I've been a walking heartache
I've made a mess of me
The person that I've been lately
Ain't who I wanna be
But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm blows through
And I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you

There's more here than what we feel
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely, can somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
I'll be the flattered fool
And I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you

On my own, I'm only half of what I could be
I can't do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I could never undo

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you
Gave me you

    I went on my first date with my current fiancee the week before i found out i had breast cancer. He stood by me through 3 surgeries & all the recovery. A year later, he proposed. This man took what could have been the worst time in my life and made it a glorious journey. I have no doubt in my mind that god gave him to me.

    I was married for 33 years to the wrong person. For whatever reason, he lead me in a different direction and i found the love of my life. I now have a husband who loves me and prays for me everyday.
