When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night skies
Or a beautiful sunrise
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 did intend
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've 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, still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and 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


Loving someone needs strong determination and commitment. Without determination and commitment, it is impossible the love can last long or forever. Why? You may ask. It's because loving, and living with, someone who is different from us, in term of point of view, taste, lifestyle, etc., will present us with many unpredictable things. You want to watch movies and your spouse wants to watch cooking program. Even such simple difference can cause big problems. In order to successfully deal with problems arising from the difference, strong determination and commitment to the initial intention of loving the spouse are needed. With the presence of those two things, when the spouse wants to watch cooking program, you may say to yourself "well, the cooking program is more important not only for her but also for me. By watching the program, she can make special cook for me." And so the argument is avoided.

Based on the complete lyric of the song above, the strong determination and commitment seems to be the main idea of the song. You can see that idea in all verses of the song. Even the title itself briefly tells us the idea.

The first verse depicts the man's admiration to the girl he loves. He admires the girl for her beauty which he likens as night sky and a beautiful sunrise. But, what makes him adore her more is the girl's struggle to be right where she is now. It is the admiration to the girl which seems to me has contributed to his determination.

The second verse, the chorus part, clearly shows us his dtermination and commitment to love his girl. "Even if the skies get rough, I'm giving you all my love," so the line goes. Of course the "even if the skies get rough" part is figurative in nature which I interpret as a very bad situation between him and his girl. It may include the situation where his girl as an affair. Even in such circumstance he will give his love to her.

The third verse tells us that the man will give space to the girl when she needs to be alone. He will wait patiently. It can only be done by those who is committed to the love. Meanwhile, the fourth and fifth verses disclose the reason why he does all that. He doesn't want to be someone who walks so easily. With all the situation and differences, as long as they are determined and committed to the relationship, they got a lot to learn. Loving is learning.

And here i will give you some lyrics quotes about this songs


General information about the Allianz Arena

The architecturally unique arena was constructed in under three years. Read on for comprehensive facts and figures about the state-of-the-art stadium in the heart of Europe.
A referendum produced an overwhelming 65.8 percent majority in favour of the project and 34.2 percent against. The requirement for a quorum of 10 percent of all those entitled to vote was also met. The turnout of 37.5 percent was the highest ever for a referendum held in Bavaria.

On 27 April 2006, FC Bayern Munich temporarily acquired 100% of the shares in the Allianz Arena after purchasing TSV 1860 Munich’s 50% share in the holding company, Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH, which the clubs had founded together.

However, TSV 1860’s right to repurchase their 50% share in Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH until 30 June 2010 was officially rescinded on Friday, 25 April 2008.
