About the song[]

Give It All Up features backing vocals by Tove Lo. Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson (born 29 October 1987), known professionally as Tove Lo (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈtûːvɛ ˈluː]), is a Swedish singer and songwriter, who has been called "Sweden's darkest pop export" by Rolling Stone. She is known for her raw, grunge-influenced take on pop music. She mainly sings the third chorus.

Tove Lo said on Instagram: "Such an honor for me to join these legends on this amazing album and tune. Getting to sing along to Simon's voice on “Give It All Up” was pretty surreal. I’m also a big fan of Erol Alkan, so I was very excited when I heard he was producing the track! It’s that kind of emotional song that keeps building in desperation and energy so you wanna dance and cry to it. My favorite kind!" (Source)

Lyrics[]

(yeah, I give it all up for you)

We are pinned to an evening
That’s running out of road
As the last ray of light heads into dark
If it's closure you’re craving
Some message in the code
To fill the empty space in with your mark

(ooh)
(yeah, I give it all up for you)

Standing on the edge of something greater than us all
Down into the heart of universes we fall
Falling with the fires trailing glory on their way
Know that we are heading for tomorrow today

Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do?
When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you
Giving up believing
Giving up completely
or you... (ohh)

Knowing that world will keep on turning, going on
And we let the night forever burn when we've gone
Burning with the stars that wander lonely on their way
Know that life is heading here tomorrow - today

Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do?
When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you
Giving up believing
Giving up completely
For you... (ohh-ahhh)

(Yeah, I give it all up for you)
(ooh)

And the sun beats down on skin and ground and anything between
And the moon looks down on broken vows
Fills the space between us with that cold blue shine
and I can’t remember how our love felt at the start
no I can't remember

Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do?
When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you
Giving up believing (Giving up believing)
Giving up completely (completely)
For you.. (ohh)
