John Hiatt Give It Up

So you take what you want

Like you know what you need

And you run like a train

‘Til your mind doesn’t strain to believe

And you see what you see

And it’s thin as a wire

And it trips you up

Every time you show your naked desire

Give it up, give it up

Hasn’t got you nowhere

Live it up, live it up

There’s folks who love you back there

And if I see Sally

I’m gonna tell her you care

With that nasty old habit

And not even a dollar to spare

‘Cause she may still wanna help you

For the very last time

‘Cause she knows how it works

She knows you have to make up your own mind

Give it up, give it up

That limb is gonna break

Give it up, give it up

Just how much more can you take?

Give it up, give it up

You know you got to do your share

Give it up, give it up

Somebody loves you back there

And the nights get longer

You wish the day didn’t come

And the pounding in your head

Says you’re hell-bent on killing someone

The pain on your face

It’s like a beast in control

And it’s feelin’ like somethin’s

Been torn from that hole in your soul

Give it up, give it up

You got to do your part

Give it up, give it up

All you gotta do is start

Give it up, give it up

While there’s someone to save

Give it up, give it up

Before we’re cryin’ in someone’s grave

Give it up, give it up

Before we’re cryin’ in someone’s grave
