"DON'T GIVE UP"

Verse 1
It’s not so easy being what you know you should be.
There’s more to true love than just a kiss and a little hug.
Sometimes it takes faith to remove the rugged mountains,
To get us through the darkest hours, ’til we see the sun shine again.

Chorus 1
So don’t you give up, don’t you quit too soon.
The answer to your questions are coming to you, man.
With a little more faith in the One above,
You’ll know that there’s Someone watching,
[Watching, watching, watching,] taking care of us.

Verse 2
But we don’t always see the signs we sometimes should.
So let’s stop and take a look around before we go on.
’Cause there’s a guiding light, oh yeah, we can follow,
That will show us how to live for love today and tomorrow, yeah.

Chorus 2
Don’t you give up, don’t you quit too soon.
The answer to your questions are coming to you.
With a little more faith in the One above,
You’ll know that there’s Someone watching,
[Watching, watching, watching,] taking care of us.

Bridge
Soon we will see all the many things we never understood,
If we’ll just hold on,
Yeah, we’ll leave the bad behind and reach out for the good.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah, yeah!

Verse 3
There’s more to life than a house and a nice warm meal,
’Cause when you live for love, that’s when you know, well, uh, love is real.
Just doing little things everyday help in every way,
’Cause what we do in love counts more than all the big things we say,
What you say now.

Chorus 3
Don’t you give up, no, don’t you quit too soon.
The answer to your questions, they’re coming to you, man.
With a little more faith, yeah, in the One above,
You’ll know that there’s Someone watching,
[Watching, watching, watching,] taking care of us.

Chorus 4
[Don’t you give up,] don’t you give up, no,
[Don’t you quit too soon,] not too soon.
[The answer to your questions,]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, they’re coming to you, my friend.
[With a little more faith,] just a little more faith in the One above,
You’ll know that there’s Someone watching,
[Watching, watching, watching, watching]
It isn’t over! [Watching, watching]
Keep looking up! [Watching, watching]
Hang on! Taking care of us!-
