“We Will Win” as performed by Lynn Minmei (Reba West)


**A recent post from–well, you can probably imagine–prompted this entry. After reading said post, I fell into a tempest of emotions bringing me to another state of grief and guilt, but, thanks to strong words from one of my best friends, I am pulling myself back from a state of abject pity. Anyway, this song from ROBOTECH has always been very poignant–both in its minor key and forceful lyrics–to me, and, like my fictional brother Veritech pilots, a rally-cry to never give up even if the odds seem more than impossible.

Life is only what we choose to make it.
Let’s just take it,
Let us be free.
We can find the glory we all dream of.
And with our love, we can win.

Still, we must fight or face defeat.
We must stand tall and not retreat.
With our strength we’ll find the might.
There’s no fight we can’t fight together,
All together,
We can win.

Blessed with strong hearts that beat as one,
Watch us soar.
And with love that conquers all
We’ll win this battle, this last battle.
We will win… We must win…
We will win… We can win…
We can win…

As the battle goes on we feel stronger.
How much longer
Must this go on?
Each and every day we dream of winning
and beginning a new life.

Still, we must fight or face defeat.
We must stand tall and not retreat.
With our strength we’ll find the might.
There’s no fight we can’t fight together,
All together,
We can win.

Blessed with strong hearts that beat as one,
Watch us soar.
And with love that conquers all
We’ll win this battle, this last battle.
We will win… We must win…
We will win… We can win…
We can win…
