Peter Gabriel   Lyrics

Don't Give Up

Solsbury Hil 

Don't Give Up

in this proud land we grew up strong 
we were wanted all along 
I was taught to fight, taught to win 
I never thought I could fail 

no fight left or so it seems 
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted 
I've changed my face, I've changed my name 
but no one wants you when you lose 

don't give up 
'cos you have friends 
don't give up 
you're not beaten yet 
don't give up 
I know you can make it good 

though I saw it all around 
never thought I could be affected 
thought that we'd be the last to go 
it is so strange the way things turn 

drove the night toward my home 
the place that I was born, on the lakeside 
as daylight broke, I saw the earth 
the trees had burned down to the ground 
don't give up 
you still have us 
don't give up 
we don't need much of anything 
don't give up 
'cause somewhere there's a place 
where we belong 

rest your head 
you worry too much 
it's going to be alright 
when times get rough 
you can fall back on us 
don't give up 
please don't give up 

'got to walk out of here 
I can't take anymore 
going to stand on that bridge 
keep my eyes down below 
whatever may come 
and whatever may go 
that river's flowing 
that river's flowing 

moved on to another town 
tried hard to settle down 
for every job, so many men 
so many men no-one needs 

don't give up 
'cause you have friends 
don't give up
you're not the only one 
don't give up 
no reason to be ashamed 
don't give up 
you still have us 
don't give up now 
we're proud of who you are 
don't give up 
you know it's never been easy 
don't give up 
'cause I believe there's the a place 
there's a place where we belong
 

Solsbury Hil

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
I just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
"Son," he said "Grab your things,
I've come to take you home."

To keepin' silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
"Till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" he said "Grab your things
I've come to take you home."
Back home.

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
they've come to take me home."
