I Won’t Give Up on Us

Remember late night radio song dedications? Here’s throwing back to it:

For Beck, sometimes music is the only way to express the complicated emotions. The narrative of our break-up was emotional cheating on your part; I know you’ve tried to change the story (that we weren’t “officially” together so sleeping around wasn’t cheating on me) but people aren’t dumb. They can do the math of your new relationship in correlation of ours. I forgive it anyway and I’ve taught your parents/brother to do the same: they promised me that they would learn from the past and not inflict on your new gf what they did to you/us. You’re wrong about your parents and extended family: people can change.

When I look into your eyes

It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, 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?
Well, 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, I’m still looking up.

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re 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
