I Saved Everything

This song is by Deric Ruttan and appears on the album Deric Ruttan (2003).

In a drawer there's a key with an old wooden box
Sometimes Jesus and me, sit down and unlock another time
When you were mine

Rose petals and a letter, a piece of baby's breath
A single white feather you found the day we met
You said it came from an Angel's wings.

I saved everything that ever meant anything
Precious moments in time, I kept them all alive
These pieces of the past take me back
To the greatest love I ever knew
I saved everything but you.

In the early part of Autumn you were slippin' out of reach
I was running out of options
So I went to see the preacher and we prayed
Lord, take her chains away.

And I never stopped believin' right up till the end
I know God must have his reasons,
But nothin' makes much sense without you here...
There's only silver wings.

Cause' I saved everything, that ever meant anything
Precious moments in time, I kept them all alive
These pieces of the past take me back
To the greatest love I ever knew
I saved everything but you.

...A single white feather I found the day you left
I knew it came from an Angel's wing.
