Came across this song on the radio and it made me think of Jack. He wasn't one to walk away for sure.



Jason Mraz: I won't give up

Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmm ...

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

Here's a cover version of it (as the original versions pretty much NEVER are available in my country for legal reasons).

Chrissi that is a wonderful song!

Now here's my contribution from Joe Cocker:

Up Where We Belong

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world where few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it's real
I keep it alive

The road is long
There are mountains in the way
But we climb a step every day

[Chorus]
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Up where the clear winds blow

Some hang on to used to be
Live their lives looking behind
When all we have is here and now
All our lives
Out there to find

The road is long
There are mountains in the way
But we climb a step every day

[Chorus]

Time goes by
No time to cry
Life's you and I
Alive, today

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then it's smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

After finally watching the movie for the first time with sfericsf, I was playing him my records the next day never realized how many of my songs kept reminding of the movie and of Jack and Ennis... (Especially most of the A side of the Carpenters album A Song for You). These songs don't need much explanation and can speak for themselves.

I know Eric said there's been a few covers of this one, but I had to throw Karen's in--- one of my favorite renditions.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC9sEAqEjxs[/youtube]
I had to include this one--- I told Eric this song reminded me of him and me long before I saw BBM, and you were right babe there are a lot of parallels between us and Jack and Ennis. (Hope I didn't embarrass ya  ;) :-* )

Heard this one last night, and I had to suggest it too...

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac24COCKTVM[/youtube]

As soon as I heard the lyrics I immediately thought of Jack and Ennis and their true feelings they kept inside.

This verse sums it up quite well:

If we both were born
In another place and time
This moment might be ending in a kiss
But there you are with yours
And here I am with mine
So I guess we'll just be leaving it at this

OH MY GOODNESS......so Ennis and Jack

And might I add, soooo true for so many others too....I reflect on my father, born in 1926, another place and time.....
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection
