"Because You Loved Me"



For all those times you stood by me


For all the truth that you made me see


For all the joy you brought to my life


For all the wrong that you made right


For every dream you made come true


For all the love I found in you


I'll be forever thankful baby


You're the one who held me up


Never let me fall


You're the one who saw me through through it all



You were my strength when I was weak


You were my voice when I couldn't speak


You were my eyes when I couldn't see


You saw the best there was in me


Lifted me up when I couldn't reach


You gave me faith 'cause you believed


I'm everything I am


Because you loved me



Ooh, baby



You gave me wings and made me fly


You touched my hand, I could touch the sky


I lost my faith, you gave it back to me


You said no star was out of reach


You stood by me and I stood tall


I had your love, I had it all


I'm grateful for each day you gave me


Maybe I don't know that much


But I know this much is true


I was blessed because I was loved by you



You were my strength when I was weak


You were my voice when I couldn't speak


You were my eyes when I couldn't see


You saw the best there was in me


Lifted me up when I couldn't reach


You gave me faith 'cause you believed


I'm everything I am


Because you loved me



You were always there for me


The tender wind that carried me


A light in the dark shining your love into my life


You've been my inspiration


Through the lies you were the truth


My world is a better place because of you



You were my strength when I was weak


You were my voice when I couldn't speak


You were my eyes when I couldn't see


You saw the best there was in me


Lifted me up when I couldn't reach


You gave me faith 'cause you believed


I'm everything I am


Because you loved me



You were my strength when I was weak


You were my voice when I couldn't speak


(My voice.)


You were my eyes when I couldn't see


You saw the best there was in me


Lifted me up when I couldn't reach


You gave me faith 'cause you believed


I'm everything I am


Because you loved me



I'm everything I am


Because you loved me
