"Don't Give up on Me Now" as written by Ben Harper, Jason Mozersky, Jesse Ingalls and Jordan / Richardson....
Time it opens all wounds
And trust gonna put me in the tomb
The world isn't mine
The world isn't mine to save
I can't afford to lose
What you easily throw away

And I don't even know myself,
What it would take to know myself
I need to change, I don't know how
Don't give up on me now

It's not what we do, it's what we do with what we feel
Takes all you have to stare it down, and whisper "Devil, no deal."
And I don't wanna fight, don't wanna fight my father's war
You can wait your whole life
Not knowing what you're waiting for

And I don't even know myself,
What it would take to know myself
I need to change, I don't know how
Don't give up on me now, don't give up on me now
Don't give up on me now, don't give up on me now
Don't give up on me now, don't give up on me now

And I don't even know myself,
What it would take to know myself
I need to change, I don't know how
And I don't even know myself,
What it would take to know myself
I need to change, I don't know how
Don't give up on me now

    My InterpretationMy girlfriend just broke up with me so (in the moment) I can relate to this song.
    My interpretation is that you are not the center of the universe, and you can't control everyone's actions. Whoever you are in contact, try to appreciate them. Don't just do things for them that are artificial; express your love for them with feeling. Through the chorus, I think Ben is suggesting that mistakes should always be reconsidered or forgiven. I wish I could told my ex-girlfriend "don't give up on me now", but sometimes people just don't listen.
    Great song. As always Ben Harper is the shit!
