Song Description

This song draws an analogy to "the old man in the sea." The principal idea is one of perseverance. He's having trouble closing the deal with her, and he's letting her know that he won't give up easily.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.

Lyrics

VERSE
He was out there all alone, staring down a big fish
When he knew it was on his line; he had nothing but one wish
He tied it to his boat to get it home, but the sharks got all but the bones

PRE-CHORUS
Now he never gave up; he just went back for more
Watch and see; I'm gonna be just like him

CHORUS
I'm just like that old man in the sea
Hell, yes, that's a hard thing to be
I'm just a guy who came from nowhere
Started from nothing; took what was there
And I'm not giving up without a fight

VERSE
I was out there feeling all alone, in the dark, then you came along
When I felt you were mine all mine, believing commitment was strong
I asked you for together forever, but you rejected my love song

PRE-CHORUS
Seems you still have some thoughts for someone else
But I'll make you see love should be me

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
Sometimes love tries so hard to slip away
But if it's real, it's worth fighting for

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, I started from nothing; took what was there
And I'm not giving up without a fight
