Fight Song - Rachel Platten



www.lastfm.de

The Experience: Can you hear my voice? This is my fight song. Rachel Platten challenges listeners to find their one match in order to make an explosion.


Music video: Rachel Platten's video shows her battle to become a successful singer. The video opens with her in her apartment surrounded by signs of frustration, failure, and vulnerability. After her failed attempt to get locals attention with a performance in a local bar she realizes she needs to make a new start and heads to the coast where she continues writing and playing. The difference now is that she is no longer begging for the attention and approval of others. Rather she offers the gift she has to others and lets them take it or leave it, even when this implies getting burned at times. But she is much happier, living the life she was made for without depending upon everyone else for her self-worth.


The Meaning: We might seem small and insignificant before the great challenges in our world ...like a small boat, on the ocean... and in our own lives, but we each hold the key ...I might only have one match, but I can make an explosion... to turning these challenges into success for ourselves and others ...small boat, sending big waves into motion. When we learn to unlock these gifts truly great things can begin to happen. It takes courage to do this, but the rewards are worth the pain of breaking through the walls that hold us back. This is my fight song. Take back my life song.

Ask yourself: What is your one match? How will you turn it into an explosion that sends big waves into motion?


LYRICS:

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried about me
In too deep
Say I'm in too deep (in too deep)
And it's been two years
I miss my home
But there's a fire burning in my bones
And I still believe
Yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong (I'll be strong)
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Now I've still got a lot of fight left in me
