"We Remain" as written by John Stephen Sudduth, Ryan Tedder and Brent Kutzle....
All the ways that you think you know me
All the limits that you figured out, limits that you figured out
Had to learn to keep it all below me
Just to keep from being thrown around, just to keep from being thrown around

Yeah every single time the wind blows
Every single time the wind blows
I see it in your face (Mmm)

In a cold night
There will be no fair fight
There will be no good night
To turn and walk away

To burn me with fire,
Drown me with rain
I'm gonna wake up
Screaming your name

Yes I'm a sinner
Yes I'm a saint
Whatever happens here
Whatever happens here
We remain

Now we talk about a wasted future
But we take a good look around
Yeah we take a good look around

Yeah we know it, it hasn't been for nothing
'Cause we'll never let it slow us down
No we'll never let it slow us down
(Oh yeah)

Yeah every single time the wind blows
Every single time the wind blows
I see it in your face (Mmm)

In a cold night
There will be no fair fight
There will be no good night
To turn and walk away

So burn me with fire,
Drown me with rain
I'm gonna wake up
Screaming your name

Yes I'm a sinner
Yes I'm a saint
Whatever happens here
Whatever happens here
We remain

Said we remain, we remain

Burn me with fire
Drown me with rain
I'm gonna wake up
Screaming your name

Yes I'm a sinner
Yes I'm a saint
Whatever happens here
Whatever happens here
We remain

    My InterpretationEvery single time the wind blows
    Every single time the wind blows
    I see it in your face (Ohh)

    *my interpretation of this lyrics ^
    I think it is Katniss feeling the presence of the ones who have died like rue.

    In a cold night
    There will be no fair fight
    There will be no goodbye
    To turn and walk away

    *my interpretation of this lyrics ^
    I think Katniss is fighting with the memories of the games in her sleep. She can't say goodbye to the people that she killed. they continue to haunt her dreams. a restless night sleep.

    So burn me with fire
    Drown me with rain
    I'm gonna wake up
    Screaming your name

    *my interpretation of this lyrics ^
    I think it means that it doesn't matter what they do to her the dead will continue to haunt her. she is gonna wake up screaming their names. I think this might mostly be in reference to rue

    Yes I'm a sinner
    Yes I'm a saint
    Whatever happens here
    Whatever happens here
    We remain

    *my interpretation of this lyrics ^
    Here Katniss is saying that she has done both good and bad and that what you do in the games remains with you. It changes you.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about standing up under oppression. It could be someone who was a societal reformer who worked to fix a broken system. As this song was on the Catching Fire Soundtrack, I think it's easy to relate this to Katniss saying this to President Snow. But I think it works for others who fight for revolution. It could relate to Nelson Mandela who fought Apartheid. He "remained" in spite of everything the oppressive government tried to do to him. They thought they could silence his movement. But they were wrong. RIP Nelson Mandela.
