Cover up
With loving protection
Guard your love
In every direction 

[Chorus:]
Don't give up
For fear of rejection
Stand your ground and voice an objection

Run away my sister and brother
Be afraid of love when the lover 

[Verse 1:]
Tries to read the book by the cover
Wrapped up in the arms of another

[Chorus]
Don't give up
For fear of rejection
Stand your ground and voice an objection

Cover up prolonging the yearning
Just ahead the fires are burning VERSE 2
Swim for shore the tides are now turning
Love the ones you love with your learning

[Chorus]
Don't give up
For fear of rejection
Stand your ground and voice an objection

Look ahead the futures depending
On the brave to now start defending VERSE 3
Tell the world the message you're sending
We don't need an unhappy ending

[Chorus]
Don't give up
For fear of rejection
Stand your ground and voice an objection
Got to be safe if you want to be free BRIDGE
To sit in the shade of the family tree

[Verse 1:]
Tries to read the book by the cover
Wrapped up in the arms of another

[Chorus]
Don't give up
For fear of rejection
Stand your ground and voice an objection
Got to be safe if you want to be free
To sit in the shade of the family tree
