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}

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 have had a couple of close friends short term, but otherwise i have spent my whole life alone. My parents distanced themselves from me but not my siblings. Loneliness happens when we are not acceptable for who we are. Not being accepted is a thick heavy shroud that is impossible to lift without being accepted. i have come close to giving up a few times but somehow i fight on for the hope that someday i will meet others, like me, and they will accept me like i accept them. littlegreenthing.com has been many things, but now it is another attempt to connect with others that feel the same weight that i do.
