Never give up

Well I came down from the mountain
And I came across the sea
And I made my way through the valley
And I heard what you said to me:

“Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by your side”

Well times they came a-troublin’
And times they came so bad
Hell’s riders came on chariots
But I remembered what you said:

“Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by your side”

Well first I lost my reason
And then I lost my mind
And when my eyes they opened
I saw that I was blind

But I never gave up
And I never died
And no-one nor nothin’
Did make me cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by my side

Hear me my darlin’
Give me your heart
The time has come for lovin’
It’s time to make a start

Well the road has many ruins
And the road is very long
And somewhere way down that lonely road
I heard this angel song:

“Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by your side”

Well I believe in miracles
And I believe in truth
And I believe it’s possible
To love God without any proof

“Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by your side”

Well my good friend the doctor
And my good friend the law
They told me there weren’t any angels
And then one flew in through the door

Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos there’s an angel by your side

Come fly with me my darlin’
Come fly with me above
The time has come for mercy
The time has come for love

First one anointed angel
Then brothers by the score
Then a thousand sacred sisters
And then a hundred thousand more, said:

“Never give up
And never you die
And no-one nor nothing
Can make you cry
‘Cos we are here by your side”
