You Were Always There Lyrics

Can't remember my first mem'ry of you you were always there
And now I know I never knew you well
But I was just a kid and you were always there
To pick me up everytime I fell.

And you always warmed a blanket to wrap around my feet
When you tucked me into bed to say my prayers
And I'll bet I never thanked you among all the other things
That I took for granted cause you were always there.

Yes, you were always there so we never took the time
For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
And we never took the time to talk of love and happiness
And life and death and heartache and pain and loneliness.

Why I don't even know if you were happy or if you could have been
Or if you could have one wish what would it be
Or what would you do differently if you could live again
And were you glad that you gave life to me.

And I'd give anything to tell you am I glad that you were born
But you'll never hear the words I've learned to say
'Cause before I got to know you died of loneliness
And they tell me I grew up and moved away.

Yes, you were always there so we never took the time
For you to tell me your dreams and me to tell you mine
There were so many things that could have been but now we'll never share
'Cause kids, don't know much and you were always there.

No kids, don't know much and you were always there...
