I'll Give You All That I Got - Lyrics

The band was rehearsing in the Warehouse for a few hours. (To learn more about the Warehouse, read the blog entries from July, 2008.) This was the first time we played the song with keyboard accompaniment. I definitely wanted to capture it on tape. Three quarters of the way through the song, someone points out to Deniz that he made a mistake on the last verse he sang. I remember waving everyone on to continue to play the song. Deniz then repeated the verse correctly and the song was played through to the end, which made the song almost seven minutes long. After the song ended, you hear Deniz saying he messed up, in his own humorous way.

The lyrics to the song was written 21 years ago, and has since been lost. Because of the poor quality of the recording, it took me several hours to recreate the lyrics below. The mood created by the guitar made these lyrics fit perfectly to the song. Lawrence's guitar solo in the middle of the song was the Mystix signature. Everyone sang background on the chorus. You can really escape in this song if you just listen to the music and follow with the lyrics.

I'll Give You All That I Got

I woke up from a dream last night
Saw your lonely face
If only you can see my light
I long for your sweet embrace

Day after day I think of you

Standing by my side

I’m on my way what will I do

I remember all that you’ve done

I won’t forget you

Oh but I’ve tried
I won’t forget you

You always be mine


I saw the way you started here

With your heart that’s on the rise
Then we sat and made more tears

All I see is your scary eyes


Call you on the telephone

I’ll always feel for you

With all the chances to be my own

And I know all that is true


I won’t forget you

Oh but I’ve tried

I won’t forget you
You always be mine

Always be mine

Always be mine


Always be mine


Always


I woke up from a dream last night
And saw your lonely face

If only you can see my light
I long for your sweet embrace


Day after day I feel for you

Standing by my side

I’m on my way what will I do
I remember all that you find


I woke up from a dream last night

And saw your lonely face

If only you can see my light
I long for your sweet embrace


Time after time I think of you

Standing by my side

I’m on my way what will I do
I remember all that you’ve done

I won’t forget you
Oh but I tried

I won’t forget you

You always be mine


I won’t forget you
Oh but I’ve tried

I won’t forget you
You always be mine


I won’t forget you
Oh but I’ve tried
I won’t forget you

You always be mine


I won’t forget you
Oh but I’ve tried

I won’t forget you
You always be mine


I won’t forget you

Oh but I’ve tried

I won’t forget you
You always be mine

I won’t forget you

Oh but I’ve tried

I won’t forget you
You always be mine


I won’t forget you

Oh but I’ve tried
I won’t forget you

You always be mine
