Too many years of heart ache and bad luck.  

Had me feeling drained, hopeless and so stuck.  

When i finally stepped back, i thought,

i can do better than that.  

 

CHORUS

I'm not gonna fade away, give in easy

strong willed and here to stay

i'm not gonna fade away

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh   not gonna fade away

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh   not gonna fade away

 

i'm getting better with life's ups and life's downs,

otherwise life would be boring and burned out

try to learn from mistakes,     i make,

might get it right one of these days

 

cause i'm ... not gonna fade away

 

BRIDGE   

 

look at all the little things they all add up,    to big things, bad things where  i get hung up

time for new, time for fresh, time to start         again....


CHORUS
