This pressing feeling
It's gotta implode, oh
We fight the feeling
But we can't ignore
Who can show us how
When what we want is right now

Don't give it up
I heal and hide
Forgive this hurt of mine
We all have the scars
To show

Remote controlling
This total ache, oh
Internally
It wants to destroy
Who can show us what
Will become of us

Don't give it up
I heal and hide
Forgive this hurt of mine
We all have the scars
To show

Don't give it up now
Just live it up
Don't give it up
And mess it up

Know what your doing
What you came here for, oh
You want to take them
Hold them down
Who can show us love
That holds no doubt

Don't give it up (Don't you wanna)
I heal and hide
Forgive this hurt of mine
We all have the scars
To show

    General CommentThis is a great inspirational song, and it's a shame it wasn't more successful in the UK. It's about not giving up despite the odds, and despite being hurt we can still succeed.

    General CommentI love this song. I always perceived it being more specifically about that feeling when you're falling in love and it's scary. You know the other person is feeling the same and you're trying to tell them that they need to stick with it and not give up just because it's nerve-wracking and hard. It sounds like they've both been hurt before, which makes it hard to commit again.
