Giving Up


I’m gonna stop kicking my self around
Swimming in a pool of pity
I’m gonna pick myself up off the ground
And get back to the nitty gritty

It’s just one step, two step
And then I’m back on my way (on my way)
Sittin’ around has just been getting me down
And that’s why I just have to say

That I’m giving up, giving up
I’ll never give up again (giving up, giving up now)
I’m giving up, giving up
And hanging on ’til the end (giving up, giving up)

I’m gonna keep working with what I’ve got
Wait until the clouds start breaking
Instead of sitting and wishing for a better lot
Than the one already in the making

It’s just one step, two step
And strength enough for today (for today)
Working it out instead of fretting about
It’s gonna help to keep me on my way

Lord,

When it gets to hard to take it and I don’t think I can make it any longer
That’s when I decide that I’m gonna take another stride and ask the Lord to give
me strength to hold on

Whoa…
Giving on up (giving up, giving on up)
I’ll never give up again (giving up, giving up now)
I said I’m giving up (giving up, giving on up)
(giving up, giving up)
Well, I’m giving up, I’m giving up (giving up, giving on up)
I’m giving up (giving up, giving up now)
Well, I know that it sounds so simple (giving up, giving on up)
But it’s up to me (giving up, giving up)
(giving up, giving on up)
(I’m giving up, giving up now)
Well, I know when it’s through (giving up, giving on up)
Your going to see me through it again (giving up, giving up)
I’m gonna pick myself up (giving up, giving on up)
(I’m giving up, giving up now)
Giving up, giving up (giving up, giving on up) (fade)
