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 friends
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
I never thought that I could be affected
I thought that we would be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

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
There's a place where we belong

'Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
I'm gonna 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 friends
Don't give up now we're proud of who you are
Don't give up you know it's never been easy
Don't give up
'Cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong
