don’t give up on me lyrics – andrew peterson

the road is long that leads me home tonight.
it disappears into the distant light, my love.
don’t give up on me.

you know i love you, but i’m just a man.
i don’t always love you the best that i can.
my love, just don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
i won’t give up on you.

got all these letters that i never did write.
all this affection i kept inside my heart.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
don’t give up on me.
i won’t give up on you.

you were there when i shook my fist at the sky.
you were there when i fell to the earth and cried.
do you remember how it felt just like we died and rose again?

and the storm inside was raging.
it was howling like the wind at the pentecost,
and his love was teaching us a language we thought was lost.

i have felt the holy fire of love,
been burned by the holy fire of love.
made clean by the holy fire of love.

i walked beside you in the canyon flames,
deep as an ocean and hot as a thousand suns.
we barely survived.

but now i wake up in a golden dream:
angel voices in the rooms where the children run,
all covered in light.

don’t give up on me. –(i felt the fire of love)
don’t give up on me. –(i felt the fire of love)
don’t give up on me.
i won’t give up on you. –(i felt the fire of love)

don’t give up on me. –(i felt the fire of love)
i’m beggin’ you please
don’t give up on me.
i won’t give up on you.
