Give it Up

  • We'll laugh, I tried to warm that heart
    Looking back, we were lost from the start
    All locked up in your own mind
    It's no surprise your tongue was tied
    We did bad things when we were young
    You'd smile and torture me just for fun
    When the sun went down, I replayed the past
    Knew every scene, it went by so fast

    When I have the strength enough to fight
    When the fire that burns goes out inside
    Cry for desire to change your mind
    What's left you played, it's your hardest role

    Give it up, give it up for me
    You make your move
    ?
    Give it up, it doesn't have to be
    So hard

    Twenty-four floors above the ground
    We shared the 60's silver sound
    A glass of goose, a magnetic stare
    Behind those eyes, there was nothing there

    Strange little girl, what did you do
    I could always see straight through you
    It's so pretty on the other side
    Your reflection will fool us all in time

    When I have the strength enough to fight
    When the fire that burns goes out inside
    Cry for desire to change your mind
    What's left you played, it's your hardest role

    Give it up, give it up for me
    You make your move
    ?
    Give it up, it doesn't have to be
    So hard

    And I know it won't be long
    'til I give up
    And the roles reverse, and I give you another chance
    And I'd love to try again
    Try again to warm that heart

    Give it up, give it up for me
    You make your move
    ?
    Give it up, it doesn't have to be
    So hard Writer/s: DAVID FURZE ROBERTSON, EARL RANDLE, LAVARACK MILO CORDELL, PAUL RICHARD EPWORTH
