"Don't Give Up (Feat. Natalie Bassingthwaighte)" as written by Tamara Janine Hyler, Shaye Smith and Alexis Ebert....
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
'cause 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 wed 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
Its 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 rivers flowing
That rivers 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
You still have us
Don't give up now
Were proud of who you are
Don't give up
You know its never been easy
Don't give up
Cause I believe there's the a place
There's a place where we belong

    General Commenti reckon its about the farmers and the depression they are suffering due to the drought. especially the bit about moving to another town looking for a job, but can't settle down. poor buggers are doing it hard. good to see shannon and natalie & co doing their bit. if only the rest of australia would look to the suffering in their own backyard. great song, very moving.
