I will ‘Never Give Up’ listening to this song

If there’s one song that I’ve got blasting on repeat at the moment, it would be this one.

Sia’s new track, ‘Never Give Up’, features in the Lion film soundtrack, and when I heard it during the movie’s closing credits, I couldn’t help but shed a tear.

Mirroring the film’s plotline which sees Saroo Brierley (played by Dev Patel) retrace his Indian roots after living in Australia for over two decades, the song’s lyrics are all about determination, perseverance and having faith in one’s abilities.

The lyric video has also been released, with two children running through a railway station, reminiscent of Saroo and his brother Guddu’s journey in the flick.

Check out the video and the lyrics below, and try not to bop along. I dare you. The struggle will be real.

Lyrics: NEVER GIVE UP (SIA)

I’ve battled demons that won’t let me sleep
Called to the sea but she abandoned me

But I won’t never give up, no, never give up, no, no
No, I won’t never give up, no, never give up, no, no

And I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh
I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh

I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh

Oh yeah, I’m haunted by the distant past
Called to the skies but she was overcast

But I won’t never give up, no, never give up, no, no
No, I won’t never give up, no, never give up, no, no

And I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh
I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh

I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh

Never give up, never give up
Never give up, never give up
No, no, oooh

And I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh
I won’t let you get me down
I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground
Oh, never give up, no, never give up no, no, oh

I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
I’ll find my way, find my way home, oh, oh, oh
