"Don't give up" as written by and Erlend Otre Oeye....
Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
Give me an angle that I haven't tried before
A guarantee for being honestly compared
You want to live when life is achingly unfair

Don't make a move you'll look ridiculous again
You share no interest but it's easy to pretend
Don't start the action it will turn against you soon
No one is going to follow and you'll stand there like a fool

You left the people when the people left you out
Back in the suburbs you're craving for the crowd
Only minded now with defeats of yesterday
The mantra spinning in your head will keep it raised

Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
I don't think I can
Give me an angle that I haven't tried before
Not from where I stand

A guarantee for being honestly compared
Could not be found
You want to live when life is sakenly unfair
Stick around

Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up

    General Commentwhat a lovely song.
    to me its about someone who is disenchanted with society and the conformity of the people around him/her.
    it could also apply to a relationship, esp. the part about the making a move and the ignoring and such....
    oh hell i dont really know what im talking about.
    but i do love this song.

    General CommentWhy did you change the lyrics to "You want to live when life is sakenly unfair"?
    It should be "You want to live when life is achingly unfair" both times.
    This song is absolutely amazing.
