Never To Forget Or To Give Up


Keep those hopes and dreams alive.
Never to forget or to give up.
And, keep them affixed to realize.
Never to forget or to give up.
Hold them,
Never to forget or to give up.
Know them,
Never to forget or to give up.

Keep your wishes like precious gold.
Never to forget or to give up.
And...
Don't be sold into letting them go.
Never to forget or to give up.
Do it,
Never to forget or to give it.
Pursue this,
Never to forget or to give up.

There's no need to look elsewhere,
When everything you've got is there...
And,
In your mind to find in time.

Keep your wishes like precious gold.
Never to forget or to give up.
And, don't be sold into letting them go.
Never to forget or to give up.
Do it,
Never to forget or to give it.
Pursue this,
Never to forget or to give up.
No!
Never to forget or to give up.
Be bold.
Never to forget or to give up.

Keep those hopes and dreams alive.
Never to forget or to give up.
Do it,
Never to forget or to give it.
Pursue this,
Never to forget or to give up.
Hold them,
Never to forget or to give up.
Know them,
Never to forget or to give up.
To not let go!

Hold on!
Never to forget or to give up.
No!
Never to forget or to give up,
To not let go!

Hold on!
Never to forget or to give up,
Your faith.
Never to forget or to give up,
To not let go!
