Give It Away Michael W. Smith
[A]She asked him for forever and a [Esus]promise that would [E]last
He said, [f#m]"Babe you know I love you, but I [D]can't commit to that."
She said, [A]Love isn't [Esus]love [E] til you give it a[G2]way."[D]
[A]A father lived in silence, saw his [Esus]boy become a [E]man
there was a [f#m]distance felt between them cause he [D]could not understand
that [A]love isn't [Esus] love [E]until you give it a[G2]way [D]You gotta
give it a[A]way
[A]As [D/A]we [A]live, moving [A]side [D/A]by [A]side
may we [A]learnD/A] to [A]give, learn to[A] sac[E/A]ri[A]fice
We can[A] entertain compassion on a [Esus]world in need of [E]care
But the [f#m]road of good intentions doesn't[D] lead to anywhere
Cause [A]love isn't[Esus] love [E]til you give it a[G2]way, [D]You gotta
give it a[A]way.
[A] Love is like a [f#m]river
Flowing [E/A]down from the giver of [D]life [D/D] [E/D] [A/D]
[A]We drink from the [f#m]water and our [E/A]thirst is no longer [D] denied
[D/D] [E/D] [A/D]
You gotta give it a[A]way
There was a [A]man who walked on water. He [Esus]came to set the people free[E]
He was the[f#m] ultimate example of what[D] love can truly be
Cause his[A] love was his [Esus]life [E] and he gave it a[G2]way,[D]
You gotta give it a[A]way.
