Giving It Up – Explained

Lyrics by Joe & Linda

[Verse 1]
I’m giving it up now
I quit my job today
I told them I won’t stay
I told them that the world is waiting

For me to go
Beyond the places I know
Only then will I grow
I don’t wanna wait until it’s too late for me

[Chorus 1]
Today I wanna travel the world with you, with you
Learn a new language and write a book or two, or two
Fight next to Greenpeace, Amnesty, and Médecins sans frontières
Green and blue highlights in my hair

[Verse 2]
My time is now
My dreams are meant to be
I am young healthy and free
If I don’t go now I might never

Go at all
The chances are too small
The writings on the wall
Cause in twenty years who knows who I’ll be

[Chorus 2]
Tomorrow I’ll buy my first home with you, with you
Work in my garden and plant a new tree or two, or two
Donate to Greenpeace, Amnesty, and Médecins sans frontières
Grey and white highlights in my hair…

[Bridge]
Time is passing too fast
No moment will last
No guarantee you’ll stay
For another day
Ooh….

All we have is now
And our dreams
So it seems
Who needs retirement
If your time’s well spent?
Ooh….

[Verse 3]
I’m giving it up now
I quit my job today
I told them I won’t pay
Cause I can’t afford to waste my time
