  • When I look into your eyes
    It's like watching the night skies
    Or a beautiful sunrise
    There's so much they hold
    And just like them old stars
    I see that you've come so far
    To be right where you are
    How old is your soul?

    I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough
    I'm giving you all my love, I'm still looking up

    And when you're needing your space, to do some navigating
    I'll be here patiently waiting, to see what you find

    'Cause even the stars they burn
    Some even fall to the earth
    We've got a lot to learn
    God knows we're worth it
    No, I won't give up

    I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
    I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
    Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
    The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
    And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
    For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
    We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
    I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not and who I am

    I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough
    I'm giving you all my love
    I'm still looking up, still looking up

    I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
    God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
    We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
    God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

    I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough
    I'm giving you all my love, I'm still looking up
