Giving Up

Two words that make you feel all warm and cozy inside.....until you put them together. 

To make a present of: We gave her flowers for her birthday.
To devote (oneself) completely: gave herself up to the project
To place in the hands of; I give you my love
To furnish or contribute: gave their time to help others.
So as to advance, increase, or improve: Our spirits went up.
With or to a greater intensity, pitch, or volume: turn the sound up.
Into a state of excitement or turbulence: stir up; rouse up.
Completely; entirely: drank it up in a gulp; fastened up the coat.
Give up
To surrender: The suspects gave themselves up
To cease to do or perform: gave up their search.
To desist from; stop: I gave up caring.
To part with; relinquish:  gave up all hope. 
To lose hope for: We had given the dog up as lost.
To lose hope of seeing: We'd given you up an hour ago.
To admit defeat. We need to give up
To abandon what one is doing or planning to do: I gave up writing the play
