"Never give up"

Wendy Mitchell 1981 (West Liberty)

Never give up the heart keeps beating a beat in my chest
I'm in my bed thinking of giving up but my heart tells me I have more time
I keep my head up looking at the bloody moon that falls in the night streams
The night wolves sing in the night glistering stars above the dark moon
As the moon faded away at the misty night  as the flys start buzzing in the night trying find rest
The flys start falling into the stoney roads as we walk by the rocky road the flys go and find a dead  body to suck the blood from the dead
Never give up
Never give up
All you have is your beating heart for the love you have to find again so your heart will be strong again please drink the blood from my acking heart so I can live again
Never give up
Never give up
