I was so lost
Didn't know what to do with myself
I was my own worst enemy
I was lost and know I needed help
Then you came along
And saw the state I was in
You picked me up
Where I was down
Show me how to live again

I said thank you for pulling me through
I'm a lucky man
I didn't know what life was
But I now understand

This is precious love, precious love
No I can't let it go
It's this precious love
And it's teaching me everything I need to know
This is precious love, it's precious love
No I can't get enough
Oh I'm down on my knees
Begging you please
Gimme some more of that stuff

Oh it's love love love love, precious love
Oh it's love love love love, precious love

Oh I got so distracted by people all around
Whispering sweet nothings.
Feeling my head with doubt
So I give up
It didn't take long for me to see
The one thing that I was missing
Was standing in front of me

I took you for granted
Thought the grass was greener on the other side
I was wrong and it took me so long
For me to finally realize

This is precious love, precious love
No I can't let it go
It's this precious love
And it's teaching me everything I need to know
I'ts precious love, it's precious love
No I can't get enough
Oh I'm down on my knees
Begging you please
To give me some more of that stuff

I say a prayer
I say it to you
That my heart will always be true
Love won't be the same without you

So I say thank you
I'm a lucky man
I didn't know what life was
But now I, now I understand
Understand, understand

This is love love love love, precious love
This is precious love
And it's teaching me to be a better man
This is precious love, precious love
Oh I can't get enough
Oh I'm down on my knees
Begging you please
You must be from heaven above

This I love love love love, precious love
Oh it's love love love love, precious love

Love love love love, gimme love gimme love
Love love love love, precious love
