Can’t Give Up the Love


words and music by Suzanne Wanvig and Rick Paul

I finally found the one that I belong with
‘Cause I’d gladly spend forever by your side
But sometimes fate has other plans
For a woman and a man
And so we have to find the strength to go on with our lives

I’ll give up hope
We’ll ever be together
And accept
It wasn’t meant to be
I’ll forget about the future we were dreaming of
I’ll walk away, set you free
But forgive me
If I can’t give up the love

I’ll never find another to replace you
There’s something in the way you touched my soul
Though we can’t go back again
I thank God for where we’ve been
And take comfort in the memories that I still have and hold

I’ll give up hope
We’ll ever be together
And accept
It wasn’t meant to be
I’ll forget about the future we were dreaming of
I’ll walk away, set you free
But forgive me
If I can’t give up the love

There are so many things still left to say
But it’s best if we don’t try
Just one last kiss
Then goodbye

I’ll give up hope
We’ll ever be together
And accept
It wasn’t meant to be
I’ll forget about the future we were dreaming of
I’ll walk away, set you free
But forgive me
If I can’t give up the love

I’ll walk away, set you free
But you’ll have to forgive me
If I can’t give up the love
