Thanks To You - Lyrics by Richard Marx


You gave me life,
Gave me your heart
Your shoulder when i needed to cry
You gave me hope when all my hope was gone
Wings so my dreams can fly
And i haven't told you enough
Haven't been good enough, making you see

My love for you will live in my heart
Until eternity's through
I see your smile in the eyes of my child
I am who i am, mama, thanks to you

You gave me your world,
Gave me your voice
Gave me your everything
Each breath of your life
You believe when i can never have
You teach my faith to survive
And i can never do enough
Never thank you enough, for all that you are

(repeat chorus)

I know the treasure, i'm filled with grace
Whenever i see your face


And i see your smile in the eyes of my child
I am who i am, mama, thanks to you
To you......
