I Gave Up

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

I gave up on my strivin’, I gave up living lies.

I gave up analyzin’, if I measure up or if I’ve arrived.

I gave up criticizin’, I gave up being right.

I gave up always tryin’, to be good enough in some people’s eyes.

 

Well, I don’t need a house on top of the world, I like the car I’m drivin’.

Everything I’ve got ain’t what I’m worth, and that’s not the reason I’m living.

I don’t need to see my name in lights or leavin’ a grand impression.

I’ve got everything I need I life, cause love’s all we’re takin’ to heaven.

 

I gave up compromisin’, I gave up all my pride.

I gave up justifyin’, and found who I was in my Savior’s eyes.

 

Well, I don’t need a house on top of the world, I like the car I’m drivin’.

Everything I’ve got ain’t what I’m worth, and that’s not the reason I’m living.

I don’t need to see my name in lights or leavin’ a grand impression.

I’ve got everything I need I life, cause love’s all we’re takin’ to heaven.

 

Always workin’ never stoppin’ talkin’ on my cell phone

Never find the time to get away and leave the workload.

Runnin’ round in circles just to keep up with the Joneses

Even in the nine to five all I really know is.

 

I don’t need a house on top of the world, I like the car I’m drivin’.

Everything I’ve got ain’t what I’m worth, and that’s not the reason I’m living.

I don’t need a house on top of the world, I like the car I’m drivin’.

Everything I’ve got ain’t what I’m worth, and that’s not the reason I’m living.

 

I don’t need to see my name in lights or leavin’ a grand impression.

I’ve got everything I need in life, cause love’s all we’re takin’ to heaven.

 

I don’t need a house on top of the world, I like the car I’m drivin’.

Everything I’ve got ain’t what I’m worth, and that’s not the reason I’m living.

 

Na na na na na na na na na na na na

Na na na na

Love’s all we’re takin’ to heaven

Na na na na na na na na na na na na

Na na na na

Love’s all we’re takin’ to heaven
