As we stood there older than men
And younger than the boys (that's right)
We were as still as the wind
That blows on a hot August night

And you were lonesome as a jukebox
But deadly just the same
I could be as gentle as a newborn
Then spit into the eye of a hurricane

And we knew how to laugh
And we knew how to cry
Yeah, we sure knew how to live
But we don't ever

Never say die, never say die

I guess you'd say we had a pact
These words we knew so well (that's right)
Still they remained unspoken
And we'd take them to the fiery gates of hell

Once I was afraid of love
But when it's your brother those things change
'Cause love is just another word for trust
So hear me when I say

Never say die, never say no
You got to look 'em in the eye and don't let go
When it's your own blood you'll bleed
And your own tears you'll cry
When you're brought up to believe
That it's the strong who survive
Never say die

[Guitar solo]

Yeah, and we could run like lightning (we could run like lightning)
Through the pouring rain (through the rain)
And we'll be standing like a soldier
Who comes marching home again (left, right, left, right)

They ask what it is that I want written (they ask what it is that I want written)
On the gravestone where I'll lie (on the gravestone where I'll lie)
Tell them it's just my bones that died there (tell them it's just my bones that died there)
So save the tears they'll cry (so save the tears they'll cry)

My spirit is still riding somewhere's in this night
And it's these three words that come to me
As I kiss this world good bye

Never say die, never say no
You got to look 'em in the eye and don't let go
When it's your own blood you'll bleed
And your own tears you'll cry
When you're brought up to believe
That it's the strong who survive
Never say die, never say die... (that's right)
