    Lyrics »

You're tired of fighting, you want some love
You tell me maybe parting is all that's left for us
What do you want from me, ask anything
I'll give it all to you, just don't let it end

Chorus:
Stay another night, help me get it right
Say the word, don't give it up baby
Take another shot and keep the fire hot
Say the word, don't give it up baby, no, don't give it up

I need you more than ever, don't turn away
I swear I can make it better, I'll never hurt you no never again
It was wrong to be so cruel, but I'm gonna change
You'll feel love through and through, every single day

(Chorus)

Bridge:
I just want us both back together
Coming home to your smile every night
Can't you see I'm gonna need you forever
Show me the way to make it alright

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

I'll be true to you, do what you want me to
Say the word, don't give it up baby
And I don't want you gone, I want to carry on
Say the word, don't give it up baby
Don't give it up baby
Don't give it up baby
