I Made You For Me

I hung the sun, I hung the moon, I gave the stars their place
I made the planets every one, then made them move through space
I made the clouds, the hail, the rain, the softly falling snow
Only I could ever love you, and more than you could know

The mighty oceans rise and fall, the waves come tumbling in
The beauty of the robin's song, it soothes you from within
The gentle breezes rustling through the changing Autumn leaves
Don't you hear them calling you, they're drawing you to me

Chorus
Over and o'er again my heart calls out to you
Wanting you to spend some time with me
Closer than any friend that there could ever be
I made everything for you, but I made you for me

I made the light, I made the dark, I made the calm and storm
I made the breeze that keeps you cool, and fire to keep you warm
I made the trees that give you food, and trees that give you shade
There is nothing in this world that I have not made

I made the mountains strong and tall, I made the valleys low
I made you heart to think of me, I'm everywhere you go
The bond you have with those around you - yes, I made that too
You are everything to me, so I do this for you

Chorus
Over and o'er again my heart calls out to you
Wanting you to spend some time with me
Closer than any friend that there could ever be
I made everything for you, but I made you for me

I made the scents that fill the air, I made the morning dew
And when the evening shadows fall, you know I made those too
Though I could go on and on, I think you understand
Nothing in this world today was made without my hand

Chorus
Over and o'er again my heart calls out to you
Wanting you to spend some time with me
Closer than any friend that there could ever be
I made everything for you, but I made you for me
