never say die lyrics – sammy hagar

fight for my freedom, i don’t need a gun or a knife
i just need some open sp*ce to run for my life
the ground is sinking and the walls closing in
when i get to the bottom, i get up, start all over again

just p*ssin’ time until the big one
as we leave it all behind
and move on up to a brighter future
it’s no easy climb

but i’ll never say die (die, die, die)
i’ll never say die (die, die, die)

my mom and dad never understood
compared to their problems, you know, mine looked good
they screamed, “where’s the money? and where’s all the love
and where’s the help from the man up above?”

i never gave up my religion
as i did my teenage time
i said, “when i’m of age, i wanna walk out smilin’
maybe i’ll cry”

but i’ll never say die (die, die, die)
i’ll never say die (die, die, die) ohhh

(ooh, never say die) i’ll never say
(ooh, never say die) no i will never, never, never say
(ooh, never say die) oh, never say die
(ooh, never say die)

two generations i’ve been through
’69 was heavy, yeah, but what did it prove?
just a bunch of hippies could become businessmen
and burn a body, a flag and a couple of friends

now as we enter 1980
we’re modern humans in a modern time
so all you children of the sixties
it’s no easy climb

but don’t ever say die (die, die, die)
don’t you ever say die (die, die, die) oh

(ooh never say die)
(ooh never say die) just stand there, baby!
(ooh never say die) oh, never say, never say die
(ooh never say die)
