Solomon Burke - Don't Give Up On Me Lyrics




If I fall short
If I don't make the grade
If you're expectations aren't met in me today
There's always tomorrow, or tomorrow night
Hang in there, baby
Sooner 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 game
But my feelings, my true feelings haven't changed
Here in my heart I know, I know I was wrong, wrong, wrong...
I'd like to make amends for the love that I've never ever, ever, ever shown
Just don't give up on me, every word is true
I'll give you my everything, all of my love
All of my love, all of my love, love, love, love to you
Just don't give up on me
Oh please, please, please don't give up on me
I don't want you to
I know it's late, but wait please, please, please, please don't give up on me
Promise, will you promise me, will you promise me
Please don't give up on me
We can make it if we try
I'm going to hold on, hold on with me
And don't give up on me...
Oh baby, oh baby, please, don't give up on me
Whatever you do we'll make it though
Don't you give up on me
Please, please, please promise me
Don't give up on me

  1. Nancy Jones

    Prey For Rock and Roll and gina Gershon brought me here.

  2. AnnetteHennessy1

    Absolutely beautiful and poignant. My husband has dementia and this song reminds me of what is important when he is not at his best. Through tears, I will never give up on him.

    Flo Liddell

    Hang in there baby

  3. Ghanya Thomas

    Actor Wendell Pierre’s Desert 🏝Island Discs brought me here.

    I loveeeeeee this song 😍😍😍😍😍

  5. A lesser Gracie

    Love me all things SB. Saw him in concert toward the end of his life. He sat on a throne. He gave red roses to all the females, and tee shirts to the males. He had quite a few of his children in the band. Last I read he had 21 children and 90 grandchildren, which I find a little odd. I wonder who took of them all. I digress. Just to add that SB has always been an underappreciated, larger than life character and performer. Love him. This album was put together by many of his musician friends who wrote songs for him. Tom Waits, Van Morrison. Great collection of new songs. RIP SB. What a beautiful soulful voice he has.

    👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  13. RNation100

    WOW! I'd only heard this man's name in the Van Morrison song "Real Gone". Like everyone else, I've listened to a lot of artists, and I play guitar in a band etc. But, after this first time listening to Solomon Burke, I am awestruck! Just absolutely impeccable. I feel sorry for the people that felt they had to hit the Thumbsdown button. Thanks you for posting this ... Halleluia!

  14. Alfredo Jacinto

    It's hard to believe that this video has not gone past 1 million views. Best song......The O.C. did bring me here!!!

  15. AndréSilva92 lepiking

    Sandy Cohen better than Salomon Burke, no doubt.

  16. Bazonk Witt

    I met a beautiful man on Facebook and we been talking for 9 months he has shown me a love I've never known and I want him to know plz don't give up on me.. We live many miles apart but I know one day God will see us through and bring us together as one....love u Boogs..❤❤❤

    Galan Akbar

    Same like me now, I separated time and distance with my boy friend, I love him....

    All I can say to him every night is don't give up on me....

    Kudos to the Audio Engineers in this song who kept the dynamics, the warmth of the song. Instead of cranking up the volume and over-limiting and over-compressing the crap out of it to make it "louder".

  19. Josh Bush

    What an amazing soul! Thanks for making one of the best songs sir, second to only a dream!😀❤❤❤

  56. staxmantim

    Rare to have a beautiful Southern Soul song in the 21st century. Of course, it helps when it's performed by the late, great "King of Rock 'n' Soul", Solomon Burke & written by Soul legends Dan Penn & Carson Whitsett

  57. Bryan Alexander

    Sandy and kristen 💗

  58. loula gd

    For my dad who has never give up on his family <3 #jipe.k

    That's sweet. My uncle co-wrote this, & I got to meet the great Mr. burke before he passed. An honor!

    Michael Flecha, What is the O.C. A TV show? Or not, where can I find it? I do not have television, but Netflix and Amazon Prime (Amazon sucks, there's fewer and fewer options that comes with this membership, they are now asking to pay extra.) I am here because I love SB, own this CD and am exploring his other music, esp gospel informed pieces. Thank you.

  69. TotalJim1984

    I pray with every fiber of my being that my wife doesn't give up on me.

    Bob Murphy

    @TotalJim1984 We've all had those times, moments when we do something we regret. Or when we didn't pay attention, to those things that mattered to the ones we love. I hope she doesn't give up, or turn away. Learn from this, be the better you...love unconditionally...do what it takes...we only go round once, make it count.

    A From Anaheim

    Man, I know we are strangers, but, fight for what you had and for what you want. And if in the end, if that's not enough, know, that you did everything you could. And ad man, that's all we can do.

    A From Anaheim

    +Bob Murphy True, indeed. Well said.

  71. Gene Corrado

    Great late- in -life contribution from a Hall Of Fame singer. I loved everything this guy ever did. As a baseball fan, ill relate it to Ted Williams, who hit a home run in his last at bat.
    So did Solomon Burke.
