Give
LeAnn Rimes Lyrics


Everybody's reachin' for something
Every day pullin' and tugging
And always wantin' a little more
Holdin' on to her like an anchor
Treatin' those we love like strangers
Takin' names and keeping score
We all know, what we're really after
Somewhere along the road, we got it backwards

If you want to get love then give it
If you want to feel some forgiveness
Then you've gotta let go and do some forgiving of your own
If you want a friend then be one
A little bit of kindness, show some
You'll be surprised at how much finds it's way back home
It don't matter what it is
If you want it, give.

I been down right stubborn,
At one time or another,
And found it easier to bend.
I've had a shoulder to lean on
Been the one who got to be strong
And peace was waiting at both ends
I've felt the power, I've seen what it can do
It's seemed so simple, so simple that it's true

If you want to get love then give it
If you want to feel some forgiveness
Then you've gotta let go and do some forgiving of your own
If you want a friend then be one
A little bit of kindness, show some
You'll be surprised at how much finds it's way back home
It don't matter what it is
If you want it, give.

If you want a friend then be one
A little bit of kindness show some
You'll be surprised of how much finds it's way back home
It don't matter what it is
If you want it, give.

This has to be one of the best songs ever written and Leann performs it so wonderfully. I have always loved her voice since she was just a little girl singing songs like Sweet Dreams by patsy Kline and Amazing Grace. She has an amazing spirit and I will continue to promote her music whenever and wherever I can.

how come this video doesnt have millions of views. Unbelievable

Danni

@jO ETHI Well, you had "better be turned off" with the millions of people that do the same thing...I'd bet some of your friends and family member have done it too...you just don't know about it. And, WHY are you putting all the shame on Leann? There WAS a married Eddie in the mix as well.

Martín Carrizo I have always felt that her management team let her down. Still she is a woman who has no equal, she gives her all.

I like her singing but I have to say since she did what she did as a married woman I have been turned off. I cant help it. Dishonesty and betrayal are not positive traits, sorry.

Jessie Walthers

Martin Carrizo..I'm guessing because it's not about sex..as disgusting as that is.

Anne B.

Good question, it's an amazing video with a powerful message. I've shared it countless times on several sites. I think people should set aside personal views on an artist personal life and try to appreciate the music.
