All Because Of You

This song is by Mavis Staples and appears on the album The Voice (1993).

Needin' to surrender
Needin' someone tender
Someone who would show me what to do
Knowing I was lonely
You smiled upon me
I'm alive and it's all because of you, you, you (All because of you)

All the time I wasted
Hangin' out lonely places
Lyin' was my way of gettin' by
Now my friends are long departed
And I never finish what I started
I was crippled, crawling in the dark

I believed in nothing until you took my hand
You showed me just how good your love can be
Now I feel so grateful to you for lovin' me
Now I'm complete and it's all because of you
Oh you (All because of you)

Your love keeps holdin' me together (All because of you)
I found a stronger love deep inside me (All because of you)
And if you asked me to show how much I love you
I'd give my life to show you
I'd do it all because of...

You gave me what I needed
And umm, anyone could see it
But I was passin' on and goin' fast (Passin' on and goin' fast)
You wrapped me in your sweetness
And your love started me healin'
You filled my soul with love that's gonna last

Yes, I believed in nothing until you took my hand
And I found my way and it's all because of you, oh you
(All because of you)
Your love keeps holdin' me together
I found a stronger love deep inside me
And I believe there's someone there to guide me yes
I don't need to do the things I used to no ... no, no
You showed me how to love and I thank ya (And I thank you)
I thank you, thank ya (Yes, I thank you)
You're everything I want, everything I need (All because of you)
All because of you
And if you asked me to show how much I love you
I'd give you my life all because of you ... oh yes

I'd give it, all because (You gave me what I needed)
Because of your sweetness (You gave me what I needed)
Mmm, because of your love (All because of you) (You gave me what I needed)
You showed me how to love
I went blind, I couldn't see (You gave me what I needed)
You came and threw your arms all around me (You gave me what I needed)
And you rescued me
All because of you ... hey
