Don't give up the fight

Don't give up the fight

Vs 1
I know that you have suffered in the silence,
(but) I never knew that you would go this far...
I thought I understood your pain...
now memories...are all that remain...
now I look to the stars

Vs 2
I see in others eyes- they too feel the pain
I pray for them, that it won't be too late
I pray for them, that the day will come
when suffering in silence-comes undone
and no-one is to blame

Chorus
Oh, I know well, all that you're feeling
I can validate, the emptiness you feel inside
I'm the proof that life's worth living
so please, don't give up the fight
no, no, don't give up the fight

Vs 3
I know for you, it's hard to see your beauty
all the love that dwells inside of you
Maybe, I can be a friend,
someone you can trust and can depend
to tell you the truth

Vs 4
You should know, that it takes time to get free
to conquer all the conflict in your mind
The tangled web of tragedy,
need not be your final destiny....
happiness you'll find.

Chorus
Oh, I know well, all that you're feeling
I can validate, the emptiness you feel inside
I'm the proof that life's worth living
so please, don't give up the fight
no, no, don't give up the fight


I know that you have suffered...
in the silence,
(but)
I never knew, 
that  
you 
would 
go 
this 
far...

Hi John, this is such a deep sad song, the words so gentle as they paint their images on the mind. Excellent Lyrics as always. You know how to manipulate emotions so well within your work. A most beautiful fave my friend. Have a wonderful Saturday. Your friend always....Mike.

Being a friend, sometimes is all someone needs. Your thoughts hold so many emotions. This is a beautiful song, sad- but tender in its depth. ~ Brandy

Wow, that is daunting and it is the truth. A sad truth expressed, but still very encouraging. Egocide is worth it and it is very hard to come anywhere close to it. But suicide is the kill along the wrong road. Many wishes, Kai
