Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried about me
In too deep
Say I'm in too deep (in too deep)
And it's been two years
I miss my home
But there's a fire burning in my bones
Still believe
Yeah, I still believe

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

This is my fight song (Hey!)
Take back my life song (Hey!)
Prove I'm alright song (Hey!)
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong (I'll be strong)
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

No I've still got a lot of fight left in me

THIS IS A SONG THAT REPRESENTS A VERY SPECIFIC TIME IN LIFE... SAY HIGH SCHOOL THROUGH 25. BEFORE YOU REALIZE THAT WHEN YOU FINISH ONE FIGHT.. THE NEXT FIGHT IS WAITING... NO ONE IS THERE TO GIVE YOU A REWARD... BECAUSE EVERYONE IS IN THIER OWN FIGHT... THERE IS NO ROMANCE TO IT... YOU JUST PICK YOURSELF UP AGAIN AND FIGHT ON... BECAUSE WHAT ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

Sometimes you have to remove yourself from a certain place in order to grow. Certain places have different energy. For this woman she clearly needed to get to the ocean in order to write a new song. simetimes jumping in the car and driving to the ocean and meeting new friends can revitalize your spirit and make life new and exciting. It helps if you look cute in hats and are young and beautiful. This song isn't very realistic. But I could see it inspiring a lot of young people who still have fire burning in their hearts.

Yes fire helps. Beauty is a contributing factor. Youth is key.

Every generation needs their anthems to help get them through the struggle that life provides.

I know I had my collection of songs back in the day.

This song is on a constant rotation at my job, so I get hear it multiple times a day....

I will tell co-workers that although they might think this is theirs, this is actually MY 'fight song' - to which arguments will ensue
