Don't Give Up

Don't Give Up

Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush.

Don’t give up                                                              Geef niet op.

Kate Bush - Don't give up (duet with Peter Gabriel)

English                                                                                                   Dutch

In this proud land we grew up strong                                 In dit trotse land groeiden we sterk op
we were wanted all along                                                    Iedereen vond ons fijn.
I was taught to fight, taught to win                                      Ik leerde te vechten, om te winnen.
I never thought I could fail                                                   Ik dacht nooit te falen.

no fight left or so it seems                                                    Er was geen gevecht meer, zo leek te.
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted                     Ik ben een man die al zijn dromen verloor.
I've changed my face, I've changed my name                     Ik veranderde van gezicht, van naam.
but no one wants you when you lose                                  Niemand houdt van een verliezer.

don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
'cos you have friends                                                                            Want je hebt vrienden.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
you're not beaten yet                                                                            Je bent nog niet verslagen.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
I know you can make it good                                                               Ik weet dat je het goed kunt maken.

though I saw it all aroound                                                  Ik zag het over om mij heen.

never thought thought I could be affected                         Nooit dacht ik dat het mij zou treffen
thought that we'd be the last to go                                      Dacht dat wij de laatste waren om te gaan.
it is so strange the way things turn                                     Het is zo vreemd hoe het kan gaan.

drove the night toward my home                                        Reed s’nachts naar mijn thuis
the place that I was born, on the lakeside                De plaats waar ik was geboren, aan de kant van het meer.
as daylight broke, I saw the earth                                       Bij zonsopgang zag ik de aarde
the trees had burned down to the ground                         De bomen waren tot de grond afgebrand.

don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
you still have us                                                                    Je hebt ons nog altijd.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
we don't need much of anything                                         Wij hebben niet veel nodig.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
'cause somewhere there's a place                                       Want er is een plek
where we belong                                                                   Waar wij thuis horen.

rest your head                                                                                       Leg je hoofd te rusten
you worry too much                                                                             Je maakt je teveel zorgen.
it's going to be alright                                                                           Het komt allemaal goed.
when times get rough                                                                           In moeilijke tijden
you can fall back on us                                                                          Kun je op ons rekenen.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
please don't give up                                                                              Alsjeblieft, geef niet op.

'got to walk out of here                                                                        Ik moet er vandoor gaan.
I can't take anymore                                                                             Ik kan er niet meer tegen.
going to stand on that bridge                                                               Ik ga op die brug staan.
keep my eyes down below                                                   En ik kijk naar beneden.
whatever may come                                                                              Wat er ook mag komen,
and whatever may go                                                                           Wat er ook mag gaan.
that river's flowing                                                                                Deze rivier stroomt.
that river's flowing                                                                                Deze rivier stroomt.

moved on to another town                                                   Ik ging naar een andere stad
tried hard to settle down                                                      Probeerde me daar thuis te voelen.
for every job, so many men                                                  Voor elke baan, zoveel mensen.
so many men no-one needs                                                 Zoveel mensen zijn niet nodig.

don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
'cause you have friends                                                        Omdat je vrienden hebt.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
you're not the only one                                                                         Je bent niet de enige
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
no reason to be ashamed                                                     Geen reden om schaamte te voelen.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
you still have us                                                                    Je hebt altijd nog ons.
don't give up now                                                                  Geef het nu niet op.
we're proud of who you are                                                 We zijn trots op wie je bent.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
you know it's never been easy                                                             Je weet dat het nooit makkelijk is geweest.
don't give up                                                                                          Geef niet op.
'cause I believe there's the a place                                      Want ik geloof dat er een plek voor ons is.
there's a place where we belong                                         Er is een plek waar wij thuishoren.

Ann Change and Lost
25 May 2017
Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably
Ann Clinic Rules
15 April 2017
good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
