"Give It Up Or Let Me Go" as written by and B. Raitt....
Well I told you pretty baby
Such a long time ago
If I found you with another
Well I'd walk right out your door

Woah you might call me crazy
There's one thing you should know
Oh honey if you want me to love you
Got to give it up or let me go

I know it's useless to be jealous
I couldn't tie you if I tried
When I'm thinking you're messin'
Around my back

It sure brings a pain I just can't hide
Oh baby, I've been true to you
And if I can make that sacrifice
Honey, you can do it too

Well, you come home drunk and nasty
You won't tell me where you've been
Just when things are nice and sweet
Your going back out again

Why do you want to mess up a good thing?
I'm gonna find me another man
One that wants to give me everything

Well I told you pretty baby
Such a long time ago
If I found you with another
Well, I'd walk right out the door
Woah, you might call me crazy
There's one thing you should know

Oh honey if you want me to love you
Got to give it up or let me go

Give it up or let me go

    General CommentThis is a cool song, I'm surprised noone's commented yet.

    This song reminds me of my relationship at times! :) Sometimes my boyfriend is great and we're really happy but then he just goes crazy and "tries to mess up a good thing."

    While this song is about a fairly stressful situation, the way its sung and the music with it makes it a bit lighter. It's cool, I love it.
