      I apologise if this has already been done! But I couldn’t find one and was inspired by the recent threads about songs that remind us of them.

      So what are your fight songs? The ones that life you up and make you feel amazing?

      My top one – I’m taking it back and owning it. Foo Fighters – The Pretender.

      “What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will never surrender?”

      “Running Up That Hill”

      “If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.
      If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.”

      It doesn’t hurt me.
      Do you want to feel how it feels?
      Do you want to know that it doesn’t hurt me?
      Do you want to hear about the deal that I’m making?
      You, it’s you and me.

      And if I only could,
      I’d make a deal with God,
      And I’d get him to swap our places,
      Be running up that road,
      Be running up that hill,
      Be running up that building.
      If I only could, oh…

      You don’t want to hurt me,
      But see how deep the bullet lies.
      Unaware I’m tearing you asunder.
      Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts.

      Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
      Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?
      You, it’s you and me.
      It’s you and me won’t be unhappy.

      And if I only could,
      I’d make a deal with God,
      And I’d get him to swap our places,
      Be running up that road,
      Be running up that hill,
      Be running up that building,
      Say, if I only could, oh…

      You,
      It’s you and me,
      It’s you and me won’t be unhappy.

      “C’mon, baby, c’mon darling,
      Let me steal this moment from you now.
      C’mon, angel, c’mon, c’mon, darling,
      Let’s exchange the experience, oh…”

      And if I only could,
      I’d make a deal with God,
      And I’d get him to swap our places,
      Be running up that road,
      Be running up that hill,
      With no problems.

      And if I only could,
      I’d make a deal with God,
      And I’d get him to swap our places,
      Be running up that road,
      Be running up that hill,
      With no problems.

      And if I only could,
      I’d make a deal with God,
      And I’d get him to swap our places,
      Be running up that road,
      Be running up that hill,
      With no problems.

      If I only could
      Be running up that hill
      With no problems…

      “If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.
      If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.”

      Stronger

      “You know the bed feels warmer
      Sleeping here alone
      You know I dream in color
      And do the things I want

      You think you got the best of me
      Think you’ve had the last laugh
      Bet you think that everything good is gone
      Think you left me broken down
      Think that I’d come running back
      Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong

      What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
      Stand a little taller
      Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
      What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
      Footsteps even lighter
      Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

      What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
      Just me, myself and I
      What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
      Stand a little taller
      Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone.”

    • #17117

      Both beautiful songs 🙂 🙂

      Such perfect lyrics!

    • #17120

      I like this one aswell…it’s a bit more of a raaahhhh song.

      “Had Enough”

      Milk it for all it’s worth.
      Make sure you get there first.
      The apple of your eye.
      The rotten core inside.
      We are all prisoners.
      Things couldn’t get much worse.
      I’ve had it up to here, you know your end is near.

      Destiny’s Child – Survivor

      “Now that you’re out of my life
      I’m so much better
      You thought that I’d be weak without you
      But I’m stronger
      You thought that I’d be broke without you
      But I’m richer
      You thought that I’d be sad without you
      I laugh harder

       

      (detail removed by moderator)

      Seriously, this song could not be any more relavant to me at this point in my life.

        Hi Little British Phoenix,

        I love this thread and find it really inspiring sadly I have to moderate due to copyright law… The title of the song or a few lines is fine but a substantial amount is a breach of copyright on a public forum.

        Thank you for your understanding.

        Best wishes,

      Jamelia – Thank you.

      The fights, those nights
      I tried to pretend it don’t hurt
      The way, I prayed
      Someday that you would love me
      Really, completely
      Just how I wanted it to be
      But no, so wrong
      Can’t believe I stayed with you so long

      You hit, you spit, you split, ever-y bit of me,
      You stole, you broke, you’re cold
      You’re such a joke to me,
      For every last bruise you gave me
      For every time I sat in tears
      For the million ways you hurt me
      I just wanna tell you this
      You broke my world, made me strong
      Thank you
      Messed up my dreams, made me strong
      Thank you

      “…This is for my girls all around the world
      Who’ve come across a man who don’t respect your worth
      Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
      So what do we do girls?
      Shout out loud!
      Letting them know we’re gonna stand our ground
      Lift your hands high and wave them proud
      Take a deep breath and say it loud
      Never can, never will, can’t hold us down …”

      “I can’t believe I believed
      Everything we had would last
      So young and naive for me to think
      She was from your past
      Silly of me to dream of
      One day having your kids
      Love is so blind
      It feels right when it’s wrong

      I can’t believe I fell for your schemes
      I’m smarter than that
      So young and naive to believe that with me
      You’re a changed man… “

      I’m talking loud, not saying much
      I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
      You shoot me down, but I get up

      I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose
      Fire away, fire away
      Ricochet, you take your aim
      Fire away, fire away
      You shoot me down but I won’t fall
      I am titanium
      You shoot me down but I won’t fall

      My other fave:-

      Roar – Katy Perry

      I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
      Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
      So I sit quietly, agree politely
      I guess that I forgot I had a choice
      I let you push me past the breaking point
      I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

      Swallow I haven’t heard that song in so many years!! 🙂

      Something inside so strong, I know that I can make it. Though you’re doing me wrong so wrong, thought that my pride was gone, Oh no, something inside so strong. There’s something inside so strong. <3

      Emeli Sandě read all about it part 3

      You’ve got the words to change a nation
      But you’re biting your tongue
      You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence
      Afraid you’ll say something wrong
      If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

      So come on, come on
      Come on, come on

      You’ve got a heart as loud as lions
      So why let your voice be tamed?
      Maybe we’re a little different
      There’s no need to be ashamed
      You’ve got the light to fight the shadows
      So stop hiding it away

      Come on, come on

      Katy Perry – By The Grace of God

      Thought I wasn’t enough
      Found I wasn’t so tough
      Laying on the bathroom floor
      We were living on a fault line
      And I felt the fault was all mine
      Couldn’t take it anymore

      By the grace of God
      There was no other way
      I picked myself back up
      I knew I had to stay
      I put one foot in front of the other
      And I looked in the mirror
      And decided to stay
      Wasn’t gonna let love take me out that way

      I know I am enough
      Possible to be loved

      Also, Alanis Morisette, That I would be good

      that I would be good even if I did nothing
      that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
      that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
      that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

      that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
      that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
      that I would be great if I was no longer queen
      that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

      that I would be loved even when I numb myself
      that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
      that I would be loved even when I was fuming
      that I would be good even if I was clingy

      that I would be good even if I lost sanity
      that I would be good
      whether with or without you

      and Taylor Swift, Dear John

      Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
      Counting my footsteps,
      Praying the floor won’t fall through, again
      My mother accused me of losing my mind,
      But I swore I was fine, you paint me a blue sky
      And go back and turn it to rain
      And I lived in your chess game,
      But you changed the rules every day
      Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone
      Tonight, well I stopped picking up, and this song is to let you know why

      Dear John, I see it all now that you’re gone
      Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?
      The girl in the dress, cried the whole way home, I should’ve known

      Well maybe it’s me and my blind optimism to blame
      Maybe it’s you and your sick need to give love then take it away
      And you’ll add my name to your long list of traitors who don’t understand
      And I’ll look back and regret how I ignored when they said “run as fast as you can”

      You broke me in pieces, you cherished each b**w;

      Warrior by Demi Lovato

      Cause all the pain and the truth
      I wear like a battle wound
      So ashamed, so confused
      I’m not broken or bruised

      ‘Cause now I’m a warrior
      Now I’ve got thicker skin
      I’m a warrior
      I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
      And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in
      I’m a warrior
      And you can never hurt me
