Music From My Heart – Fight Song by Rachel Platten.

I almost didn’t use the song I had chosen to share today, because it has recently been used in the Clinton campaign in the US election and I thought that this may colour people’s listening of it.  As I am not an American, I am still able to relate to the original sentiments in the lyrics and I hope you will too!

It is a song that came into my life about 12 months ago when I first heard the original by Rachel Platten and it has become one of my ’emerge out of my down times’ songs!  I know that when I start playing this clip I am ready to start really living my life again and not just surviving my life.  Do you have any uplifting favourite tunes that talk help to get you moving forward in your life?  Share your song title in the comments section below.

Please enjoy –  Fight Song by 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?

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
