Ev'ry night's a lonely night since you went away
But you come back to haunt my memory
I lie awake and think of you and how it used to be
Oh my love don't give up on me.

The symbol of the moon above and living without you
I can't stand this cold reality
You alone can make me whole, our love was meant to be
Oh my love don't give up on me.

In the dying embers of the midnight hour
All these things brought me misery
In the dying embers of the midnight hour
Oh my love don't give up on me.

When you left I know I lost the better part of me
But I can't blame my troubled history
You and I were innocent, our love was meant to be
Oh my love don't give up on me.

In the dying embers of the midnight hour
All these things brought me misery
In the dying embers of the midnight hour
Oh my love don't give up on me.

Jesus came into this world so all men may be found
In the soul of all humanity
Ev'ry time I stumble on the road to Calvary
Oh my love don't give up on me.

In the dying embers of the midnight hour
All these things brought me misery
In the dying embers of the midnight hour
Oh my love don't give up on me
Oh my love don't give up on me
My sweet Lord don't give up on me.

(fade)
Oh my love don't give up on me
