Giving Up

Written by

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 win, chase you with a rolling pin
well what if i do

i am giving up on making passes and
i am giving up on half empty glasses and
i am giving up on greener grasses
i am giving up

what if our baby comes home after nine
what it your eyes close before mine
what if you lose yourself sometimes
then i'll be the one to find you
safe in my heart

i am giving up on making passes and
i am giving up on half empty glasses and
i am giving up on greener grasses
i am giving up

i am giving up
i am giving up
i am giving up on greener grasses

i am giving up for you
i am giving up for you
i am giving up
