Air Supply: I Want To Give It All


Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see couples being separated by job. One’s partner might be in another city or country working for a living or pursuing a life-long dream and a better life. It just made me wonder how love can survive in such a trying situation. Does absence really make the heart grow fonder? And does it fill one with regret?

This reminds me of an Air Supply classic hit – “I Want To Give It All”. The song is one of the band’s less popular hits. It is a sad song about longing and regret, about wanting to sacrifice everything for love but unable to do so. It is really lonely but beautiful. I guess there is beauty in loneliness…



Here I am again
I've come to see you smile
I know you understand
I have to say again
It's only for a while

And still you're always here
Just waiting for my call
I wish I knew a way
To give more than I do
I want to give it all

Well it doesn't happen every day
But it happened to me once before
Those early years I threw away
Now I only have to hear your voice
To make me feel so sure
That your love is why I want to give it all

Don't the minutes fly
And hours just seem so few
With days apart so long
It's hard to spend my time
When I'm so far from you

And still you're always here
Just waiting for my call
I wish I knew a way
To give more than I do
I want to give it all

Well it doesn't happen every day
But it happened to me once before
Those early years I threw away
Now I only have to hear your voice
To make me feel so sure
That your love is why I want to give it all
That your love is why I want to give it all
