[Song/Lyrics] We gotta keep fighting on~

I was watching First Wives’ Club with the parental units when this song came on. It was the ending song, and I remembered it because it was haunting. Not just haunting for the vocals, but the way she sings it. It’s a wonderfully empowering song, and a poignant reminder for me.

That in the days when I need strength, it is there, within me. That I am in control of my own destiny. That there is no one else responsible for the choices I make than I am. Here, have the song. It’s Over and Over by Puff Johnson. Lyrics under the cut. :3

Original source here. Emphasis mine.

So you stood there on the corner
With your suitcase in your hand
Ready to quit this place
There were just too many people
With too little left to lose
You were just one more face
But you weren’t born to give up easy
You weren’t raised to just lie down

And you saw the sun that rises up for more
Over and over
You watch the wave that wears away the shore
Over and over again
And if there’s any justice in this world
Gotta keep fighting on
Over and over

They say God always forgives us
But can we forgive ourselves
If we let our hope die
Cause if passion is a weakness
And the silence is a strength
Who’s gonna hear the cry?

So we gotta climb the highest mountain
We gotta shout for all to hear

And we’ll see the sun that rises up for more
Over and over and over
And we’ll feel the wave that wears away the shore
Over and over and over again
And if there’s any justice in this world
Gotta keep moving on
Over and over
You gotta keep fighting on
Over and over
(All that we dream)
All that we dream can come to be

All that we lost we’ll find if we
Just strike the match
And fan the flame
We’ll build a blaze
That lights the way

We’ll be the sun that rises up for more
Over and over
We’ll be the wave that wears away the shore
Over and over again
And if there’s any justice in this world
You gotta keep moving on
Over and over
Gotta keep fighting on

We’ll be the star that rises up
Over and over
Over and over and over and over
‘Cause if there’s any justice in this world
You gotta keep moving on
Over and over
You gotta keep moving on
You gotta keep fighting on
Over and over

Over and over again
