Sarah McLachlan has performed "Don't Give Up on Us", one of the new songs in her upcoming greatest hits album "Closer-The Best of Sarah McLachlan" which is due October 7. After giving introduction of what the song means, Sarah turns to her piano to perform the acoustic version of the song.

"Don't Give Up on Us" is inspired by her recent split from husband of 11 years, Ashwin Sood. According to Sarah it is "pretty self-explanatory, basically just a plea to give it another chance and keep trying." The other new material in the compilation, "U Want Me 2" is also derived from the painful experience, telling how at the end of relationship there's a lot of anger and sadness.

Sarah is also working on new materials for a new studio album which is slated to hit the stores in the next two years. The greatest hits meanwhile, is available in two versions, the standard 16 tracks and a deluxe edition that contains two CDs. Both of them will include her charting hits like "Adia", "Angel" and "I Will Remember You".

This is a touching video by one of the planets greatest artists showing her inner pain and sharing with all.I GET THE feeling this was not Sarahs idea to end 11 years and two kids that were part of her life.Sarah you will always have so many behind you.

The acoustic version sucks. The album one is much much better.

Don't Give Up On Us is truly a great song. The emotions that she expresses in her beautiful voice is so touching. This live performance is great. I also love the studio album version. Turn it really loud, and let her resonating voice pierce your heart and feel the emotions she conveys.
