Give Me Up

Give Me Up
By Julia Marie Faussone

Verse 1:
I been down for so long
I don’t even know what can be so wrong
Part of me is sweet on a breeze
But most of me aches for you

Chorus:
Give me up, yeah
Stop haunting me
Give me up, yeah
Let me fly on a breeze
Give me up, yeah
Stop taunting me
Oh most of me aches for you

Verse 2:
I been dark and low
I been riding slow, please no more
The heart of me is trying to look away
But baby your ghost is here to stay

Chorus:
Give me up, yeah
Stop haunting me
Give me up, yeah
Let me fly high on a breeze
Give me up, yeah
Stop taunting me
Oh most of me ache for you

Bridge:
Aches, aches, aches
Oh most of me aches for you

Verse 3:
I been driving up and down and up your street
Like a record stuck on repeat
Hoping our eyes will meet
Baby, give me, oh give me your heat

Chorus:
Give me up, yeah
Stop haunting me
Give me up, yeah
Let me fly high on a breeze
Give me up, yeah
Stop taunting me
Oh most of me aches for you
I ache for you
