Give It Away
by Michael W. Smith

Album: Best of Michael W. Smith
by Michael W. Smith

She asked him for forever
And a promise that would last
He said, "Babe, you know I love you
But I can't commit to that"
She said, "Love isn't love
Till You give it away"
A father lived in silence
Saw his son become a man
There was a distance felt between them
'Cause he could not understand
That love isn't love
Till you give it away
You gotta give it away

As we live
Moving side by side
May we learn to give
(May we learn to give)
Learn to sacrifice

We can entertain compassion
For a world in need of care
But the road of good intentions
Doesn't lead to anywhere
'Cause love isn't love
Till you give it away, yeah
You gotta give it away

As we live
Moving side by side
May we learn to give
(May we learn to give)
Learn to sacrifice

Love is like a river
Flowing down from the Giver of life
We drink from the water
And our thirst is no longer denied
You gotta give it away

As we live
Moving side by side
(Moving side by side)
May we learn to give
(May, may, may we learn to give)
Learn to sacrifice

There was a man who walked on water
He came to set the people free
He was the ultimate example
Of what love can truly be
'Cause His love was His life
And He gave it away
You gotta give it away

As we live
Moving side by side
May we learn to give
(May, may we learn to give)
Learn to sacrifice

You gotta give it away

As we live
(As we live)
Moving side by side
(Moving side, moving side by side)
May we learn to give
(May we, may we learn to give)
Learn to sacrifice
(Learn to sacrifice)
