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?

Haha, this is rather funny yet beautiful and sad too. I love it. She just inspired me to write a poem. Thank you.

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.

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.

She's saying she's giving up trying to find someone else, and staying with the one she's got because she loves him :)

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

I think it's funny how differently people understand this song. Personally I think it's a sweet romantic song.

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 :)

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.
