Missing Persons - Give Lyrics




When's the last time you really touched someone
How did it feel
Did it surprise you when you found yourself unselfish
Did it seem unreal
The pressure's everywhere - everywhere around you
Beckon you to turn the other way
But I say the results are superficial
There's only one way to play

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Give - when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Put your head where your feet are going
'Cause the good outweighs the bad
It's you that should be - you should be knowing
It's for what you give not what you have
When it seems you - you can't give enough
Realize it's the good you do it for
So when the going gets a little bit tough
You've got to give a little bit more

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

When you're looking for an answer
Nothing seems to fit
Don't give up
You've got to let your heart become the
Mirror of your mind
Give in

Don't wait for something to cause you reason
Set your goal let your mind follow through
When you feel something to believe in
You'll make all your dreams, all your dreams come true

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

Give-when you have anything at all to give
You have everything to live for
(Give all you've got to give)
After you've given all you can
Give again, give again, give again

(Give all you've got to give)
You've got to give
You've got to give
You've got to give
(Give all you've got to give)
You've got to give
You've got to give
You've got to give
(Give all you've got to give)
(Give all you've got to give)
You've got to give
You've got to give
You've got to give
(Give all you've got to give)
You've got to give
You've got to give
You've got to give
...

Missing Persons Give Comments
  1. Keith Novinski

    Dale Bozzio going for the David Ferrie look.

  2. Thomas H H

    she was something else as Eddie Cochran would say.

  3. Don Francisco

    What a great message Dale

  4. Carltln Reese

    How come every Missing Persons video I go to there are inevitably a myriad of people chiming in about Lady Gaga. Give it a rest! Artists painting their faces and dying their hair has never really been that original a concept.

  5. Edward Borland

    So refreshing to hear this talent in vacuous 2019

  6. spiritual cramp

    in my cowntry it is often sayd that 'good wine is stored in small barrels' dale forbidden desire of my missing teenage

  7. Tarkeema Lewis

    i always liked Dale's outfits .they are really out of this world

  8. Jimmy Hamilton

    I wonder in Warren still has that cool guitar

  9. Michael Caz

    This band was Supremely Talented. Terry Bozzio is a Monster on Drums (listen to the track's Tears, or U.S.Drag among many others). I saw them perform Live in NYC = Show was Epic. Dale came out in See-Thru Plastic Bubbles-outfit. I was 3rd row dead center. Rumor has it- Prince (R.I.P.) was listening to Missing Persons heavily before he passed. Talent recognizes/appreciates Talent.

  10. Gb Crowne

    My favorite song of this awesome band! 💜💜💜

  11. Carlos Castro

    Look at that guitar !!! he's in lightyears ahead of now !!!

  12. Brady Hess

    You can't buy a stairway to heaven by giving or by self-righteous do gooding. The way to heaven is only by faith in the God-man Jesus. To try to make up for a lifetime of sin by doing good is a big insult to what Jesus did on the cross. Big sin.

  13. Danny Workman

    THE best DRummer in the world, BOZIO

  14. Brady Hess

    Yawn. Nap time....

  15. Brady Hess

    If it is not given in the name of the God-man Jesus, it counts for nothing in eternity, it just satisfies you constant craving to feel good about yourself. God wants us all to be filthy rich. He does not want all our money.

  16. Don Seagrave

  17. Mr Schmeltz

    And Gaga bought Zappa's house... Why ? She's not gaining anymore fans her career is over and never was good really... Missing Persons 3 albums and a EP and awesome live CD's from the era... Watch Holy Moly the 83 US Festival Every song they ever wrote was amazing ...

  18. Jonathan S.

    OKAY we all know now Gaga stole so much from her, WE GOT IT!! So what, so many artists and bands and other people steal stuff from the ones that came before them, ALL THE TIME!! You think Beyonce is 100% "original"? You think Spice Girls were original? You think Joan Jett was original? You think Elvis was original? You think Rolling Stones were original? Think again.

  19. WV591

    the most gifted and natural female vocalist from USA....young lady had a style all her own..timeless. up there with Lene Lovich and Siouxsie Sioux. Ahhh the 80s. so much energy and Awesome music.

  20. Maria Melchor

    Why are the men wearing makeup? Are they gay? That's something I never understood about Male performers back in the 80s.

