"Down But Not Yet Out" as written by and Lawrence Hayward....
I was feeling the strain of twenty years
I was saying well this is all there is
I was seeing my blood it dripped like tears
I was counting the cost of all my fears

So you wanted to be like me to be seen
So you wanted to rise from your darkest dream
So you wanted to be the things that I've been

Well let me tell you something
It's not what it seems
Let me give you advice
Come on now hang on to your dreams

I was down but not yet out you see
I was riding the road to victory
I was sailing the stars of secrecy
And I was wearing the mask of honesty

Don't you know you can stop and start it again
If you thought about time then it would be your friend
Don't you know that the sword is the same as the pen

And in your world of trouble
Where nothing goes right
I can give you advice
If you won't think once
Then baby think twice

So you see where I stand and where I fall
So you see what I've got and that's for all
Can you see this big man ain't so tall?
You have to keep your feet down on the floor

Do you still want to be like me to be seen?
Do you still want want to rise from your darkest dream?
Do you still want to be the things that I've been?

And let me tell you something
It's not what it seems
Let me give you advice
Come on now hang onto your dreams
Hang onto your dreams
Hang onto your dreams
