Fighting

I’ve been fighting

to stay awake

to sleep would be to kill

unless I dream about you

 

I’ve been fighting

to keep my dreams alive

to lose would make me ill

unless my dreams aren’t true 

 

I’ve been fighting

to save a few

lives

here and there

and maybe save myself too

 

I’ve been fighting

So hard,

Oh love,

I’ve been fighting

so hard

for you
