Lyrics

If you ever wondered
Does your life have meaning
Well, let me tell you this
If you think about it
You deserve the credit
For everything I did

You gave me a sense of purpose
You showed me your guiding light
I was lost with no direction
'Til you set me right

I was so impatient
Looking for the answers
I showed you disrespect
Now I see the wisdom
In what you taught me
I'm glad to recollect

You gave me a sense of purpose
You showed me your guiding light
I was lost with no direction
'Til you set me right

There's one more thing to tell you
And that is that I love you

You gave me a sense of purpose
You showed me your guiding light
I was lost with no direction
'Til you set me right
You were lost
