The Song

The Will to Survive – Lyrics

What’s it like to have your life change in a moment

What’s it like to have it all taken away and

Put in the hands of doctor’s that you just met

And just rely on hope to keep you holding on

Here’s a story of a journey

One so hard it drains your spirit

So hard to convince yourself that you can make it through

Here’s to the fight

Here’s to the fighters

Here’s to the brave that take this on

Here’s to the lost souls

Here’s to the new hope

We’ll keep on keeping on

In the fight for life

The fight for life

Sitting in the doctor’s chair processing the information

Not understanding how this could happen to me

Going from an average teen age life with normal teen age problems

To blood tests and IV poles and a life I don’t want to lead

Gotta stay strong and stay united

Face our fears and stand our ground

We can convince ourselves that we can make it through

Here’s to the fight

Here’s to the fighters

Here’s to the brave that take this on

Here’s to the lost souls

Here’s to the new hope

We’ll keep on keeping on

In the fight for life

The fight for life

What will make us strong enough so we will tackle this battle

And what will make us strong enough to walk straight through Hell

To get us back to Heaven where we’ll see light again.

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the fight

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the fighters

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the  brave

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the lost souls

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the lost locks

We’ve got the will to survive

Here’s to the hard knocks

We’ve got the will to survive
