Lyrics Don't Give Up

In this proud land we grew up strong we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight taught to win
I never thought I could fail
No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face
I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose
Don't give up 'cos you have friends
Don't give up you're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good
Though I saw it all around never thought that
I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn
Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born on the lakeside
As daylight broke
I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground
Don't give up you still have us
Don't give up we don't need much of anything
Don't give up 'cos somewhere there's a place where we belong
Rest your head you worry too much it's going to be alright
When times get rough you can fall back on us
Don't give up please don't give up
Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come and whatever may go
That river's flowing that river's flowing
Moved on to another town tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men so many men no-one needs
Don't give up 'cos you have friends
Don't give up you're not the only one
Don't give up no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up you still have us
Don't give up now we're proud of who you are
Don't give up you know it's never been easy
Don't give up 'cos I believe there's a place there's a place where we belong
