Givin' up is hard to do
When you really love someone
Givin' up is hard to do
When you still depend upon

His warm and tender touch
His kiss and his caress
That used to mean so much
And bring you happiness

(Givin' up) Oh, Lord, is hard to do
I try, but it's just no use
(Givin' up) Whoa, Lord, it's hard to do
I tried, but I kept recluse

The light of hope burns dim
But in my heart I pray
My love, my love, my love and faith in him
Will bring him back someday

(Givin' up)
But it's just no use
(Givin' up)
No, I can't break loose

Whether he knows or not
He really needs me too
Oh, Lord, 1 oh, Lord, oh, Lord, he's all I've got
And giving up

Is so hard to do (Givin' up)
Oh, yes, it is (Givin' up)
Is so hard to do (Givin' up)
Oh, yes, it is (Givin' up)

I just can't break loose (Givin' up)
No, no, no (Givin' up)
I just can't break loose (Givin' up)
No, no, no, no (Givin' up), hey, hey, hey
