Guilt wears,

Me down,

I wear shame,

Like a crown,

Lies cloud,

The truth,

I'm worn out,

Like my shoes...

But I can't,

Give,

Up,

Yes I can't,

Give,

Up.

I seen to many,

Go astray,

Day,

By day,

By day,

So many dreams,

Are.. lost,

To many hopes,

Get.. tossed...

But I can't,

Give,

Up,

Yes I can't,

Give,

Up.

To many tears,

I have shed,

Over the living,

And the dead,

To many have,

Lost their way,

Why won't you,

Just stay...

But I can't,

Give,

Up,

Yes I can't,

Give,

Up.

So much joy,

Engulfed by sin,

So many things,

That I think,

To many friends,

Are.. gone,

To many days,

Are to long...

But I can't,

Give,

Up,

Yes I can't,

Give,

Up.

I'm to proud,

To.. cry,

All I can do,

Is.. sigh,

I hold the pain,

In my eyes,

But like the Phoenix,

I will rise...

But I can't,

Give,

Up,

No I won't,

Give,

Up,

So I won't,

Give,

Up,

Because I can't,

Give,

Up.
