What If I Gave Everything
Am    G    F      G
Am    G    C

[Verse 1]
Am             G                  F          G
All my life I longed to be a hero.
    Am                G                  F
My sword raised high, running to the battle.
                      Am        G                     F            G
I was going to take giants down, be a man you would write about.
Am                        G             C
Deep in my chest is the heart of a warrior

[Chorus]
                     Am          F     C
So why am I still standing here?
G               Am         F       C 
Why am I still holding back from You?
    G               Am        F      C
I hear You call me out into deeper waters,
    G                 Am         F      C
but I settle on the shallow end.
                    Am         F        C
So why am I still standing here.

[Verse 2]
      Am                  G             F
So afraid what it might cost to follow You.
     G       Am               G                 F
I'd walk by faith if I could get these feet to move.
    G                Am           G                      F               G
But I don't want to live that way, I don't want to look back someday
      Am               G                 F
on a life that never stepped across the line.

[Chorus 2]
                     Am          F     C
So why am I still standing here?
G               Am         F       C 
Why am I still holding back from You?
        G          Am             F        C
You've given me a faith that can move a mountain,
     G                Am                F         C
but I'm still playing in the sand,
  G              Am               F         C
building little kingdoms that'll never stand.
   G                Am       F      C
I hear You call me out into deeper waters,
       G              Am         F  C
but I settle on the shallow end.

Am    G    C
                  Am          G    F
I'm so tired of standing here.
               Am     G       F
What if I gave everything to You?

[Chorus 3]
               Am           F     C
What if I gave everything?
  G                Am      F         C
What if I stopped holding back from You?
          G               Am        F      C
Starting now I'm stepping out onto deeper waters.
               Am           F     C
What if I gave everything?
  G                Am      F         C
What if I stopped holding back from You?
          G               Am        F      C
Starting now I'm stepping out onto deeper waters.
   G                Am        F        C
I want to see some mountains move.

Am    G    F
 G            Am           G    F
Ready to give everything.
                 Am G    C
Say goodbye to standing here.

About the artist behind What If I Gave Everything:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
