Deb Harley: Music / Lyrics

John Blvd.

John Blvd.



You try to hard to be a star, with every little thing you do

But all you ever see is not enough, when the truth is staring right at you

Give it up before it does you in

Your life is more than the sum of all your sins…. just give it up.


You swear the angels have forgotten you, and fate conspires to keep you down

Put on some gloves and fight your way back up, your shadow follows you around

Give it up before it does you in

Your life is more than the sum of all your sins…. just give it up.


I deserve it, why not me

I’m a loser of the first degree

A poorly fixed reality


You try too hard to be a star, but my brother the lights inside of you

Someone will love you just the way you are, there’s not a single thing you have to do

Give it up before it does you in, your life is more than the sum of all your sins

Give it up before there’s nothing left of you     

Oh my brother, give it up, oh my brother, give it up

Just give it up
