I remember when you took a stand
With the pearl of wisdom in your hand
And a soul of desire
You held your own against the world
A lion's heart in a little girl
So unafraid of the fire
But those days don't last
Sweet dreams die fast
A stumble when you walk on the wire
When all your friends
Start giving in
The flames are burning higher and higher

(chorus)
Don't give up, Andrea
Got the whole world at your feet
Just keep on - holding on
This is where you need to be

All the days that you've been spending
Spinning while your heart's descending
Like a stone in the ocean
Sometimes when you think the world is ending
It's really just a new beginning
The other side of emotion
But I've seen your eyes -no compromise
When you set your mind on a matter
Be strong through the tears
And your sight will clear
You're gonna get what you're after

Don't give up, Andrea
Got the whole world at your feet
Just keep on - holding on
This is where you need to be

Don't give up, Andrea
Got the whole world at your feet
Just keep on - holding on
This is where you need to be

Don't be surprised when the road divides
Just take the one less traveled by

Don't give up, Andrea
Got the whole world at your feet
Just keep on - holding on
This is where you need to be

Don't give up, Andrea
Got the whole world at your feet
Just keep on - holding on
This is where you need to be

Don't give up, Andrea (Andrea)
Got the whole world at your feet (I know you're gonna make it)
Just keep on - holding on(Andre-a)
This is where you need to be

Don't give up, Andrea (Andrea)
Got the whole world at your feet (I know you're gonna make it)
Just keep on - holding on (Andre-a)
This is where you need to be
