Verse I
She was thirty-four and workin' in a diner
Thought she'd left all her hopes and dreams behind her
Waitin' tables in BFE ain't no kinda life
A reflection in a window, starin' at a traffic light
When she gets home she sings in the mirror
And the angels stop singin' so they can hear her

Don't let nobody tell ya this can't be done
Don't let nobody make ya walk when ya wanna run
Don't let nobody change your direction, stay the course and keep the faith
Don't let nobody get satisfaction from watchin' ya fall on your face
Any dream worth havin' is a dream worth believin'
Look inside yourself for what the dreamweaver's weavin
One step at a time
Keep your head held high
don'tcha look back
And don'tcha never ever ever say die

Verse II
He was swingin' a hammer
In the mid-day sun
The lines in his face spoke of all the work he's done
At home there's a boy with a ball and glove
And a woman who wants nothin' more than his his love
He'll find a better way as he swallows his pride
Won't take no for an answer, he won't be denied

Repeat Chorus

don'tcha look back
And don'tcha never ever ever say die
