Don't Give up on Love

It's not right:  You've thought of him all day.
Your life hasn't been easy.  Your Dad has gone away.
Please hang in there.  Call when you need a friend.
I know this is hard for you.  I'll try to understand.

Don't give up on love
Cause you're lonely and you're scared.
Your Mom & Dad love you.  I know they still care.
Don't give up on love
When everything goes wrong.
People called grown-up don't always get along.
Don't give up on love.
Don't give up.

I know you called him to talk on the phone.
He didn't have time for you.  He wasn't alone.
It's hard to believe they don't love you any less
When they're the ones who've put you
Into this kind of mess.

Don't give up on love
Cause you're lonely and you're scared.
Your Mom & Dad love you.  I know they still care.
Don't give up on love
When everything goes wrong.
People called grown-up don't always get along.
Don't give up on love.
Don't give up.

I feel for you, I've been there too.
But you're wiser than your parents now,
Somehow you'll make it through.

Don't give up on love
Cause you're lonely and you're scared.
Your Mom & Dad love you.  I know they still care.
Don't give up on love
When everything goes wrong.
People called grown-up don't always get along.
Don't give up on love.
Don't give up.
