    I made sure that my kids knew the lyrics to this one.

    .
    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 name, I've changed my face
    But no one wants you when you lose

    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not beaten yet
    Don't 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

    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up
    We don't need much of anything
    Don't give up
    'Cause somewhere there's 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
    Don't give up
    Please don't 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 river's flowing
    That river's flowing
    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs

    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not the only one
    Don't give up
    No reason to be ashamed
    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up now
    We're proud of who you are
    Don't give up
    You know it's never been easy
    Don't give up
    'Cause I believe there's a place
    There's a place where we belong

    Songwriters: Peter Gabriel

    John got it right.

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today... Aha-ah...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    "Liar"

    I won't ever leave
    If you want me to stay
    Nothing you could do
    That could turn me away

    Hanging on anyway
    Believing the things you say
    Being the fool

    You've taken my life
    So take my soul
    That's what you said
    And I believed it all

    I want to be with you
    Long as you want me to
    But don't move away

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar

    We have seen no night
    We have seen no day
    If I ever leave
    Would you want me to stay?

    You can believe in me
    I won't be leaving
    I won't let you go

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar
    Liar

    You've taken my life
    So take my soul
    That's what you said
    But who are we to know?

    I want to be with you
    Long as you want me to
    But don't move away

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar

    Winter in America

    From the Indians who welcomed the pilgrims
    And to the buffalo who once ruled the plains
    Like the vultures circling beneath the dark clouds
    Looking for the rain
    Looking for the rain


    Just like the cities staggered on the coastline
    Living in a nation that just can't stand much more
    Like the forest buried beneath the highway
    Never had a chance to grow
    Never had a chance to grow


    And now it's winter
    Winter in America
    Yes and all of the healers have been killed
    Or sent away, yeah
    But the people know, the people know
    It's winter
    Winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    'Cause nobody knows what to save
    Save your soul, Lord knows
    From Winter in America


    The Constitution
    A noble piece of paper
    With free society
    Struggled but it died in vain
    And now Democracy is ragtime on the corner
    Hoping for some rain
    Looks like it's hoping
    Hoping for some rain


    And I see the robins
    Perched in barren treetops
    Watching last-ditch racists marching across the floor
    But just like the peace sign that vanished in our dreams
    Never had a chance to grow
    Never had a chance to grow


    And now it's winter
    It's winter in America
    And all of the healers have been killed
    Or been betrayed
    Yeah, but the people know, people know
    It's winter, Lord knows
    It's winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save
    Save your souls
    From Winter in America


    And now it's winter
    Winter in America
    And all of the healers done been killed or sent away
    Yeah, and the people know, people know
    It's winter
    Winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows, nobody knows
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save

    I am just a poor boy
    Though my story's seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

    Gold Teeth II

    Who are these children
    Who scheme and run wild
    Who speak with their wings
    And the way that they smile
    What are the secrets
    They trace in the sky
    And why do you tremble
    Each time they ride by


    Throw out your gold teeth
    And see how they roll
    The answer they reveal
    Life is unreal


    Who are these strangers
    Who pass through the door
    Who cover your action
    And go you one more
    If you're feeling lucky
    You best not refuse
    It's your game the rules
    Are your own win or lose


    Throw out your gold teeth
    And see how they roll
    The answer they reveal
    Life is unreal

    Becker & Fagen
