Giving Up

on Be Ok

Lyrics

What if we stop having a ball?
What if the paint chips from the wall?
What if there's always cups in the sink?
Oh what if I'm not what you think I am?

She's giving up on the thought that there might be something better out there. She's settling on the guy that she's currently with. Anti-romanti c until that last little bit about for you.

Actually it doesn't work
This is depressing.. .
Follow me and I will follow you.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed next Friday by someone ou love. However if you don't post his nothing will happen. Now that you've started reading, don't stop. This is not scary. Put this on at least 5 songsin at least 4947 minutes and nothing will happen. It really works, his is so not scary.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you do not post this comment on three songs you will die in two days. Now that you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least five songs min at least 143 minutes then press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works.
If you give up your a loser but the song still rocks
I love this song
I'm completely straight but I think she is absolutely adorable! c:
I am giving up for you......

I know its supposed to be all solemn and beautiful, but seriously! What if I never let you in, and chase you with a rolling pin? LOL!

Give up and keep what you have! :)
this song has a different meaning for me, one that's very close to my heart. :)
Beautiful voice! :) I love " Be Ok" acoustic!

She's saying she's giving up trying to find someone else, and staying with the one she's got because she loves him :)
Love the song but is she the one that sings dumb ways to die
This song is okay but i like her other songs more because this one is a littel slow
Crushing & ENCOURAGING simultaneous l y . As always, mellifluous & enchanting!
I love this song. :) <3 its so cute.
(and i love the humour....." A n d what if i never let you win, and chase you with a rolling pin?" ha-ha ;)

This isn't a duet. She just recorded it with her voice in the backround. Otherwise, it would say Ingrid Michaelson and someone else as the artists
:(
This duet makes me feel happy. I love it!
love this :)
thegooch6
yea i agree with kuokoa faster tempo but good lyrics!
Just like a good movie, you have got to love a song that evokes emotion, regardless of which one/s.
cute lyrics! just wish it was a little more up beat tempo!
I think it's funny how differently people understand this song. Personally I think it's a sweet romantic song.
Aw, what a sad song.
sad sad sad song!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I love this song, Its really moving :-)
These are all the what-ifs she is thinking of since she is choosing this person rather than continuing to look for "greener grasses." I'm getting that she is deciding to go with someone who makes her happy...

"I am giving up for you"

No reason to tell her not to give up :)
mr.jwags
Love the lyrics.
spamanduh
It's a very sweet, romantic song. What-ifs have ruined many promising relationship s , and she won't let it happen to this one because she's giving up on them.
lol why shouldn't you be happy! seriously dont give up
locupleto
So am I
never give up! there will always be a light, no matter how small, at the end of the road. darkness can never extinguish light. :) very prophetic of me, i know, lol
