I know your scared
And I know what you've been through
Look in my eyes
Can you see I'm frightened too
So lets take one step at a time

I won't give up
That's one thing I swer will be true
For its said by the wise
Keep your eyes on the prize
And I've got my eyes on you

its hard to trust
When you've been misunderstood
But starting now
Well be treated like we should
So lets take this right til its true

I won't give up
That's one thing I swer will be true
And I won't give in
I'm stronger than they ever knew
Don't try to run
Cause ill just be there when you do
For its said by the wise
Keep your eyes on the prize
And I've got my eyes on you

I won't give up
That's one thing I swer will be true
For its said by the wise




Keep your eyes on the prize
And I kept my eyes on you
