Give Up the World

Give Up the World

A Poem by Josh Anderson

For her I would give up the world


I'm sorry if you think that I'm foolish 
I just can't seem to get you out of my mind 
Although I could sit here and say that I'm over you 
In my heart I know it would be a lie

And I can't bear the thought of you leaving 
A moment to just tear me apart 
Maybe it's just wishful thinking 
But what is called when you follow your heart

Don't think any less of me for trying 
To show you that I would give up the world 
Just to prove that i'd rather be dying 
Than to give up a wonderful girl
