Giving up - Silverstein

I used to make the light shine for you
The sun has left my sky
Velvet walls surround my sorrows
I've sacrificed my pride

Giving up on me
You're giving up on me
Giving up on me
You're giving up on me

I've laid myself to sleep tonight
I know you've played out everything in your mind

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me
You're giving up on me

Giving up on me
You're giving up on me
Giving up on me
You're giving up on me

I lied myself to sleep tonight
I know, you've played out every line in your mind

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me

And when you feel the pain
I'm wishing I could stay
How can I say I love you back
You never made me happy

You've laid yourself to sleep
I never said this wouldn't hurt
You gave up everything
I never said I'd give it back

I know (I know)
You'll never change
I won't be good enough for you
I know (I know)
You'll make it through
I'll never be around to see

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me

You're giving up on me [x4]
