When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

This is a beautiful song for the married couple who has been through a lot but still has a happy and strong life for not giving up on life and each other.

Kimberly says...
This will be our first dance song. I haven't found another song that captures us better and all that we have been through to get to where we are today. Beautiful song.

Amanda says...
This song tells our story. It brings me back to all the difficult things we went through, but then pulls me forward, to right now when things are fantastic!

Lindsay says...
This is gonna be our first dance and its perfect for us. We've been together a little less than 2 years but have been through more than most couples our age. Neither of us will ever give up on each other.

Grace says...
This is going to be our first dance. We have been through some rough times, but we've always stuck by eachother.

Nancy says...
This is our song.. every time Im feeling low or we've had a tuff day, like magic it comes on in the car to remind us of our unending love.

Soulmates says...
My fiancé and I reconnected again after 20 years. We were college sweethearts and went our separate ways to grow up and find ourselves. We married other people in our past, and since reconnecting, this song has been so reflective of our story. This is definitely the song we will dance for our "First Dance" together.

Carlene says...
I cannot wait to dance to this song with the love of my life!

Ashley says...
I could not find a better song to dance with the love of my life. It is so perfect and fits us perfectly. 12-11-14 can't get here fast enough!
