"Fight" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson and Boris Williams....
Sometimes there's nothing to feel
Sometimes there's nothing to hold
Sometimes there's no time to run away
Sometimes you just feel so old

The times it hurts when you cry
The times it hurts just to breathe
And then it all seems like there's no-one left
And all you want is to sleep

Fight fight fight
Just push it away
Fight fight fight
Just push until it breaks
Fight fight fight
Don't cry at the pain
Fight fight fight
Or watch yourself burn again
Fight fight fight
Don't howl like a dog
Fight fight
Just fill up the sky
Fight fight fight
Fight til you drop
Fight fight fight
And never never
Never stop

Fight fight fight
Fight fight fight

So when the hurting starts
And when the nightmares begin
Remember you can fill up the sky
You don't have to give in
You don't have to give in

Never give in
Never give in
Never give in

    General CommentWhen I feel depressed this is the song I play. Pretty straightforward(so I hope that is the only reason people aren't posting about this song) but absolutely inspirational and a spirit lifter. Never give in. Never give in. Never give in.

    Song FactThis song was composed for the film Rocky but unfortunately it has not been taken because the producer thought it was too depressing and prefered the song composed by Survivor, The eyes of the tiger. This fact is not well known because Robert Smith was kind of ashamed that the song was not selected and then he also realised that the film was not good enough to be related to the Cure. So they did everything to pass this under silent. Anyway, Smith judged that the song was really good and deserved to be placed somwhere, at the end of the album Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, at the very last moment. This story is true, Smith told me this himself !

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    This song is the perfect song to make me remember what I am fighting for.
    Although lyrically straight forward, its very accurate. I know exactly what it feels like to feel so small. Music, songs like 'fight' make you really feel as though you can fill up the sky and fight anyone or anything that stands in your way.

    Lyric Correction"Don't cry at the pain" sounds more like "Don't hide your pain".
