Dedicated to all the people who could have the temptation to give up, on the chessboard or in their life...

 

 

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, never thought that I could be affected
Thought that we'd be 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 any more
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 friends
Don't give up, you're not the only one
Don't give up, no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up, you still have us
Don't give up now, we're proud of who you are
Don't give up, you know its never been easy
Don't give up 'cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong.
