This song is a love song, but if you take that factor out of it, the lyrics can mean so much more than not giving up on love. The song talks about not giving up on "us" but us could mean more than just two people in a relationship. "I won't give up on us" could mean not giving up on humanity. Not giving up on the people who are trying to change this world. This song, if you look at it closely has greater meaning than just a boy who is saying he won't give up on a relationship.

 One of my favorite parts of the song is this:
 "I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
 I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make 
 Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
 The tools and gifts we got." 

 This song means more than just a romance. This song and those lyrics particularly talks about making a change and realizing that having people be different from one another is a good thing. We can learn from our differences and we each have our own different gifts that we can use. Don't give up on us. Don't give up on those of us who are different. Don't give up on those of us who are working to make a difference in this world. Don't give up on people. Don't give up on this world. We can and we will make a difference. "I am still looking up", good things and good changes will come. We can't give up now. I have put the lyrics that I think have wonderful meaning in bold.

 "I Won't Give Up"
 By Jason Mraz

When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well there's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up


And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up


I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts
We got yeah we got a lot at stake
And in the end,
You're still my friend at least we didn't tend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
I'm still looking up

I won't give up on us
God knows I'm tough, he knows
We got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up...
