Triumph over life,
by Miss Abagail Mannering

Sometimes with life's
little twists and turns,
we trust in love
and then get burned.
We give your hearts
and share our souls;
we open our worlds
to fill in the holes.

*chorus****
And life's just peachy,
if you don't mind the pits.
Down the road of life
you survive by wits.
Sometimes life's hard
and ocassionally kind.
You can triumph all
if you take the time.
***********

Now, some judge love
by your rank and class,
and put great store
inthings of your past.
While others care only
on outward apperance,
and consider your goals
in life, an interfearance.

Most care little
for what's inside,
and if you 'put out'
they say, "Thanks for the ride!"
They find their pleasure
by inflicting pain.
The have no remorse
and feel no shame.

*chorus*

The ones we trust
dismiss our faith.
The cast aside
all feelings of grace.
They use what they can
then they turn away...
and ignore you when
you beg them to stay.

So, our hearts grow cold
and we want to die,
but we still hold on
to that same old lie.
We smile and nod
'cause it's still the same.
We think nothin' in life
will ever change.

*chorus*

But triumph will come
if we have faith enough.
When in our deep pain
we find true love.
And on that day,
look back on the past;
think of the fools gone,
and have a good laugh!

*chorus*
( This song was written April 4th, 1999..for my friend's band...it was inspired by the breakup between me and an ex..and my favorite saying at the time;"life's just peachy, if you don't mind the pits!")
