"The Fighter" as written by Christopher Marc Butcherine, Andrew Jay J Atkins, Matthew Peter Gore, Mark Edward Warner and Benjamin Whitney Windsor....
Aquarius,
Eyes so green like a treetop canopy.
So curious,
Lips are red like a hilltop forest fire.
Oblivious,
Voice so sweet like a songbird singing choir.
So tell me now,
What's in your head?
My patience hanging by a thread.

'Cause I am the fighter,
And you are the fists tht bruise my face.
This burning desire,
Her innocence is such a waste.
Her innocence is such a waste.

Feel the lust,
Tip the scales like a prison ball and chain.
And take this trust,
Once it's gone it can never be regained.
'cause it's a must,
Truth be told all secrets see the light.
Tell me why?
My patience hanging by a thread.

'cause I am the fighter,
And you are the fists tht bruise my face.
This burning desire,
Her innocence is such a waste.
Her innocence is such a waste.

Save her, save me.
Save her, save me.

'Cause I am the fighter,
And you are the fists tht bruise my face.
This burning desire,
Her innocence is such a waste.
Her innocence is such a waste.

    General CommentThis song has gotta be about lust. He wants a chick, and she wont put out. 'her innocence is such a waste' possibly saving herself or something.

    General Commentyeh after wot womack said i swear hes right! it all points to it aye! "my patience hanging by a thread" hes sick of waiting for it. shes a virgin i recon, coz of the part where it says "take this trust, once its gone it can never be re-gained"

    General Commentwomack is right all the way. the guy wants her bad, but she just isn't ready for it, maybe even scared about it. any other thoughts on what "the burning desire" is, please share

    General CommentI can completely see how you can see this song is about sex.. And it very well could be, but to me I thought her innocence was more her being so naive not being able to see that the write has feelings towards her.. hence, "So curious, Lips so red like a hilltop forest fire, Oblivious.."
    He really likes this girl and he's trying to show her but she just wont see, so hes trying desperately to gain her trust and get her to tell him all her secrets to feel close to her.. He keeps fighting for her affections but she keeps turning her back on him and shutting him down something fierce, hence "Cos I am the fighter and you are the fists that bruise my face" which is further confirmed by the use of present tense with the word "bruise" not "bruised" because she keeps hurting him..
    Thats just my impression anyway.. Great song, Saw them play at fishers, hurrah I have a photo with Ben!
