Do you give up now?
Is it all over for you?
This is it
No more trying
No more effort
Don't you see it?
The horizon over the hill
don't you hear it?
The applause behind the curtain
Don't you taste it?
The sweet juice inside the fruit
But you're giving up
You're letting go
No more desire
No more potential
Don't you know what you're losing?
More than your dignity, I can assure you
Don't you know what your're accepting?
Nothing less than failure

Still you're giving up
You're retiring too young
No more dreams.
No more hopes.
Don't you want
More than this?

Don't give up.
