“Won’t Give Up” – New Song

This song was inspired by the Molly Fyde books by Hugh Howey. In the books, Molly searches for people she loves, and she doesn’t give up, even when other people think she can’t find what she’s searching for. (Check out Hugh Howey’s post about the song.)

“Won’t Give Up” Lyrics

Verse 1:
Rain falls down
Can’t hear a sound
Lost in your memories
Please don’t forget

So far away
I feel you anyway
No matter what
I won’t give up on you (give up on you)

You were the one
I could count on
Stood by my side
and pulled me through

They say you’re lost
and can’t be found
I won’t give up
I won’t give up on you.

Verse 2:
Senses gone
This living death
Mouth to mouth
You gave me breath
I won’t forget


Hard to navigate
Without you
can’t see straight
But I know it’s in the stars
We belong together
Can’t keep us apart.


I won’t give up on you.
