But he Did

I am unashamed, or maybe like just a little bit ashamed, of how much I love this sappy Jason Mraz song, I Won’t Give up. It’s basically about, you’re a crazy person, I’m a crazy person, but let’s let each other be crazy, and not give up on each other. Some lyrics:

Well, 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

I love this sentiment. It’s passionate and ridiculous, but also mature and sane. The internet informs me that he was dating another singer / songwriter for quite sometime, so obvs, this song is about her. But then, the thing is: the internet also tells me that, kind of out of nowhere, he broke off their engagement and left her. And so, he did Give Up. But perhaps he tried first, at least? And perhaps this song is said trying?
