Given Up - Poem by Jakob Joseph

that's just what I've done,

this feeling has just begun, 

but in the end I still won, 

I'm numb to the core,

this feeling persists forever more, 

even after my heart you tore.


Given up, 

that's just what I've done,

this feeling has just begun,

but in the end I still won,

I've given in and now I'm free,

now I can see, 

that you were never right for me.


Given up, 

that's just what I've done,

this feeling has just begun,

but in the end I still won,

but it's not what you think, 

I haven't given up on life or love,

I've given up on you,

now given up is just what I've done, 

and given up is always what I should have done,

so now in the end I still won.
