What you gonna do when your love is gone?
Who you gonna play when the game has ended?
Where you gonna go when the bird has flown?
How you gonna play when you're all alone?

Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love

What you gonna do when you're on your own?
What you gonna have when you got no place to call your own?
What you gonna try when your cover is blown?
How you gonna fly when your wings are broken?

Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love

Don't let it get you down
Keep the fighting spirit
And turn your head around
Don't let it take you in
Keep the fighting spirit
And you'll begin again

Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love
Keep the fighting spirit of love

    General CommentThis song is an advice to all the people that got their hearts broken. Move on and keep searching for love, because if you look for it, you'll find it and you'll begin to love again!

    "Don't let it get you down
    Keep the fighting spirit and turn your head around
    Don't let it take you in
    Keep the fighting spirit and you'll begin again"

    My InterpretationAgain, Madonna is at her best when she writes, sings and cries to her audience-Fighting Spirit is no exception to the brilliant Ciccone Kabbalah golden rule. Her writing is self-explanatory. In Fighting Spirit, she sings-no, make that-cries with a beautiful Madonna/Evita/Wallis smile. Her Detroit voice is clear, bright and strong and the outcome/message of Fighting Spirit is this-we might as well sing it to Lady Madonna herself-Never Give Up Because Dreams Come True. Madonna has been a Ray of Light and has Caused a Loud Commotion for 30 years-may the lady reign forever! To Madonna-Keep the Fighting Spirit of Love!-I'll Be Your Friend Forever Rebel Dancer Madge! Rock On Lady Ciccone! I Love You, Brilliant Madonna- the Lady of Them All!
