"Give It Up" as written by and Carnie/wilson Wilson....
You can't hide it from me
Admit it, baby
'Cause I'm wise to your disguise
I've seen you love me with your eyes
Even if you think I'm a fool and I just can't tell
then you don't know me well
Would you come over here and break the ice?
It would be so nice

It's what you want when you're around me
You're a little bit shy and I feel the need
And I can tell that you're happy you found me
So give it up
Why wait around when you know that you feel it?
I look through your eyes I can see that you want somebody
It could feel so good to get into it
Give it up! Give it up! You want it, baby
Give it up! Give it up! You know you got me
Come on come on come on and give it up

I can't I can't lie to you
Now we can all tell stories so come over here and love me
Even if you think I'm a fool and I just can't tell, sorry I know you well
And I know you will
Come over here an love me

It's what you want when you're around me
You're a little bit shy and I feel the need
And I can tell that you're happy you found me
So give it up
Why wait around when you know that you feel it?
I look through your eyes I can see that you want somebody
It could feel so good to get into it
Give it up! Give it up! You want it, baby
Give it up! Give it up! You know you got me
Come on come on come on and give it up

So dream your way into my life
'Cause baby, I'll give you tonight
and bring all your pictures to life
Give it up! Give it up! Give it up!
Give it up! Give it up! Give it up
Just give it up
Give it up

Give it up! Give it up! Yeah
Give it up! Give it up!
Come on come on come on come on
Give it up! Give it up
Won't you give it up, baby, tonight?
'Cause you know you know that it's right
Now come on, let's give it up
Come on, baby
Give it up! Give it up! Yeah
Give it up! Give it up!
Give it up!
It could feel so good to get into it
It feels so good

    I joined this website just so I could comment on this song. Seriously, it's that good. To me, it's about wanting someone who's emotionally unavailable and she's trying to be tough and tell him she doesn't need him, but really she's impatient for him to get over it and be ready to be with her. Such a powerful song. 8mm is just amazing.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a loved one who is hurting themselves, especially physically- "Bandage up your arms again, no one can see the blood but you." Also, this person is hiding all their misery, and only revealing it by hurting themselves. They think that their life won't get any better, that it is hopeless and they are stuck- "cause you're so afraid, that all that you have, is all you deserve." However, they are really only living in half-life, not really trying as much as they could be. The singer sees this-"Won't you get up off your knees?", and she knows this isn't healthy, and "It's time to run," meaning it's time to try harder to improve where they are. The lines "Don't you give it up for me" show that the person is a loved one of the singer, and that she doesn't want this person to give up their misery and self harm for anyone but themselves. The singer also knows that their pain and self harm can't go on forever- "Just how long can you bleed." At the end of the song, the singer has just about given up trying to reason with this person and just gives in to their notions that their life won't get better, and "that all you have is all you deserve".

    That's just my own reaction. Feel free to offer a new one. :]
