I guess I should stop drinking
They're closing down the bar
I missed my bus to nowhere
So now I'm standing in the dark

And I think it might be Tuesday
By now you're getting dressed for work
And I wish I could come home to you
I hope by now that you've found someone
That treats you just like you deserve

And I sing I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up

And I swear to God I'm freezing
But it's a July afternoon
And I search the sky for reasons
But every painted cloud I've ever seen
Still makes me think of you

And the second hand seems restless
'Cause it's been moving awful slow
And I'm all out of useful questions
And I ain't got no explanation for why I ever let you go

And I sing I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up

And I sing I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up

This cocaine makes me anxious
And all this liquor makes me sad
So I don't sleep much in the evenings
So I spend my afternoons in bed

I wish you could forgive me
I wish that you would take me back
'Cause by myself I'm broken
And you're the only thing I ever loved
That really loved me back

So I sing I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up

And I sing I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give
I don't wanna give you up
I don't wanna give you up

I don't wanna give you up (x5)
