Worms in the dirt you know how i feel
New moon in the dark sky you know how i feel
stale air in the basement you know how i feel
it’s a new dawn it’s a new day it’s a new life for me
it’s a new dawn it’s a new day it’s a new life for me
oooohhh ooh ooh and i’m feeling brave

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PART I
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{begins quiet volume regular tempo}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit

Quiet and shy my whole life
I avoided confrontation and oposition
With rejection and dejection
I turned and walked away
Shy i would hide or run away

——————————————————
{a little louder; a little faster}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit

Everyone else is having fun
Successful and prosperous
Laughing and playing in the sun
I sit and watch and wonder why
Why can’t that be me

——————————————————
{really loud; really fast}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit

Now my back is against the wall
With no where to run no where to hide
I’m coming out swinging, scratching,
clawing, and screaming
Quiet and shy no more

——————————————————
{loud screaming; really fast}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
NEVER!!! {Loudest Scream}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INSTRUMENTAL
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PART II
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Slow and thoughtful}
Here and now is all i know
Tomorrow is just a word
And yesterday is in the past
I wander from town to town
looking for what i desire
drowning in tears
and burnt by fire
still i search year after year
blown by the wind
my actions i am forced to defend
what i desire i am open for
to shape me and mold me
even desolate and poor
my mind is open so i can see
here i stand ready, waiting,
i am no less than anyone else
ready for the challenge
my fears are conquered
my heart is pounding
sweat from my temples
my mouth waters
courage rages thru my viens
start me up and turn me loose
i am shouting and screaming
never give up never quit
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PART III
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

forget shy and quiet
confrontation rejection dejection
does not matter to me i turn
nowhere i run no more and i
hide from nothing i said nothing

{a little louder; a little faster}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit

——————————————————

Before i move on and go my way
fun i shall have enjoying
success and prosperity
laughing and playing in the sun
this is the new me in the face of life

{really loud; really fast}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit

{loud screaming; really fast}
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
Never give up, Never quit
NEVERRRRRRRRRRRR!!! {Loudest Scream}

i saw it there in front of me
i heard it in my head
just a minute ago it was
with me in my bed

but now it’s gone and
where it went i’ll never know
it’s just gone gone gone
gone on down the road

gone like a ghost
that might never been there
gone like hot buttered toast
where it went i’ll never know

cause it’s gone gone gone
gone on down the road
where it went i’ll never know
cause it’s gone on down the road

so off i go looking for it
trying to find where it went
because i saw it there in front of me
i’ll never forget it so on i go

i want to Take you for a ride
i’ll take you to the mountains
or a trip down the river
i’ll take you for a swim if you want

if you’ll just take me for everything i have
take me and my heart
take me and my desires
just take me for everything i am

i want to take you to paradise
i’ll take you to an oasis of love
or my secret hideaway
i’ll take you to the garden where
it all started so we can start again

take what’s your’s and take what’s mine too
take all you want on the road with you
take it all, the mountains and the sky
take me with you where you go

take me in your thoughts tonight
take me into your arms tonight
take me into your heart tonight
Just take me and hold me tight

I Want to Believe

I Want to Believe

Written by Donovan L. Green,

i want to believe we can clothe the poor
i want to believe that we can feed the hungry
i want to believe that we can fix the problems
i want to believe it’s all going to be ok

but in the end the only things i believe are
that the sun will rise
the morning dew is wet
and the sky is blue
i believe in the song of the whippoorwill
and i believe in moonlight walks

i want to believe religion is good
i want to believe peace follows war
i want to believe that we can fix the problems
i want to believe it’s all going to be ok

but in the end the only things i believe are
we need the birds and bees
and all the flowers and trees
i believe the grass is cool under my feet
and i believe in gazing at the clouds

i want to believe that politicians care
i want to believe that preachers are clean
i want to believe that we can fix the problems
i want to believe it’s all going to be ok

but in the end the only things i believe are
that clean water and fresh air is good
that sunshine on my skin is healthy
that afternoon thunderstorms are normal
and that walking in the rain is relaxing

i want to be like everyone else
and believe that my vote counts
i want to be like everyone else
and believe that politicians care
i want to be like everyone else
and believe peace follows war

but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what i see is love in people
caring and sharing despite of it all

i want to be like everyone else
and believe in heaven and angels
i want to be like everyone else
and believe in men of god
i want to be like everyone else
and believe in a higher purpose

but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what i see is faith in people
striving and persisting despite of it all

i want to be like everyone else
and believe technology is good for all
i want to be like everyone else
and believe science can solve it all
i want to be like everyone else
and believe medicine can cure it all

but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what i see is joy in suffering
hoping and believing despite of it all

i want to be like everyone else
i just want to be like everyone else
no matter how hard i try though
in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see

i want to be like everyone else
and believe in watching tv
i want to be like everyone else
and give my life to youtube videos
i want to be like everyone else
and entwine reality with social media

but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what i see is bliss in distraction
working and living despite of it all

i want to be like everyone else
and believe in eating out
i want to be like everyone else
and believe in frozen microwave food
i want to be like everyone else
and believe in eating anything called food

but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what i see is people sick
illness and disease despite of it all

i keep on wanting to be like everyone else
i keep on believing that believing is right
but in the end i am lonely me
and i can only believe what i see
and what I see only I can see.

The end.
