"Don't Fight It" as written by Stephen Lee Cropper and Wilson Jr. Pickett....
I have no other way, there is a price to pay
For what the man will say that I was a million miles away
In a promise full of steam, it could take no vacant dream
To persuade me to believe

I think just don't fight it, don't fight it, don't fight it
If you don't know what it is, if you don't know what it is

I left my heart in places, forgot everyone of their faces
And tried to navigate a broken path
Of which I may have helped create
In any incident, this is never no accident
To stand alone and let the silence make itself at home

Ah, give it up, those dirty tricks
No quick fix, can undo it
Ah, give it up, I won't resist
My answers always this

I said, don't fight it, don't fight it, don't fight it
If you don't know what it is, if you don't know what it is

Just don't fight it, don't fight it, don't fight it
If you don't know what it is, if you don't know what it is

Where has my light gone? Where has my fight gone?
What keeps us burning when the fire is long gone?
When I can’t relate to that voice without a face
Should I be afraid or is it just a voice I did create?

Ah, give it up, those dirty tricks
No quick fix, can undo it
Ah, give it up, I won't resist
My answers always this

I said don't fight it, don't fight it, don't fight it
If you don't know what it is, if you don't know what it is

Just don't fight it, don't fight it, don't fight it
If you don't know what it is, if you don't know what it is

No, don’t fight it
Don’t know what it is, don’t know what it is
No, don’t fight it
Don’t know what it is, don’t know what it is
No, don’t fight it
Don’t know what it is, don’t know what it is

    General CommentAh, how our brains LOVE to analyze and label and categorize. It's our futile attempt to make sense out of reality. When the truth is that is impossible. The only 'meaning' of this song anyone could offer is an explanation of how this song makes you feel personally. When I hear "the voice without a face" - that to me is the voice in your head. (Not in crazy way - c'mon.. everyone's got the voice..) "Don't fight it", "Let the silence make itself at home" .. This says to me - Allow inner peace to happen. Analysis, labeling, (fighting).. there goes the voice again. Inner turmoil. And we don't know what it is. So smile! :)

    General CommentSometimes when things happen to you that you don't understand, and you don't even have something or someone to guide you, it's not always good to run away from it.

    It sounds like he's been through a lot with different people, who've all affected him, but perhaps he hasn't treated as well as he should have? ("and tried to navigate a broken path, of which I may have helped create")

    Maybe now he's sick of running from people? Commitments? I think now he'd rather see it for what it is.

    Beautiful song.

    General CommentWhen I first heard it I really though it was a spiritual song. "voice without a face" reffering to god, "In any incident, this is never no accident" I thought also reffered to a god like figure making the future. Now that I've read Deli Elli ha a good meaning too.
    haha, yeh i met the guys too. Jules is very nice indeed.


    :D

    General Commentlove this song to bits
    i reckon its about love, gosh as so many songs are lol
    i see it as him telling a chick to not fight the possibility of them having a future together if she doesnt know how she feels. dont fight it- just go along with it, see how it turns out.

    but i also see deli_elly 's views as well. top job there kiddo :)
