What if we stop having a ball
What if the paint chips from the wall
What if there's always cups in the sink
What if I'm not what you think
I am

What if I fall further than you
What if you dream of somebody new
What if I never let you in
Chase you with a rolling pin
Well, what if I do

'Cause I am giving up
I'm making passes
And I am giving up
I'm half empty glasses
And I am giving up
I'm greener grasses
I am giving up

What if our baby comes in after nine?
What if your eyes close before mine?
What if you lose yourself sometime?
And I'll be the one to find you
Safe in my heart?

'Cause I am giving up
I'm making passes
And I am giving up
I'm half empty glasses
And I am giving up
I'm greener grasses

I am giving
'Cause I am giving up
I am giving up
And I am giving up
I am giving up
And I am giving up
I'm greener grasses
I am giving up for you
Oh oh
I am giving up for you
Oh oh
I am giving up
