Fight Song
Rachel Platten Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Were wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

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

Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried 'bout me
In too deep, say I'm in too deep (I'm 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 'em loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song (hey)
Take back my life song (hey)
Prove I'm alright song (hey, ha)
My power's turned on (hey)
Starting right now, I'll be strong (hey)
I'll play my fight song (hey)
And I don't really care if nobody else believes (ha)
'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 (hey)
Starting right now, I'll be strong (I'll be strong)
I'll play my fight song (hey)
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

To all those people being bullied
To all those people who have lost a loved one
To all those people who have lost a pet
To all those people being abused
To all those people going through depression
To all those people with anxiety
To all those people in poverty
To all those people going through a breakup
To all those people having a bad day
To all those people with insecurities
To all those people just having a hard time,
Don't forget
Your weakness today
Is your strength tomorrow
It always gets better
Your loved ones will remain in your hearts
You always have the memories
Love yourself
Stand up for yourself
Money can't buy happiness
Those lovers
Just weren't right
Don't abuse yourself
Don't abuse others
Kill them with kindness
Treat people with kindness
We've all had these times
There will always be a hole in our chests
But
Let's all be each others' strength
weather you're
Black
White
LGBTQ+
Christian
Atheist
Etc
Love yourself
Love others
Don't cut
Don't kill
Don't criticize
Don't beg
Don't do drugs
Don't starve yourself
Don't starve others
We aren't supposed to do any of that
Just keep your strength
Keep your faith
Don't change because you were told to

(btw this is not my words I am just spreading them, and now it is time for you to spread them to the other 1% :)
