LOSING a skirmish can signal that you're WINNING!! "Watch What Happens - Reprise" from Newsies

If something negative happens to interfere with your progress, that could mean that you're actually WINNING - and are on the verge of breakthrough! At the same time I came across this song, I was experiencing something similar.

Below are the lyrics; I've highlighted the pertinent parts!

"Watch What Happens - Reprise" from Newsies

...So here's how it goes: Once we win
And we will be winning
Make no mistake (We'll be what?)
We're already winning (Right...)
And we'll tell them straight out
They let Crutchie go or
they keep getting pounded

(Dave what the hell
did they bust up your brains or somethin'
As I recall Dave we all got are asses kicked
They won.)

Won the battle.

(Oh come on.)

 Jack-y think about it: We got them surrounded.

(Here's where I think Joe's a jerk
he's a rattle snake)

You're right and you know
why a snake starts to rattle

(No why?)

Cause he's scared.


 Go and look it up.
The poor guy's head is spinning.

Why would he send for the goons,
an entire army. Dozens of goons
and the cops. And...
(You know you may be right.)
Thank you, God.
(If he wasn't afraid...)

He knows we're winning

Get those kids to see
we're circling victory.
And watch what happens.
We're doing something
no one's even tried

and yes we're terrified
but watch what happens

You can't undo the past
So just move on and
stay on track
 (stay on track)
'cuz humpty dumpty
is about to crack

We've got faith!
We've got the plan!
And we've got Jack!
So just watch what happens.
We're back!
