Some Days are Hard

I started to write a poem to you,
And my pen ran dry.
My mouth ran dry.
My heart pounded.
"There is terrible significance in this,"
I thought.
I ran and found another pen
And wrote...
Not easily...
But I wrote.
"See, everything is still all right,"
I said to me.
Why didn't you call from Los Angeles today?

Did you ever manage to read any of the Puddle Lane books to the end?

There is thunder in our hearts
Is there too much for the ones we love
I tell you we both matter
You and me
It's you and me...

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail
No fight left, or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no-one wants you when you lose
Dont give up
Cause you have friends
Dont give up
You're not beaten yet
Dont give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn
Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground
Dont give up
You still have us
Dont give up
We dont need much of anything
Dont give up
cause somewhere theres a place
Where we belong
Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough, you can fall back on us
Dont give up
Please dont give up

Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes, down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That rivers flowing
That rivers flowing
Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs
Dont give up
Cause you have friends
Dont give up
You're not the only one
Dont give up
No reason to be ashamed
Dont give up
You still have us
Dont give up now
We're proud of who you are
Dont give up
You know its never been easy
Dont give up
Cause I believe theres the a place
Theres a place where we belong
