lyrics

I’m giving up giving up on you.
I’m giving up giving up on you.
I dream of you just because,
but I couldn’t break free ‘cause I already was.
I’m giving up giving up on you.

I saw you just the other day.
You know I could not look away.
I had to get some more of what I need.
And if you’re beautiful,
well, that’s not so very unusual.
There’s nothing you can do.

I’m giving up giving up on you.
I’m giving up giving up on you.
I want to be free, of course, like everybody,
and my hands aren’t tied but my fingers are crossed.
I’m giving up giving up on you.

Just be your very best each day.
Be kind to others, baby. Be the change.
Listen to your heart but run it with your brains, your pretty brains.
And if you think of me,
well, let’s just hope it’s a passing thing.
There’s nothing I can do.

And if I love you , Girl,
what business is that of yours?

I’m giving up giving up on you.
I’m giving up giving up on you.
I dream of you just because,
but I couldn’t break free ‘cause I already was.
I’m giving up giving up on you.
