The young think us old foggies don't understand them. However we do. I could post a LOT of depressing or punk songs from our era. Instead, I would rather post a song of hope. Not Obama hope, I see you guys, but real belief and hope.
This song is about hope and dreams when America started falling apart in the early 80's (actually the late 70's) . You can give up, or try harder. This song helped me try harder and I was lucky and it worked for the girl, job, kids, etc. I hope it helps you.
