Giving It Up

High tide in a homely harbour On an ocean with a golden hue We were young once in the grip of ardour We could sail away to a brighter blue No one could tell us timely That you build today of tomorrow's blues We walk in time and we don't mind running When the future hides where you know it to But you're giving it up, giving it up baby Letting you down, letting you down slowly Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show But you waited enough, waited enough honey You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow 'Cause you never know Changes that creep in quietly A stranger in familiar rooms I'm hoping I can find that feeling Some brighter light I can hold you to But you're giving it up, giving it up baby Letting you down, letting you down slowly Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show But you waited enough, waited enough honey You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow 'Cause you never know No you never know, no you never know Giving it up, giving it up baby Giving it up, giving it up baby Giving it up, giving it up baby Giving it up, giving it up baby Low tide in a lonely harbour As the ocean cuts the moon in two On a small ship clinging to each other If we hold on tight we can make it through But you're giving it up, giving it up baby Letting you down, letting you down slowly Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show But you waited enough, waited enough honey You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow 'Cause you never know No you never know, no you never know No you never know, no you never know No you never know, no you never know
