Late To The Party – Rachel Platten’s Fight Song

Rachel Platten - Fight SongI imagine I’m going to catch a bit of flack on this one as it proves just how out of touch I am but that’s OK. If you know anything about me you know my iPod (which is ancient) is full of stuff like Zeppelin, Floyd, Van Halen and Jackopierce and the occasional “new” song. I saw Rachel Platten perform “Fight Song” on New Year’s Eve during one of the far-too-long extravaganzas and it caught my ear.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to take a peak at the lyrics but they’re rather inspiring and me being such a lyrics geek I really do appreciate them.

The song itself was released as a single on February 19, 2015. It appears on her third album titled Wildfire. I’m sure for those that listen to the radio with some regularity this may already have reached the overplayed status but for this out of touch guy it’s super catchy. It doesn’t hurt that Rachel is damn fine to look at too 😉

“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?

Rachel Platten - Fight Song AlbumThis 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?

Rachel Platten - WildfireThis 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 (Hey!)
Take back my life song (Hey!)
Prove I’m alright song (Hey!)
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

No I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
