Don’t Give Up The Fight

Their run down motel room

felt like a stone cold tomb

They were spending some time

on the desperate side of life

So far removed from paradise

A little girl looked in her daddy’s eyes

He told her “baby girl we’re gonna be alright,

if we don’t give up the fight

Lost Memory

They’d spent fifty eight years together,

they’d both grown old

He & the woman he’d vowed to have and hold,

There were pictures spread out on his bedroom floor

of the places they’d been, & people they knew before

He was showing them to her, hoping something would click

There was no denying it, for months now she’d been sick

There were times she didn’t even know her name

It tore up his heart seeing her that way,

Hellfire and Rain

They lost a child, in 1993, it shattered the family

You know they tried to ease their pain

but nothing was ever quite the same

When they laid him in the grave

they hadn’t even picked his name

Feels like they’ve been through hellfire and rain

Everything that could go wrong,

seems like it’s come their way

Yet somewhere, they find the strength

to carry on just one more day
