"Can't Give It Up" as written by and James M/sullivan Peterik....
Growin' up he was tagged a rebel
She was the smoke, he was the fire
They had the time of their lives together
Turning it up higher and higher
Now people talk about the two of them
And just shake their heads
It's all just a cryin' shame
He's got a heart she'll never tame
He can't give it up, never give his heart away
Can't give it up, never gonna give it away
Gets it in the night, hides it from the light of day
Ooh yeah, he's too wild to tame
He got hooked on the spotlight
Fortune and fame, one-night stands
Under the spell of the hot lights
He had it all in the palm of his hand
Now she's waitin' in the wings
And feelin' alone in the crowd
Their love is just a distant fire
He's too wild and she's too proud
He can't give it up, never give his heart away
Can't give it up, never gonna give it away
Gets it in the night, hides it from the light of day
Can't give it up, he's too wild to tame
Growin' up he was tagged a rebel
He was the smoke, she was the fire
They had the time of their lives together
Turning it up higher and higher
People talk about the two of them
And just shake their heads
It's all just a cryin' shame
He's got a heart she'll never tame
He can't give it up, he'll never give his heart away
Can't give it up, never gonna give it away
He gets it in the night, hides it from the light of day
Can't give it up, he's too wild to tame
