English term or phrase: don´t throw your hand
It´s in the song "Everybody Hurts", by REM

"Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand.
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone."

I guess it means "no bajes los brazos, no te dejes caer2? But is it a fixed expression?
Thanks a lot!!
