Never Surrender

Album: Never Surrender (1983)
Charted: 23
  • Out in the streets inspiration comes hard
    The joker in the deck keeps handin' me his card
    Smilin' friendly he takes me in
    Then breaks my back in a game I can't win
    Jivin', hustiln', what's it all about?
    Everybody always wants the east way out
    Thirty golden pieces for the Judas kiss
    What's a nice boy doin' in a place like this?

    [Chorus]
    Never Surrender - keep your dreams alive
    Never Surrender - hold your head up high

    Modern apathetics; you got plenty of nothing to say
    Some are born to follow: some will make their own way
    Today you found a hero tomorrow you'll forget
    You're lookin' for convenient truth you haven't found it yet
    You don't make commitments no time for regrets
    Easy come and easy go and easy to forget
    You don't ever take responsibility
    Don't you know that part of you is part of me

    [Chorus]

    Never Surrender, it's easier said than done
    But you go to finish what's already begun
    Never, that's forever, seems like such a long time
    But I only got one life to live - It's gonna be mine

    Never Surrender - we cannot be denied
    Never Surrender - spread your wings and fly Writer/s: GIL MOORE, MIKE LEVINE, RIK EMMETT
