L. James Tanner lyrics

Lyrics

I Gave Up On Giving Up

I'm gonna rise with the sun,

gonna rise up from my bed.

Gonna conquer the whole wide world;

I have awakened from the dead.

I gave up on giving up, a long time ago

Every morning I wake up

with the same thought in my head;

I'm not dwelling on past mistakes,

but on the future I have instead.

I gave up on giving up, a long time ago

I don't want to just be good, I want to be the best

When the whole world is yours I'll take a rest.

I used to have no purpose, but that changed when we met;

the day the last thing I quit was quitting

I gave up on giving up, a long time ago

I gave up on giving up;

What I was prone to do.

I gave up on giving up

the day I gave in to you.

I'll give it my best shot

I'll give all that I've got

so you don't give up on me.

so you don't give up on me.

I gave up on giving up, a long time ago

L. James Tanner
