SIA’S ‘THE FIGHT’

This morning while I was walking from the train to work and listening to this song, I was just looking around and taking in the sights AND I STARTED CRYING LIKE A MANIAC. Like. A deep guttural cry of gratitude that I made it through the dark. I had to stop and sit on a bench and pull myself together. These overflowing moments of incredible wonder at how good things can be. How good things are. Amazing.

THE FIGHT LYRICS

We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born

We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born
We are born, we are born

We are born
Without a care
As we grow old
Become aware

As we grow tall
Begin to falter
We want to know ourselves
Give love to all

But we falter, yes, we are human
Yes, we anger, we feed the hunger
Yes, we push through, just me and you

We made it through the darkness to the light
Oh, how we fought yet still we won the fight
Oh, yes, we stand together

A fantasy for you and me
Though beauty lies in reality
No need to fear, the truth sets us free
We’re all looking for love and harmony

But we falter and yes, we are flawed
As we play victim with such conviction
And we play bully, both you and me

We made it through the darkness to the light
Oh, how we fought yet still we won the fight
Oh, yes, we stand together

Took it day by day, worried we would fail
How we flailed and we wailed and we screamed in pain
Take it step by step, we could not forget
The wounds we felt, how we screamed for help

And the dark, dark nights when you held me tight
And we’d wait for light to rescue us
Oh, we were distressed, now we’re nothing less
We are strong, we are blessed, we are united, yeah

We made it through the darkness to the light
Oh, how we fought yet still we won the fight
Oh, yes, we stand together

We made it through the darkness to the light
Oh, how we fought yet still we won the fight
Oh, yes, we stand together
