Performances[]

Big Time Rush first performed their cover of "I Won't Give Up" during a flash concert appearance at the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California. The event, organized by UNICEF and held on January 20, 2012, was created to raise money and awareness for children in need.[1] Big Time Rush made a surprise guest appearance and performed "I Won't Give Up" as a duet with American singer and actress Selena Gomez, the hosting artist and an ambassador for the UNICEF organization.[1]

The band gave a second performance the following day, during a live appearance on iHeart Radio's 105.5 FM, a radio station based in Utica, NY. All four members of the band sang lead vocals while Kendall Schmidt additionally played the acoustic guitar.

Lyrics[]

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?

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
'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 want to 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 build without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got and what I'm not and who I am

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
I'm still looking up
Well, I won't give up on us
God knows I'm tough
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
