about

I remember writing several songs with the same chord changes but this one had the best lyric. Desperate but real. You're not everything to me, but you are ALMOST ALL that I have .

lyrics

Almost All That I Have

One plus One
Hardly ever equals one
These Days, it seems
One plus One it equaled three
with you and me
And You pretending I was
someone else in your dream.
I guess you'll never know
just what it means to me

To have you here
I'd give you anything
But you're almost all that I have
You're almost all that I have

You took my time
I never told you
what was on my mind
I gave you rides to work
cigarettes and smiles
my precious tape of songs
you left out in the sun
I wrote them all for you
you'll never understand

To have you here
I'd give you anything
But you're almost all that I have
You're almost all that I have


Said to me, you liked
the way the breezes blew
so free and easy
over the water by the sea
so I took your advice
and I walked away
down the shore

I guess you'll never know
just what it means to me

To have you here
I'd give you anything
But you're almost all that I have
You're almost all that I have
