[Jason mraz]
When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky

Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make

Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts we got Yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end you're still my friend, at least we did intend for us to work
We didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am.

I won't give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up...

I won't give up on us
(No I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough, He knows
(I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn
(We are alive, We are loved)
God knows we're worth it
(And were worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up...

    For me this song is about staying with my husband and trying to mend our marriage after he broke our vows. We had to learn how to bend, without the world caving in; I have resisted my initial reaction to kick him out and decided to stay together and try to dig deep together to find where the marriage broke down. He is going to counselling and I know it will make us stronger in the end, we will have a beautiful love to show for it. We've got a lot at stake; our children, our family, our marriage. 'cause even the stars they burn; everyone makes mistakes.

    Reminds me of my relationship with my best friend and boyfriemd. We have both grown a lot and over come so much together, both had to deal with very hard patches in our seperate lives and together. He still tends to pull away when he starts to get stressed and overwhelmed, but just like jason says in his song, i wait for him when he needs his space, i have always been here when he was ready to come back and he has come back much stronger after each time he pulled away. We have learned so much about ourselves in the process of opening up to eachother and i just want to do more for him if he will let me in and come back one more time. I won't give up on us even though it has been hard and will always take some work, but he has rightfully earned all of my heart and soul and all of me, he just needs to know that we can work through everything and still be so happy together.

    Hello Destiny, I viewed your comment. Your comment is really good. Both you and Carson said the right things. This song is telling us that we should not abandon our love. It tells us that when two people are in love they should have faith with each other, give all their love, to be patient, and to not walk away whenever there is a problem. It's encouraging us to remain faithful and to be true to our word. I also agree with your meaning about true love. Personality and maturity level is very important. Also, true love is knowing that both of you are made for each other and your love for each other will stand the test of time. Good wishes for both of you.

    For me, this helps me to grow up more efficiently and more inspired. Even the girl I love more is no more my mine for now, a very stupid but I should give up her, yes I give up her for a big reason but when I accomplish my dreams, may I ask God to had another chance again. Coz I don't want to loss you. Because your the only lady who caught my heart.
