Song Lyric Sunday – Fight Song by Rachel Platten

I spent most of my life in self-doubt.  I never felt good enough or worthy enough.  Being in abusive relationships obviously didn’t help and there were times when I felt so beaten down that I didn’t feel like I had the strength to go on or to find my way out.  I honestly don’t know how I made it here, but I am so grateful that I survived and have found my way to a point where I feel love all around me, not only from those close to me, but also from within.

I’ve heard this song a few times on the radio and it always gives me chills.  Sometimes fighting is just making it out of bed each day.  Then, if you can do that, the next time, it is something more and more until you finally find yourself alive and free.  There were times I lost hope, but I’m here now.  I finally took back my life.

I hope you enjoy the song and the video.  Always remember that you are beautiful just the way you are and you are worth it.

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
