Before You


I was everything I needed
I was the one to take care of me
I was never weak
I was glad each day to be free

Out of nowhere there you were
Out of nowhere my reality became fantasy
Out of nowhere I felt complete
Out of nowhere I could see

Now I am truly free
Now your soul and mine have blended
Now you are the answer to my dreams
Now today we are whole

You are everything I needed
