Please don't give up on me, baby
Please don't give up on me, baby
Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me

I know I haven't been what a man should be
You've got every reason to wanna leave me
It's been hard on you, girl, livin' with me, I know
But don't leave me now, don't take away my home

Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me

There just ain't no excuses for the things I did
I even disrespected you in front of our kids
I know I've got no right to ask you to stay
You are the only one who can help me get myself straight

Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me

I know you're at a point where you can't take no more
Any woman would've left me long ago
But if there's any chance of we makin' it through
I need a strong woman like you

Please don't give up on me, baby
Please don't give up on me, baby
Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me

Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me

Please don't give up on me
Please don't give up on me
