Alicia Keys

Don't Give Up (ft. Bono)

Play

Bono:
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

Alicia:
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

Bono:
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

Alicia:
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

Bono:
'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

Alicia:
Don't give up
'cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not the only one
Don't give up
There's no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still You still have us
I believe you and me there's somewhere
Is a place where we belong
