#Lyrics Fight Song-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
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
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
Know I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
This is such a powerful, beautiful song. For anyone. Especially if you have a mental illness. I cannot tell you how many times I have cried over this song. Because of this song. Because of the beauty. Because of the power that those words held.
Now this song is not about mental illness. It is about the singer who has been in this industry for a long time. This was her song to say that she’s not done yet.
But who is to say that we cannot use it in our journey with conquering mental illness? Isn’t that what music is? The ability to hear the lyrics and relate them to our lives. How a song can save our life because the words speak to our soul. Lets us know that we are not alone. That there is someone out there, just like us who is experiencing the same thing.
I watch a lot of Youtube. And if you watch youtube, you will know that there are ads before pretty much every video. In one ad….there is a preview for a documentary for Demi Lovato. She explains how she started in music. How music saved her life. Why she wants to make music to save others lives.
I truly believe that is what music is for.
