[audio:VariousArtists/pj-SongForDiane.mp3] 2010
Today you woke up to a perplexing travesty
The world turned on its side with the future on its knees
But don’t give up, there are more songs left to sing

Some experts started chanting stoic “realities”
This life’s not worth advancing that you would not concede
You don’t give up when at stake is everything

For everyone knows the future
While everyone pans the past
And everyone cries for everyone who dies
They lament that life couldn’t last
Though everything is a challenge
And everything takes so long
And everything shouts “there is no easy way out”
What won’t kill us will sure make us strong

They tried to write your swan song
Your imminent defeat
You fought back with a vengeance
Those words they had to eat
You won’t give up
While the movie has got some more scenes

In everywhere see the future
And ever-remembered pasts
And never forsake every step that you’ll take
To every lot that you shall cast
And everyday make it happen
And everyday chase that dream
And everyday cry that you will never cease to try
When redemption is your ultimate theme

Tomorrow is a new day, another chance to be
Another move towards freedom and opportunity
The new girl, she’s waiting in the wings
She won’t give up
While there’s still more songs to sing

  1. Song for Diane by Mr. P.J. Heckman is amazing, rather amazing and mesmerizing. The vocals match the vibe of the song perfectly and the harmonies behind the soloist adds depth to the piece. The lyrics of this song has a wonderful meaning.
