"Fighting" as written by William Ryan Key, Sean Michael Wellman-mackin, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons, Peter Michael Mosely and Ryan Michael Mendez....
Said I'd move on and I'd leave it alone
But before I walk out there is something that I need you to know
I got lost in a blink of an eye
And I can never get back; no, I never got back
You were not there when I wanted to say
That you were everything right and it wasn't even me to change
Now I got to go it alone, but I will never give up; no, I'll never give up

What am I fighting for?
There must be something more
For all these words I sing
Do you feel anything?

Said, I'm okay, but I know how to lie
You were all that I had; you were delicate and hard to find
Got lost in the back of my mind
And I can never get back; no, I never got back
You were not there when I needed to say
I hit the bottom so fast that my head was spinning around for days
Now I got to go there alone, but I will never give up
No, I will never give up

What am I fighting for?
There must be something more
For all these words I sing
Do you feel anything?
What am I fighting for?
What am I fighting for?

Never give up on this
Never give up on this
Never give up on this
Never give up on this

Said I'm okay, but I know how to lie
I will never give up; no, I'll never give up

What am I fighting for?
There must be something more
For all these words I sing
Do you feel anything?

What am I fighting for? (No, I'm never going to give up, give up)
What am I fighting for? (No, I'm never going to give up, give up)
Said that I'd fight for the one that I found
I'm going to stay here while I wait for you to come around
I'll fight; you're apart of me now
And I will never give up, no, I'll never give up

    General CommentThis song describes exactly how I feel about that one girl I met in elementary school when I was 7 (I am 17 now). I immediately fell in love with her, but I never really noticed cause I was too afraid cause she was so unbelievably beautiful I felt like a fool next to her so I kinda ran away from her. Later at another school we met again and she started talking to me. She was the only one to talk to me at that school, all the others rejected me. I had to go to another school after a while, though and leave her. We lost contact. Now that I'm 17 I noticed how damn much I've always loved her and that she was the one I was looking for in every single girl, but never could really find. I don't know how she feels for me and although she lives in my neighborhood I never see her anymore :(
    But I swore to myself that I'll never give up.

    THIS SONG'S MY THEME SONG!

    Sry to bore you with this. I had to shout it out, though.
    Plus: it is what this song means to me.

    General CommentYellowcard has said that this song is not about a relationship. He says he's singing to the fans, and the people that he's "let down" in the L&S era... and so on.

    "I got lost in the blink of an eye" - getting caught up in the whole fame thing.

    "I hit the bottom so fast
    That my head was spinning �round for days " - pretty self-explanatory.

    General CommentWoah...this song's f*cking amazing... I wish that it got in the Spiderman 3 soundtrack because I totally relate the lyrics to Spidey, and I love Gifts and Curses. Awesome song and awesome lyrics, hope the whole album is as cool as this song.

    General CommentSaid I´d move and I’d leave it alone
    But before I walk out there is something that I need you to know
    I got lost in the blink of an eye
    And I could never get back, no I never got back …

    You were not there when I wanted to say
    That you were everything right
    And it wasn’t you who need to change
    Now I gotta go there alone
    But I will never give up, no I’ll never give up.

    What am I fighting for?
    There must be something more
    For all this words I sing
    Do you feel anything?

    Said “I’m ok”, but I know how to lie

    Got lost in the back of my mind
    And I could never get back, no I never got back

    You were not there when I needed to say
    I hit the bottom so fast
    That my head was spinning ‘round for days
    Now I gotta go there alone

    No I’ll never give up…

    What am I fighting for?
    There must be something more
    For all this words I sing
    Do you feel anything?
