From 2008, this is the Inspiration Edit of The Nightstalker’s “Given Up”, a 4-track light rock song originally written in 2000.  This song zeros in on a love born suddenly out of friendship by someone who hasn’t had the best of times in life.  The protagonist struggles with the feeling that he has lost a friend in favor of gaining a new lover.

This is a very raw track, and almost has a “stripped down” feeling to it.  There was very little in the way of post-processing, which gives this a very raw, real feeling.  It also helps that this was one of my best vocal takes of this song, ever.

Lyrics:

It all happened so fast
I never thought it could last
The way that you make me feel
Is any of this for real?

And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope for life
Until I found you

(…No you don’t, no you don’t…)

You don’t know who I am
But I believe I can be your man
Yet I know I must get to your heart
So tell me when do we start

And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope for life
Until I found you

And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope for life
Until I found you

And I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
I’ve just about given up
Given up, given up, given up

You know what you gotta do

Tell me, is this the end?
I never thought I’d lose a friend
But I know I can do this
It comes as a shock you’d actually go through with this

And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope
And I’ve just about given up on hope for life
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Until I found you
