  • You set the sun, I feel your waves
    I look at the ocean, so big and brave
    Am I only a ghost?
    'Cause what I fear the most is me
    I left you on the coast for something only I can see

    What kind of world will there be
    When I wake up from this dream?
    I hear you call so far away
    Just keep me close when I'm afraid

    And don't you give up on me
    As I dive into the dark
    Slip into the endless sea
    Don't you give up on me
    Are you swimming in the stars?
    Breathing in eternity
    Don't you give up on me

    You are the moon, I feel your weight
    You tug at the ocean, you help it change
    And you keep on reminding me of a darkness only I can see

    Oh oh oh ah oh
    What kind of world will there be
    When I wake up from this dream?
    I hear you call so far away
    Just keep me close when I'm afraid

    And don't you give up on me
    As I dive into the dark
    Slip into the endless sea
    Don't you give up on me
    Are you swimming in the stars?
    Breathing in eternity
    Don't you give up on me

    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up on me now
    Don't you give up, up, up,
    Don't you give up
    Don't you give up

    And don't you give up on me
    As I dive into the dark
    Slip into the endless sea
    Don't you give up on me
    Are you swimming in the stars?
    Breathing in eternity
    Don't you give up on me
    Don't you give up on me
    Don't you give up on me
    Don't you give up on me
    Don't you give up on me Writer/s: ELISABETH CORRIN MAURUS, MARTIN JAMES F CRAFT
