Never Give Up on Me - MisterWives
MisterWives are back at it again, interpreting their version of unconditional love through music and lyrics with their new true-to-form pop funk jam, “Never Give Up On Me.”

Unconditional love means a lot of things, but what it holds true across the board, is that you will love that person at their worst and you will love them at their best. No matter what. You can say you love someone unconditionally, but it’s not until you’re truly tested that you find it is true. MisterWives are back at it again, interpreting their version of unconditional love through music and lyrics with their new heartwarming, soul-pumping single, “Never Give Up on Me.”

Never Give Up on Me” – MisterWives


The song begins with Mandy Lee’s wispy yet strong vocals speaking what can only be construed as her truth as she is the songwriter of the band,

I crash and burn asking you to look away
I crash and burn wondering why it is that you stay
I know it isn’t pretty how I can’t handle everything
But you never give up on me

Snapping fingers and clapping hands are intertwined around guitar licks, incorporating into the track what you see a lot of at their live show. Strong funky guitar licks enter in building up to the chorus that fully enables you to feel the overwhelming joy Mandy Lee is singing about,

When you love me so damn good
I know I will get better
When you hold me so damn good
I know I will get better
Give me wood, shelter,
what through every bit of weather
How is it that you never give up on me
How is it that you never give up on me
Never give up on me
Never give up on me
Never Give Up on Me - MisterWives

Never Give Up on Me – MisterWives

The lyrics are so simple and pure, which is what makes them so powerful. The truth shines through with simplicity. Similar to unconditional love, it is not a complicated matter. It does not have to be over explained. It is what it is and that is what makes wonderful. The second verse picks up musically as Mandy Lee continues to sing out,

I sink into a blue that tucks me into sleep
It’s easier to close my eyes than to hear my demons think
But you wake me better than the morning’s rising sun
And you never give up on me

The song continues through to the bridge and then the chorus again. Raw and refined – the hand claps and guitar licks with a choir of voices in the back add to the authenticity that makes MisterWives. The songs ends with Mandy Lee’s vocals running up and down the scale and a final strong sing of the lyrics “don’t you give up on me” to drive it home.

The song truly touches on how it feels when you are so loved that you honestly sometimes don’t even know why that person loves you. It’s intangible. It’s unconditional.
