We busted out of class had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a three-minute record
That we ever learned in school
Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound
I can feel my heart begin to pound
You say you're tired and you just want to close
Your eyes and follow your dreams down

CHORUS:
We made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold
We swore blood brothers against the wind
I'm ready to grow young again
And hear yur sister's voice calling us home
Acroos the open yards
Believin' we could cut someplace of our own
With these drums and these guitars

CHORUS:
We made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Blood brother in the stormy night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights gro dim
The walls of my room are closing in
But it's good to see your smiling face
And to hear your voice again
We could sleep in the twilight
By the river bed
With a wide open country in our hearts
And these romantic dreams in our heads

CHORUS:
We made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender
