Live in hope of love and wait to die
Sadness all around us makes for crying
Feelings that once meant so much
Are left to dry and turn to dust, and ashes
We learn to wheel and deal and say goodbye
Madness all around us makes for dyin'
Young deceivers soon turn old
Are left to die amongst their gold and cashes
Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
We drive a million miles to see the sun
Hoping we are not too late for saving
The Lord will smile on you today
Give you love that you can trade
For matches, TVs, and movie stars
And driving cars is catching
Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time (give it up)
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]:
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up).
