Die Fighting

about

Die Fighting represents a decision to not give up, and to know that even in our darkest moments, there is strength and there is love.

Out of every song on the album, this is the closest to my heart.

lyrics

I'm staring down a line
On the mirror
But I can't tell who I can see
Two bottles of wine
Don't make it clearer
Because he looks a bit like me
I used to think
That I was stronger
To take this life on my own
But then the nights
Got longer
Now I'm calling out for home
When the lights are off
And the distractions are gone
I know I'll feel it all tonight
But I know it'll all be alright

'Cause when I die
I'm gonna die fighting
'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind
Oh, I know
It's worth all the trying
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine

Sometimes it's dark
In the morning
I lie awake and cry
Sometimes the days get brighter
But sometimes that's a lie
When the lights are off
And the distractions are gone
I know I'll feel it all tonight
But I know it'll all be alright

'Cause when I die
I'm gonna die fighting
'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind
Oh, I know
It's worth all the trying
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
That love is mine

When I die
I'm gonna die fighting
'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind
Oh, I know
It's worth all the trying
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
'Cause there is a love
And that love is mine
