lyrics

That summer when we took a ferry out to see Capri
The moment when you jumped off of a cliff into the sea
The play of light upon your skin as you napped beneath a tree
Those visions really made their mark, they've stuck around with me

You gave me more than a photograph
You gave me more than a dream
You gave me more than some story that I'll share in my twilight years
You gave me more than a postcard note
Or some silly souvenir
You gave me more than a memory, love
You gave me a reason to see

That evening when my window sounded out from the pebble you threw
Your silhoetted form alighted bright by the silvery moon
I'd never had a serenader; I've never had one since
Who made me feel the way you did with each clumsy note that you picked

But you gave me more than a tone or two
And more than a melody
You gave me more than some song to whistle along a rain-soaked street
You gave me more than a forty-five
And more than an MP3
You gave me more than a memory, love
You gave me a reason to sing

A reason to leave the porch light on
And to keep the fire alive
A reason to pick myself back up
When times are getting tryin'
A reason to take this heart of mine
And lay it on the line
A reason to keep you always on my mind

But you gave me much more than all of that
Yeah more than you could believe
You gave me more than some shoulder on which in troubled times I'd lean
You gave me more than a hand to hold
Or one to take hold of me
You gave me more than a memory, love
You gave me a reason
You gave me a reason to be
You gave me a reason to be
