I Won't Give Up" is a slow burning anthem to stability in long-term relationships. What starts off in very mellow acoustic terms slowly builds and genuinely begins to hit its stride in the middle verse. Jason Mraz manages a grand, full sound that feels much larger than the simple acoustic guitar and vocal arrangement would indicate. A brief choral section helps the power of the words sink in even further. The year has only begun and we already have what could end up one of the most moving love songs of the year. However, "I Won't Give Up" is not for weddings. Instead it is for those moments when partners realize the effort is all worth it and are looking forward to a future together that stretches to the horizon.
