lyrics

High tide in a homely harbour
On an ocean with a golden hue
We were young once in the grip of ardour
We could sail away to a brighter blue

No one could tell us timely
That you build today of tomorrow's blues
We walk in time and we don't mind running
When the future hides where you know it to

But you're giving it up, giving it up baby
Letting you down, letting you down slowly
Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show
But you waited enough, waited enough honey
You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday
Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow
'Cause you never know

Changes that creep in quietly
A stranger in familiar rooms
I'm hoping I can find that feeling
Some brighter light I can hold you to

But you're giving it up, giving it up baby
Letting you down, letting you down slowly
Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show
But you waited enough, waited enough honey
You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday
Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow
'Cause you never know
No you never know, no you never know

Giving it up, giving it up baby
Giving it up, giving it up baby
Giving it up, giving it up baby
Giving it up, giving it up baby

Low tide in a lonely harbour
As the ocean cuts the moon in two
On a small ship clinging to each other
If we hold on tight we can make it through

But you're giving it up, giving it up baby
Letting you down, letting you down slowly
Hanging around, hanging around hoping love might show
But you waited enough, waited enough honey
You had to be wrong, had to be wrong someday
Giving it up, giving it up hoping love might grow
'Cause you never know
No you never know, no you never know
No you never know, no you never know
No you never know, no you never know
