Fight Song (Video & Lyrics🎶)

(NotSalmon – Google Images)

I was scrolling through some videos on YouTube this evening and came across this one (below). It’s called ‘Fight Song’ by Rachel Platten. I found the lyrics very uplifting, so I thought I’d share them here. I especially love the lines – “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.”

I know you are all aware of what a difficult and painful journey I’m on currently, and I’m not saying I’m over it all yet (I wish it were that easy), but this song gave me hope, which meant a lot to me. I can’t say that I won’t need to share any more of my emotionally raw poetry as that is also cathartic, but for tonight, I’ll hang on tightly to these words; perhaps, they will give me some new strength. I hope so.

Please, take the time to listen to this beautiful song; read the lyrics and do let me know what you think of them. With my heartfelt thanks … Love to you all … Ellie 🦢 Xxx 💖💛💝

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

    1. Thank you very much, J. I’ve been playing this song on a loop all morning – it gives me hope and inspiration. I will keep looking for other places that may have the same effect x

    1. I’m glad you like this song, too, Granny. I’ve been playing it on a loop this morning as I love the lyrics so much (and the music, of course). I slept until about 3 am (too early to get up), so am tired today. With a bit of luck, I will have a better night’s sleep tonight. Will chat more later. Love you loads, my friend. Xxxxxx 🥰

    1. I’m glad you think it’s positive, too, Mick. As I said to Granny (above), I’ve been playing it on a loop all morning. As I woke at 3 am, that’s quite a few times I’ve heard it so far, and it’s not quite 10 am today. X

  1. What a splendid song to feed on, Ellie. A wonderful fight song. Very up beat and inspirational. I’ll be singing it with you. Keep going, you lovely soul. I bless you.

    1. Thank you, Selma. I’m glad you like the song. I will be honoured to have you singing along with me, my friend. I will do my utmost to keep going in this direction, although there will, no doubt, be difficult times ahead as well. At least, this song has given me some respite from the worst of my feelings. Love to you … Ellie Xx 💖

  2. I love that song! (and the quote!) They’re so energizing and feel so empowering!

  3. That’s one of my go-to songs when things feel like they are unbearable. I’m so glad you found it. Blare it! Sing it! Fight dearest, Elle. You got this and I’m so excited to see you moving forward.

    1. Thank you so much, Bridgette. I can’t tell you how much your encouragement means to me. I really do feel you are fighting alongside me and I thank you for that. I’ve been playing this song over and over, loud and clear and I love it. I will do my utmost to keep moving in the right direction. Love to you, dear Bridgette Xx 💝

  4. Very powerful song and lyrics. I grew up seriously ill and now chronically ill. I went through many deep depressions. Am grateful that at least that has cleared away. So I can relate to this song and your struggle. This dark timeline has been it extremely toxic except for those in charge. Time to change all that.

    Thanks for following my blog, I appreciate it.

    1. Thank you so much, Katelon. I’m sorry to hear of your illness and am so glad that your depression has lifted. I’m pleased that you could identify with this song and my difficulties. I appreciate that. I look forward to reading more of your blog. Thanks again for reading and commenting. Take care.

      1. You, too. My blog is about the work I’m doing with others to shift this planet. May the work succeed quickly. It will bring healing for all.

      2. Ah, I’m definitely behind you all the way on that front. I’m a very eco-aware person in so many ways. I’m also passionate about saving our planet. There’s a lot of hard work to be done yet. The sooner, the better.
