Reason to Be
Don Williams Lyrics

First I was love, then I came to be
I had a heart inside of me
And though my heart was working I found
Still there was something it had not found
So I went away hoping to see
Maybe I'd find what's missing in me
Knowing so well but not knowing why
If I didn't find this something I'd die
And then I came to where I had been
I knew the first was still not the end
What I had left was not what I found
Because there was you, because there I found
First I was love, then I came to be
I had a heart inside of me
And though me heart is still part of me
You gave my heart its reason to be

In the beginning he sings "First I was not", is that right? Because in the lyrics I've found it says "First I was love..."
