I've been away for a while sick in the hospital. One place in the world that the smell alone of makes me feel isolated and alone. I was too sick to lift my head up, and the 10's didn't have any mercy for me. I have a new appreciation for being able to at least sit up during an attack. While I was there a few times I prayed that God would just take me. I'm too much of a wimp to take myself out. This song started to come to my mind. It made me remember that all of you are here fighting and going through the same pain. There are people that I really love and care about here. (p)So go ahead and think i've lost it due to high fevers, but I found the lyrics to this song that kept me hanging on. I wanted to share the lyrics with you. I especially wanted to share them with whoever is out there hurting, feeling alone, and like they can't take anymore. I put astericks by the words that are meant for you. To sum it all up, "Don't give up, because you have friends here, we are proud of you for fighting so hard,and we need you."
ok, I'm done.

Don't Give Up- Peter Gabriel

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
