Music At Work - Don’t Give Up (Song Lyrics)

Music At Work offers an exclusive, ongoing sneak-peek into new songs on the horizon. All song titles and lyrics are subject to change, evolve, or disappear entirely over time, but I want to share some of the beginning stages of the creative process with you in real-time. 

Here are lyrics from a brand new song with the working title “Don’t Give Up.” It’s a soulful little power-ballad, akin to “Better Tomorrow” from my 2005 Stark album in my mind, and it might even call for a another choir in the background once it’s recorded. 


Don’t Give Up 
by Gregory Douglass 

You said you need some courage 
You said you need a cure 
You said you need hand 
So close but so far  
When you call upon desire 
Your love and truth align 
You are a better man 
It’s alright, it’s all leveling  

Take a look at what you’re made of 
This is who you are 
This is who you are 
It’s nothing more than you can handle 
This is who you are 
This is who you are 

Don’t give up on yourself so easily 
Don’t give into sorrow more than you need 
Don’t just wait till it’s too late 
Don’t give up, don’t give up 

They’ve got you living for tomorrow 
But you’ve only got today 
So what’s it gonna be? 
It’s not hard  
It’s all up to your will to wake the wild 
The call that beacons the child 
From deep within the man 
It’s alright, it’s all leveling 

Take a look at what you’re made of 
This is who you are 
This is who you are 
It’s nothing more than you can handle 
This is who you are 
This is who you are 

So don’t give up on yourself so easily 
Don’t give into sorrow more than you need 
Don’t just wait till it’s too late 
Don’t give up, don’t give up
