Don’t Give Up Lyrics. 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 face, I've changed my name But no one wants you when. 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. Don’t Give Up is the fifth single released from Peter Gabriel’s 1986 album So. The song is a duet with Kate Bush, who’d sang backup on Gabriel’s third album, commonly known as Melt. Peter Gabriel’s original choice for the duet was Dolly Parton, who turned the offer down. The song is inspired by the Depression-era photography of Dorothea Lange.

The official Don't Give Up video. Directed by Godley and Creme. A standout track from Peter's fifth studio album and the first one to have a proper title: So was a watershed release in his career. Its marriage of the artistic and the commercial made for an indisputable success, with the album quickly sitting atop the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Aside from some intriguing collaborations – with Laurie Anderson on This Is The Picture, Kate Bush on Don’t Give Up and Youssou N’Dour on In Your Eyes – it was the unity of singer, band and producer that made So such a crucial.

I consider "Don& Give Up" as one of Peter Gabriel& best songs, and this song has one of the best lyrics he has written. The lyrics talk about unemployment, and this theme is very well treated with very human lyrics about how a man tries to resolve this situation in his life supported by his wife and family. There is a live versionof "In Your Eyes" from the "PoV" live concert video which is great, recorded in Athens in October 1987.
