Wonderful, meaningful lyrics.... "Win"

I watched "Men of Honor" tonight in honor of Veteran's Day and was really struck by the closing credits song which was "Win" by Brian McKnight.  I'm not sure I've ever heard the song before but I will be downloading it for my MP3 player soon! : )  I hope you enjoy the lyrics, too...

"Win"


Dark is the night
I can weather the storm
Never say die
I've been down this road before
I'll never quit
I'll never lay down,
See I promised myself that I'd never let me down

I'll never give up
Never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall
I'll never fail
I'll just get up and try again

Never lose hope
Never lose faith
There's much too much at stake
Upon myself I must depend
I'm not looking for place or show
I'm gonna win

No stopping now
There's still a ways to go, oh
Someway, somehow
Whatever it takes, I know
I'll never quit, no no
I'll never go down,
I'll make sure they remember my name
A hundred years from now

When it's all said and done
My once in a lifetime will be back again
Now is the time
To take a stand
Here is my chance
That's why I...

I'll never give up
Never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall
I'll never fail
I'll just get up and try again

I'm gonna win.

Wow! I also watched this movie today. I've seen the movie before but never paid much attention to the closing song. For some reason, the lyrics really touched me today.

Now, I think I'll download it.

Thanks!
