Owl City - Winners Never Quit Lyrics




I've had some bummer days
But I ain't lookin' back
I've made a few mistakes
But I'm on the right track

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I'll make
My date with destiny
'Cause I don't wanna be late
Here we go

I might take my time
'Cause I find the fable had it right
Slow and steady wins the race
And I might lag behind
But I swear I'll cross the finish line
Movin' at a steady pace

I'll give it all I've got
I don't have a lot
But I know a little goes a long way

The truth is hard to face
But I can take a hit
I've lost in many ways
But a winner don't quit

My head is in the game
And the move is mine to make
But I am not afraid
'Cause I'll fight the good fight

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I'll make
My date with destiny
'Cause I don't wanna be late
Here we go

I might take my time
'Cause I find the fable had it right
Slow and steady wins the race
And I might lag behind
But I swear I'll cross the finish line
Movin' at a steady pace

I'll give it all I've got
I don't have a lot
But I know a little goes a long

I'll give it all I've got
I don't have a lot
But I know a little goes a long way

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I'll make
My date with destiny
'Cause I don't wanna be late

  28. Benjamin King

    Adam,

    Your music always uplifts me. Sometimes at my Bible study we use your cover of in Christ Alone as one of our worship songs before communion. Please keep making music and giving Jesus glory. The holy spirit reaches though to my innermost being when I hear your songs, and God is saying to me "okay son, keep fighting the good fight, and rest now". God bless.

    Benjamin King I don’t believe in god but I hope you have a blessed day

    ꧁Spice Princess Art꧂

    Amen!!
    Adam actually did a prayer over the Owl City project long ago and asked that God use his songs to touch the lives of others and minister to them in whatever way God sees fit and it is such a beautiful testimony to watch unfold over the years, as I see people comment on how Adam's music has touched their lives the way Adam prayed for it to.

    This song came at a great time. I'm having a bit of a hard time practicing my music (I play the saxophone) and this gave me the inspiration I needed to keep going.

  77. Missu memories

    I love it sooo much Adam you're the best

  78. Kapil Chandra

    I think you should try to sing a little differently owl city. I feel that many of the songs are sung in the same way. I don't enjoy your new songs that much.

    Missu memories

    It's called style and every artist have one .. telling an artist to change his style is like telling him to be someone else ..

    ꧁Spice Princess Art꧂

    Adam experiments with his music all the time. He's had all types of projects in various genres and styles....Adam Young Scores, Port Blue, Keehar, Sky Sailing, Color Therapy, his unreleased Owl City songs... but how in the world can he change his voice? He is just being himself. If he started singing with a fake accent or some random new style permanently, it would be clear it is just an act and it's not really who he is.
    I'd rather he be his genuine self producing beautiful, genuine content, that sounds similar, than trying fake personas and voices to keep random listeners entertained.

  80. Tricia Carter

    So I’ve listened to this song ever since it came out. Today I was cruising by myself and when this song came on I literally broke down into tears. (I never cry!) Along with Bird With A Broken Wing, I’ve never related with a song so perfectly. I am the type who always finishes last and is always alone. I feel like no matter how hard I try, I can never prove myself. I always see others succeeding and living life to the fullest and I can’t help but wonder when it will be my turn. Over the past year, I’ve faced many trials and kept wondering why so many bad things kept happening to my family and I. But after hearing this song, I discovered that I am God’s creation and he has a purpose for me, even if I can see it. I feel like God has placed Adam in a world where people can hear his songs and stories to uplift them. I am truly inspired. Although I don’t see my finish line yet, I believe it is somewhere out there. Thank you for using the talent God gave you to help all the tortoises out there!

    ꧁Spice Princess Art꧂

    God does not make useless things! You were created for a reason and you HAVE a purpose. <3
    I am struggling with the exact same issue and have been for the past few years, but we are both here for a reason and it's not just to take up space and exist.

    Thank you for filling up my heart from your songs in All Things Bright and Beautiful also Midsummer Station albums! I'm one of your many fans from Indonesia since I was 12 (and now I'm 19)! Haha😁

    Your songs are perfect in composition, contains motivation, enlightened, and God has used it to change my life also! I'm not the judge, but it is what I feel. I really love your Embers, Metropolis, Fireflies, Vanilla Twilight, In Christ Alone, and sooooo many more!
