"The Only Thing Worth Fighting For" as written by and Lera Lynn....
Change will come to those who have no fear
But I’m not her, you never were the kind who kept a rule book near
We were we like a pair of thieves, tumbled locks and broken codes
You cannot take that from me, my small reprieve is your heart of gold
We were like a battlefield locked inside a holy war, your love is my due diligence
The only thing worth fighting for

    General CommentBeautiful Song.

    Here are the Full Lyrics:

    Waking up is harder
    Than it seems
    Wondering through these empty rooms
    Of dusty books and quiet dreams
    Pictures on the mantle
    Speak your name
    Softly like forgotten tunes
    Just outside the sound of pain

    Weren't we like a pair of thieves
    With tumbled locks and broken codes
    You cannot take that from me
    My small reprieves
    Your heart of gold
    Weren't we like a battlefield
    Locked inside a holy war
    Your love and my due diligence
    The only thing worth fighting for

    Change will come
    To those who have no fear
    But I'm not her
    You never were
    The kind who kept a rule book near
    What I said was never what I meant
    And now you see my world in flames
    My shadow songs
    My deep regret

    Weren't we like a pair of thieves
    With tumbled locks and broken codes
    You cannot take that from me
    My small reprieves
    Your heart of gold
    Weren't we like a battlefield
    Locked inside a holy war
    Your love and my due diligence
    The only thing worth fighting for

    The Line I posted as:
    Your love and my due diligence

    Is actually:
    Your love in my due diligence
