Don’t Give Up

 
 

All you wanted was the latest game

It seemed nothing else was fair

How could I let you live in shame

It was mine-and ours to share

You played a hundred hours

Developed skills and powers

And cast away all those who dared engage you


Troubled manhood followed battled youth

Plans were many and most in vain

Early dreaming had outstripped the truth

But you were never one to complain


Because with every year we challenged every fear

Our effort and reward would come together


Don't give up, or throw your dreams away

There are better times if you’re inclined to bend or sway

Don't give up, or fold without a fight

There are wiser ways on through the maze of dark and light

Please believe, you got it made

This picture’s missing nothing but a frame

That’s why I’m here my friend and I intend to see you right


Because with every year we challenge every fear

Our effort and reward will come together


Don't give up, or throw your dreams away

There are better times if you’re inclined to bend or sway

Don't give up, or fold without a fight

There are wiser ways on through the maze of dark and light

Please believe, you got it made

This picture’s missing nothing but a frame

That’s why I’m here my friend and I intend to see you right


So move with your every intention, I’m right there for you

And break every bone of contention, I’m right there for you

Break through to another dimension, And move with your every intention

And break every bone of contention, I’m right there for you


All you wanted you can still attain

Although nothing is ever fair

If you run then I will hold the flame

I will be there if you will swear


You won’t give up, or throw your dreams away

There are better times if you’re inclined to bend or sway

Don't give up, or fold without a fight

There are wiser ways on through the maze of dark and light

Don’t give up, we’re nowhere near the end

You should keep in mind there’ll come a time you’ll need a friend

Don’t give up, don’t wanna hear you curse

If you’re thinking small you’ll turn it all from bad to worse

Don’t give up....
