore' cause
Dreams last so long
even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.
Called my momma, she was out for a walk
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk
Picked up a paper, it was more bad news
More hearts being broken or people being used
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
Saw a movie it just wasn't the same
'Cause it was happy and I was sad
It made me miss you oh so bad
Dreams last so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.
Go about my business, I'm doin fine
Besides what would I say if I had you on the line
Same old story, not much to say
Hearts are broken, everyday.
Brush my teeth and put the cap back on
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
I pick a book up. Turn the sheets down.
Take a deep breath and a good look around
Put on my pjs and hop into bed
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
I try and tell myself it'll be all right
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight
Dreams last so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

I fear the walk, I'm all alone
I fear my soulmate may never be known
I'm off my legs and down on the floor
My daily staple moment, lift it all and more
I ask for guidance and little luck
Little did I know, the chords that you struck
The man I see there in the mirror
Wants to leave the man I am
I let go of everything and jump into your arms

CHORUS:
Thank you Jesus, for never being gone
Somehow, you love me
Someday I will see, you gave your life for me
So I'll give my life to you

You are my father and with you I must walk
You know all of my feelings, so I might as well talk
So I bow to my saviour, the King of the Jews
I don't fit in that group, but He's my King too
You wrote my name in the book of life
I saw it happen, I just didn't know why
Cause I'm a sinner, I made you sad
I'm sorry I hurt you so bad

They go about their business, they're doing fine
Maybe, that's what they say, that's how it is in their mind
Old old story, never to change
Hearts are mended every day

I lost my grip and fell back to myself
I walk alone, then I'm walking in filth
I pick up your book, kneel back on the ground
Once again lost, but once again found

I know that my ways only leave me dead
You are alive, like the prophecy said
I die and into the arms that love me
I trust and close my eyes, then I will see

You gave your life for me, so I'll give my life for you