  21. Dennis Lamb

    I was a giant fan of theirs.

  22. MATTY ICE

    Ditching the drum set for that machine was so 80s. I liked their sound on the first album, GA GA should pay dale residuals for totally ripping off her look..

  23. Mary Soundgarden

    Tutti musicisti di Frank Zappa. Warren Cuccurullo, Dale and Terry Bozzio.

  24. Sugar D

    She has lips like Ace Frehley

  25. The Hydronater

    What the feck is that guitar he's playing??

  26. Michelle Chang

    Every missing persons video has relatable millennials trying to bash Lady Gaga or Gwen Stephani lol

  27. 240ups

    Fantastic aggressive hard rock sound as much as a new wave one. Very few new wave bands did that, Ministry debut album, is really only one that comes to mind.

  28. c clark

    Ever so Lady Ga-Ga got her style from Dale........and about Warren.........He did a good job in replacing Andy in Duran Duran........If Warren ,Simon,Nick,J.T and Rodger did decide to record again that be a "Epic" line up

  29. marty maness

    This looks like it came from the future.

  30. Dave Mire

    wow, this song is Funky.

  31. gian paolo pelizzaro

    Sorry for that, but Lady Gaga is nothing compared to Dale. Just a pale imitation...

  32. JEAN-ERIC TATEÏA

    Sweet,Nice and Amazing.I like this song a lot.Another Jewel of the best Musics of the Fantastic 80's.Warm and Precious Memories.

  33. Channel Zero

    I've never seen so many people go so long without blinking.

  34. photographerjonathan

    I really loved missing persons, I saw them a few times live, but I think it was a big mistake for the band when Terry Bozzio went to an electronic kit and changed the sound of the band. there bands success went down hill after the change, I still think they were one of the coolest bands ever. but Mental Hopscotch / Words / Destination unknown / Walking in LA / I like Boys / so many cool songs with real drums, I can remember Terry Bozzio doing a drum solo over the groove of US Drag at the US festival. I really think if they would have stuck to there original sound and of the style of there first songs they would have made it allot bigger. but unfortunately they are still underrated because of not making as big as they should have.

  35. Eduardo Mata

    El premio de Lady GAGA debieron dárselo a ella.

  36. Ron Benoche

    Cool...

  37. Michael Fitzgerald

    Every video and song i heard today is just amazing... I mean amazing.. I would like to thank the group for your incrediable work.. Thank you thank you thank you.. As for that dirtbag lady gage me.. Try something original.. I did not mean to insult your lack of intelligence.. Because there is none to insult😁😁😁😁

  38. Jdeft Defrost

    The 80s ..... What can I say? I grew up with this music. Dale was hot but she couldn't dance...... Want something modern? Look up DAWN

  39. eiderglast

    Re-discovering gems of eighties music. Timeless, still danceable, and also great for night cruising.

  40. Delta Drones

    lady gaga is a Missing Persons style thief

  41. toro64xxx

    This song, the message in it,, and her interview in 2014 tells me this woman is the real deal very very humanitarian.

  42. Ron F

    Dale was and still is Hot!

  43. Blood Scust

    Miranda Sings was great in the 80s

  44. Roberto Rivera

    This is an inspiring song. "Give, like you've got everything to give. Give like you've everything to live for. New workout song. :3

  45. StrangeWays

    I was let down by this period of their career.

  46. r2blank2

    Wave synth!

  47. Christopher Cotton

    If this doesn't get your ass moving on the dance floor then something is wrong with you!!

  48. synapticflow

    Those lips Dale!

    My favorite 80s band.

  49. Raiders of the lost Narc

    Lady Gaga ripped her style off from Dale Bozzio.

    Mike Davidson

    Reminds me of driving through San Diego lol. Seems like they would of been part of the early 80s punk scene in Los Angeles even though they were from Australia😳😳😳😳😳

  50. Patrick Michael

    They sexiest mouth of the 80s for sure!!!

  51. Leathan Lund

    So over-produced it makes Terry Bozzio sound like a drum machine.

  52. John Hutto

    Dale Bozzio is A great Voice & Legend

  53. John Hutto

    the original Legends :Missing Persons : Lady Gaga took that look

  54. Pleasure Victim

    The summer after 8th grade i got to see them when they toured for this album. At that point, it was easily the greatest day of my existence. My friend and i were at the very front of the stage and they were phenomenal from start to finish. Seeing that guitar and drum set right before my eyes was just...😍

  55. Scott Briggs

    Dale's hair is Gorgon-like but in the best possible manner here.

