John Hiatt – Give It Up lyrics

So you take what you want
Like you know what you need
And you run like a train
'Til your mind doesn't strain to believe

And you see what you see
And it's thin as a wire
And it trips you up
Every time you show your naked desire

Give it up, give it up
Hasn't got you nowhere
Live it up, live it up
There's folks who love you back there

And if I see Sally
I'm gonna tell her you care
With that nasty old habit
And not even a dollar to spare

'Cause she may still wanna help you
For the very last time
'Cause she knows how it works
She knows you have to make up your own mind

Give it up, give it up
That limb is gonna break
Give it up, give it up
Just how much more can you take?

Give it up, give it up
You know you got to do your share
Give it up, give it up
Somebody loves you back there

And the nights get longer
You wish the day didn't come
And the pounding in your head
Says you're hell-bent on killing someone

The pain on your face
It's like a beast in control
And it's feelin' like somethin's
Been torn from that hole in your soul

Give it up, give it up
You got to do your part
Give it up, give it up
All you gotta do is start
Give it up, give it up
While there's someone to save
Give it up, give it up
Before we're cryin' in someone's grave

Give it up, give it up
Before we're cryin' in someone's grave
