Don't Give Up On Me - Lyrics

If I fall short
If I don't make the _1_
If your _2_ aren't met in me today
There's always tomorrow, or tomorrow night
Hang in there, baby
_3_ or later I know I'll get it right
Please don't give up on me
Oh please don't give up on me
I know It's late, late in the _4_
But my feelings, my true feelings haven't _5_
Here in my _6_ I know, I know I was wrong, wrong, wrong
I'd like to make_7_ for the love that I've never ever, ever, ever shown
Just don't give up on me, every word is _8_
I'll give you my everything, all of my love,
All of my love, all of my love, love, love to you
Just don't give up on me,
oh please, please, please don't give up on me
