Day 13: We Won’t Give Up

I was never really a fan of rock.  Sure I listen to rock songs occasionally but I only do so if–and when–the song actually has something to say; a message that is meant to inspire.

The song we have today is from the Christian Rock genre.  Sung by one of my current favorites, The Afters.  “We Won’t Give Up” actually feels sort of like a good theme song for me right now.  It’s feisty and badass and it reminds me a bit of James Durbin (from the previous season (that’s Season 10) of American Idol).

If I had heard this song, like, back when I was still  in college, I would probably be fired up to face everything people throw at me–figuratively, not literally since, if they did try to actually throw something at me, I will duck and retaliate.  You see, college was a pretty tumultuous time for me.  Far too much drama and far too many people trying to pull you down…not that that changed much outside of school, after all, there will always be haters and bullies trying to drag you down.  Whether you use them as fuel or not, that depends on you but one thing you should do is that you should never let them win and the best form of revenge that you can dole out on people like that is to be successful–in your own terms, in your own way, as long as you don’t step on others to do so.

And being successful doesn’t just mean having the coolest car or the biggest house or having loads of money.  Being successful could be attaining your dreams.  And you can do so as long as you don’t give up, do your best and have faith in Christ for through him all things are possible!

Anyways, this is another uplifting song.  Below are the lyrics.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Everywhere, everyday
All we hear is, all we hear is
Wait, it’s not your time
Just get back in line

And they can try to knock us down
We’ve got our feet nailed to the ground
If you want to count us out, go ahead
But it’s not over yet

We won’t back down
We’ve gotta take our best shot
Give it all we got now
We won’t back down
They say we’ll never make it
But we’re gonna take it all the way

We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up, we won’t give up

With the clock running down
We’re gonna leave our fears and failures all behind
This is our time
We’ll reach till we touch the sky

We won’t back down
We’ve gotta take our best shot
Give it all we got now
We won’t back down
They say we’ll never make it
But we’re gonna take it all the way

We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up, we won’t give up

We won’t hold back and we won’t slow down the pace
We wont let go and we won’t call off the chase

We won’t back down
We’ve gotta take our best shot
Give it all we got now
We won’t back down
They say we’ll never make it
But we’re gonna take it all the way

We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up! We won’t give up!
We won’t give up, we won’t give up
We won’t give up! We won’t give up!
We won’t give up, we won’t give up
They say we’ll never make it
But we’re gonna take it all the way
We won’t give up!
