Don't get worn down
It's much too easy to
Be defeated
Stand strong and proud
And let them know
That you won't be beaten
And if you start to waver
Or you start to shake
Just stand up and be counted
Don't begin to break

(Chorus)

So if you think you'll weaken
Resolution overthrown
Remember all we've said
And you are not alone

(Chorus)
