    Lyrics

    Over time I've come to feel
    That everything must come apart it seems
    From the little child to the man of power
    From the beggar to the angel of my dreams

    From the thinnest thread we are sewn together
    From the finest string we dangle over time
    From the highest wire do we walk through fire
    Should our balance ever falter, should our steps be unaligned

    Such a big storm, yeah
    Such a strong wind blowing
    Such a loud voice calling
    For me to cross the line

    But I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give up the ghost
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up

    'Cause I haven't the strength to hold out too long
    If we both hold on together we can make each other strong

    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh

    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all

    Drop the mask take away the house
    And forget about the income and the car
    We're all the same underneath our shell
    We've all been to hell and we know what it's like

    And we've shared each other's sins
    We all know what it's like to give up the fight
    We've all been ashamed at one time or another
    We all have dreams and nightmares too

    When it all comes down we'll look out for each other
    (No one else will)
    But when I hear the call, when I feel the thirst
    When the catcher comes to take my soul
    He's gonna have to fight me first

    'Cause I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give up the ghost
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up

    'Cause I haven't the strength to hold out too long
    If we both hold on together we can make each other strong

    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh

    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all we're flesh 'n' blood
    After all

    Every cloud has a silver lining
    And every soul is tender to the touch
    We are made of stone, we are made of steel
    And we're all the same when we return to dust

    But when I hear the call, yeah, when I feel the thirst
    When the catcher comes to take my soul
    He's gonna have to fight me first

    'Cause I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give up the ghost
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up

    'Cause I haven't the strength to hold out too long
    If we both hold on together we can make each other strong

    Give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up

    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up

    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up
    I'm not gonna give up the ghost
    No, not gonna give it up
