Crystal Gayle – You Never Gave Up On Me lyrics

For all the times you stood by me,
Through right and wrong,
For being there to catch me when I'd fall,
I love you for your faith in me,
For all the joys you've given me,
But there's one thing makes me love you most of all.
You never gave up on me when I was giving love up on you,
Every time I thought this love can't work
You stayed to see it through.
You never gave up on me when I was making
Things rough on you
And you showed me what it really means to love somebody.
And though sometimes we might not see thing eye to eye,
You've always met me more than half the way,
So for all the times I've let you down
And you could have packed your things and gone,
I love you most of all because you stayed.
And you never gave up on me
When I was given love up on you,
Never mattered who was right or wrong,
You stayed to see it through,
You never gave up on me,
When I was making things rough on you,
And you showed me what it really means to love.
There were times I just knew you,
Did not understand the moods,
All those long and sleepless nights I put us through,
But you stuck by me anyway,
Gave me love everyday
And now there's nothing,
In this world I wouldn't do for you.
Cause you never gave up on me,
When I was giving love up on you,
Every time I thought this love can't work,
You stayed to see it through,
You never gave up on me when,
I was making things rough on you,
And you showed me what it really means to love.
Cause you never gave up on me,
When I was giving love up on you,
Every time I thought this love can't work,
You stayed to see it through,
You never gave up on me when I was,
Making things rough on you,
And you showed me what it really means to love

    I haven't listened to much secular music in a long time, but I do like some of it. I have heard Crystal Gayle a lot. But the first time I heard "You Never Gave Up On Me" was a couple of weeks ago and it was just exactly what I wanted to say to my wife but didn't know what words to say. May 1972, I met Carolyn, She was it for me. At that time I was involved with a gang here in Dalton, ga. We dated for 3 years and most of it we argued I was so jealous of her I couldn't stand it. I was always accusing her of looking at some boy or something stupid like that. I always thought that her sisters or friends was trying to find someone else for her. I would go to her parents house and cause trouble because they wouldn't let me see her. We made it through the 3 years of this, we got married in June 1975. All was good for about a year or so and I started hanging out more with my friends and spending less time with her. I would stay high on drugs all the time. I would take off for several days and she wouldn't know where I was or even if I was dead or alive. I wouldn't work, I always said that it was a sin to work. I started selling drugs and was in and out of jail all the time. We separated 3 different times over a period of 7 years but I would promise her everything be change, I would straighten up my act and get a job. She would take me back and no sooner done I would go right back doing the same things over again. I would come in and start a fight with her just to leave. To me the gang I hung out with was more family to me than my real family. I would go out and get younger kids to start smoking pot so they would buy it from me. I would use them to sell it a schools for me also. Carolyn really went through a lot, but through it all she stayed true. I didn't realize the love she had for me. This song " You never gave up on me " really explanes how no matter how much hurt and wrong I done to her, the love she had for me helped her to hold on. I tell people every where that she could leave me today for the way I treated her and I couldn't blame her at all. I treated her worse than a dog. At least this has a good ending, I was arrested August 1981 for 2 felony drug charges and was facing 20 years in prison. On August 30, 1981, Mr. Mccarty came by my cell and told me that God could change my whole life. I accepted Jesus as my personal savior that day and nothing has been the same. I ended up only having to do 13 months. During that time Carolyn never missed a visiting day. After I got out we started going to church, I am a deacon and Carolyn teaches a class in our church. We have been members of Whitfield Baptist Church for 32 years now. Thank You Crystal.
