Lyrics

NEVER GIVE UP

Written By: Cris Gunther,Othoniel Joseph

NEVER GIVE UP
(Cris Gunther/ Othoniel Joseph)

Verse 1:
It’s been a long, long time
Since I felt that strong hunger inside
My revolution’s on the rise
This round, I won’t be denied

Cause I’m hangin' tough
And I’ve had enough
Of listenin’ to bullshit and lies
I’m climbing the mountain of love
Bitch, I called your bluff
I know who I am, step aside

Chorus:
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m in and I’m in to win it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I know what I want, I’m gonna get it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m through with hidin’ & pretendin’!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m Never Givin’ Up!

Verse 2:
Shattered, broken-hearted dreams
Can’t bear, to hear the voice of freedom sing
Criticisms, to make you feel insecure and weak
Gotta fight like you’re takin’ the last breath of your life

Society, lovers, friends and families
Always telling you, you can’t do that
Well, devil, it’s time that you know
That my soul can’t be sold
Turn that bitch-of-a-lie of ‘No, you can't’
Into- ‘Yes, you can!’

Chorus:
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m in and I’m in to win it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I know what I want, I’m gonna get it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m through with hidin’ & pretendin’!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m Never Givin’ Up!

Bridge:
Here’s my big, white ass- you can kiss it!
Screw you- I’m pullin’ my pants back up you’re going to miss it!
The dirty truth- 69 my rhyme and milk it!
Two 2 tango, 1 to win...

She can’t go to heaven cause she’s not a Christian!
And, he can’t be the president cause he’s a black man!
And, they can’t marry ‘cause they’re not one man and one woman!
Success is the sweetest revenge...
Sing!

Chorus:
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m in and I’m in to win it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I know what I want, I’m gonna get it!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m through with hidin’ & pretendin’!
Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never-Never- Give Up!
I’m Never Givin’ Up!

Outro:
Time is up
I gotta go
One last thing that you should know
(I’m in and I’m in to win it!)
Everything you did to me
You already done to you
(I know what I want, I’m gonna get up!)
I’m not afraid to walk alone
I’m Never Givin’ Up!
