(Ba da ba ba ba da da…) x 8

I would be overstating
If I said I knew you well,
Or that I knew you at all.
When you flew through that windshield
And your life passed
Reel the reel,
Was there a bit part for me?

I made a wish for you.
Blew out the sun so it would come true.
But the sun froze along with your heart.

So give up, give up your love.
Give up, give up your love.
I promise it's not gonna kill ya
And I need ya, Lord I need ya.

(Ba da ba ba ba da da…) x 8

And when they cut out your lung
You said we could all breathe easy.
The hole swallowed your heart.
When they drilled holes in your skull
And screwed that halo to your head
Did you think you could fly?

I made a prayer for you,
Then prayed some more that it’d come true.
Don’t know 'bout God, but I believe in you.

So give up, give up your love.
Give up, give up your love.
I promise its not gonna kill ya,
And I need ya, Lord I need ya.
Though you haven’t got a lot to give up,
A good man is easy to kill. Well,
Stop talking about the weather and say you’re getting better.

(Ba da ba ba ba da da…) x 8

    I would be overstating
    If I said I knew you well
    Or that I knew you at all
