"It's Not Over Yet" - a Song Dedicated to a Lyme Warrior

This song is so touching and beautiful. I urge you to share it with those you know who are fighting any battle, but especially with others who have Lyme Disease. Just knowing that a song was written especially for us makes it feel more powerful to me when I listen to it. It gives me that extra boost when I find it difficult to find the physical and mental strength to actively keep fighting. 

I am a Lyme Warrior. This is my fight song. I will not give up and I will defeat this disease.

Comments From Alabama Lyme Disease:

"In this video Luke and Joel Smallbone, the brothers behind for King & Country, discuss the inspiration behind one of the songs on their soon to be released album "Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong".
The song "It's Not Over Yet" was written as an anthem of encouragement for their younger sister Libby, 22, who contracted Lyme disease, a tick-borne bacterial illness, a decade ago while working at a summer camp (she continues to suffer the lasting effects from the disease)."

Give the song a listen and read the lyrics posted below. Keep on fighting, it's not over yet, lymies.






Lyrics to "Its Not Over Yet"

They are inside your head
You got a voice that says
You won't get past this one
You won't win your freedom

It's like a constant war
And you want to settle that score
But you're bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest heart

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah

Oh, game set match
It's time to put it in your past, oh
Feel the winter leavin'
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart (Here we are)
Cheers to a brand new start (Here we are)
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
Oh no never give up (Here we are)
Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
We will never give up (Here we are)

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah
