I'm Giving Up
(©Roger Bain 1993)
I'm giving up coffee before I go to sleep
I'm giving up promises that I can never keep
I'm giving up old things for things that are new
But one thing I'm not giving up is you
One thing I'm not giving up is you

I'm giving up trying to be cool when it's hot
I'm giving up trying to be somebody I'm not
I'm giving up believing in the man in the moon
But one thing I'm not giving up is you
One thing I'm not giving up is you

My life is on trial
Maybe through denial
I will be re-de-emed

I'm giving up alcohol except for Champaign
I'm giving up pleasure that causes such pain
I'm giving up cryin' every time I feel blue
But one thing I'm not giving up is you
One thing I'm not giving up is you

I'm giving up cigarettes though I don't even smoke
I'm giving up money though I'm already broke
I'm giving up counting any higher than two
But one thing I'm not giving up is you
One thing I'm not giving up is you

I'm giving up the notion that one day I might fly
And I'm giving up thinking ‘bout the day that I die
I'm giving up waiting
For the light to turn green, or blue
But one thing I'm not giving up is you
One thing I'm not giving up is you
Cuz baby that’s the last thing that I’d ever do
