About the song
In memory of Anne Williams, a tireless campaigner for justice. May she rest in peace.
Lyrics
You never gave up, and you never gave in
You showed the country what it meant to be a mother
You always knew the truth about what happened to your lad
The lies, the cover ups, the justice that you never had
But you never gave up, and you never gave in.

You were always strong, you were always there
And you refused to listen when they said “it’s over”
And when some of us got tired and weary of the world’s reaction
Your example served to energise us all to take more action
Always strong, you were always there

When I need to know what love is I just need to think of you
A mother’s love that kept me fighting on
Your constant search for answers to reveal what was true
A lifetime spent in honouring your son

You will always be, ‘cos you always were
The strength for many who might otherwise just crumble
Now the truth is finally known although the justice comes too late
Your body’s strength betrayed you after carrying our weight
But you will always be, ‘cos you always were
You were always strong, you were always there
You never gave up, so we will never gave in
