Song Description

Written on piano with a soft emotional vocal to begin, the chorus has a powerful captivating melody which builds throughout the song ending with good harmonies to lift the emotional content of the words. This is a song about the struggles we have in trying to live together in personal relationships and holding on to love. The title Fighting was apt to this song as that was what was going on in the relationship at the time. But it also is about fighting to keep the relationship alive and getting past the difficulties of living together and getting used to each other's ways that can sometimes clash. The song is asking "Show me what I'm Fighting for" which has a double meaning; Show me that your worth fighting for and also "Why are we fighting each other"?

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song after a big fight and near break up with my partner. I was losing hope in him at this point of the relationship but still had a glimmer of hope left and so wrote this song...

Lyrics

Take another breath
another chance to breathe
Before there's nothing left
nothing left to fear

You know when your losing hope
when it starts to go
you try not to let it show
but you just don't know

Tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing here.
Show me what I'm fighting for
because I need to see
Tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing hope
Show me what I'm fighting for
and I wont let go
and I won't let go


Take another chance
another chance to see
before there's nothing left
nothing left to feel
we take another turn
another chance to learn
another chance to see

You know when your losing hope
when it starts to go
you try not to let it show
but you just don't know

Tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing here.
Show me what I'm fighting for
because I need to see
tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing hope
Show me what I'm fighting for
and I wont let go


I need to see the stars
in the deep blue
I need to see your heart
shining through

Tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing here.
Show me what I'm fighting for
because I need to see
Tell me what I'm fighting for
because I'm losing hope
Show me what I'm fighting for
and I wont let go
and I wont let go
