“The Good Fight” by The Exchange

I don’t think my weary heart can take much more of this
We’re jumping to the end for an innocent kiss
I don’t these tired eyes can much longer withstand
The footprints of a man when there’s nowhere to stand

The strain on my muscles and organs and veins
Have all my bones ringing with sirens in pain
The timid and hungry that march through my brain
The myriad fearful all wander the same:

If I don’t care, who will?

If I can’t fight the good fight
(Can I ever be, ever say I was right)
If I don’t cross the line
(Can I ever say that I was anyone?)
We’re running out of time
(Don’t say I never tried to tell you babe)
So take my hand, we’ll try
For a better time, for a better way

I don’t think this throat can ring one more word to the mind
That a heart is bound to thump far outside of its time

The strain on my muscles and organs and veins
have all my bones ringing with sirens, in pain
The timid and hungry that march through my brain
The myriad fearful all wander the same:
If I don’t care, who will?
If I can’t fight the good fight
(Can I ever be, ever say I was right)
If I don’t cross the line
(Can I ever say that I was anyone?)
We’re running out of time
(Don’t say I never tried to tell you babe)
So take my hand, we’ll try
For a better time, for a better way

It’s the fight of our lives
Gotta try
