Songfacts®:

  • This is the third single from Christian rock band Sanctus Real's third studio album, The Face of Love.
  • The song was written to encourage the longevity of marital relationships. Lead singer Matt Hammit explained: "We have found that 'Don't Give Up' really connects with people of all ages and backgrounds that are struggling with relationships, jobs and just the pursuit of everyday life. The song was inspired by close friends of ours that made difficult decisions to end their marriages. I'm not here to judge those decisions, but as a band we want to be a voice for lasting love and commitment in a world where breaking vows is as common as taking them."
