Blake Shelton – God Gave Me You lyrics
[Blake Shelton - Verse 1]
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 goes through
And I need you

[Chorus]
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


[Blake Shelton - Verse 2]
There's more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
I'll be the flattered fool
And I need you

[Chorus]
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

[Bridge]
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 pray we never undo

[Chorus - Outro]
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
Gave me you

    This song is about well, whether its two teens getting to know each other for the first time like in the video or a husbund and wife, no matter who you are god in a sense is gonna give you at some point in your life somebody to hold onto, someone who will always be there for you no matter what, and somebody you'll never want to leave behind, and for me to be able to relate its one of my best friends.

    This song is a true description of love. Whether it be the love of a significant other, a child, a friend or family member, a pet. Or simply loving yourself, this song defines it perfectly. That person (or pet) is the one person you can turn to when you need a shoulder to lean on, or someone to share your laughs with. They accept you for who you are, and you accept them :)

    God gave me you means that you should never take life for granted or the people in your life you never know when your last day might be let alone theirs. So cherish each day and moment as they come and love everyone so that you never have to look back on what you should've done while they were here. And to be thankful if you have that special someone in your life who support and loves you no matter what your ups and downs are.

    I used to be able to do very physical labor in the work place and I lost my job almost 2 years ago from a work injury and have some physical restrictions, I have good days and bad. My better half and myself are getting married next year and he has been with me thru the neck surgery, shoulder surgery, the mass depression and he is my inspiration and when I had those days of doubt he was there thru it all! This song is my dedication to my future husband because god gave me you!

    God gave me someone who gave me back the hope and the love I had lost in life. Just when I thought I could never be truly happy and was ready to settle for what life has given me, god gave me a man that gave me back the hope and the love that I thought I would never have again. I am truly happy. Thank you so much for "god gave me you". :)
