Don't give up on me.

One day I was looking around iTunes and I found this song called, Don't give up on me.  It is by The Lost Trailers and on iTunes is the only place I can find the song.  I have searched high and low for it on YouTube with no luck.

I love the words to this song because they speak a truth about marriage.  One spouse is giving it their all and begging for the forgiveness and patience of the other spouse.  "Don't give up on me."  My favorite part of the song is when the singer says "You're the only one who can ever love the Devil out of me."

Just wanted to share this with anyone out there who is asking their significant other or spouse to please.... Don't give up on me.



THE PICTURES ON THE WALL

THEY DON’T SHOW IT ALL

THEY DON’T TELL THE WHOLE STORY



NOT THE UPS AND DOWNS

OR THE TURNAROUNDS

THAT IS YOU AND ME



THEY SHOW THE SMILING FACES

AND THE PRETTY PLACES

THAT WE’VE BEEN

NOT YOU’RE CRYING EYES

OR MY LYING EYES

THEY DON’T SHOW THE THING YOU SEE……

THERE’S A NEW MAN I WANT YOU TO SEE

JUST DON’T GIVE UP ON ME



YOU’VE  SEEN MY MANY STAGES

ALL THE CHANGES THAT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH

OH……. MY DAYTIME TROUBLES

MY NIGHTTIME STRUGGLES

EVERY WAR I HAVE FOUGHT'EN

YOU HAVE FOUGHT'EN TOO

THAT’S WHY I AM DOWN HERE ON MY KNEES

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME



LIKE THE SUN WON’T GIVE UP ON THE LIGHT

SEAS WON’T GIVE UP ON THE TIDE

BABY, THAT’S JUST YOU AND I

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME

BECAUSE IN MY DARKEST HOUR

YOU’RE THE ANGEL THAT I NEED

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN EVER LOVE THE DEVIL OUT OF ME

SO DON’T GIVE UP ON ME

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME

PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP ON ME



I KNOW YOU NEED A MAN THAT CAN BE STRONG

AND I’M THE ONE YOU CAN DEPEND ON… ALWAYS DEPEND ON

SO DON’T GIVE UP ON ME

LIKE THE SUN WON’T GIVE UP ON THE LIGHT

SEAS WON’T GIVE UP ON THE TIDE

BABY, THAT’S JUST YOU AND I

DON’T GIVE UP ON ME

BECAUSE IN MY DARKEST HOUR

YOU’RE THE ANGEL THAT I NEED

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN EVER LOVE THE DEVIL OUT OF ME

SO DON’T GIVE UP ON ME



THE PICTURES ON THE WALL

THEY DON’T SHOW IT ALL

THEY DON’T TELL THE WHOLE STORY

  5. Thank goodness I found this! I've been looking for days and days for this song, and listening to Pandora non-stop hoping it would have come back on with the name. Thank you so much!

  6. Ty also, my husband n I just separated a few months ago. He told me that this song was how he felt. He told me the title, but I've not heard the song yet. I've been searching for it but couldn't find it. I never can catch it playing on the radio either. So now I at least know the words so thank you for taking the time to do this. It helps me to know how he feels. It really touched my heart when I read these lyrics.:) :)
