Don't Give Up Lyrics

Artist: Peter Gabriel
Album: So

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 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
'cause 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
'cause 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
'cause I believe there's the a place
there's a place where we belong

Everybody has a place: a destination. it could be mental or physical, but it is always there.

the reason that people feel the need to do some things is because it is their place to do so.

nobody can truly find peace until he or she finds his or her place. you are not complete without it.

The pathos in Gabriel's voice, together with the angelic purity of Bush's, bring tears to my eyes every time I hear this. Even today, 24 years after it was first released, it still moves me.

This song, and much of Peter Gabriel's solo work, speaks to that spark of hope in all of us that keeps us going. Always a favorite.

Onenez hs bn preachd since childhood by "greatman" in societies n coporal punishmnt ws da reinforcer rite tru r youth years. Wit less capacitate parents believin theirs r being groomd 4 prosperity, until a rude awakening struck. My question is wit al dat pain we endured why do find songs of dis nature? Songs nt sung by any1. Im sory bt dis is wt da song awakens.
