I guess I should stop drinkin'
They're closin down the bar
I missed my bus to nowhere
So now I'm standin' in the dark
I think it might be tuesday
By now you're getting dressed for work
And I wish I could come home to you
I hope by now you've found someone to treat you just how you deserve

(Chorus)
And I sing I don't wanna give, I don't wanna give,
I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up

I swear to god I'm freezin'
But it's a July afternoon
I search the sky for reasons
But every painted cloud I've ever seen still makes me think of you
And the second hand seems restless
Cause it's been movin' awful slow
And I'm all out of useful questions
And I've got no explanation why I ever let you go

Chorus x 2

This cocaine makes me anxious
And all this liquor makes me sad
I don't sleep much in the evenings
So I spend my afternoons in bed
I wish you could forgive me
I wish that you would take me back
Cause by myself I'm broken
And you're the only thing I ever loved that really loved me back

So I don't wanna give, I don't wanna give,
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up
And I sing I don't wanna give, I don't wanna give,
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up
Well I don't wanna give you up
