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 cause 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 I never thought that I could be affected
I thought that we would 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
And 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 cause somewhere there's a place there's a place where we belong
