Don’t Give Up On Me Yet-A Song

Don’t Give Up On Me Yet

By Abby Berman

It’s simple, they say,

Life simply gets in the way;

And I forget to remember

What’s really real.

I’m sorry I don’t show,

I forget to let you know,

Times have changed.

But the phone still goes both ways.

I’ve disappointed a few

Like I’ve disappointed you

Can you forgive and forget?

Yes, I’ve disappointed a few,

And I disappointed you,

But don’t give up on me yet.

Do you rewind through memories?

Perfect times with perfect ease

It all makes sense now-

We had no idea.

If we went back right now, right here,

Would it finally all be clear?

All that seemed so important

Meant nothing at all.

Well I’ve disappointed a few

Like I’ve disappointed you.

Yes, I have my regrets.

And I have forgotten a few,

But I never forgot you.

Don’t give up on me yet.

Tell you right here, right now

That I finally see how much you mean to me.

It’s taken time

And has happened so very gradually

But I’ve had my time

Made my life the way I wanted it to be,

And you’ve had yours

And I know that made you happy.

It’s simple they say,

Life simply gets in the way;

And I forget to remember

What’s really real.

Well I have forgotten a few,

But I never forgot you

So don’t give up on me yet.

You Said the Same Thing About Me

by Abby Berman

I cannot imagine

I cannot even fathom

You loving her.

Don’t bother with her name

Because they’re all just the same,

And I don’t need to know.

Tell me she’s the one,

Tell me she’s your dream,

Tell me she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

I cannot speak…

It hurts my heart to think

You’d spend your life with her.

And you pretend with ease-

You’re just so eager to please

Is it exhausting?

Tell me she’s the one,

Tell me she’s your dream,

Tell me she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

Because you said the same thing about me.

And I know, I know you think you love her.

And I know, I know you think you need her.

But I know, I know you better than that,

And you said the same thing about me.

Looking through our past,

What I was sure would last,

Is just laughable.

And from you there’s no denial

It was real all the while

It’s just insulting.

Tell her she’s the one,

Tell her she’s your dream,

Tell her she’s your home,

She’s your everything.

Then tell me

You know you’ll love her tomorrow.

Because you said the same thing about me.

And look, and look at where it got us.

I could have done, I could have done without the heartache.

I could have done, I could have done without a lot of things.

And I could have used a little more affection.

Maybe a little more, a little more truth

Because I really, I really loved you,

And you had me fooled

You had me going for longer than I care to admit.

I cannot imagine,

I cannot even fathom,

You loving her.

For more than just a while,

I was your reason to smile.

That’s all I’ll ever know.