  56. saturninenight garcia

    My heart beats fast...Rock on Missing Persons!

  57. Tina R

    Write out the words
    To this...outstanding
    Deep wisdom
    Life truism from rockers extraordinaire!!

  58. Edwin Salas Hernandez

    46 people didn't give it all they can.

  59. 12B4Christ

    How about all of you stop with the "lady" kaka comparisons.  Give Dale her credence alone.  All of you prove so much about yourselves who have to entertain the comparison world.This tune, "Give" wow if they could have kept stretching from this point somewhat outside the "commercial" sounds for radio.  This one is rich and shows fantastic talent all over the place.  Its all great, but man that bass is very hot on this tune.Dale, what a fascinating futuristic fantasy......................

  60. Roosevelt McCarter

    What album was this taken from? Spring Session M or Rhyme And Reason? Your answer.

    I got this on a 7" vinyl single when it came out. Dale Bozzio was a hottie..

  67. Ashy B

    when my eyebrows do what I want. Thats gonna be my new look. 80s feels.

  68. Chips Perry

    Terry Bozzio looks a tad like Punky Meadows in this. The irony

  69. easyscore

    Monster musicianship and one of the great and chsrismstic lead singers ever

  70. George Erhard

    The new wave band that graduated from the Zappa School of Rock. And it shows - crazy looks and tight talent.

  71. easyscore

    There are not enough superlatives to describe this band.

  72. ICKY STICKY MIKKI PICKY

    THEY made USE of THE 80's ECCENTRICITY trend, TO a 100%. WONDERFUL.

  73. Cecily Trimble

  79. Christina Tupper

  80. emma duncan

    the most obviously self consciously "new wave" band of the 80's

  81. Bishop Boyd

    DALE BOZZIO got hers from WENDY O WILLIAMS. Glossier version of course.

    Roberto Rivera

  83. Matthew Kowal

    Warren's Missing Link Guitar.

  84. David Rodriguez

    LOVE this vid and song!!!!!

  85. Carlos Beltran

    What a voice of Mrs. Bozzio. Step aside imitacions. And Mr. Terry Bozzio as genius as he was besides the members of UK. Thanks.

    The Imaginary Gallery

    The Upper Points of Dales Lips do not match! And the black eyebrows were a little extreme, yet she was still one of the most 'original' looking stars of the era.

  86. Chromium Magic Autofill

    Lady Gaga stole everything from Dale Bozzio !

    joweerocks

    Gaga didn't steal Dales legs!!!!

    wundermary

    Dale stole it all from Fee Waybill.

    j dragoon

    Gaga probably got inspired heavily by her. She might of wanted to be like her. Gaga is immensely talented. So if Dale ignited that fire that helped create Gaga than thats surely a compliment to Dale

    NOV17MAY16

    @j dragoon Gaga is very talented, the aonga ahe chooses to record are mostly crap though.

    Mikey's Playhouse

    Except the high caliber band.

  87. Greg Jordan

    not all at one time

  88. bilboquet00

    Bass lines way passed anything played at the time(school of Mick Karn-Japan) ,Belew's guitar school of advanced, Terry's never equaled synth drums and Dale's perfect body of voice, and top pop production ; MP is a definite for a special place at the Rock Hall of Fame.

  89. Nachoman Andy Cabbage

    I miss high end tape decks and big watt meters.

  90. Alexander The Great

    Out of Missing Persons entire discography, this is their most artistic track. Every time I hear the interlude (Warren's guitar riff), it reminds me of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" by U2 (1983).

  91. Berlinlover1917

    Wish I go wear those outfits.

  92. Colin Sanders

    entered Billboard March 17, 1984 ..reached #67

  93. Rick Brummell

    Timeless material, always loved the Bozzio's
    Neat shit that may linger for a while methinks~

    Danke' Bozzio's

  94. Zeus Cribari

    Bozzio's beats seem simple until you try and drum along. Especially in the song Slingshot from Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop album.

  95. BKLTD USA

    @LadyGaGa's muse > Dale Sexxio! #80s

  96. Scott Allison

    Nice bass lines....

    John DeF

    Band is tight.
