DO NOT GIVE UP
David Archuleta


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

Do not give up
'Cos you have friends
Do not give up
're not beaten yet
Do not 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

Do not give up
You still have us
Do not give up
We do not need much of anything
Do not 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
Do not give up
Please do not give up

Got to walk out of here
I can not 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

Do not give up
'Cause you have friends
Do not give up
You're not the only one
Do not give up
No reason to be ashamed
Do not give up
You still have us
Do not give up now
We're proud of who you are
Do not give up
You know it's never been easy
Do not give up
'Cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong
