"Don't Give Up" as written by Adam Klutinoty and Scott Christopher Stevens....
I heard you say you would love for a lifetime
Now you complain a lifetime just doesn't feel right for you
Another casualty of casual love
Another soul out of place, a heart that gave up

Why do we break the promises we make?
Are we living for ourselves?

Don't give up on love and throw it all away
Don't give up on love and let it fall away
When did it become so easy to run from your pain?
Don't give up on love and throw it all away

I heard you say you can't change a stubborn heart
I can relate 'cause that's how I feel when I talk with you

Why should it take losing everything
To realize it might be time to change?

Your restless heart won't win 'cause you take but you don't give
And you'll keep moving on until you learn what love is

    General Commentthis song is about not giving up on trying to love others, even though many times the first loves you have will not last. the first loves that happen in your life are casual, and as you love more they become more important and you cherish them more.

    i really love this song, because right around the time i started listening to this cd, i was feeling like giving up on trying to love because a girl i was in love with did not love me back, and i have to let it go.

    General CommentThis song means alot to me too. My Uncle and his wife are broke up right now who knows what will happen. But thye say in the song, "I heard you say you can't change a stubborn heart I can relate 'cause that's how I feel when I talk with you." That line is sooooo true. My uncle says that she is stubborn but I thought (who is stubborn?) I will say it agian I think we are all searching for happieness. So when we can't find it we think something in our life must be wrong. Then we look at our mariges, jobs, friends, and we begin to throw them away thinking they are what is making us unhappy. But is like in the song, "And you'll keep moving on until you learn what love is." True love will only make us happy and content with our lives. It will only come from one place and that is Jesus. That is what I think this song is trying to say.

    General CommentI was at a talk-back with the band and they talked of how this song is about Divorce. They said some close friends of the band had just split up and it was weighing on them.
