Survivor – Can't Give It Up lyrics

Growin'**up he was tagged a rebel She
was the smoke he, was the fire They
had the time of their lives together Turning
it up higher and higher Now
people talk about the two of them And
just shake their heads It's
all just a cryin' shame he's, got a heart she'll never tame He**

*can't give it up Never
give his heart away Can't
give it up Never
gonna give it away Gets
it in the night Hides
it from the light of day He's
too wild to tame He*

got hooked on the spotlight Fortune
and fame one-night, stands Under
the spell of the hot lights He
had it all in the palm of his hand Now
she's waitin' in the wings and feelin' alone in the crowd Their
love is just a distant fire He's,
too wild and she's too proud (

repeat)* (
repeat)** (
