"You Can't Take Me" as written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance....
You can't take me, yeah

Got to fight another fight
I gotta run another night
Get it out, check it out
I'm on my way and I don't feel right
I gotta get me back
I can't be beat and that's a fact
It's OK, I'll find a way
You ain't gonna take me down, no way

Yeah
Don't judge a thing till you know what's inside it
Don't push me, I'll fight it
Never gonna give in, never gonna give it up, no
If you can't catch a wave then you're never gonna ride it
You can't come uninvited
Never gonna give in, never gonna give it up, no
You can't take me, I'm free

Why did it all go wrong?
I wanna know what's going on
And what's this holding me?
I'm not where I'm supposed to be
I gotta fight another fight
I gotta fight with all my might
I'm getting out, so check it out
You're in my way, yeah, you better watch out
Oh, come on!

Don't judge a thing till you know what's inside it
Don't push me, I'll fight it
Never gonna give in, never gonna give it up, no
If you can't catch a wave then you're never gonna ride it
You can't come uninvited
Never gonna give in, never gonna give it up, no
You can't take me, I'm free

Oh yeah, I'm free

    General CommentWhaat!? Only 3 comments here?? C'mon! This is one of the BEST fighting songs of all time! Bryan Adams sings this with soo much power and feeling. And it being on the Spirit soundtrack makes it even more awesome.

    This line is my mantra:
    YOU CAN'T TAKE ME, I'M FREE!

    General CommentWOW. This song is so awesome.
    I always listen to it in the Spirit video I have XD
    I think it's sort of self-explanitory... Basically not giving up.
