"Fighting For It All" as written by and Mindy Smith....
You can try to keep me down
You can try to keep me under
But you'll never get my will,
You'll never take my will to fight
'Cause I was born at the bottom of this mountain
I'm scared and I'll probably climb it ,
Climb it till the day I die

All the things I know I needed
Just keeps me going
All the things I never had
Just keeps me wanting it more
Fighting for it all

I know I'm not that pretty
I'm only avid smart
With an overwhelming uncanny need just to need to survive
But you can dig a grave six feet under
But you'll have to take me up
'Cause you know I won't be going high

All the things I know I've needed
Just keeps me searching
All the things I never had
Just keeps me wanting it more
Fighting for it all

I never had a hero
Never met a saint
And there's nothing on this earth I can take with me
Anyway

All the things I know I've needed
Just keeps me going
All the things I never had
Just keeps me wanting it more
Fighting for it all
Fighting for it all

So, you can try to keep me down
You can try to keep me under
But you'll never get my will,
You'll never take my will to fight

    General Commentcan't believe no one's commented! come on!!
    I love- "I know I'm not that pretty, I'm only average smart, with an uncanny overwhelming need, just a need to survive"-- definitely my mantra :)
    ~ that being said, have you seen mindy? she's gorgeous... not that pretty my ass
    anyway, this song keeps me going when I'm all down & gloomy. it's so happy and gutsy.
