I gave up all my striving
I gave up living lies
I gave up analyzing if I measure up or if I’m right?
I gave up criticizing
I gave up being right
I gave up always trying to be good enough in some people’s eyes

Chorus:

Well I don’t need a house on top of the world
I like the car I’m driving
Everything I got ain’t what I’m worth
That’s not the reason I’m living
I don’t need to see my name in lights or leave any grand impression
I’ve got everything I need in life ‘cause love’s all we’re taking to heaven

I gave up comprising
I gave up all my pride
I gave up justifying and found who I was in my Savior’s eyes

Chorus

Always working, never stopping, talking on the cell phone
Never find the time to get away and leave the work load
Run around in circles just to keep up with the Joneses
Even in the 9 to 5 all I really know is .....

I don’t need a house on top of the world
I like the car I’m driving
Everything I got ain’t what I’m worth
That’s not the reason I’m living

I don’t need a house on top of the world
I like the car I’m driving
Everything I got ain’t what I’m worth
That’s not the reason I’m living
I don’t need to see my name in lights or leave any grand impression
I’ve got everything I need in life ‘cause love’s all we’re taking to heaven

I gave up all my striving
I gave up living lies
I gave up justifying and found who I was in my Savior’s eyes

I gave up x 2
Oh I gave up
I gave up
Oh yea!
