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 fans 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 fans Don't
give up You're
not the only one Don't
give up You
still have us Don't
give up now We're
proud of who you are Don't
give up 'Cause
I believe there's the a place There's
a place where we belong

    Don't Give Up has given me more hope of being who I am. Listening to this songs lets me know that it is ok to be who u r. This songs helps me to be strong. Don't Give Up gives me the hope that LGBT will soon have the rights that we need & deserve. & this songs inspires me to be the song writer, musician, & person I am today. Thank u Lady GaGa & The Midway State

    I love this song it's so emotional and really meaningful. I wish songs like this were still being made nearly everything has become meaningless and everyone is starting to lose hope. Listening to this song makes me have hope again.
