Lyrics

I WANT TO THANK YOU

Verse 1
You held me in the your arms
Nurtured me and moulded me
You made me who I am
For your wisdom and your faith
Your patience and your grace
Back when I didn’t give a damn

I want to thank you
I want to thank you
For your love
I want to thank you

Verse 2 
I looked into your eyes
I couldn't speak, could barely breathe
So taken by surprise
I smiled and you smiled too
‘Cause you already knew
The love instinctively inside

1st Chorus
I want to thank you
For all the things you do
Thank you for everything

For being part of you
For the love so unconditional

Right from the very start
I want to thank you

With every fibre of my heart

2nd Chorus
Thank you
For all the things you do
Thank you for everything
For simply being you
For the love so unconditional

Right from the very start
I want to thank you

From every corner of my heart

Verse 3
To you my precious one
So small, so innocent
Your journey's just begun
The whole world waits for you
And who you will become
As you grow into yourself
When all is said and done

3rd Chorus
I want to thank you
For everything you'll be
Thank you for everything

For being part of me
For the love so unconditional

From the very start
I want to thank you

From every corner of my heart

...love so unconditional
from the very start
I want to thank you
With every fragment of my heart

Thank You

Verse 2 was inspired by the overwhelming feeling of unconditional love when I held my grandson Benjamin for the first time. Verse 3 is for my grandson Patrick - I wrote this verse for him after seeing a high-tech video when he was merely a cluster of cells, too small to be seen by the human eye.
